Hi Guys,

Just finished up my 1st ultra light shocky(5.2)oz. I have 2 others but they are 8 oz. any words of wisdom
before I fly this thing. Other than it is tuff to get the CG far enough forward with this setup it seems like
it should act like the others, but with less power. the cd rom motor weighs 24grms as apposed to the AXI's
which weigh 45. Any thoughts before launch??

That is with the batt. 400ma 2 cell. I flew it this afternoon just before dark other than having to move the batt forward some more it flew fine( I like to set them up so that they take just a touch of down when inverted). Don't like having to hold up elev. inverted to keep it from climbing. If there is any wind at all it gets to be kind of a handfull compared to the ones with the AXI's in them and U have to be more carefull when hovering because U don't have that instant punch out power U have with the bigger motors. I will let U know what I think of it after I have a chance to fly it indoors this coming weekend.

indoors is where the light shocky does the best and its soo much fun ... and you will almost never fly your other on indoors again unless you break the light one

Hi Guys
I flew the Light shocky last night indoors, lighter is easier or at least slower. I did feel the elevator was a lot more sensitive
even though I have the same cg and elevator throw so a little more expo is in order. It does not hover as well but I think part of
that is it needs more right thrust and I have to move the throttle stick a lot more with the CD rom motor as compared to the AXI
2208/34. things like rolling circles and outside loops are alot easier because of the low speed, so it is a keeper.

Got question to get an argument going which are the best servos for the 5 to 8 oz planes I seem to be having alot of servo
failures the ones that are .21 oz or less seem like they have a lot of failures both pots and amplfiers.

thanks Mike,

Are the Cirrus 4.4 gram servos any good? They certainly are pricy.

I don't have alot of experience with these micro servos, but my HS55s seem to be very nice. they're quick and have never given me trouble. My shockflyer weighs 7.5oz with a typhono 6/3d, and irate 2s 830 lithiums.

Hey Guys,
Well I've flown the foam away on the 540 and am now working on one of the new shockys. I picked up the Nemesis. The instructions sure are different, I think I may need to read them...lol

I know a kit who built a shockflyer Yak in the back seat of his dad's SUV on the way home from Toledo.

I think he did read the instructions though

Hey Guys,
Has anyone built one of the new shockies with the acetate reinforcements (specifically the Nemesis)? How are the acetate ones compared to the 1/32" ply? I'm wondering if the acetate is enough or should I build it like the old shockies???


Thanks,
