    still got a unused 2700 but ive been using the 2200 on 4s with no problems so far,also got 4 2000 quad motors which actually designed for 4s
     
  2. The unused 2700kv is that an NTM motor? For 3S a 60A esc but if you want the option of 4S and don't want to swap esc's put in a 80A one. :)

    yea the NTM, I don't really need it as tend not to do lots of fast flying but low close and aerobatic though the power is nice to have for pulling out or a quick blast to blow the cobwebs away.
     
  4. My first launch with the 120% build I was really glad I had that extra zoom, took off nice and flat but started to stall on me, quick throttle up and away she went. ;)

    It's not just you bring impatience Andy mee too. Feel huge pressures now in order for us to complete and release the plan soon when people are expecting it even before it is released lol

    Wildthing is finishing his now. And we're racing against the time on bringing it airborne

    That's some sexy looking foam you have assembled there Bimo. You have forced me to order up a new box of MPF with all these new planes you guys are designing. Feed the addiction, I love it. :D

    I really have no idea if it could do high alpha or not it has no rudders, no active canards. The setup I wanna apply to this built is mimicking 4x2 with some adjustments.
    Really appreciate it, FlyteTime. Most of my time building this plane was staring at it, jaw dropped. If I didn't do that, may be it would be finished much earlier
    be patient there TF.

    Nothing wrong with fan Fold, it works just fine.

    Of course MPF and Depron is better but fan Fold makes a decent plane.

    I have built and flown several models using it without any major issues.

    Here is the last one I built using pink fan Fold Foam.

  18. Here are a few pictures of my SU-30SM. Wedge filled the gaps and about 80% sanded just the leading edges to do.
