Default Aerobeez 87" Sbach 300 with video

This is the second flight on my 87" Sbach 300. I replaced the Scorpion Commander Series V 130A ESC with a Castle Phoenix ICE2 HV 160A ESC because the Scorpion wasn't quite compatible with the Hacker Q80-8M motor. The motor would stutter on initial throttle up. The flight is nothing special...an inverted CG check, one loop, a high-up hover, a couple of full-throttle climbs and a couple of passes. I really enjoy this setup and the Q80-8M motor generates serious power with the 12S setup...5382 watts at WOT! Regarding the airframe, the Aerobeez Sbach 300 is a very nice ARF, easy to build and a cinch to convert to electric power. I would highly recommend this ARF for someone looking to step into a 50CC sized airplane.
