they are super expensive... I think like 3.85 or so. You also will likely need to move down to a 8X3.8 prop



I basically had to go to 3s. 2S couldn't hover my plane anymore cause it was getting so heavy from all the repairs.

Not exactly.... I destroyed my EPP Mustang within a few months. No skills were involved.
It met a fate similar to one of aronPH's planes....

Lol..... I dont understand why hobbyzone doesn't make an EPP plane with a pusher pod on top. It would be completely noon-proof...... seems like all the EPP stuff is just kits......

yeah... I went 3S and ran the wing into a pole full throttle. I dunno if you have seen a foamie on 3s full throttle but they are fast. I broke the carbon fiber wing spar and decided to just retire it.

It served me very well though. I bet it has 30 hours in the air. very likely more than that.

+1! The Crack Yak is just ridiculously fun. I personally wish they'd make one a little bigger.

I love the roll rate on mine.

There's no such thing as overkill when it comes to rudder throw!

Anything past 90 degrees might be counter productive and require a weird hinge gap
