A lot of fellows here upgrade their e.s.c, motor and servos, but if ya ask me,just go with 20% over the supplied e.s.cs requirements.Iam not saying don't do the other stuff,i'm just saying, that was fine for me.

I flew mine only 5 times and it's still 100% stock. But it's was in cold weather 5-8 degrees celcius.

In the spring, I will have to watch my ESC for over heating.

Note: I have the first generation of th HK ESC.

Hello everybody,
I'd like to buy this plane, but I also need to choose the receiver and the batteries.
I've a Spektrum DX6i transmitter, without any receiver: which is the best receiver for my transmitter, to mount on this plane (quality/price rapport)?
Which is the better battery to choose?
Thanks everybody!

OrangeRx R610 is $6, add a OrangeRx R100 Satellite Receiver for a little extra peace of mind. A 3s 1800 to 2200 for around $10 w/ buddy code. You shouldn't need a high c rating for this and their is some room to shift battery position, I use the 2200 25c.

Thanks a lot, mstopps!
The R100 is in backorder on Hobbyking, I'll wait.
Since I've also to order the model, do You have any suggestion about some spare parts / accessories that is good to have with this plane?
I know nothing about planes, I come from small rc helicopters.

I've also found a Spektrum AR6210 receiver for a cheap price, but what does it mean "no bind plug"?
It means that there's only the receiver without the satellite?
Or something else?
Thanks everybody!

I flew the Hobby King "Walrus" E glider this morning on a 5 minute test flight, -10C, a bit cool on the fingers even with thin cotton gloves on! A bit tail heavy, big pitch up on 1/2 flap, I will have to add some nose weight as the 1500 mah battery is full forward. HK glider, HK lipo, HK orange receiver, long live the King!

Set a flap/ele mix of 6 and get a couple of 2200 batts.
You'll be glad you did.

Regular CA and I'll hit it with some accelerator just so I don't have to hold things in place while it dries good.

Do not use foam safe. Use regular ca.

I don't remember if the Walrus came with any glue.
Get some debonder too, always nice to have around for cleanup.

Thanks, Iflyrcs.
In the first glue it' written "not foam safe", is it OK anyway?
Have I to be careful in some way?
About sat RX, I've already bought it in this morning, immediately when I've received HK's message "on stock"!
