brief test flight.was a bit windy.will try again tomorrow
this thing flys pretty good!.or should i say will fly pretty good.launch was uneventful.got someone to launch it over their head and away it went!.
first thing was it wanted to go straight up.trimmed it to fly level but,when full throttle is givin it wants to climb.so i have a thurst angle problem.it also wants to bank right with throttle.again a thrust issue.can be fixed by mixing elevator and aileron with throttle or by adjusting the thrust angle itself.will probably do both,using the mixing for fine tuning.

the power set-up seems to work well and its pretty quick in the air.

6x5.5 apc prop on a prop saver
mega 16/15/4  .not ideal.this motor works better with a gearbox swinging a big prop.which is what is was being used for.16/15/3 would be better
Jeti 40 ESC
3 Cell Hyperion LightStorm Lipo 20-30C. lots more power than older version (same as new Polyquest XP)

used P-Calchttp://brantuas.com/ezcalc/dma1.asp to work out power set-ups.amps, watts ,thrust ,efficiency.it's pretty good ballpark figure.

here's what it says for the above.kokam 2000 mah battery substituted for the hyperion(they don't have the hyperion)



will fly again tomorrow weather permitting.hope to get video too

got some painting done.all the white bits will be light blue/gray like the nose.need some dark paint for the canopy and rear turbines.probably do an inverted version of the top on the bottom.

Hi Joe. Looks great  :D . Is that one of those computer programs that gives you an idea of what motor, prop, battery and gear box to chose for your model. Whats it called?

Hey Joe,

Just saw the video !
Very nice, and your mate was not sooooo drunk !   :D
Nice flight, and nice music... Ok, joking here...  :D

Alan, your Pb may come from Quicktime. Reinstall it, and that should be fine.
