BradT, sounds like the same exact specs as this plane as of now. I just finished instaling a Monster power 160 and CC 80 amp speed control. I plan on using 2 each 5000mA 5 cells in series and an 18-8 prop to start. I will need some bigger connectors to solder on the ESC, I dont have any large enough for the size of the wire. I have a bunch of other odds and ends to do before I can have it ready to fly. I also have to wait till HK has more 5000mA batteries in the USA warehouse. I will post the results as I go.
