It's torture actually. I got it right before I left on vacation so I had no time to build it. I still need to get the motor, esc and servos though...

those sound like the exact numbers people are getting with the 4315 714. I've got a new one in the box ready to mount up to the 57sc. Cannot wait to try this puppy out with the Gens 4s 4000.

Rob at ADC hobby just informed me that the 5245 servos are on their way and i'm picking up an Ice 100 Lite on Saturday.

Quick question, Should I go with a Castle Ice 100 lite or Ice 100 with the heatsink? same price just 2.9oz vs 4.3 oz.

Basically is there enough airflow up front to keep the lite cool.

i know people are using both with no problems. Since i'm going with a heavier motor, i opted for the lite.

In this size I felt better with a heat sink. Though I do tend to push my equipment every now and then

You won't have any trouble with the lite version if you're only pulling around 80 amps. The regular heatsink version will serve you better if you decide to get a 70" plane in the future. The heatsink version is also good to 8s. The lite is only good to 6s.

i actually take the less is more approach and like it without a ton of bling. I normally do one to two stickers/decals at most.
