From original 12 S going down to 6 S, slightly longer take off but still lot of fun. I'm stuck now with so many 6 S power plants I don't know what to do with it, great model to test it on.

Testing the battery in extreme hot conditions, 40 degrees and hardly a breeze, love it!

Hi Rog, certainly different plane to keep it up with only some 1/2 power compare to 12S I use to run it on but at same AUW. I'm stuck now with so many 6S set ups after all the upgrades over the years, I'll better start using them, Cheers.

Pretty decent flight time at 5 minutes on full stick to keep this 4 kilo, almost 7 feet long model up on 90mm/6S set up.

Today flying it with lighter 6S/6000/65+C at 1250 grams pack, lighter but shorter flight time.

Just received the latest Stumax fan unit still at prototype stage so I pulled out my recently fitted FW 6S power set up in this model and going back to 8S to check it up. Sounds and runs great after few static test runs to see few figures.

My way of celebrating the ANZAC Day at the beach today, running on 8S with SM89, smooth as a silk.

Took it out for few more flying sessions today, perfect cool conditions, but this thing sucks amps just like if there was no tomorrow! Little too large and heavy for the multi blade power unit.

Time for a change again, Stumax 8S fan is out and back to the Freewing 12b/6S. The good thing is I can use in this model some huge capacity batteries. After quick check run the amps are pretty high on 6S @110Amps but pretty good thrust on this low voltage peak at 3.2 kilos. At 4+kg, AUW it's not to bad for more action off the beach.

Back in the air with the 90mm, Freewing 12b, unit on 6S. Still under high current draw but lover voltage. While having 6 times more 6S packs than 4cell ones, this power unit will be more practical.

How fast are your planes? They don't seem super fast compared to how much power you're putting in. I bet you could get away with half the power and the same performance if you hade bigger fans, like 160 mm.
