Went to the field today hoping to get more out of my "EXTRA" but no such luck, its blowing like if there was no tomorrow! 30-50km non-stop! Instead managed two flights with hotted up "uss rooseyelt" -(chineese spelling) not very enjoyable but challenging, more report soon, J.

Wind has dropped so back to do field to do more test flying. While using 19&3/8x10 cut down wood prop the model seem pretty lively and after 5.5min flight time motor was just slightly warm.
After similar timing while using wider blade SF19&3/8x10 motor was very hot, couldn't hold it with fingers too long, probably around 70c. obviously loading it too much. Few attemts to hover it but not very happy about results, I think I'm still too nose heavy so more fiddling to be done. Check video, with heeps of "Roos" getting in my way, next, J.

Latest footage, enjoy the roos at the end. I'm very pleased with the flight time, after this flight I put in my 10S/4000/40C packs only 1300mA, thats brilliant, J.

I almost forgot about this plane in my fleet, took it out today for couple of flights in just about perfect conditions, pretty warm day and after 5min of full aerobatic routine the motor read 70deg/C. I monitor the temp. after each flight after all those lemon reviews for this EF5020. So far so good. Does anyone monitor motor temp. after the flights? Would like to hear some replies, Joe.

Two years on and the motor is still going great despite all these bad reviews years ago. Right size model and the prop makes it all perfect. Few more flights last few days in different clubs for the change of the scenery.
