Default *Redwing RC 50cc Slick 540*

I have 3 flights on my Redwing RC 50cc Slick 540 running the E-flite Power 360. I'm using the Castle Creations 160 HV/fan ESC and spinning a Xoar 24X10 (gas) beachwood prop. Power to the motor is coming via 2 Glacier 5000mAh 6s 45c battery's in series. I'd say the plane is coming in somewhere around 17 lbs. I'm getting a good 5 I/2 min. flight time. Now I'm not a big 3D flyer but more of a IMAC flyer so the flight time may be more for 3D. With this setup the motor and battery's are just warm after a 5 1/2 min. flight. I can't get to the ESC but I'd say it's just warm as well. With this setup it's maxing out at over 5700 watts and max amps are at 121. This motor does weigh a little more than some others but it's working out great for me and what a money saver at over $300.00 over some of the other so called high end motors.
