Ezio 800 ( PITA ) from HK


Yeah ! I graded this a PITA ( Pain In The Abacus )
Well , I am now upgrading the rating to Pain In The Asp !

I did go out to maiden !
And my CG was too far back , but I had no other batteries that would fit .
Also , I did mention the lack of thrust from the factory prop . 0ooooh Yeah Baby ! ( What thrust ? )

So I came home and cut the factory prop off .
Fit a bullet prop adaptor and cut a 5x3 down to 4x3 as the 5x3 was loading the motor too much .

Problems !
I read a few comments where people talk about the motor coming lose .. Yeah , I had that .
Half a flight and the motor mounts came lose .
Tightened them and then gave the screws / mount a dose of cyno . ( Cyno for model airplanes is like Penicillin for humans )

I also went thru my battery collection and found a larger heavier battery that just fits .. ( Just )
It does no effect the CG that much ! Really need a battery that can be pushed further forward in the FUSE ! ( If any one from HK reads this )
Ps / Why bring a model to market ? When no battery fits .

Anyways , now the motor is making some sort of grinding noise around mid throttle .
Seriously , for me the Ezio 800 has just been a box full of problems .. Problems that just wont go away .

So next time I go out , .....
1) Heavier battery
2) A prop that produces thrust
3) I may have to go to 100% Expo for the elevator

for the battery try 2x 260mA in parallel, maybe they fit and are also a little heavier
