And some of the Vermont now.

The Vermont with a 11x5.5 prop, 3S2P 5.2Amp was a dream plane to fly.

Great shot Patrick, reminds me to get mine out soon. Love the way the VB flies. What motor you got in there, I got the Axi 2820-10, 12x8e and 3s2p TP 2100's. Get over 20 minutes of sticks and flyin semi aggressive.

In the Vermont Belle 1300, I used my Jeti 30/3 motor, on 3S2P lipoly. Flies great for, I don't know how much time,... but a long one

I went home before the battery ran out, so I can't tell this time.

I first tried with the AXI 2820-10, but with my 3S2P (5200 mAmp total), I could not balance the CG. So instead of adding weight, I just replaced it with the JETI 30/3 which behaves just well for this setup.

Place has a great landing runway, but I heard it is busy with glow planes on Saturday mornings. Friday was great, no glow around
