I'm running a Torque 4016/500 and Airboss 80 ESC in mine. Salvaged from an EF 60" Extra. It's a nice flyer. I was disappointed that it didn't come with CF main landing gear.

I ordered the red one from general hobbies and received the yellow one even after calling and confirming I wanted the red one!------ even though they admitted to the mistake I had to pay shipping on return! They SUCK! Just received the red one from Skyward hobbies and the fuselage was severly compromised-------------but they are going to send me a new fuselage! Dealing USA over asians is a no brainer for me even in our own country the nipps will try to screw you---------beware! The plane is extremely light weight---no room for bad landings or any other mishap but I bet she flys great. What cell battery are you using? Im thinking of using a power 52 on 6 cells with a 100 amp esc. I know I could get away with less power but am more comfortable knowing its there when I need it and for hovers. Are you using the side force generators and do you think they are a plus or?

I have the red one. Paying for shipping when it was their mistake is a hard pill to swallow. I'm using 6s packs that range from 2200 mAh up to 5000. the 5k's are a bit heavy, but the plane doesn't suffer from the extra weight. I also double up 3s packs. I used the SFG's once...they helped in knife edge, but slowed the roll rate too much for my preference. It's a nice flyer. Tumbles great. The lack of availability of spare parts is a bummer.

Are you using a wood prop? I use them on a 65" p51 and an 80" cub (all electric) but on my 3d plane wich is a 40" bipe I use an apc. Plastic is fine with me --- if you balance them. The wood looks nicer but breaks on nose overs. Less flex just sounds right to me. Also are you using super fast servos? I plan to use the hitec 24 dollar ones they recomend with one for the elevator. Im new to the pull pull rudder also but havent heard anything bad. Have you been flying for a long time, Ive been at it for about 5 years and this will be my first true 3d plane.

I've been flying for two years...I've been using Falcon or Xoar wood props. APC's are fine. I agree that the APC's survive ground strikes much better. I have Hitec 7245's running on a 2s 500mAh pack. they're pretty fast. Pull pull works fine. I've never had a problem with it. I had to tighten the cables, they tend to stretch after a while. You won't believe the response when on high rates. I would strongly recommend Hitec 5245mg servos. they're around $40 per servo, but with the high deflection of the control surfaces, the extra torque will prevent blow back on high speed/high G maneuvers.
