@Infernal Bill, MFD doesn't know your address.
(what I wrote before was a mistake, it was about a different replacement to a different person also named Bill - sorry for the mess)

Hand Launch Still An Option??


Anyone hand launched a Crosswind weighing around the 5kg mark yet?

HI, my AUW 5,3 kgs - had a huge number of taking offs. motor 6s 11X8 or 12X6 prop, flying awesome, but take-off is always from a launch dolly, had a few unsuccessful hand launch- so that's making me feel uncomfortable in that sort of taking off.

Cheers, I just wanted to make sure the airframe could handle 5kg and still fly comfortably/ efficiently.
I think I'll either hand launch her off a hill for her maiden or make up a dolly.
Good to here she flys well at that weight, thank you.

Yeah, man. I just got back in town, but I corresponded with them by email earlier this week regarding my address. I'm assuming they sent it after I gave them my address. I'll keep my eye on the post for it.

Just maidened my Crosswind today and all went well apart from a strange humming noise coming from the left motor when I throttle up to 60% and above!
Below 60% throttle I cannot hear any humming.
Strange thing is I cannot hear any humming when I power the motors up separately but I did notice more vibration coming from the left motor than the right one.
I've tried 3 different props on the hub and swapped out the actually prop hub itself with 2 spare ones I had lying around thinking it was this that was causing the noise but its still there!
Ive recalibrate both escs but cannot find the cause of the noise.
Anyone have this problem before that they were able to fix?

For the benefit of others who may encounter this unusual problem the source of the humming noise which I encountered was caused by aerodynamics.
One prob hub was manufactured 2mm's thicker than the other causing an imbalance between the two propeller forces which got stronger as I increased the throttle.
Very unusual.
(Ps. Thanks for your input Rusty)

What's the largest 4S battery anyone has flown this with?
I'm considering this plane for even longer range than my Mini Goose, which is limited to 4S6P due to size constraints (21'000mAh), so I'd hope to be able to fit at least 4S12P.
