Fusion 50!

Posted 03-22-2011 at 10:58 AM by nwmtech

It was a pretty busy weekend as I've got a bunch of remodeling things to deal with at home and it was my wife and I's anniversary but I did manage to get out to the field for a bit on Saturday and yesterday. Nothing super special about Saturday except that it was just a great day flying. The N5 was running flawless and I was really just enjoying flying it. I grenaded the motor in the 700n a couple days prior to that so it was a solo day for the N5. Yesterday I hit the Lynden club and was helping a guy out with his 600n. Had a really nice flight there but doinked it on a really hot auto and ended up with some minor damage that grounded it. It wasn't a big deal as the rain started soon after.

I sold the 700n on Saturday night and ordered everything needed to build a Fusion 50. It should be an absolute rocket ship on a 4035-560kv motor! I'll post more info on it as the week progresses and hopefully have it maidened this coming weekend.

On a really sad note my buddies Logo 600SE went up in flames this weekend. The Castle ESC caught fire mid flight and while he was able to auto it successfully there was a lot of fire damage. It's really disappointing to hear that Castle is still having these issues. There is pretty much no way I'll ever consider running a Castle product at this point and have chosen to go with a Scorpion ESC on the Fusion.

    I'm using the Commander 90HV. It's a big big for the top mount and I'll be trimming the mounting holes off and just securing it with a strap but it's working great so far. I've only got two good flights on it but the gov is already better than a Castle without a doubt. I'll post a bit later in my blog to update with my full setup.
