RE: Brio - Glow to Electric

Since battery weight can vary drasticly from one manufacture to the next I thought a tray that could slide

RE: Brio - Glow to Electric

RE: Brio - Glow to Electric

3 blade prop for Electric ?

Searching the forum for prop info on the Haker A60 I see 20.5" x 14" two blade

RE: LiPo sources

I ended up ordering a couple sets of 25c NanoTech. They had them in the USA

Not my first choice but hopefully they will work out.
