You can fly with us "Fossil Flyer's" any day, but only at night with glo stick's to give us a chance to keep up!
Got to be the loudest glider I have ever heard!

That's pretty wicked!

Is any of that motor noise? Or is it all just prop?

That's all prop noise... It's a one-bladed prop, they make a bizarre sound. RPM is also somewhere in the 40-50k range. I don't think it's faster but the sound adds at least another 50mph

Troy curious why you went with the one bladed prop. On TheTick's nemesis F5D he was spinning a 5x5 APC Speed 400 prop using I think it was a 1509 or 1512 neu. Anyway was doing right around 200 level on the 5x5 and like 195ish on the 4.75x4.75. We also tried a graupner carbon fiber prop and it was not as fast as the APC. BTW that setup also very loud. The tips are are going supersonic which is why it is so loud.

TROY:

Watched your flight this Wednesday at 3:10pm. At 3:15 am going back into the shop and going back to work on the little "Fun Jett" project with lots of inspairation. Am interested in your battery make and size and controller system. Still trying to avoid complications of a BEC system at a reasonable cost. Good show bro!!!!

Awesome plane Troy! I'll bet at certain angles it goes into stealth mode. Someday I'd like to examine one of those planes up close to see how they're built.

Understood SJ. He's never been seen checking into a motel room with just his plane, has he?

The tips are are going supersonic which is why it is so loud.
The 5.5X4.75 one-bladed prop belongs to my buddy Mark F but we have both tried it on different set ups to see how it works. I knew it would have an impressive sound but didn't know what the speed would be on this much power. I think it needs more pitch for doing passes at the radar. I can easily adjust that with any of my CAM or APC props. I have only flown this once since the Team Selections in October. The guys at the field kept asking for me to bring it out.

The battery is a 3S-3900 Neu Power Lipo, the motor is a special build from Neu Motors I am not able to devulge at this time. The esc is a CC Phoenix 125 with some mods to fit in the plane. The Avionik D05 is absolutely stuffed to the gills with flight gear and the battery barely fits. There is about 2.5oz of lead in the nose to balance. I also had to modify the ailerons to prevent flutter.

Gee, have you or Mark ever used a production motor? Mark uses those 'special' motors in his boats as well.
