First scratch foamy build!

Postby Royall » Mon Dec 30, 2013 12:40 am

If you read Flitetest forum, you'll see this there too! But the plane is done and static tested. I would appreciate it if the experienced flyers would look the specs over and tell me if I'm going to have any problems with over heating in my power system. This si the first time I've used the watt meter but feel confident that I got good readings. They do bounce around a bit. Especially when trying to hold the plane, run the radio, and write the numbers down! I wish there was a data hold button on these watt meters. I've got some photo to post but they are too big to post.
