Default Mig

I put a new motor on my Mig and slaped a 5 blade Vario prop on it. WOW what a differance it made in flight. AUW is 6.6 lbls with spring air retracts and a 5000 5S batt. Getting 1200 watts at about 65 amps. Just about 1 to 1 thrust, maybe a just a hair under up here in the high country. I live at 6000' elevation so getting big power is kinda tough. But every time I go the 200 miles to Vegas and come down about 4000' of elevation it realy comes alive!!!

falcon5...Awesome job.

Is this the same plane you were holding in another post unpainted?
How did you cut the foam? That is foam, right?

That takes good skill and patience. Did you have to lightly sand to finish the contour.
