Hi Ezra And Welcome to Wattflyers, What Motor, ESC and Battery will you be using, and how many servos, will it be a 3 channel or 4 channel with ailerons, The reason I ask, is to make sure your BEC in your ESC will handle the electrical load, BEC = Battery Eliminator Circuit, ESC = Electronic Speed Control, if you are only using rudder, elevator & throttle, a 2 amp bec should be fine, if you are using ailerons 4th Channel, then it would be best to use a 3 AMP Bec in your ESC, the AMP rating is normally less than what is written on the ESC, so its best to use the highest bec rating as possible, and some times, it even better to use a UBEC, the newby is not normally aware of this, so I thought i would give you a little insite, as to prevent any Problems, Take care, Chellie
