Eric Thanks! I guessed about 70 on the low side and 80 on the high side! That should put the faster set up near 90 or 95mph..Would be nice to break 100 but I dont think so.Yhe fusalage is pretty fat on the huck and I think the wing tips are fatter than the mig also.

If Justin can send me a copy of the wave files for all the clips other than the first I will run the rest of them so we can see what the difference is.

Justin, I have the huck back together! If you still want to try one of your big bad dog set ups let me know and I will leave the plane with you so you can fit everything and set the cg. I just dont know where you can stuff the big batteries!

Will fly for food
You know, this is just like cars.

Some people buy a Civic and drive it below the speed limit for years. Others buy high performance cars, modify them, track or race them, and gues what, they do wear out faster.

But who has more fun?

Life isn't about making everything last forever.

To each his own. Good to point out the shorter life, but that is NOT necessarily the be all to end all.

Airx- you have the videos in an e-mail.

Scott- We can get together again. I really wish the 3s 1320 PL was ready yesterday. I still cannot believe it did not get over 89*F after those two speed runs and several throttle run ups (and ROG loop dee loop!) in 4s config. I'm thinking they will be very happy in a 5s configuration..... I also think the 24A on the 16/7/4 4s will be just fine for these batts. Did I mention that they have only one cycle on them so far?? OH YEAH! I think I'm going to go sell some plasma and other body parts to get an ARF kit. The A-10, Wattage and FS planes on the building board look too far off for me to get my recent Alfa fan addiction fix from.

I'm reading up on Darrens "uber F-16" thread to see if one of these little powerhouses would be good for an "uber" title from his experiences. Definietly not an ARF, but got a couple of them in the closet anyways.

Heh heh heh...

Who wants to use a motor within specs when the things are getting so cheap - and "performance" can be had so easily ?

( By the way - it's an Accord Sport ! )

Thanks Eric!

Going for 43mph mk1 to 87mph mk2 on 4s is a bit of an increase.

Bruce- You didn't happen to get some video of your flights did you?
