Add some weight to the right wing tip, like a Big finish Nail, Thats helps alot, you may not even feel it when landing too, because you will be landing fast because of the power systems weight

I may be getting Older, But I Refuse to grow Up I am Having to much Fun to Grow Up LOL

I just ran up my Great Planes Revolver with a Hacker A40-10L and 6S2P A123 packs. Per attached its running 1115 watts.

Also have two others that are running at, or just a few watts below one Kilowatt.

I'd like that little "Icon" by my name

Yessir, I was there! It even provoked some snide comment from one of the dedicated gas-huffers close by!

"Can you point that somewhere else?" he said... And this is the guy who earlier was trying to hand-start a gas radial without so much as a glove on...

Yay for the Kilowatt club, Boo to the haters! lol

Does this Kw club also apply to helis? I intend to submit on the plank side soon too.
I helis qualify my blinged up Swift 16 has peaked over 2400 w.

Are we looking for continuous power? That's a little harder to do with a HEli!

1324 Watts
12X10 APC e prop
SK4250-650 Turnigy motor
6S 5000mAh lightmax cells

it's been doing well towing 2.6M scale gliders
