I've been flying my TM 400 for about 5 months now. I'm no acrobatic pilot, yet. I'm using the KDA 2020 from Hobby City with the programmable Tower Pro Mag 8 20Amp programmable ESC (I recommend the $4 programming box).
The packs are Loong Max 3s 1300s. And--I'm ashamed to admit it, I have flown the plane since the maiden on 3 of the Hobby city 9gr servos at $3.34 a piece. (I buy them by the 10 pack when they have them. I even buy the rebuild kits for a buck). The props are GWS DD 1060s.
I am thinking about trying the Turnigys mentioned by Tom Frank above as Hobby City goes out of stock on things often.
Will the 2000s fit in the battery compartment, if, of course, you are using the forward cockpit for the battery compartment?
