#Great Orme 21.12.17

Thu Dec 21, 2017 9:26 pm by Gary M Jones

Good flying this afternoon at the #Orme on this the shortest day of 2017. Wind was bang on the fav. slope probably about 25mph. Must put a ballast bolt in the model. Flight curtailed by the short day length !

55" Extra 260

Post by Mark Barnes on Sat Jun 25, 2011 4:02 pm

Yet another new model ready for a maiden.



After realising I couldnt really get both 50cc models in the car at the same time I desided I needed another small model, So at Weston I picked up on of these.

`tupawere servos
Thumper 4260 motor
80amp Opto ESC
6s 2600mah Lipos
14x7 prop
Specki AR6200 rx

All charged and ready to rock this afternoon if the wind drops off

Well after 2 trips to the field yesterday I managed 8 filghts on the Extra.

The plane flies very well, the power on tap is awsome (if alittle to much at times) Im getting about 6 mins per flight leaving 40% ish in the 6s 2600mah packs so duration shouldnt be a problem.

I need to play around abit more on the throws as the Ali is just wild quick point rolls look great when you get it right but horrid when I time it wrong so need to smooth that out abit, Ele is great and it settles into a harrier quite nicely.

Hopfully back out tonight to finalise set up and do abit more IMAC practise.

I'm half tempted to dive out of work at lunchtime, and make some noise with my chopper.....

And what did you forget on your first trip to the field to warrant a second visit? Wing joiner? Battery?
