Haven't seen that one in a while, If you use the brushed motors you'll only need one ESC ,,My brushed set-ups all worked Great! with Brushless you'll need two, use at least a 9 gram servo on the ailerons 5 or 9 gram on the Rudder and elevator, Jeff over at Heads-Up RC has good advise on set-ups and is the go-to guy for novices who need service and parts, Hobby-King has small brushless combos for less than 20$ a piece,I'm not a hack for Heads-up and all will say what a great place it is and how helpful they can be, The E-Starter is a great plane and love mine but the twin should be good as well, counter rotating props is good but not a must ( I've done them both ways), Twins are a hoot and I hope you have a ball!!!luv mine! bubsteve

Threads like that can only get heated, and it is not necessary to bring it into a public forum.
Best if he didn't I am sure it will get worked out in the end.

Love Twins, especially, civilian twins. In the RC World, there's not that much to choose from in the $130- $200 ARF EPP foam category. I have the Durafly DH-88 Comet and just bought the Dynam Cessna 310 from Grayson. The C421 , YS-11 and B60 (Duke) are out there but after those, there's a big leap.

Ya wind has been bad lately hope it settles down soon. I would like to get some flying in, but shotgun season started and I'll be out chasing deer down by the club.

They say it fly's good with the stock setup did it come with it?
Or use a emax CF2805 with a 5 inch prop 2 cell battery 1800 mah battery,
2 -18 amp ESC.

Be able to fly it at half throttle no problem probably less than that.

1st time I have ever heard a neg comment about HURC, I'm sure it'll get cleared up.

Ask me why your DX5e is doomed... and how to fix it.
