Went out to the field this evening to play with the mobius camera I just got. video is a bit lengthy, I flew the whole battery at 1150rpms. 12s/4350 flown to 3600mah used via telemetry capacity alert. not very smooth due to wind, but good test of the camera at least

Hey Gary,

Just for reference, what is the approximate weight of your stretched E5?

Thanks

Marco

roughly 9.75 lbs. 4.45kg
I use a lighter weight motor than most, a little HV80 ESC , lighter weight servos that are actually for cars (saves roughly an ounce per servo), and lighter weight batteries. No rx battery, use a castle BEC. The 4350 cells have the highest energy density in the flightpower line in the capacity range that is appropriate. With the currents I draw, I could use an HV60 ESC and save a few more grams, but the machine would be tailheavy. I'm a bit picky about weight

Freakin awesome, That was very impressive and the setup is nice. My Logo 600se V2 is setup nicely as well....
Scorpion 4035-560kv motor
Edge 100amp esc
Savoy 1257 and 58 servos
WR Because
7s TP packs....I can get roughly 10 min, nothing as graceful as your flight but I'm considering going 8s for a little longer flight time.

The logo is a nice lightweight machine. when I sold all my thunder tiger stuff a couple years ago and looked around, my short list boiled down to the logo and stretched synergy E5. I had one of the first logo 600's in the country years ago and liked it, but wanted something different, large tail output shaft, ability to spin the tail up, and good parts support. I like Ralf, but he's changed distribution multiple times, and with Synergy, parts are never an issue. Matt and Amy are great folks too, and I like that they're based in this country. Your 7S setup must be very light. i prefer high voltage setups due to the efficiency, but it's difficult because the needed gearing for LHS is way out of the norm, hence the rewound, lower KV motor. There are a couple other motors available near this KV, but of course they're big, heavy, and have high IO's, so not very efficient at the lower power levels.
I've been asked "why 12S?", and the response is "Because I can't go 13"

Hey Gary....I'm baa acckk ;-)

I just ordered a Goblin 770 Sport and I intend to set it up for lower headspeed work. Will be pulling my old Caliber 90 motor but I have a Castle 120 on the way for power. The Sport model is standard with a triblade tail, so that's awesome for LHS work out of the box. I am using the newer Turnigy Compact Lipos, 12S 6200, 850g, 45C.
Maybe see ya round!

And I hear it is not a good idea to stand in line behind him either, at events. Best to grab a lawnchair and just sit back, enjoy the show!!

Very nice, I just picked up another Diabolo and this is what I'm looking at for low head speed:
Xera 4530-500kv motor
Align 130a esc
BLS 451 and 251 servos running at 6 volts
Main gear 196/pinion 15
60%-1332
65%-1373
70%-1415
75%-1456
80%-1498
85%-1540
90%-1581
95%-1623......what do you think??

If it truly has a 13.0 gear ratio that setup should be great, calcs to right at 1700 max. Should be very efficient at the rpms you want to run

I still prefer this slow precision flying over the hard core stuff. It's very relaxing and beautiful to watch.
Nice job as always gary
