Gws F-15...DON'T BUY IT


DON'T BUY GWS


I deleted my video because I refuse to advertise for a crappy company with unethical values.

Kiss my butt Mr. Lin

42 amps total. The TB 18's can take the ~21 amps each cause they are mounted just behind the motors.

That's the thing. Even though it's a '20c' pack, it was puffed a bit when I landed, and I wasn't even at full throttle the whole time. I will not disclose what brand of batt I used because I don't want to be caught using (nor will I promote) their JUNK. I only used this batt because it is the only 4s I have for it's size. I need to order a couple Thunder Power 4s 2200 extreme batteries, this type of use is a cakewalk for them.

nice build and great looking model in the air...i especially liked her slow speed handling during the landing...looks like she was flying pretty fast to me...if you edit out the music, possibly someone can doppler it?...

Yup looks like it flies nicely.

The video needs to be music free for doppler.

I'll try to run a doppler test on the raw video, but I don't think it will be very accurate, since all the passes were a good ways from the camera. Maybe on the second flight vid.

It looks to be about 70 mph all day long to me. Maybe more?

Nice, congo rats on the maiden! What are your thoughts on adding LG for the ROG users?

And just so I know which battery brand to avoid... did you use "spot welded" packs ?

This is true. but it can be a good indication of how well the battery and esc were performing. Just take the low and high frequency readings from Waveosscope and add them together, divide them by two multiply by 60, then last divide by number of fan blades. This will give you the rpm.

We run TB-18's on 4S at 22 amps all the time As long as they are in the cool air of the tail pipe, no worries
