I've been getting Vox wood props from Precision Aerobatics and Xoar props from RCDude. They work great on my larger electrics.

Is it pretty easy to fit a 6s5000 in the hatch? I was looking at a Pulse XT60 and from what I've read on other forums it's a pain to get that large of a battery in there.

Last year I converted a Performance Aircraft Unlimited Cap Maniac to electric. It's somewhat heavy at 8.5lbs for a 60" plane but it flies great on 6S, 17x8 APC prop and a Turnigy 50-65 380kv. At...

Hey Henry- can you post a photo on how you set up the flaps? I want to see how you linked the flap servo arm to the torque rods. I left the rods on mine when I mounted the servos to the wings.

I fly my Wing Dragons/ Begin Air planes on a regular basis. Both of mine have been modified with brushless motors and reinforced wings. They're the only planes I'll fly when the wind is over 15mph.

I fly my MUS with either a 3S1500 or 3S1750. The 2200 is too heavy for it. I personally think the AR6200 is overkill for it. I use the smaller AR6110. I also have a HeadsUpRC 450 Sport brushless...

I still fly my Wing Dragon (first plane) from time to time. Not all the original pieces are there (new fuse) but it's still fun to mash up the skies with it.

Whoops- I just noticed that 2DogRC has two different types of foam planes. I have the Top Gun Foam combat plane, not the Budget EPP. Didn't pay attention to the title too well.
