Now fitted with the new 90mm multi blade 'SM' power unit on 8S. What a difference in sound, enjoy.

After few 8S upgrades I got stuck with FW90mm EDF units, as an experiment I fitted one to this PROTO running for the first time on 6S only, with huge 9Ah lipo, same AUW as my original 12S power system but only much slower tho flight time twice as long.

Last action before changing my power plant.
After flying it on 8S and its huge current draw I'm going back to 6S to make most of my large collection of 6S packs. This is just about perfect model for it.

Back to 6S.

Just few of the power plants this Prototype was running on over the years.


Now fitted with the 8S set up, L. after the last 6S unit on R. New 3D printed bell rings.


With the new thrust tube.


ESC reprogramming to suit new power system.


First day out.


Perfect flare.


In action.
Another change over after getting hands on this full metal 90mm power unit, running on 8S, sounds pretty nice, enjoy.

Couple of Protos after the flying action.
Second day out action with my newly "Mercury" powered Prototype, sounds rather nice, just as quiet as my "Delta/Proto" with "SM89" running slightly hotter on 10S.

(Mercury)
(SM Delta)

Greets from down here, flying off beaches is magic, tho, the tides are not always in your favor so I constantly watch out for 'lows", today flying model helicopter for a change that doesn't need much flying space.
How's the snow? Still got some? I used to ski in resort not far away from you. Cheers.
