Had a sneaky flight with it on the way home last night, I flew 4 1/2 minutes with an Overlander 3350 6s 35c. Will charge today and see where we are (although I think that's the limit)
It's very quiet (turbine like) with the multi blade fan.

Hi Dave,
Like the look of this one. How did you get on with flight time? Was the 35c battery enough or does it need 45/60c batts? I have some 3300 35c batts and wondered if they would be a good match for this airframe?
Many thanks

Yep, really like it. I have tried a range of packs up to 4250 (nose heavy) but fly it with 3350 35c Overlander sports mostly and they are just warm. 4mins. I don't taxi more than a few feet and don't taxi back, flight time is mixed vertical climbs and turn around aeros.
Knife edge is good, slow passes great with 3% down ele mixed it. Don't take off with any flap, but land with full.

Thanks Dave,
Useful info and moves it up a place on the 'Planes I must have' list 2017.
'3% down elevator' on slow pass..is this elevator to flap mix for slow passes?

Sorry, not clear. With full flap you need 3% down mixed in, gear up or down.
