Ordered a red one. Also ordered a Motrolfly 3625-800. Should be fun!

Reaper?

Are they still in business? Website closed.

Wish I waited for the 59" because I cannot stand the canopy/hatch in the 51".

Any pics of canopy/hatch on 59?

Thats the same setup I was thinking. I have 4000mah 4s 25C lipos that I use for my 71. I also have 4 hs225mgs already but really want digital servos to use the HS mode my futaba system offers

Got the same lipos and servos, will probably switch to digi's down the road, but couldn't pass up the deal on the 225's the other day...Still time though, I am a big JR fan, so I may just keep my eyes peeled.....I like the 9650's too....

Shouldnt be. The BEC in the ice should handle 4 mini servos without issues

I would think you would be fine.....I just went with the 100 because it's basically the same weight and only a couple bucks more...

True that, I probably will just buy the 100 for the headroom.

Any advice on a powerful motor for 4S -- I am in Denver and need to overpower slightly

Motrolfly 3625-800KV is what I am going with....the Scorpion 4020 would be great too albeit a little heavier...

I'm going with the GR45 as well. It's a rocket with an APC 14x7 and 4s 3700 in my 57" Extra SC. Easily my highest power to weight aircraft.....or at least it feels that way. The SC balances fine. This one is lighter, and has the cowling hatch for even easier battery access. I don't anticipate there being much of a problem.

I had a Scorpion 3026-710 in my 59, which is GR45 territory... neutral was as good as I could get the CofG with simply moving the pack forward, and that's with 4S 4000. With the larger Motrolfly I have the balance where I like it and the pack is still sitting forward.
