Yip very true...Even I busted my own balls today and came to the conclusion I need to start in sports class 1st before I move up to F5D...and yip it was hard to amit that! :lol:
Almost been a year since I've been in the air....only because I got made redundant, and then decided to have 9 odd mths holiday and get some of my tax back :D
I'm one hobbyking order,850 bucks...and also "a job" away from getting both "the Swist" and the new "R1" into the air....so I better get off my ass and start looking for work this week! :roll:
On a brighter note thou-I managed to wrestle old man spruces, brand new, unflown, flagship of his fleet, pylon model off him today! The "R1" as ive named it. :mrgreen:
I've got the option of getting my old mega back..22/25/2E or may look at a lngr 16/xx serries mtr for it.....but its "look for a job" 1st, before anything :evil:
Check my new avatar on rcg....id post a HD pic on here but this site doesnt recognize my ph format for sum reason... (given up on parkflyers too).

Depends on voltage.

Danks and Sprucey came up with this -

60% charged state
3 cell LiPo 60amps
4 cell LiPo 45amps
5 cell LiPo 36amps


So it depends on what voltages your battery holds. If you slot in 3.7V per cell (3S-11.1v, 4S-14.8v, 5S-18.5v) under load at 60% charge, it works out too 666W :twisted: ;)

Yip cool.With the 60% batt charge....how is that measured? eg...I have a hyperion 720i net3 charger, do I just charge the batt up till it reaches 60% on the screen and then do a static amp test,then just prop it according to reach the rite amps?

You got it man, If you flick your charger into storage mode it should put the battery into a 60% state anyway.

Not much point propping to get max power yet, as I said im still a long way off max allowed power, just prop it so its fast enough to keep up with the others, yet not so fast that you cant fly smoothly.

The X setup is obviously a buttload faster than my "sport" wasp setup, yet on the first few flights it wasnt much faster (like 10s or something horrific) around the course as was flying like a muppet and flying REALLY wide.

Flying tight smooth lines seems to be way more important than having the most watts on tap :ugeek: It also upsets old man spruce when you beat him with less power than he's using :lol:

Parkzone park480 2200kV stryker Q motor
Eflite 40A stryker Q esc
DUP 6x10 carbon folders
3S 1800 65C


Low 1:30s with average flying. 1:20's are doable. Bearings in the motor suck though so not recommended, cheap and fast setup however. Most people have a smashed stryker wreck to rob parts from.

Lots of fun racing in this class on Sunday, even in shed conditions, some of it got very close at points, there was a few moments of 3 planes stacked coming around 2 and 3 :mrgreen:

The above setup in flight. It felt like the plane was bogging rpm wise out of turns, but looking at the log it definetly wasnt. RPM is rock steady. :roll: Pretty quick.
