Rx: Orange Rx R415 or R410 dsm2, depending on the connectors of your ESC and servo. Going with the R410 will save you from changing the connector on the ESC, while going with the 415 will save you some weight.

I can;t answer your other questions as I have not tried them.
Thanks Mike!

The Mig-29 is probably not the easiest to fly.
Sure, it floats well once you set it up and have the elevator reflex correctly, but i think it's the easiest to botch a launch with the Mig-29. Especially so if you are running on 2S and don't have the power to pull away from a bad situation.

I had the least problems setting up my F-18. I heard good things about the T-45 too, but have not gone round to fixing mine.

I think HK's little 2.2g servos are just as good as the 2.5g servos, though work best at 4.2V - not 5.0V. That extra 0.8V does make a difference.

Just need to solder a resistor diode in place in the red wire on the ESC. I've done this to a number of my ESCs.

Hi guys,

this is my first post. Before I was only a reader. My name is Michael and I'm from Germany so please forgive me any mistakes. English is not as easy to write for me as german
I've bought one of these nice little edf jets at hobbyking. It's the red arrows hawk. I saw a hole in both wings an under the cockpit. I think it's to attach a landing gear . But there was no landing gear in the box. Does anyone know where I can buy the associated gear?
If there is no possiility to buy it do you think the gear of the Ultra Micro Series from Parkzone is strong enough?
I absolutely want to try the little bird with a gear....
Regards from germany and again sorry for the bad english,
Michael

I think you will have to make your own which would be easy enough . Just keep them light and scale length , you should be ok . You might find they make a fair bit of drag so a 3s setup might be the way forward .

Michael,

Your English is not very bad at all. My German would be terrible. My Grandmother spoke German but I never learned it.

The parkzone gear might work, but I am guessing the wire size would be different. Sky Angel is all metric, and since Germany uses metric you could find suitable wire in your Country. The wire bends easy with simple hand tools and shouldn't take long to adapt.

Good luck and welcome to posting instead of just reading!

Fred

The Mig-29 and the A-10 both come with landing gear and mounting blocks. They plug right into the airframe on my F-18.

With those high amps I think you will be killing your poor battery very quickly.

Good morning (Morning in Germany),

thanks for your answers. I'm going to search some spare parts suitabe for the nanos. Maybe I can buy the landing gear which Joe has on his Mig-29 / A-10.
@Joe 1320 do you know if the gear is purchasable anywhere?

If I can't buy it I will follow your advices and try to make a gear on my own.

Oh @Freddie, tell your grandma "Viele Gre aus Deutschland"

Regards,

Michael

I'm assuming that 16.8 amps is total, and it's 8.4 amps per esc and motor?
