Xoar 10mm hole update

I found some nylon spacers at a local Ace hardware today. They are 10mm OD x 6.3mm ID x 15mm length. I used my prop reamer to get the ID to 8mm and it looks like the hub on my 18x10 Xoar is 16mm so the spacer fits nicely at just 1 mm short. I think this will be a great solution but I'll let everyone know if I have any issues next time I fly.

I believe these are the same spacers on Amazon for about 10x cheaper than what I paid Even though the Amazon pics show white they are black in color, not that it matters.

Let me know if you head out there. I'll be sure to get some pictures and video for you.

Good news is that the soccer goals are not anchored anymore....they can be moved.
Since GoldCraft is taking care of the camera work, I'll be a grunt and move the soccer goals.

I'm gonna try to be out there around 1:00-1:30. Buddy and all the other guys are going about 12, but a few usually stay until 3-4.


On a side note...Cherry Limeade from sonic is ridiculously good. Hits the spot after breaking my back bending over that plane for 4 hours tonight.

In that case, good luck. I'll still be at work.

Right. I thought the 5625's would be fine. I should of just did the 985's in the first place, I was going too. Don't really need digitals anyways.
5625's are out of here!

I'll say it again: The 985MG is fast and strong, so is the 7985MG. One of them costs substantially more money (psst - it's the digital one). It sure seems to me that the analog 985MG is the better value. I replaced my 985MG on the elevator with a 7985MG and could not tell the difference. Save the money and stick with the 985MG... ...or, do your part for increased consumer spending and put the extra dough in for the 7985MG - it's a good servo.

Thanks,

I'll be ordering the 985s tomorrow. I have the 5985MG's (Had them) on the 70" slick and will put the 985MGs on the 68" Velox.

Well I checked my CG with the turnigy 20C 6s 5000 5 and 3/8" off the firewall. This seemed to balance perfectly at 160mm. I have my TP 2s 1350 in between the main pack and the firewall powering the CC BEC Pro. The flight pack weighs ~793g or 28 ounces. The rx pack weighs ~2.15 oz.

I've yet to get an auw. My current scale is too small.

Just thought I would show a speed and centering test video of the Align DS610 servos running on my Slick. These servos are fast with high torque but will require a high current BEC to run. Definitely don't run them on an internal BEC to a ESC.

Specs:
166 oz-in and 0.08s / 60 (6V) with a Futaba spline.
Currently using them with a WR Super-mini (rated at 10A cont/16A peak)

Picked these up for $60/each. Currently for sale at $226 for a 4 pack at GrandRC.com

And my ready to fly weight with Turnigy 6S 20C 5000mAh is 9 lbs 2oz.

Nice servo's. They sound and move like the Hitec 7955TG's.
The Hitec HS5625mg's don't sound and move like that. Thanks for posting.
