pull up -- PULL UP!!!
That's fine but it only gives you a number. Some motors don't come with good ratings. I've had some motors that perform well at current and power well over what was spec'd. And one that was clearly overpropped when using the mfg recommendation.

I use a wattmeter on my test stand. But I use a pyrometer too.

Heh...I did that once at a somewhat higher speed and accidentally grounded the plane right in front of the dog. Momentum carried him over the plane and he stepped on it breaking the wing in half. Oh well...who's fault was that?

Ironically, it was marketed as an indestructible trainer. Guess they didn't test it with dogs.

Ha! Trainer for who? The dog or the pilot?

I do have several tooth punctures in my rudder, no broken wings "yet"

Worse episode I had was when learning FPV with a powered glider, had goggles on , sitting on the ground, concentrating fully on flying when a German Shepard decided he wanted to play and bowled me over. What a shock!

Great videos! Where were flying? Flying foamies on the beach is one of my favorite things to do.

Yes it looks great compared to what the weather is here in West Michigan. Outdoor flying is going to be spotty at best for the next few months. Good thing I finished up this prototype 32 indoor flyer from WMPF.

What makes it an "indoor" design? Thinner, lighter foam?

It's not specifically an indoor design but is a smaller 32" version of the 44" Slick that is getting close to being released. I will most likely fly this one more outside than inside as it will be perfect for quick front yard flights this winter. It is made from 7mm EPP and for indoor flying I will be using a 2s/300 pack and a 2s/450 pack outdoors. I'm hoping to get to the local indoor soccer complex and get some video later this week.

That will be up to Greg. There's really not much too it and I guess it will depend on the demand.
