UH-1H it will probably be more so. Much more speed potential thus more potential for agility.

By the looks of the pics looks like we will have a bird that has plenty of room in the battery bay. Unlike the GWS-15 putting a 4S or even a 5S pack with decent MAH for a good flight time would be easy to work out in this bird without a need to be creative.

Easy like E-Starter!

I am thinking how to extend flight duration, will keep test how heavy of the battery pack she can take?

Hopefully she can take between a 3000-4000mah pack. If so we wouldn't have to be pushing the packs as hard plus get the bonus of extended flight time. Be nice to see a 8-10 minute range or at least have that envelope there. Not many would probably fly that long but would give a nice 7-8 minutes flight with a 2 minute buffer for go arounds and such.

That's not going to happen. Do you realize how heavy that would make the plane??? I think a majority of us are going to be disappointed by this one if run on the stock setup. That size a pack would only farther hinder preformance.

I hope I'm wrong.......but from the limited quality video I see, I see a plane who's preformance is less than the F-15, and most of us out there will be disappointed in that.

Well if The stock setup doesn't perform then out it will come and in will go an upgrade. A decent setup used in an HET or similair sized model would scoot this thing as it being foam is probably a bit lighter. A mega 16/15/3 or HET 3W on 4S would more than likely give it more oomph than the stock motor setup. Time will tell.

I don't think this A-4 will have any problem flying at 40+ oz. This A-4 is the same size as single minifan planes which fly at 50+ oz, if not a little bigger. Wing area is cheap these days.

Forgot to say, she will turn to wild, if you off the kick-down!

She also a hot shot as well!

Tommy had test her with 2200mAh 18, 20 and 25C packs very well performance when equipped with GWS 2815 BL motor.

But, the flight duration became so short to be with high C packs!

So, I ask them to try some add on weight to get similation of those large capacity packs of 12C, 3000mAh, 3200mAh .... or even up to 2200mAh X 2P.

Under such heavier load of weight, we need to see how she will be?

I'm planning on using a 3300 4s. Should be inbetween 38 - 42 oz. IMO it won't be a big deal.

You can do it with GWS 2845 motor that only pretty small current at 4 cells.

The samples shoot a few weeks ago, although the fly performance was pretty good so far, but GWS RD still work on how to make her even better before the shipment to go on the way!

We expect GWS A4 will give you happiness and enjoy to fly her proudely!
