I am hoping that rvincent is over at the AZ Jet rally now with his T-45. I will be out there tomorrow with cameras in hand for pics & vids if he is flying it.

I am not partial to outrunners, there are the only one's I have experience with. I just started getting into EDF's this year. I do know that the Scorpions will run hotter and in some cases will melt the housing at the front of the motor! Others have put some insulating material between the motor to stop this. Old PCB seems to work.

I am leaning towards trying these retracts.

Either that or the E-Flite .15-.25's....


Also, I just realized last night that I never received the servo covers for the elevators. I did get some weird vacuum-formed piece of plastic that may have just been some scrap piece that accidently got packed instead of the correct items...

I'll see if Nitroplanes can send me some... I'm sure they've parted one out by now. If not, I'll figure something else out...perhaps some balsa & covering or something
