That lipo pack is heavy, the ESC and motor are of fairly low quality and can be had for much less.

RE: learning 3d, what happens upon flameout?

I had a PRIEST intentionally attempt to fly through my plane whilst I was hovering. He missed, because he just could'nt fly that well....and his plane was 4 times as large as mine.

RE: Sorry folks.. bad day.

RE: Fuel vs. Electric: A Pro's & Con's List

Electric planes are absolutely great! I fly one almost daily. They can be flown anywhere, you don't need a runway for the small ones and you can generally count on a 2+:1 power to weight ratio.

RE: new to 4-strokes

It really depends on what you want to do. That .56 is a small engine with small power. If you want to fly calm circles and do mild aerobatics, it's just fine.

Don't stress too much about it. Follow the break-in instructions and later you can experiment with props for your type of flying.

RE: Servo Replacement??????????

Ken,

I resd this differently than you did. Seems to me he has 1/16" of play at the end of the servo arm. This means to me that he has slop in the servo gear train.

RE: Don't understand

Funny,

Even the smallest servo and RX combo will never last 12-13 flights reliably with a 600-700 MAH pack. That is, unless the flights are very short and unventful.
