Hey guys! (and girls) I noticed a lot of people do love their X8 but they are pimping them quite a lot... Most of the time going above the max weight of the aircraft or going faster creating flutter. A composite airframe would help a lot in stiffenin
I'm about to start building my third X8 tomorrow (crashed due to a horrible gust on launch at 6.6kg all up). I notice a lot of peeps are managing to put the batteries in the middle of the fuselage. Just wondering how people have managed to bal
Thought I should open this; yesterday I started experiencing some pretty horrendous wing flutter across the whole aircraft. It was a first harmonic, so the fuselage went up, both wingtips wend down (and vice versa), bending I would guess aroun
I'm looking to run a 6S pack with as big a prop as possible on an X8. 16 inch would be ideal so that means a Kv of around 300-350 but I also am looking for something relatively lightweight i.e. 170-250 grams. Can be geared too.
I'm opening this discussion to find all of the optimal flight parameters for an X8. The parameters I'm trying to pin down to make an X8 fly as optimally as possible are listed below in order of importance. The current paramete
Reading that the X8 cruises at 10-12A (3S) with a speed of 60km/h and also reading that some have succesfully put 20Ah worth of batteries in her, she should be able to break the 100km endurance mark. Anyone who has actually succeeded in that
