Default How about a parts list?

I've just ordered a Superxtra. I have a Futaba 7C with a R617FS receiver and nothing else.

What else do Ineed to complete the kit?

sounds simple enough. I've never had an electric plane before. For example I don't know anything about selecting batteries, the ESC or a charger. I found a sticky thread in general electrics that I was reading. I hope that will educate me enough.

BTW, I was doing some reading after I ordered this.I realized the 3Dfoamy planes came out a few years ago, and I'm seeing less references recently. How's business? How do you think these planes compare/compete with other products on the market today?

I don't advertise, so they just sell themselves. Compared to others, they are still light for their size, and fly like a 43% instead of a heavy foamy.

I forgot, you will need a battery, 3s, 1200mah or smaller.

I've been looking into choosing an ESC. They range in cost from under $10 to over $40. Most of these ESCs have a linear BEC with a spec just generally 5v/2A. Many have comments in the manual to only run 3 servos. I'm kind of at a loss for which to pick. Am I going to have a problem with these linear internal BEC and four hi-tec 55 servos? If so, are there ESCs that have switching BECs? Should I get a separate BEC?

Keep it simple.

You will need 4 servos. Don't need any fancy BEC's.
