hangar 9 rv-8 maiden


Finally had a proper maiden of the rv8 with 4s 5000 and 10 (!) oz of ballast in the nose. The turnigy g25 710kv had plenty of power for scale/sport flying. If I had to do it over, I'd probably go for a 6s setup. Taxiing in the grass was a breeze. Half flap takeoffs were easy and full flap low passes were gorgeous. Soft field landings were a non-event.

go ahead and try
I just received one of these ARF's from a friend. Lovely looking airframe! i suspected that the 4s 4000 wouldn't be enough weight. 10oz is a serious amount of ballast!!!

My setup uses 6s 5000mAh, NTM 50/50 580Kv, 100A ESC and 14/7 sport prop. Hoping this set up will work out without having to add weight to balance....
