Could be that this setup is intended for quad copters, so with 4 motors running to share the load they can run a bigger prop at less RPMs. Using this on a fixed wing, you definitely want to prop down.

We tried to put a GoPro on the rear fuse yesterday, but it slid off sideways shortly after takeoff. Try not to get sick! :p

As suggested just above, try calibrating the ESC to the throttle on your radio. Use these steps:

1. Turn on your radio and move the throttle stick to full.
2. Plug the lipo into the ESC.

OK, thanks for the explanation. After watching the vid I wasn't sure what it was you were trying to accomplish with this. Now I understand.

Fear Farm used to be on the west side of the 101 just north of the 10, but the flying field was closed down several years ago as the property owner expanded for soccer.

For connectors, anything that runs 4S or lower I use T-connectors (the Hobby King Deans knockoffs). Anything over that gets EC5s.

I'm sure voltage plays a factor. You're running 25v versus say 110/115v or 220v.

EDIT - Dereck posted just before me. I like his response better. :D

If you are flying EDF, you probably don't want to go below 3.8v per cell. That's what I'd set my alarm for. It also gives you enough juice for a go around if needed.

I store mine at 3.86v per...

Eddy,

It typically gets 120+ in my garage in the summertime, and I've never once had an issue with it re-melting or getting soft.

Hawk,

I think that on a hot 4S system with the LG removed and holes covered, hand launch should be achievable. I think you could get it under 3 lbs easily that way.

Motor
Electronic Speed Control (ESC)
Receiver (RX)
Servos

That's a decent looking mod for the cheater hole. I'd even go so far as suggesting a third slot be added forward of the current 2. The more airflow, the better (so long as there's not too much ;)).

Yes, you pick up some positive thrust in the air as you will have air flowing more freely into the opening. With the cheater hole close, you are "starving" the fan for air.

Will,

The auxiliary air intake is the cheater hole. It's best to leave it off for performance, otherwise you loose a little thrust. But it can be installed if you wish. And yes, glue it in...
