I have a great time with it. Can not wail to get the bigger one. I have the Yak 54 with 40 twin, the baby Mamba. I'm amazed on how slow will fly and still have great control over it, have not tried the 4s setup yet.

Well i finally ordered one, its taken long time, i had the new Pitts from HH on order but after thinking and thinking more i dont want another plane with issues, so i know everyone loves this one so i went ahead and canceled the order for the Pitts and got this one. just ordered today cant wait to get it.

i read the manual I guess it is still the same I will need 5 minute epoxy for the top wing cabans in the center to glue them in? i watched Chucks video on his assembly but they had already had those installed on his.
that looks like the hardest part of the whole assembly

Took some pictures today it was a pretty day out at the field. No video my cell was dead almost. barley got these pictures. I added some vinyl to it few days ago, I am still trying to decide what to put on bottom.
Today was a lil windy and wow this thing still flew great. harriers into the wind, tail wheel touches, hovering, crazy snap rolls. figured out if will do a wicked snap if you go WOT then go full down/full left aileron/full right rudder and cut throttle right when you do it.. I got it where i could come out of it upright headed back the direction i was going it looked awesome.

Such a fun plane I with i had gotten one lot sooner.. now i just need a good 3d smaller plane for my small yard.

Well I changed out motors I stuck in a Scorpion 3020-14 was laying around i tried a 11x5.5 APC prop on a 4s 2200 Glacier 30C pack and it hit 14.25 min voltage gave me 648.3 watts and 44.57 Amps. this was on the bench test. I held it up and felt like it wanted to climb at about half throttle. Will do a test flight and see how it performs, I had the motor so figured why not. All i had to do was take the X mount off my stock motor and it matched the holes perfect for the scorpion..

I found a post my dad done years ago on this motor he was testing it using A123 cells witch are normally one cell count above a lipo so if you need a 3s lipo you would use a 4 cell A123 pack
he tried a 4S and 5S A123s and 11x7 and 12X8 props.
58 amps and 750 watts on the 12x8 and 5s A123
54 amps and 738 watts on the 11x7 and 5 s A123

I know everyone says Flex has done all the hard work and picked the best motors for there planes, but if anyone has known me long at all on here know all i used to fly was Scorpion. Love their motors, never get hot. last forever and I have had great luck with them. So again just seeing what I have on hand.


EDIT:
just got home from the field im sad i didn't get any video i had to hurry up and fly before it rained. but i did get inflight data it was pulling 47.38 amps and 708.3watts min voltage was 13.97 flying a Glacier 2200 4s 30C pack.. man this thing is FUN to fly now its got plenty of power to punch out from a hover now..
I think I will try around a 3000mah pack tho i'm back to 3.30 min flight. leaving it at 3.80 per cell



Found dad had some 2700mah 4s CNHL packs 30C i will give them a try if i can get 5 min flight i be happy.
