    The same power setting should give you the same airspeed but it is still a good idea to have a pitot to get true airspeed. Having a no bs airspeed right on your screen will keep people from getting confused that haven't been flying much. Id still rather have an AOA indicator and fly with that over airspeed though but really doesn't need to be that complicated. Do they even have angle of attack kits for the vector?

    when im mounting the vector, how do i know when its level when the plane is level? its a z2.
    can i just use a digital pitch gauge and zero it ontop of one of the winglets to get the level flight reading, and mount the vector accordingly to that?
    wouldnt that be the correct way?

    It's one of the most well written manuals I've seen. It took me a bit to go to it (I'm stubborn and have a tendency to trial and error my way through things before reading the proper way, but I learn a lot in the process). Every question I've had directly correlates to a section in that manual. Lots of times, if you go to eagle tree for support, you get a page number in response... It's pretty thorough, but there's no fluff, just information. I've found that their first instruction, instruction 1.1 - Read the Manual, is the most valuable in successfully setting up a proper, fully functional fc. They did well with this product.

    Is there any vector flight recording with the new Drak and SS power system yet? Would love to see the amp draw vs speed on the new system with 5S.

    Exciting stuff!
    Does she make it on a boat tomorrow? Won't be long now.
    So, got everything all lines up? Everybody who ordered a ss motor will get one? All motor mounts ready to go? Got the boxes, hardware packaged, all that fun stuff?
    Chris, if you thought you were busy before, my friend, just wait.

    Good idea letting the Germans handle the shipping. Prevents U-boat attacks. Would hate to loose that container!

    What kind of GOOP was used for the spares or can you recommend an alternative for it as it is not common in the EU (NL).
