Speaking of repairable, anyone have an extra Left Wing on Hand they might want to part with? That's all I need to build a new one....
If you can't find one on here, Horizon Hobby still carries them for $50, and free shipping!

Good deal! As I highly doubt any private seller would part with a brand new one cheaper with free shipping.

I just picked one of these from a friend at my club for an absolute steal. All E-Flite gear. Looking forward to flying it - it's my first non-foam EDF.

Just be thorough with everything so there is no mishap. Good luck on the project and maiden.

yep.....most def get rid of the deans because on high amp draw planes, the terminals will get so hot that the plastic starts to melt and it will loose connection.
its happened to me several times. i started using xt60 and xt90 or the ec5. ec5 is a very good plug, can handle alot of amps.

Agree with EC5 connectors instead. Tam from Tamjets also uses these. The connection spark, if it happens, stays in the insulated tips. EC5 are also much easier to plug in and pull apart in my hands. They don't wear out as easily for sure.

They can be purchased inexpensively from Hobby King in packs of 5.
