Double post. Something wrong with the network.

I assume a lower kv motor (420-480kv) on 6s-3000 might work too. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I also have a Venom V50-410 kv (305g) purchased long time ago. A bit lighter than the Hacker A40-12L (345g). Pulling around 55A on 6s. That's about 1200w.

A40-14S/530kv might be another good choice. It's weight is 9.3 oz. compared to the recommended Torque 4016/500kv at 9.8 oz.

Then what size of prop on 6s ? Thought about going 6s on the 57" SC with that motor, but the kv seems to be a bit high.

What do you guys think of the Motrofly 3625-800 on 4S for the Edge? Seems to be a very popular setup for the 3DHS 57" Extra. Looks like guys are getting 1150 watts pretty easy.

There will be no glow conversion kit for this model. I didn't want to compromise the lightweight construction in order to make the airframe capable of handling a glow engine.
It can be done but would require some work on the part of the buyer.

4S set-ups should work fine. Just understand that with 4S you are going to probably be pulling quite a bit more Amps and the size battery you might need to use to get acceptable flight times may negate any weight savings.

The 6S set-up I have been running uses a 15x6 XOAR and 3000 and 3300 mah packs. I get 6 minute flights with this set-up pulling 53 Amps. Most 4S set-ups are going to pull in excess of 70 Amps so I'd expect flight times with 3000-3300 4S set-ups to be considerably less. This of course depends on throttle usage, wind, batteries and other factors.

I prefer 2 x 3s-3000 to lower the amp draw and good flight time.

Also have several 4s-2200 nano tech 25c that I use on the Slick 51". I could add 2s-2200 nano tech to make 6s-2200. Very light but quite short flight time.

That 6s setup is what I will use for Slick 59" / SC 57". Rimfire .55 (480 kv) with Xoar 15x7

extreme flight convert

Well I did it.. It wasn't intentional, but I sold every balsa plane I owen, except my EF 48" Edge, and 48" MXS.. Now I have my sights set on this beautiful Bird. I didn't plan it, but I'm hooked on EF. I really want a blue, and yellow 58" extra if they come back in stock?

Chris, Does it look like you'll be getting any Blue/yellow 58" Extra's, any time soon?
