title says it all...i built a great planes 300s extra kit many years ago.shes a real solid kit that i built before i could fly such a bird. i origanly used cheap motorand esc'.... i swapped out the unused hk motor and esc for a power 60 eflite,100amp ice castlecreation esc,and 7cells 4000mah 40c zippies.15x10apc prop.
i flew this bird for the first time last weekend and theres a certain wow factor from the gang at the club as this bird may weigh more than it should but she's really very powerful and very fast.the gang was saying how fast while i was flying and one pilot thought i might have approach the 100 mark on several fly bys and i didn't hardly ever use full throttle, so fast i am concerned for flutter and really don't know what speed is ok for this airframe
so this is my question,can this bird fly 100mph if supplied enough power without flutter destroying it
. i plan on throttle management to get 8+min flight with screaming fast verticals to dizzying heights
and also am taking the radar gun to the field to hopefully get a reading on a straight level flyby at wot.
again,i don't want to wreck this plane as its been around along time and needs to get some air time.when ever i attach control surfaces i use extra ca hings and make the gap tight. but if she can do the speed...i'll love ti!!!
thanks for any info regarding flutter of surfaces. note:the only plane i have that had flutter once was the 72"ws skimmer sail plane over powered and flown wot....i cut throttle and the noise stopped.
heres a picture of the extra.
