To be inspected and repaired. The motors sheared the X-mounts off and one of the motors had a loose magnet

What caused that to happen?

Not too sure abotu the X Mount Lucien said that he has heard of it happening. The magnet was a glue issue from the factory. They are fixing it for me and inspecting the motors for any hidden problems.

Kinda bummed it is not going to fly this weekend, but atleast it is being fixed.

Lucien sent me new motors. I installed them in the DW and she sounds wonderful. Now I just need to find some time to go back to Hodges and fly her

Has anyone been flying larger batteries than Eflite suggests? Maybe 3500 to 4000mah? The weight penalty seems small enough and space looks OK.

I fly 4s3300, 4s4000 and 4s4150.

They fly fine, a bit nose heavy, but you can trim it out. In fact I prefer the larger batts. I get a longer flight time, but lose a bit of performance

Thanks Liquidity, I am planning to go with Outrage 3700 4s packs as of now. Your pics and video made me feel pretty good about this winter's project! What kind of flight times do you get?

It depends the battery.

with the 4s3300 I am getting about 4-5 min of hard flying
With the 4s4000 I am getting around 6-7.

I always keep some power for backup, just in case I have a problem on approach.

Is anyone still flying this bird?
How much down elevator are you guys using when you use the flaps on landings?

I Know this is a fairly old thread, but just read it through start to finish. Good job liquidity! Have been flying mine for a while now,and love it! A few things to note though..
As mentioned, the gaps around the mounts to the wing leave a bit to worry about, fill em up with epoxy and its all good. Major problems with out of balance spinners, & cant get a decent contra rotating one (or even a blank) anywhere. Emailed Horizon about it, they were kind enough to send me one FOC, but it was the wrong side (Twice!) Motor firewalls are too weak as supplied, but fine if you never have an out of balance prop, or spinner. Unfortunately, as a few have discovered, you cant find out these things till its too late, then the firewall glue joints are broken and need reinforcing. I've used a combination of epoxy and small strips of fibreglass on mine. Motors are Turnigy3548, but 1100kv, so get much the same performance as power 32, but on 3s 4500mah packs. Props are APC-E 12x8, 80A esc's, pulling about 58A per motor WOT.
Despite the above, a damn fine plane, and very easy to fly, one of my favourites so far (until my Sebart Miss Wind arrives!)
