Wednesday Night Madness
September 4, 2002
John Marien brought his E-Killer stick (http://www.ne-aero.com/index.html) and Jim Sarette got to fly it and here's what he had to say about the experience,
With the Dewalt motor coupled to a MAT 3.6:1Belt drive on21 cells with an APC 15x10E prop., it could cruise very confidently, ie. it could occupy any airspace/and at any attitude and retain location without any "dropping out of the sky" worries. Like an Ellipstick but easier to see!
Al got his E-3D up for a very successfull maiden flight, and also a few flights on his speed 400 hotliner, that was more like a luke-warmliner. There were no major incidents although there were a couple 'rough' landings and a dinged up soarwatt.
