120 mm EDF jet - 16 minute flight

I went too far this time. Decided to try to see how long I could fly if I just cruised around. 16 minutes with capacity to spare:

Great the way you fly this jet. I am building a bigger printer so I can print one.

Attached short video of a different Melusine (VTOL)

Getting close with the parameter tuning for hover but yet to try transition to fixed wing flight.

Not sure how the printed wing will hold up as model is close to 6kg with Iift motors, batteries etc.

Keep up the inspirational design work and flying.

The standard battery. 12S 5000 mAh. It weighs around 7,1 kg with this pack. Others have flown this plane at up to 10 kg so it's possible to fly for very long if I want to.
