So, with all batteries installed and using the receiver battery to final balance the model, it tip the scales at 6 lbs 13 oz's, just under my target weight of 7 lbs, so I'm quite happy about that.

Re: Hoaye F-18 build

Redid the fans so I could use a higher cell count and get more power. These Mega motors were designed when 5 and 7 bladed impellers were the norm. This I found out the hard way with my Habu using the Change Sun fan with this motor. So took out Change Sun fans that have a high blade count and installed an older Air Power AP-700 EDF unit. After checking Mega Motor's website, found the motor can handle a 6 cell battery pack. unfortunately, only 50 Amp for sustained max power.
So, crossed my fingers, attached a brand new 6 cell 5000 mah Turnigy battery and fired it up. Well, it produces 1100 watts of power at 52 amps at full power. But that's just one fan, I'm sure when I get the second one installed and it shares the same battery, the power will be somewhat lower.

Re: Hoaye F-18 build

Now that I removed the retracts from the Mig-25, I think they might find a home in the Hornet. Oh boy, more work ....... But I am getting tired of dragging out the bungee .... 😎

I know how you feel John! Our field has been awesome this year, and I've had zero issues with retracts and smaller wheels (even managed to take off with my HK Vampire, which has tiny wheels!), so I'm moving towards everything having retracts in them now.
