Wonderful, well done. Everything worked perfectly first time. What great work.
Loved the under hex drop shots  ;D especially slowmo.
You used a bit more fuel than the current would suggest but WOW perfect flight and you made it back to land. Loved the flypast of the quad at low level where you could hear engine!!!
Great, can't say well done enough..
Congratulations on all your hard work and many many hours of work.

Quick update for those following..

Sorry for not making another flight yet! After all the up's and down's of getting the plane working, and the nerves to fly it... I needed to put it to bed for a bit, so I can truly enjoy the next flight.

In the mean time I have been putting together a new power system for the electric Fusion.

Battery: 14s (4s+4s+4s+2s in series) of 2,000mah Tattu 'R' line V3 120c cells. Should be able to output close to 10kw.
ESC:     APD F-200 which should be able to flow 200a-300a at 55+volts.
Motor:   HET Typhoon 1083kv 39x83mm in-runner.. Hopefully this will hold the electrons without sharting. We will see.

It is using a folding prop in the region of 7x12 (the length and pitch will be tuned with different yoke/centrepiece). It should have an efflux speed of around 5-600mph..but I am mindful that this may prove too much for the motor in the end..again we will see.

The plan is to get this set-up ready in the plane, and fly that and the jet on the same day..with the aim of trying to get 600kmh with the jet and 500kmh with the electric. Big goals, but you have to have dreams!
