I have ordered from them, but it took 5 weeks to get my retracts. It's just a mom and pop operation, and they custom make them when you order them. It is worth the wait though, nice quality products.

RE: Large electric warbirds 60 size plus,,,lets see em

Here's my H-9 P-47, powered by a Turnigy 50-65B-350 on 6S spinning a 16X12E prop. It runs right about 1150 Watts, and I get a 9 min flight on a 5000ma pack.

RE: Questions.

Nick, the ideal storage charge for LiPos is about 3.7-3.8V per cell. It's not really a good idea to run the packs until the LVC if you want them to last. I have found that most ESC LVC settings are...
