Which battery for Trex 550E Pro DFC... beginner pilot.

My uncle just bought a Trex 550E Pro DFC. It has a 730MX 850 KV motor and a 1:7 gear ratio. What kind of battery should he get for it? He's new to flying and is still in the hovering stage with a...

RE: Trusty old Futaba 9ZHP's LCD screen is a bit dark.

It's not too dark to read yet, but it's probably slowly getting worse. I don't think it's worth fixing for $240. I took the radio apart yesterday because I heard a rattling inside. It was a loose...

Trusty old Futaba 9ZHP's LCD screen is a bit dark.

I've been using this 2nd hand (non WCII) Futaba 9ZHP for something like 11 years now. I "converted" it to 2.4 GHz about 4 years ago. I've noticed since last year that the LCD screen is darker than I...

RE: Looking for light, 40ish sized plane similar to a Sig Somethin' Extra for electric.

I appreciate all the suggestions, this is a great thread. I am looking for something more sporty with a very thick fully symmetrical wing, but I have to admit that the escapade 40 does interest me. A...

RE: 40 sized phoenix models sukhoi sensitive elevator at low speed.

The CG is at 4.5 inches or about 114 mm. It can definitely use a bit more weight towards the back. The spins aren't flat and I need quite a bit of down elevator while inverted. Elevator trim stays...

RE: 40 sized phoenix models sukhoi sensitive elevator at low speed.

Well, the flat spins aren't very flat, and it takes more elevator than I think it should while inverted. Elevator authority is just fine at low speeds, the problem is the elevator seems to get more...

LiFe = A123? What charger should I use?

I'm looking to get into 40ish sized electric aircraft by this coming spring/summer. A few years ago I had a 50 sized electric heli I powered with a Dewalt A123 10S2P and a 14S1P pack. I used a bench...

40 sized phoenix models sukhoi sensitive elevator at low speed.

I built this plane a bit heavy. It has an old OS surpass 70 in the nose, so I put the elevator and rudder servos in the tail to compensate. I don't have a scale, but it certainly feels heavy for a...

Looking for light, 40ish sized plane similar to a Sig Somethin' Extra for electric.

Anyone have any good suggestions? I'm looking for a light plane, preferably an ARF, but a kit will do, for electric flight. I'd like something of about the size of a 40. 50 - 60 inch wingspan type...

Trex 600 motor

Is it possible to find a motor that will run at 36 volts for the T-rex 600? I know the Raptor e 620 says you can run a 6s - 10s battery. I would like to put a 10s1p M1 / A123 pack into a...

LiPoDapter (Dapter) for A123s

It seems to me the Dapter does the brainy part of the charging. If I have a walmart charger set to charge at 22v and 8 amps will the Dapter stop the charging process once a 6S1P A123 is charged? Is...

Hurricane 550.

How does this compare to the raptor 50 or T-Rex 550? I like the reduced cost of using the smaller lipos. I'm still trying to figure out about A123 li-ions though.

RE: XtremeLink™ - 2.4GHz for Futaba, JR, and Hitec radios

I've been keeping track of the thread at RCG. Pretty much just a couple of sharks attacking XPS in a large ocean of user questions with poor Jim of XPS trying to hold his own.

RE: Raptor 50, 60, or electric?

Ouch I didn;t realize that they could only fly for 6 minutes. 12 minutes is minimum for me... I guess it's back to gas. I guess the best engine out for a Raptro 50 is the OS 50 hyper?
