I have been thinking about picking one of these. I too like to have something a little different from the crowd. I will be watching your progress. Any idea on a motor yet?
Yes, Newjak, I was just about to get to the electronics and thanks for your interest. I did contact the "NITRO GUYS" (Tommy and Shawn) to get their recommendations and was pleased to find quite a selection of accessory items on their web site (www.nitroplanes.com
). I did follow their suggestions and used the following Nitro items;
LI-PO - 3e / 15C /3S1P / 1800mAh
BRUSHLESS OUTRUNNER - A20-22L / 200w / 924 Kv / operating range 6-14A with burst to 17A
TOWER PRO ESC - 25A
SERVOS - 4ea. nitro 9G RC Micro
In addition, I choose to use Castle Creations Berg 7p full range receiver as I have had excellent results and reliability from these little "gems!"
For switches, servo and "Y" extensions MPI has an extensive array of items. Their #1570 universal controller switch has solved many issues for
me and is so easy to install.
