Actually, I am flying these.....

http://www.valuehobby.com/product_de...20&item_id=104

The towerPro's were added after I had my order in I think. But those look like they should do the trick too, they seem to be a HS-65 clone,... just as strong, a little faster, but just a couple grams heavier.


compaired to my ESO8MA the TowerPro's are just 1.4 grams heavier, slightly faster, slightly stronger, and 2 dollars cheaper. Looks like a good buy to me.

Yea they showing those outa stock.

I got this motor here and esc. They should do the trick. Its not the recommended motor but its pretty close.

http://www.valuehobby.com/product_de...=1&item_id=183

The ESC is a 25amp hobbywing. I suppose ill order those TP MG servos if i go with this plane.

Truth is the price is real nice and i like Value hobby stuff. Its a battle between this and a Parkmaster 3D. The only reason id go with the Parkmaster is because of its Elapor construction. IMO its in the same class size and weight wise as this.

There are things i like about your planes though i like the sturdy looking landing gear and big battery sizes, and price for one Parkmaster i could have 2 of your planes. And plus i dont really want to be the foam flying noob guy forever.

So as you can see im in quit a pickle. God why is life so hard

25 amp ESC is most likely overkill,... but I don't now much about off brand ESC's,... I've had sickening good luck with the Castle Creations ESC's, even overamping the heck out of them with no issues,... so I'm sold.


I'd say a CC T-bird 18 should be more than enough for that motor.... but that's just me.



I really like the VH stuff as well, and Alex is killer for customer support

so I've started to waver a little on my motor selection and battery selection,..... I mean the price is just.... RIGHT!


As far as the airplane's are concerned,... Spaz is only paled by Q,.... but that's open for debate

same wing diff fuse and tail.. sabre harrier rolls easier, hover is easier.. but the cap is a better tumbler and the KE is more locked in at high alpha..

BTW these have thick carbon beams in the fuse making them much stronger than the typical profile plane or small full fuse (scale) plane.. at this size/weight a scale plane can't touch these for 3D ability.. just thought i'd add that
