    Art Applewhite 38mm Stealth question

    I got a Art Applewhite 38mm Stealth from my Secret Santa this year. I'm almost done building it, and I have a quick question:
    How high would the Stealth go on a AT F20W? It's the biggest MPR motor I have right now, and I'm looking to possibly burn it in the Stealth.



    Thanks,

    Andrew:

    not very high, I'd be surprised by 500. i've stuffed the CTI I55 mellow into mine, as well as the CTI I180

    I just want to know if it'll break 200 ft?

    maybe. Never flew it on one. Plus I only use the "calibrated eye" method of altitude determination on my stealths.

    I would not recommend it (not enough power). However it would work for the priority stealth (which is free).

    Don't tell the postal inspectors.

    In all seriousness though, I think I saw someone burn a baby M motor in one these things (regular size, not the priority) and it got barely any altitude.

    Art took a sabbatical before the holidays so the freebies might be all you can get right now.

    I wouldn't suggest flying the 38 on an F. I flew my 38 Stealth on a Loki H144 and probably didn't get much higher the 500'.

    Like other said, the priority stealth is perfect for that motor. Any cardboard box of that general size will do. I used a scrap box from work for mine.

    I'm not very smart, but I can lift heavy things...
