E-flite 400

Get a Big Battery for that 400. I can't even run a direct drive 3x3 prop on mine without it getting blistering hot and it sucks the juice right out of my 3 cell 2100. I will say, that with a 3x3, the 400 4200kv puts out some major thrust at very high rpm's, but it gets so warm, that I have put a Mega 16/15/3 in it's place with a 4.75 x 4.75 and it's way better. Not to say the 400 is'nt good. I just think I'll put a gear on mine and use it in a gearbox from now on so it does'nt have to draw as many amps.

Edit: By the way - Super cool plane. Looks like a fairly easy and fun build for what you get as the end result.
