Same here, will be putting my old 42" slick guts in it, which are 103g omega, 4x hitec 65mg's, and hacker x-40. I would like to put a ice 50 in it but don't know yet.

Don't sell the gear, you sell it you know you probably won't get a 40" after that. So keep the gear and then for 100$ or less you will have another sweet plane and it's more crash proof than a balsa. I think this plane will be the new buck huck or maybe even 90$.

Oh well then your good to go. But I will be putting a 103g on this plane, so you should sell the 41" edge gear, keep the 42" slick gear.

Yeah, I want to do that, but no one wants to buy it.... I'm trying to sell my DX6i, 41" Edge electronics, and my 42" Slick since I bought a 51". This thread is already off topic because of us bro!

I have the same problem too. 103g or 72g. Will the 103g be too heavy with an 1800mah battery?
