OK, OK, OK! I give up.

I am convinced CTD.

I must march to my LHS Tuesday morning and get me one of these little jewels. I have a Himax 2025-4200/gearbox combo (aluminum) languishing in its box. It should be the ticket for this little gem.

I also have an Electrifly AMMO 20-4300Kv waiting to be put to good use, and plenty of gearboxes it can be fitted to.

Default More stick time this AM!!

I got to fly a pack again this morning. I'm running the E-Flight 450 motor [borrowed] with a 10 X 4.7 ACP. It only pulls about 14 AMPs @ 160 watts. I will be putting a Himax 2815/0890 on her with a 11X8 ACP, I think it pulled about 18.5 AMPs and near 200 watts with the Himax motor. It should be more than enough power to fly her.

This morning was awsome, there was almost 0 wind, we havn't seen 0 wind in weeks and weeks. I was able to shoot some touch and go's, what a blast!!! I still havn't had time to work on the elevator linkage, but it seems to be getting better!! I still think I will work on it when I can find the time.

I'm also waiting to hear how the 480 pulls her around. The LHS has one that is calling to me. Although I know the Himax will fly her with plenty xtra power in reserve. I used this motor on my Mini Funtana and she flew real nice.

Now then, what would you call this one if you get one from Santa?

Me too.

I won my Ammo 4300 in the Watt Flyer contest last month, so it is staying put here until I find a good plane to use it with.

Well I could not resist the that darned MUS and bought one at my favorite LHS today. I've been looking it over and have to say in spite of my dim opinion of the Cessna the Mini Ultra Stick is really really nice.

I'm thinking a 4 channel setup with flaperon mix and an Esskay 400XT swinging a 8x6 APC with 3S Lipos.

Well, I saw it a the same LHS where Tw spent his $$$.

The MUS is a mighty nice looking bird, but unlike Tw, I resisted the powerful urge to spend mt $$$ on it. Saved them for H/Ls next sale!

Debbie

Did your hubby fly his yet? I want to hear how the 480 motor works on it. Is he running flaps. Nobody has given a report on how the flaps work.

MMMMMM don't wait for his report He is not a hurried builder or flyer. We are still waiting for the receiver and then there is the issue of finding the work bench again.

Finding the work bench. Thats funny, when I loose work bench [which is all the time] I just look under the BIG PILE of airplane crap thats in my gararge!!

As far as him being a slow builder, all he needs to do is toss the whole thing up into the air, by the time it comes down It's built!! I have never seen such a easy to build plane. Except maybe my Stryker, but thats not the same.

Yep, That just about sums it up. It's still under there. It's what is holding up the pile of aircraft stuff

Got mine. Now I gotta pick a power plant. Looking at the Blue Shark brushless. Seems to be a good deal.

I went to the LHS tonight and got the Himax GB and just finished mounting her with the Park 400/4200 KV motor. with a 12X6 prop. In a static run it's trying to pull out of my hand. I can't wait to fly her, the power is awsome. Havn't put my watt meter on it yet, thats for my next post. If I recall in the Mini Funtana [with this motor set up] I think it was just over 200 watts and I don't recall the AMPs. Maybe 19 to 21 AMP range.

I have almost decided on the Himax 2025 or Park 400 inrunner. The geared setups are just too versatile and I had really good luck with them so far. Now just gotta find that screamer after Christmas sale.

Amp Draw is much lower than I thought 14.5 to 15 AMPs peak ! 140+ watts. This is the 1st Himax GB I have owned. Cant wait to fly her with the new set up.

Ok, I'm starting to feel all alone here. I flew her today with the new set up. Speed was ok, not as fast as I'd like but the thrust was awsome. I got about 12 Min on a 2100 TP PL 3 cell. I'm going to try a 11 inch prop next to get some more speed. I was running a E-Flight 450 with a 10 X8 prop that a buddy gave me on loan, thanks Matt. It was a rocket on that set up, but it was not mine. I figured I'd better return it before I do somrthing stupid like crash [Test dummie] her on her nose destroying his motor. The testing will continue. I have a Himax 2816/0890 to try on her yet. I can also play with the gearing on the geared motor.

Well the 450 E-Flight was a hoot with a 10X8 prop. Very fast. Tomorrow I'll try to fly her with the Himax 2816/0890 on a 11X7E ACP tomorrow AM. That is if I can get out the door early enough. The nice thing is, I drive past our ama club field on the way to work. I fly every day Mother Nature will let me. Am i the only one here flying this bird?

Ok boys and Gal,

I'm looking for speed, I am running the following.
Park400/4200 KV in a Himax GB with 6.6 to1 motor spec 18 AMPs max cont.
12X6SF [E-Flight] and 11X7E ACP props
TP PL 2100 3 cell

The 12inch has great thrust but not much speed. The 11X7 was faster but it isn't using the power this motor has to offer.
The 11X7 only pulled 10 AMPs and just over 100 watts, YUCK!
The 12X6 pulled 15 AMPs and 148 Watts better but not what I'm looking for, I am going to change the gear set to 5.3 to 1 and try the 11X7 again. I really want to run a smaller prop than the 12 inch. We'll see how the gear change go's.

This motor GB combo may not do what I want, so I went to the LHS at lunch and purchased the E-Flight 480/1020 outrunner. That will get the job done for sure.

Dude, I love Sgt. Hulka!! Thats so cool! Those spectrum radios are cool for indoor flying. However I don't know how much range you can get with them. Keep her in close. My buddy was going to pick one up today, he flys at the dome every weekend.
