    No its the kw9 from kopterworx, and it gives me 13 min of flighttime on a 6000mHa 6s and 22 min on 2x6000mHa
    I am very happy with this setup and can only recommend it

    Finally got legs made for my bird so took some pictures of it and heres the specs. I do have a bad vibrations issues to work out from the way i have the gimbal attached but i think i can fix it by spreading out the 2 backets attaching the gimbal to the bottom plate.

    New addition to the fleet. Just for fun. I feel the need...the need for speed! :)
    But seriously, I have fallen in love with "flying", and I figured one of these things would quench that thirst. After the first couple flights, though, I think I'm going to build myself a bungee launcher. "Awkward" barely describes the takeoff process.

    So what is it, Steve? And is it electric powered?
    I note the Yagi antenna -- is that for FPV?

    Andy.

    Looks like Steve is going for long flights. Similar to Beauregard's flights. Way to much fun. Steve the next step is to get a full on Antenna Tracker, like something from ReadyMadeRc.

    You go Maverick!!!!

    This system is built for a very different mission than our copters. My goal with this plane (a Ritewing ZXR custom built by Rocky Detzel in Mexico) is pure enjoyment of flight. It's got a ton of power, can do more than an hour in the air, and Rocky says it'll go 10 miles out with full FPV. It will do so using a DragonLink UHF TX/RX for airplane control, and a 2.4Ghz Lawmate video TX/RX for FPV (based on what the TBS guys are flying). It's got paralleled 3000mA 4S batteries, plus a 3S for the downlink stuff. I'm adding an RVOSD for autopilot, stabilization and return to home capability, in addition to a better OSD. I'll see if I need an antenna tracker...my goal is just to cruise the coastline, and for that, it's pretty much gonna be pointed North or South. :)
