Default Kondor Models Skymaster 89" wing span

Well this weekend was it's first flight. Final setup is (2 each) Hacker B50-15L w/6.7 to1 gear box, Hacker 48 AMP ESC, 16 x 10 APC E-prop and 6S4P Thunder Power LiPo battery. The Kondor Models kit is nice. Everything went together with no major problems. The setup only was pulling 21 AMPs (500 Watts) per motor. Going to try going to a 17 x 10 prop and see what that does. Here is a video of the first flight.

Looks great! Is the video supposed to have sound? I know electric is supposed to be silent, but this is ridiculous

Here are some pictures of the Skymaster with Vario 3 bladed adjustable pitch props. I was able to increase the AMP draw from 20 AMPs to 36 AMPs this provided a nice increase inperformance to the aircraft.
