I recently ordered some F20-4 Econojets for my Initiator, but got F20-7 instead. Has anyone flown an Initiator on this motor?
Is it a good/bad idea.
I'm thinking that delay might be too long.

(holds breath, heart stops beating) yep, it's too long.

(exhales, heart starts again) but it DID eject, just in time.

Thanks. I guess I'll have to build something else to use them in.
Oh darn. :)
I needed an excuse to build a 29mm Executioner anyway.
It should be light enough to take a long delay.

Thanks again,

Tim

I have found AT's motor recommendations to be fairly accurate -- don't deviate!

Darn. Guess I can't throw an E30-7 in, it goes pretty low anyway on that motor.

I don't know, but mine flew great yesterday on a G80-10, even though aerotech recomends a G80-7.
it did take a half hour to find. but it was fun!!

The seven second delay would be perfect for a Mustang, though!!!

I've said it before, I'll say it again...F40-7 RMS is perfect for the Initiator...about 1500 feet or so - highly recoverable and a gorgeous flight...
