Looking at latest pictures of the plane,  who would mistake I for a Ringmaster? Stir the pot

But, then Charles is having fun and that is the important thing. Hoff

Too far for the old DOC also.   Brodaks did it for me this year.   Besides Melvin makes me fly when I don't want to.   He is meaner then me.

Thanks for the response.

What I was looking at was a way to reduce battery weight by choosing a higher voltage pack with a smaller mah. If you look at what is currently used for large ships swing the 12 - 13" diameter props they run 5S1P 2700 mah packs or 4S1P 4000mah packs. The 5S packs are about 1 - 1.25 oz lighter than the 4S. They both would run the same rpm set point in the ESC
but the 5S pulls less current and thus the 2700 pack vs the 4000.

My point being could we push the voltage to 6S 22.2 V and say 2000 mah ish and save more weight (assuming you could find the a pack that did in fact weigh less then the 5S for the capacity needed to do the pattern) while running at the same rpm set point or does the motor have limits?

Best,       DennisT

I am no expert but what you say may work.  However I am quite sure that the same motor will not work in all cases.  You have to match the KV ratting of the motor to the number of cells in the pack.  I suspect in the end their isn't a lot of weight savings because the total weight of the battery = the available energy.  Doesn't matter if it is high voltage or high current.  The weight advantage of HV might be in smaller wire and smaller speed controller.  But as I say what do I know.

I have that engine/airplane combination.  Four ounces is a lot more fuel than I need.

Dan thanks for your posts on this subject

Many years ago I was one of the Army guys posting the colors at a NASCAR race. When that task was done we each were invited to "hang out" for the weekend with a driver. I was invited to Tony Stewart's pit and had an exceptional time meeting him and his crew. I was very successful as a NCO in the Army, a lot because I learned early how to read and understand people, making me real good at motivating them to be a team and get crap done.

Your take on Tony is spot on and I don't have any thing to add to your assessment and perspective on his "bad boy/hot head" history.

Many folks don't understand the level of pressure and adrenaline the NASCAR drivers (all professional competitors) manage each weekend. Tony Stewart is no more and no less intense as any of the other pro drivers were/are at some point in their careers

Grin, I have followed NASCAR for over forty years and seen a lot of the drivers "melt down" on occasion

You can saw off the end of the wrench and go again.  Maybe with a heat gun this time.
