They were out of stock at the time. The 9411s are also faster, by about .02 or so, and have more torque, which was the selling point for me.

45 degrees is too little. I found no difference in the tightness of my waterfalls at 80 degrees and at 65, which is still a hell of a lot of throw. On top of that 80 made everything too difficult, harriers were terrible to manage as was everything else other than tumbles.

But who knows, it may just be flying style.

That is the really great thing about the MXS. With the SFGs and wing tips it is like bringing three different planes to the field.

I'm with you on this. I also use a 3rd rate for extreme elevator. My normal 3D rate is about 45-50 It's too much of a pita doing harrier with the extreme elevator but KE spins and crankshafts wrap up a whole lot tighter with 85 of elevator. And parachutes are very close to vertical.

Finally ordered mine. Ships today. I'm looking forward to the leisurely build.

I bit the bullet and spent more on the HS-7245MH servos than I did on the plane! I hope they're worth it.

I also splurged on the motor: I got a Motrolfly, with the fiberglass mount. I have two Vox woodie props, 15x8 and 16x7, ready for it.

ESC is a CC Phoenix Edge Lite 100 with the separate 10-amp BEC set for 7.4 volts.

Needless to say, I'll be putting way more money into the air with this rig than I ever have before. I'm sure it'll be a great plane and all, but it'll need to be to be worth the expense...

It will be. I would buy mine again in a heartbeat.

Hello,

I have a MXS with the recommended Torque motor and Airboss ESC. I bumped the prop on a landing and now the motor is stuttering when I power up. It did not do this before I bumped the prop. What should I look for in the motor that might cause this stuttering?

Thanks,
John

I'd take the motor off, remove the bell, inspect magnets and possibly replace bearings.

I'd replace the prop with a well balanced prop first.

Yes, definitely check magnets and bearings.
Also check all your bullet connections, and if they're physically tight, then all your solder joints.
Someone just went through this recently and simply had a bad solder joint.

Oh... and if your bullets aren't individually wrapped either with heatshrink or tape where they plug together...
make sure that you don't have two rubbing up against each other. Had that one happen to me earlier this year.
Bad intermittent stutter, then when I came in I smelled insulation.
Initially thought I'd smoked the motor but had only damaged two of the bullets.
Replaced those and it has been trouble-free ever since.

You wouldn't think that such simple connections could be the source of so much trouble, but they can be. They're always the first thing you should check.
