Hi Anton,

Thanks for sharing the video. From what we see, 20-22 kg of thrust is still too weak for this model.
and should you install ordinance and produce more drag - it will become a real thrust problem...
I think it is built for a single P300 or 2 X P140 and up.
Would love to see it fly with a P300 (same size and weight as the P200SX as you know...)

Cheers,
Ziv

At least the slow flight characteristics look good. Now to feel the need for speed!

Looks like it's being flown like a sport model or trying to be a Eurosport. Never looks locked in. Looks like the model needs a lot of adjustment and balancing work.

Yeah it never looks like it gets on step at all.. Maybe it's the way you were flying it intentially, Anton, but I agree it needs more power.

No question it is in need of more power. Twin 160 center mount with pipes or 300 class motor, You cant fly this without ordinance so load it up and put the big block in it and lets see it go.

Well we know it flys. Now we just need to figure engine set up and size. If you put some ordinance on it, it would be a taxi machine with that engine set up. I think the K310 or P300. Anton lets see that set up fly loaded up with everything one it!!!!!!!!!!!

K-210g 63LB take off weight. Have the 310g on order and getting with Tam for the pipe.

Saw a new BVM F-18 prototype pretty big with the 310 and at same Take off weight have excellent performance.

the F-4 flew better on the 3rd and forth flights after removing nose weight each flight. Started at 400mm CG and ended at 420mm for last flight.

Pretty sure the 420cg is going to be the number on this one. I am carrying 180oz usable and had 36oz remaining after 7 min flight on the 210 at 80+percent throttle for most of the flight.

Although this is a great 2nd flight video and congratulations to Jeff, has anyone watched it with the closed captions on? Makes it just a little bit better

Anton and John, I say it again....This is and awesome Jet

Cant wait to see the full functioning wing. Differently on my shopping list.

What would be a better option twin 16KG kings or a singal 310 KG king?

Have a great day

Regards

JB
