Ya i no what people are trying to say but look at it this way ok my cub ele have a 12" prop 1000kv motor running 14.8 volts so when math its right around 15000 rpms that props spining NOW my gaser 18" prop that spins at 75 to 8000rpm so my point is ele or gas eather of them hit you parkflyer or gasser its going to mess you or some1 out so real whats the differents all but noise and like i said i heard eles that are loud if not louder then gas but then safty part in my eyes a gaser is safer then ele cause 1 batteys dont die in 5 mins or less and ya my gas plane get 10 15 mins flights on a tank so you no ok 7 mins bring it in and that dont matter on temp change where a lipo might last u 5 mins 1 day and then next it hotter or colder it might last u 6 mins or worst case 4 mins with 5 mins set on radio so yes like i said ele gas small med big add could have same result and have the same risk factor

Re: please help with video on whats problem

Well said Jamie. Thank you.

And William, yes there's a massive difference in large and small planes. Have you ever heard of mass X velocity (speed of travel)?? If you take something like a foamy or park flyer and travel it at let's say 50 kph and fly it into a person. Yep that will hurt that person. Hospital visit will be likely. Take a lager. Heavier gasser fly it into a car, person, house. The car will be severely damaged, the house will probably need some exterior repairs and the person will need to go to the emergency with most likely with life threatening injuries, ok now take a turbine. Let's use mine as an example. Mass of 29 lbs traveling at hmm let's use 200MPH. That hits a person. That person will not exist in that form of a person any more. Hitting a car will most liklu write it off. And hitting a house will most likely cause massive damage. Not to mention a large fire hazard.

So yes William there's a huge difference. Flying park fliers and smaller electric craft in parks and I'm town people will turn a blind eye at. But when you step into the realm of gassers you're expected to take on the higher responsibility of flying at a safe and approved location. These aren't toys. And should be treated as such.

There's a reason I conduct wings tests to every new member to our club. It's not to make the new member feel all warm and fuzzy to receive the hand shake and club pin. It's to see they have control and can fly the plane in a structured area and in a safe manor.

Sorry this has gone a little off topic. But I feel this has to be addressed.

It's not a cheap hobby with you get out of the basic electric fliers and things like the topics and points discussed above shouldn't be overlooked.
Go Propless!

This works both ways and is the reason parkflyers can hit the ground and suffer no damage.

And Noise is a huge factor in terms of pissing people off. Nothing gets on peoples nerves more than a loud engine flying in town overhead.
