Just finished setting up my latest plane, Hyperion Helios 63e. 55" WS pattern plane.

This one was purchased used for $380 shipped. The only downside was a section of the top left wing which has some trim that has been removed. It looks a little ugly - I think I will place some replacement trim covering over the spot.

It came built with:
4x HS-225MG servos
Hyperion Z4020B-14 Outrunner brushless motor
Hyperion Titan 80 amp PSB ESC

For power I'm using my Rhino 4S 3700 mAH packs.

The first prop I'm trying is a 15x8 APCe. Pulls ~45A, 700 watts static. I also have a 16x10 APCe which pulls 60A if the 15 is too tame.

AUW is 4lb 10oz - so I'll start out with 150 w/lb.
