Finally a little progress, just been busy lately, no flying or building it seems. The new combat Baron which I think I will name Shredder is coming together. The new slightly larger motors are V-Spec 1808 2400kv from HK, HK had them on special for $4.99 :D . To keep the amp and volt draw down I am under propping all motors so I can last 6 or so minutes. The V-Spec motors will be spinning the Azure 3X6.0X3 prop , 18A HK esc. Both motors at WOT draw 10.5 amps and have decent thrust. The main motor is the Turnigy 2826 10T 1400kv motor, and with a 40A esc. Normally I run the APC 10X5E prop which is huge thrust but at a cost of battery life so to save fuel it will run a 8X4.5MR APC prop . With all 3 motors at WOT I am just a hair over 30A draw and doing a vertical thrust test she jumps up really easy so good that way. Incase one of the outside motors gets tangled in a streamer or knocked off the plane plus because there will be no diff. thrust controls they are hooked up to the kill switch.

Whoever said nothing is impossible had obviously never tried slamming a revolving door...

well we will see how it handles with the extra weight plus flight times.  I did try it on 4S,  loads of power but the main motor got warm pretty quick,  outside ones cool as a cucumber so I would have to downsize the main prop a little more.  😅😅😅

Well we had a successful day at the combat wars yesterday and Shredder did awesome (while she lasted 😉 ) . Total of 11 kills , 8 of those were from Shredder, Shredder lasted 3 rounds before being taken out in the 3rd one . Flight times was right around 6 minutes and that was running all three motors . The black Baron got his tail cut off, both will take a few drops of glue and drywall tape to get ready for next week.

Another fun day yesterday with combat wars. We only did 5 rounds as it gets closer to winter the sun drops quick but Shredder lasted all 5 rounds with only 2 midair collision, 1st one zero damage and the second initially I thought it took out one of my side motors because it started dog tracking pretty bad but ended up that the wingtip got cut and was bent up acting like a brake. A little hot glue and back in business. Came home with 13 kills , I think the most anyone else got was 6  🙂 . 2 nights out now with Shredder and she has earned 3 Ace stickers, 7 kills earns an Ace sticker 🙂 . The fifth round had a real funny ending, there was a midair with numerous planes involved and you could hear them dropping like flies and in a short time there was only 3 left one of them being me. One of the last of us said he was landing and the other guy just then crashed into him and you heard two more thumps as they hit the ground, I was the only plane to actually land that round 😃 .  I think this was the first time I came home with zero repairs to do.
