P-38 Maiden Flight

The Hangar

I maidened mine yesterday - it flies BEAUTIFULLY! It was 20 minutes after sunset and the silhouette it made was incredible. I was running the old emax CB pack motors with 9x4.5 props on a 4s 1500 and cruising speed was under 1/2 throttle! It balanced the plane perfectly as well, although flight times were on the short side.

You are only using a 1500 4s though. I'm sure if you upsize the battery it'll fly for a lot longer.
