Flight Log 02.10.2006

1. Hacker SuperZoom 4D

AXI2212/26 Gold Line (upgraded from AXI2212/34 Silver Line)
Castle Creation Phoenix 25amp ESC

Maidened: 10 August 2006
Number of Flights: 17

This plane now flies great with the new motor with the 10x3.8 prop. Flies nice and slow with enough punch to get out of trouble. With this current setup, lower altitude hovering (still trying to get it right) is possible with much more confidence. But broke the prop while doing funny things after landing on the runway. Bloody Kerb!

2. Hacker Reno Racer: Mini Mustang

Tower Pro BM2408-21
Tower Pro 18amp ESC

Maidened: 16 September 2006

I tried running this plane with a 3S battery. Oodles of power. It had unlimited vertical climb and with the heavier battery, the centre of gravity was inadvertently moved back which really helped in the climb. So I had lots of fun just climbing high and puutting the plane into spins. It had som much power that during ROG the Mini Muustang took off with a slight crab-angle. Overall too much power for a small plane and I will revert to my 2S lipo. I won't suggest anyone getting this model as it just seems to have lots of drag in the air. I will try find a solution to this and post any updates on the performance of this cute little plane.
