Question F5B - Wilco Hotliner setup


I'm flying a topmodel cz Wilco for some monthes, you have it in the USA (http://www.nesail.com/detail.php?productID=4247)

I'm using at this time a "cheap" (sorry ) outrunner direct drive combo that's pulling +600W (a pita to make it fit in the fuse)

ESC : TURNIGY Plush 80A w/ UBEC Speed Controller
Motor : TR 35-48-B 900kv Brushless Outrunner
Lipo : Fusion Pack 4s 2200mah 14.8volt 25C (max 5/10 sec : 50C) 222gram
Propeller : 12x6.5

=> Overall is 1200kg

Now that I'm quite confident with the bird.... I want to get a decent top notch setup for it (the wires are really close to the outrunner spinner and it's a pain to fit this light lipo battery : 222g in the deep nose)

What would you recommend as a setup (I want something that worth)

ESC / Motor / Battery / Propeller ?

Thanks for your feedback; Much appreciated.

How do you like you're Wilco? I've been looking at this model seriously as my come-back into RC, but I don't want to get in too far over my head. Does it feel pretty stable or squirrly?

What did you end up going with for your motor/esc/battery setup?

Great looking bird.

this is a great bird for 220 euros. You can also get the FVK kamelot for 320€ or 340 with flaps.


is your friend for the wilco thread.
