Default Can any body help please

Easy Star” with brushed motor setup got one for a steal and would like to know what battery it will take can I put a 20c 11.1 lipo in it or does it only run on NiCad? Or please link me to the forum about the plane and what you can do to it please and thank you.

According to its writeup on parkflyers.com it comes with a 6 cell 1100mah NiMH patter but reviews I have seen say it's heavy and underpowered. I think if you replace the NiMH batts with a 2 cell 900-1200 mah Li-Po you will some of the weight and power problems and have a nice flyer. D.H.

Thanks I went with the 2s 25c 900mah lipo and she us ready to go. I like the foamies to take to the park and relax. I can just throw them in the car and go. In stead of loading all the big planes and all the stuff that goes with them. Thanks I post how she fly's.

It is okay but you have to add extra foam to the rudder it is not big enough. And the stock brushed motor is way under powered. When you do get her up in the air great little plane for riding thermals and flying around.

If you find the rudder unresponsive, move the CG back.
