HK Reverb.... going for speed...

Post

 

I piked up a HK Reverb.  It is about a 60" w/s little rocket.  Hollow molded 'glider'.   Some put little systems in them and keep them light.   I am out to just outright go fast as heck.    For when I can not DS, at least I can get my speed fix.      I have a special mega motor 22/30/2e motor, which is a F5D or B or whichever is the high speed F5.    With upgraded bearings and a few other things to pump it up.    Am running it on a 6s lipo.    Will be tight and fun to get balanced properly, but is doable.

I ran it up with some 7x5 and 7x6 e props, and wasn't getting 'enough' power, so I just ran it up with a 7x10 apc sport, and broke 2 kw power... the castle esc actually logs stuff, so pulled down the log off of it and checked it out.   Attached it below.    Gotta get this together so I can do some speed flying and then get back to the other several airplane projects.

That ought to be fun. I'd like to see that when you fly it, Paul. :thumbs:
Thanks.

Saw this little bugger yesterday. Paul is going to get his speed fix for sure.

Field is dry.  Went out today and did the maiden.  Here are some bits of it…

Wow!  Gotta see it live. Keep it in one piece.

I can't believe it's dry enough to get in there and the field is dry (or frozen solid).
