They are, but they're even more awesome if they're set up properly.

totally bummed out, charging batteries this morning getting ready for a day of flying. for some strange reason i decide to pull the cowl off and check the screws holding the x mount to the motor. and i notice that i i have thrown a magnet on my beautiful motor.
last week i watched my smoke system go up in smoke. now this. at least all the manufacturers that i deal with have awesome customer support.

So I'm getting tired of batterys. To convert electric to battery...running an ar6200, becpro, should just need a dle30, tank, dot, etc. then an a123 or simular for the ignition and rx? Maybe a life to run the whole thing? Gens-ace is driving me this way.

Can you run a dle30 straight from a life or is a a123 better? Size?

Thanks,
Rob

Since you already have the bec pro i would use 2s lipo. I would also get the tech aero ibec http://www.tech-aero.net/.

yeah I looked at those,maybe more than I want to spend. More than a dle55 I just bought for the 87. da60 more than double but after flying Zed's 87 with a 55 it had plenty of power!

But ok another question, most run a 16oz tank in a 50cc, but my 72 came with a 16oz tank. Do yall run a 16 un a 30 and 50cc plane?

8-12 oz is all that is needed for 30cc.
