Default Lets mod the evader

Flew the evader last weekend and am thouroughly impressed. BUUTTTT it as everything needs a little more speed. not saying its slow cause out of the box its as fast as the video, but i owned a 200 HP kawasaki zx10 and wanted more power. so not being too smart about wattage and motors. I would think a motor upgrade would be best bang for buck, but at what expense to flight times? right now its 3.5 minutes and make your aproach. my timinh on my ice 50 is medium, but the motor is warm enough i can only hold it about 4-5 secound. I know i can optimise flow inside the fuse, but i want a bigger bang than 4 hours of work for 1 MPH. learn me please.

now that ive cleaned the insides up im at at 37 amps and 580 watts which exceeds their max 50,000 rpm they recomend for the fan. I havent flown it with the ducting though. maybe that'll give it a little boost. I even polished and waxed the glass. nice and slick, and made ducting for it.

900W out of such a small motor ? [X(]

The only mod i have on my Evader is a rudder - i just had to have it for aerobatics - and i honestly dont know why Electrifly didnt design it with a rudder to begin with !
