Just for grins, I felt compelled to video a test to see if the Slow Stick could get any lift
with a 10x5 prop (reversed) installation.
Forgive a few of my verbal slip-ups like prop installed "up-side down". Had not finsihed my 1st cup of coffee yet...lol
The 1600mah, 7.4v battery was fully charged (it's 40c rated, not 30c as I mention in the vid) and the outrunner is a Power Up Sport 400, rated at 1050kv. She pulls approx. 22 ounces at 22 watts (yes tested) with the 2cell -APC 10x5 prop....more than enough to get this 18oz stick off the ground due to the lighter weight than using a 450 outrunner and 3cell 1800mah battery.
The attempt was against the wind. Did not try with the wind since it started gusting...into the gusts, it did not lift......this plane will normally lift, with head wind, at full throttle, with 15' to 20' of runway.....for the test, I tried more than 160'.
Had fun doing this......the next test will be with a 3cell, 1800mah, 30c rated lipo, same prop.....the 400 outrunner and ESC will handle it. I've flown with that set-up previously, but preferred the C/G of the 7.4v better and get substantially longer flight times.
