Micro Tundra with a 6030 prop


Micro Tundra with a 6030 prop (5 min 50 sec)


Woke up this morning , looked outside and no wind !
It's supposed to blow 20+ today !

So out I went !

The 6030 was not bad , better than the 5040 prop for sure . Might even be better than the 6040 .
Motor sounds happy , after 5 minutes the battery ( Zippy 350 ) was 43% when I got home .
Tried some rolls , and @ 60% rates , still a little slow on the roll rate .
I guess we go to 70% rates for the Ailerons next .
There was a breeze , started just as I got there ! And on the vertical the MT did get off track cos of it ..
I did try real hard to hang off the prop , but no go .
What next ? DO I swap out the ESC , I guess one would need to start somewhere and a ESC swap would be the easiest .
Just to see if the ESC is holding the motor back .

I am still using the 1106 the MT came with .. ( In case I have confused anyone )
Next mod - will be a ESC swap ... To see if that perks up the 1106 the MT came with .
My 1106 almost seems to groan at full throttle with the 6040 . and performance sags very quickly . ( Does not hold peak )
On the 6030 , the little 1106 can hold onto peak much better .
