Well, I test started it with the C-20 ESC, and everything works just fine. I ran the motor for a good minute straight, and the ESC wasn't even warm to the touch. I don't plan on letting the battery get that low, that the LVC would engage. I know better than that, as that would ruin the Li-Po. As for the C of G.... she's right on those little "X" marks on the underside of the wing, and at that point she's perfectly balanced with maybe 1 or 2 degree's of nose-heaviness at the absolute most. I held the plane by the fuse and pointed it straight up and gave the plane full throttle. She really wanted to pull right out of my hand, so i'm hoping that the power is there for a good maiden flight. All in all, I think she'll fly just fine. I was a little skeptic at first because I used those standard servos and 2200mah 3 cell Li-Po... but she doesn't care... she just wants to GO!!
I was going to take her out today as there was only 4mph winds, but 2 things stopped me....
1) It's kind of rainy outside today. Not raining hard at all but that misty stuff constantly coming down, just enough to keep everything wet outside. I didn't want to chance harming the electronics, not that I really have to worry much since it's all hidden inside the fuse.
2) And lastly... I noticed that my rear wheel wasn't secure so I had to do a little re-gluing.
After reading so many posts on how people couldn't wait to get out there and fly... and decided to "go for it anyway"... then end up writing a post a few hours later, about how there plane did something "unexpected" and lost control, or kart-wheeled during the landing.
I know better that to make that mistake. So instead of flying today... i'm doing the smart thing, and re-checking ALL of my planes for any minor problems and making sure everything is good to go for the next chance I get to fly.... (which during this time of year.. could be AWHILE!!). [
Patience is a virtue, lol.
Fun and safe flying [8D]
