They were never put on. I got this ARF version direct from Banana Hobby, even drove there to pick it up. The decals were on a separate sheet in the box. Don't know why, but actually I think I like it better this way.

That motor would be great with a 4 or 5 s lipo as you wont be able to use much more then a 9 in prop.
Myself I look at thrust numbers and that motor is 1/2 the kv of the stock motor plus i'm sure it weighs much more.

If I had the SSS I would go with a 4s bat and ubec and prop it to around 500 watts to start out with.

The airfram is very draggy so you need thrust.

It is still a 650kv motor stock is 1250 even with a 3 blade prop you would still need a 4-6s lipo.
Like i said I would use stock motor and figure it for 500w and go from there.

The real question is what do you want out of the SSS?

Thanks Don.
I think they are trying to hard to make it somthing its not designed to do be a f18.

100 watts per lb would be double the stock stup.

Please either change the esc or use a ubec but even if you stick with the stock setup I would recommend using a ubec either way $20 investment is well worth it

What would you think of the APC 8x6E on the stock setup?

Sound like a plan?
So you want to populate your empty threads with all of the good stuff and have Doubletap link to them, making you the SSS Guru? Sounds like a great plan.

I want it for just what its made for,floating around smooth as glass I have no plans on using the motor was just curious about the 1000 watt if it was more or less powerful than stock. The SSS fly's just fine as is,all i have done is bigger esc and new control rods ..
