Today I had my first flight on new KMP Aeroshell AT-6. http://www.kmp.ca/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=46&osCsid=877b08e35701b0f4d2abeb3df89d79a2
Power from Eflite-46, CC 60 ESC and 5S Hyperion Litespeed 3700's. Prop MAS 12x6 drew 55 amps at full power (1060 watts). Plane came out heavy (126 oz) due to adding 16 oz of lead around front of cowl to balance.

Flight performance was very good considering the high wing loading (33 oz/sq.ft). Takeoff required less than 1/2 throttle and I never used more than 3/4 throttle for scale maneuvers.

Congrats! I can't afford KMP aircraft. But they sure are nice.
