Windy but fun

I made a short video of my XL, it was a bit windy but the XL handles the wind quite well. I have also been using it as a trainer to teach a friend to fly.
I am using a 49g 1200kv KD A22-10S motor from hobbyking, with a 9X5DD prop, and a 800mah 3s battery.
Thanks Greg and Mike for all you help and a GREAT plane.

Very nice video aircontrol. Looks to be handling the wind very well. I'm very happy with how mine flies.

Looking to pick up an XL for X-Mas and have a few quick questions.

I see a bunch of guys recommending the Gens Ace 3S 800mAh 25C battery. All I can find are 20C at HobbyPartz: http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-20c-800-3s1p.html

Is this the correct battery?

I'm planning on going with the recommended Suppo motor and early reports seem to favor the APC 10 x 3.8 SF prop. Doesn't look like I can order them with the kit so I guess a Tower order will have to be made:

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGPD0&P=7

Going to go with the unpainted version to save $20.00 and plan on doing a quick rattle can job on it. Any advice on what paint is safe? I've heard good things about Krylon.

She is going to be my first trip to 3D land so she doesn't need to be pretty, just needs some color for orientation.

Those are the batteries I have. They are working great. They also have 3s 1000 25c batteries that will work well also. So far I really like their batteries.

Hi Reaper802,

Greg at wmparkflyers.com sells the Rhino 3s/750 20c packs for the McFoamy XL and I have been using them for a few years now and have been very happy with them.

I am currently running the GWS 9x5 DD prop on my XL. This prop will work very well and you can also get that from Greg. I like the GWS prop because it is a little bit flexible so it will take some abuse. The APC 10x3.8SF prop will work well also but be sure to order a few as they will crack and break even using a prop saver. If you do go with the GWS 9x5DD prop be sure to use two prop bands to hold it on the prop saver. It still allows for flexibility needed with impacts and you won't loose as much power. I have been very impressed with the performance of the 9x5DD and how durable it is, in fact I don't use a prop saver and just run the regular prop adapter.

EPP will accept most any paint and will resist melting with most solvents. On all my previous builds I have used Krylon "Short Cuts" craft paint which is available at most Michaels craft stores.
