@mgbolts.....Let me know how the rudders turn out - and what servos you are going to use.
Things I learnt:
1) there is a power delay between throttle (on TX) and motor winding up - don't launch (hand throw) till you feel the plane pulling out of your hand - DUH.
2) Standard batteries (like my 20C) can't deliver ampage !!! My DX8 telemetry warning goes off - voltage too low every time I try above 1/2 throttle for more that 5 seconds. Gotta get some nano-tech 65C or something.
I'm using a Turnigy 2836 -2350kv on with a 6x4 prop.
Hey, I'm running the same setup with 4s 2200 45-90c and this thing hauls a$$! 1050 watts at 60amp. It's double the rating of the motor but it only comes down warm and so far so good after 50+ flights.
Rudders are a good addition. They aren't that effective with yaw control but they do allow for some crazy flat spins and are awesome as speed brakes to slow this beast down.
