Does anyone know a good website on brushless motors? I have an extra $6 28-12 that I plan to rewind with 24 ga 9 turns. Just curious about things like what wire gauge to use, how efficiency is affected, theory, etc. Thx.

We have had many requests for a Assassin sized Reaper. This is it.

I have been flying the beta test planes for about 6 months and have several out with very positive feedback.

Of course this would come out *right* after I bought the Assassin!

The Assassin is still the best combat plane. The battery is on its side and the servos are vertically mounted protecting the radio and battery. I still plan on flying both depending on where and how I am flying.

Don't worry, I am in the same boat. I wonder if anyone wants to buy a built assassin.

The elevon mix on the DX6i is very limited and has some problems. To do what you want (differential & flaps) I'm pretty sure you need to run a DUAL AILERON setup with a MIX of ELEV->FLAPS to emulate elevons. This also means you will need a receiver with more than 4 channels.

They are the same as the Assassin so we can ship them internationally.

I finally figured it out.....thanks for the help. After doing some reading online, looks like the DX6i is known for its shortcomings with the elevon mixing. Still using the same elevon mixing and ended up using the MIX1, setting the gear as the master and the elevator as the slave. I can even use the flap switch to activate it like normal. Like trying to solve a rubik's cube sometimes. Appreciate it again. Now....have to start saving for that Widowmaker!
