X440 with lightweight set up: Flight Report


X440 flew great at 20.1 ounces. Started off with a power off hand toss to make sure the V tail ruddervators were set up properly. Second toss was at half power then at full power she accelerated vertically and after 5 seconds shut the motor down for glide trim. She picked up light lift and after thermaling for a few minutes tested higher speed and she did surprisingly well. If you are used to foamy motor gliders with thick wings you really get better performance on a thinner built up wing. I miss having flaps so approach and touchdown made it a little more difficult. I flew for about 5-8 minutes and only used 25 seconds of motor. The 10.5 blades draw 13 amps and 187 watts on the Turnigy Prop Drive (28-30 800 KV max amps is 20 , 1050 4S Lipo and 20 amp ESC.
