Warmed up enough to go flying so I took the funtana out for its first flight.Went well my first electric of this size . Very impressive power even at the end of the Battery. Flew it about 11 mins no hard 3d just feeling it out basic aerobatics . Needs a little adjusting on throws and expo to get the feel right.
Hyperion 4025 12 turn (486kv)
Castle Creations phoenix 60(eliminated bec)
Medusa research bec
Thunder Power 6s 3850 extreme batteries
Hitec 77 servos Electron 6 rx
apc 15x10e prop
all up wieght 6lbs 4oz a little heavy
If I did it again I would use hyperion 4020 10turn and 5s3300 battery it is 8oz lighter than the set up I am using now.It would mean moving the rudder servo up front as I have the battery about as far forward as I can to get it to balance with the heavy set up.
The motor turns 7800rpm 1660watts 73 amps on a fresh charge but other than a couple of short verticles it was rarely over half throttle. Battery was barely warm at the end of the flight. motor was cool also
I am going to try a 16x8 when I get a chance. Charged the battery when I got home and it took 3219mah or just over 80%capacity.
Over all a nice set up.
the choice of planes was my wifes (christmas present ) but I will now start looking for my next conversion.
will try to get some pics up this week

For a model of that weight, 1200 watts should be more than enough power. That would bring the current down to 60 amps at full throttle which is the ESC rating. Try a 11 x 7e prop. Happy flying.
