hey thanks Oly
I guess I just need to land somewhere with my motor/prop/batt setup and then go from there
I have the 2856 2300kv motor so I will see if it will work. now I have the 30mm apc folding prop and it looks like I can get 7x4 blades for it, would that be ok or do I need a completely diff folding prop unit.

arctery
is that 6x5.5 a folder?
having trouble finding folding prop setups and trying to figure out what I should start with

any guidance is most appreciated

Jc: no. It's a fixed prop. Ran it with my 2350kv Mega 16/25/2CE on a 4S1800 lipo.
Decent speed

Was going to change out motor and batts and try the new mega today.got lazy and decided to do it another time.Nice warm day and bright sun.Plane is very fast on 2s but,very thin profile.when I start to get a little wobbly I usually cut throttle and climb.Did that and plane went straight into sun and dissapered.hollard at flight line I lost it,killed throttle,and about 3 secs later heard a loud boom way out past the field,More like a small explosionNever found anything and from the sound probably not much left.Think I'll get that jolt and make sure it's not white

Anyone know where I can source a new battery hatch? Mine went down due to a stripped servo and it disappeared
