Happy Landings

I like my secraft canopy locks, pretty easy conversion to do. Aztech aero has them so you can order from a US distributor.

The only thing I have done so far is to cut the cone on the spinner. The cowl does supply good airflow so my motor ESC and batteries are staying cool but I have not flown on 90 degree weather yet. If you mount your ESC underneath in the cowl area it will get good airflow from the cowl openings.

what would be a good temperature for the motor? So far my ESC/motor stayscool, but I just want toconsider some baffling for the motorahead of the 4 months of 90-100 degree weather here in Houston. I'll see to geta temperature gauge to measure the real temperature of my motor to know just how good is cooling. I do have a tru-turn spinner with cooling holes.

130 and below is ideal. Up to 150ish is OK. Shouldnt be too hard to keep it below that. Mine has never gotten above 140, even in 90+ heat and humidity here in southern, MD.

No temperature gauge needed. Right after landing, hold your engine. You should be able to touch and hold it for at least 15 seconds. If you can't, it's too hot.

True, it is not needed, but it is certainly nice to have real data that you can look at and compare.

Hi,
How many are still waiting for a replacement canopy? I have LM and can not get a return phone call. Any one got a back door for info would be great.
Thanks Scott S

Well flew my vanquish first time today, have to say power 160 is plenty, first flight it was diving on me pretty bad, I set it up like the manual says .5 on the wing and 0 on stab, what you think, should I play with the incidence, other than that after I got it trimed, it flys great

Where is your CG. If those setting are correct you should be fine. That is where mine flies perfectly. Something isnt right.

just in front of the wing tube, I thought about the cg, but as bad as it was diving made me think the incidence is wrong there is noticeable up trim on the elevators
