Not exactly sure what motor it has but esc is a H-70A ESC and a 1206E prop, it looks like whoever owned before me was using a single 6S battery as indicated in the battery tray with felt marker. After reading here I think I might opt to go the 2x3S set up but will see what I find battery wise.

Thanks!

Dang new planes always need a little tinkering, despite cg being off it seems to fly alright and the best thing of all it came back in one piece

Hi.

I just got this plane from E-Store Rotterdam

I have read through the thread but i can't find out what size and type spinner to use on this plane. The plan is to use a APC 12x6E Pusher 2 blade prop. or 12x6E/12x8E 3 blade prop.

I know it's an old thread, but i hope someone can help...

The only mention I read about was going without a spinner. That is my plan for now.

When it's all together and flying, I'll decide if this model is worthy of a spinner and lighting and other details. I'm going with a Master Airscrew 12x6x3.

If it flies no better than the smaller NFD A288, mine will never get a spinner. Or lighting. Unless the new owner puts one on.
