Aresti 40 ARF Flight Report

I took my new Aresti 40 up for the first time this weekend. First the specs:
Hanger 9 Aresti 40 ARF
565 sq. in. wing
98oz AUW
25oz wing loading
Hacker B50 13S Geared 5.2-1
Jeti Master 40 ESC
14 2400 Cells
14x10 APC-E Prop
100 watts per pound
This plane is very responsive and felt “squirrelly” when I first took off, but after a couple of laps and a few clicks of trim the plane felt better. This plane has a clean airfoil and is quite fast witch allows me to trade airspeed for vertical maneuvers. I am getting 5-minute flights with very solid pattern aerobatics. I hope to get some videos this weekend and will post them for the list. Full specs and pictures are on my web site at:

The plane is called the Aresti. You have way too many hacker motors, I think you need to send me one or 2

You can never have to much of a good thing! I only have:
6 Hacker Motors
4 Aveox Motors
5 Astro Motors
1 Phasor Motor
and a bunch of cheep can motors in all sizes

I mostly fly at the Scottsdale Model Flyers club field on the Scottsdale Community Collage campus. I also fly at the CASL field in Mesa were all the Electric flyers go. I have only been to the Cave Creek field twice for there electric fun flies.

Can't wait to see your videos. The others I've seen from your site are always high quality. I'm looking forward to it.
