I am going to use the LG-15 also. Can you please share the setup numbers that you have found to work with the T45? Thanks!

Just start with the numbers set low for the gear doors, and then work your way up to what works best for your application. The voltages from the LG15 to the retracts and speeds should be good out of the box.

Thanks for your reply but isn't this a little risky? If the starting number is too low then the gear may not operate in flight. I was hoping to find someone who had already been down this trail and has the actual Xicoy settings.

I have watched a couple of videos where the owner did set it on the ground and it worked fine. In the air it failed, possibly because of wind resistance? I'm sure trial and error would sort it out but I would like to avoid a failure in the air on the maiden if someone else has already figured this out.

Default Edf version vs Turbine version

Can anybody articulate the differences between an EDF version and a Turbine version? In respect that Ive purchased an EDF version, but now wish to upgrade it.

cheers

Does anybody know who the manufacturer is for the retracts that come with the Aero Foam T45 and possibly what model number the retracts are? Or are they marked somehow so I can check them. I think they may be JP Hobby ER-120s but I am really not sure. Thanks for any info!!

The landing gear and controller with brake control are available on the Banana Hobby web site.

Thanks for the reply. Yes - I saw them under spare parts. What I am looking for is who actually makes these for Banana Hobby and what the OEMs part number is. Do you happen to know?

The retracts for the AFT-45 look exactly like JPs ER120s

I tried the 150 controller and the motor stall didn't create enough amps to turn off the motors so I went to the stock controller for the model and it works with 8.4v, didn't mess up the servos

Thanks for the reply. I am not familiar with a 150 controller? I am also confused how insignificant amps are the catalyst turn off a motor- normally excessive amps turn of a motor?
