  • Had my maiden today with 6S and 7x7. Launch was easy with about 50-75% throttle. The plane is insane fast and that makes it not realy controlable at full throttle. From a power dive out the left roll is not controlable and if you don't move the stick to idle the plane will be dead. At horizontaly full speed the ailerons loose effectivity because the foam is not strong enough.The foamie is at the limits with this setup.I recomend to reduce the throttle about 10-20% to get it controlable with this setup

    • Does anybody have a motor? Just burned it down on my last flight.Motion Rc does not have it on stock. When will it be back on stock?? Any hints for an other motor which fits.

                +1 after 140mph I found the roll rate got scary soft, felt like the limit to me. 8x6 with a 4 cell feels just about right power balance to me and likely the limit,around 130 ish

About 2 minutes into the flight, I came out of a dive and added power and it looked like I lost the prop. Managed to get it on the ground with no damage to the airframe whatsoever and discovered I lost not only the prop, but the whole motor was missing! Canopy flew off too. ESC and battery still intact. Motor mount still intact. Not sure what happened. Maybe I over-stressed it by adding power too early in the dive recovery, or the motor wasn't sufficiently secured to the mount in manufacturing. Either way, an eventful and frustrating end to an otherwise great flight. Canopy and motor assembly MIA (likely in the pond adjacent to the field). I was able to order most of the missing pieces, but the canopy and motor are out of stock.

                  Any thoughts as to what happened? Complete stock setup done by the book, and was running an Admiral 3000 4s.

                  Motion - when will the canopy and motor be back in stock? Eager to get this back up in the air again. Next time i'm going to use masking tape on the canopy and add some VC-3 to the motor screws.

                  The spares I needed came back in stock yesterday (canopy, motor). Also picked up some APC 8x6s. Excited to re-maiden this and fly it for the first time since April.

                  Question: Has anyone turned on the ESC braking on this?

                  • I would not set the break, if the prop ends up at 12/6 it will most certainly break on landing

                    • I got my APC 8x6e props today. It seems the diameter is smaller than the stock props and the shaft. They don't fit over the threads on the prop adapter without boring the hole open with a drill. Does anyone else have similar experience, or should they fit with no modifications outside of balancing?

                        go to Harbor freight and get a tapered reamer, centers perfectly and allows you to gradually increase the diameter for a snug centered fit.

                          Actually get a true prop reamer. They are stepped for the different prop shaft and wont over ream past the required size. This will keep more of the prop in contact with the shaft than the conical hole made by a tapered reamer.

                          • Yeah, reaming out props is not a problem at all.
                            That reamer shown above is the best I've used for these APC's and easily obtained at your local hobby store.

                            • Make sure you get the right one they have two, the standard SAE and the Metric Reamer's

                              • the apc props come with multiple adapters that fit at the motor side of the prop, this area stays square on the shaft as it's untouched by the reamer. While a prop reamer is a good choice the tapered version works and centers perfectly if you work side to side carefully,might be even better as you can get a really snug fit upfront. I have done too many props to count in this way and they all spin smooth as silk after balancing. Just put a new 8x6e on, I had just tried the gas version as the increased thickness makes it a bit more robust but it felt a bit slower and less efficient as expected. Added some additional ale reflex for my air break set up for the next outing, this works really well.
