I found between 38-43 was pretty good for 3D about 20 for precision

Electric power on my 105 was put to the test this weekend and everyone enjoyed it and the AJ Laser of course.

Only the third video is of an electric powered model, the first two are gassers. What kind/size?

It's the same airplane all three videos just different pilots, as the titles suggest. Just lots of background noise. And BTW this IS the AJ 105" Laser thread so take your best guess at what plane is in each video....

^---this. It is an 105" AJ Laser with a custom GRU (gear reduction unit). Video was at a 3D fly in and there was plenty of noise from other planes - same plane for all three video. Always love to see what my planes can do in more capable hands. Amazing flying by these three considering it was their one flight on the plane - not always easy considering everyone has different radio, setup and expo preferences. I was happy that the electric setup felt pretty natural to these pilots that normally fly 120cc gas. Here's a couple pics of the setup.

I found sometimes more is not always good but every plane is different in what it needs
Since you want to balance your servos at max travel I'd suggest doing full travel and then adjust your high or medium rate in the transmitter down from there as you test what works for you. I like my rolls a little slower so I can keep up with the rail in rollers and max travel definitely does that while being able to hold nicely in a hover.

Was able to maiden my plane this weekend. It flew incredibly from the very first flight. Incredible power on the DA-120 and a Mejzlik 29x10SLF prop. By the second flight I was doing 3D, hovering and tumbles. It just inspires confidence. My one issue was with the canopy bolts. They kept falling out during flight. I lost both beautiful thumb screws and replaced them with regular 3mm socket head screws. Is there a source for new thumb screws? And how do I keep them from backing out in flight? Locktite until they stay put?
Thanks everyone.

It took me a minute to get acquainted with it because of the immediate torque that an electric power system brings. But once I adjusted to it, it was on like Donkey Kong!

It sure was on...can't wait to try the 28x13 Falcon C2E Electric Carbon propeller once it arrives - testing shows I should gain 4# of thrust and 7mph of pitch speed. Will have that one out at Nall in May.

Right on!

I haven't decided if I'm going to go to Nall to fly or if I'm going to come up and spectate for the day and visit everyone. Just have to see what the schedule says.

I used bonded washers on the canopy and they seem to stay for me.
