I've got a 6s 5000mAh and a 100A ESC on the way for my T60. I need to finish covering the fuse and mount some gear. I'm hoping I will have enough power. The motor I have is an EMP 5065-380kv. Any prop suggestions from the leccy gurus?

Chris, you know I'd help if I could!!

Mike, your buddy Gino is cool, you should ask him to drop by the thread sometime. I'm sure he'd fit right in!

Snowman, the price is whatever someone is willing to pay. They could always say no!

I think I will keep this one a little longer.
I have had 3 FireFly's <one was a mini> and they are fun. They were always my "Windy Day" foamie. I gots to build me one again. Frisbee launch always

I never apologize for charging what I do. I was completely up front with this guy........if he would have cleaned up the webs he'd have saved himself $100.......he must have had the money......or maybe he's deathly afraid of spiders and their webs........I'm not.

Hey Waldo........did you hear that the Tigers swept the series? That's gotta hurt for those Yankees fans.........now we get to watch the Louisiana Cardinals take on the Tigers!

David22......it sounds like you oppose my bidding practices? I suppose if what you say comes to pass.......then my wife can feel free to raise her prices??? And continuing with that thought............if she raises her prices......then I'll have to pass on the rising cost of doing business to the customers...

David22......my business acumen has nearly led me down the path to ruination on more than one occasion. You'd have better luck looking for the pot-o-gold at the end of the rainbow. I'll work till I die.......I guess that's not such a bad thing.

Work till ya die is a good thing


Imagine not likening your job and income

Or imagine likening your job and income and then not working.



It would be like saying , I take away all your rc stuff now and you have to find new hobby



Seen guys die right after they retire

Seen guys live forever working not needing a cent but rather enjoy working as a hobby

Twist 40 v1 with 46 ax is still my favorite plane



Got to keep on topic

I'm on the road today and tomorrow looking under rocks for accounting jobs. Met with a firm today. They were super nice. They bought our lunch and spent two hours with us. I have just been super impressed with the people I have met in this profession. They are so nice and make you feel good and comfortable. I just need one to give me a job now haha.

Just as the sun was sinking to the horizon I showed up at an rc club about a mile away from my brother's house. They were putting on a show for boy scouts. I tossed my edge up and joined the show for two flights. Nice people and they loved a taste of low and slow 3d huckin . The kids were all yelling haha. I think I'm going to try and go out there again in the morning before my 10:30 appointment.

Those new servos I mentioned a while back are out. Arron had a set to test in his 104 and I was amazed, they made no noise at all, even under a load. For a digital servo, that was really different

I sure did. The fact that the manager allowed it was an opportunity not to be missed. This client has a heck of an operation. To allow some dork like me to fly a plane in there was well above par. We got a good laugh out of it It was waay too tight for the Beast 3D. The regular beast would have owned it. If you are ever in KC they are worth a visit. Especially since we know they let a little micro own the court for a couple minutes.
