Try running those 7985's @7.4v. Very, Very fast! And yes they can take it from my experience.

maidened my second 71" slick today, sweet.

thanks,
tim

no the LHS only had a gas prop. It works I am trying to find an electric CF 19x8 prop but cant seem to find one. Guess I will have to go with a gas CF prop. Oh well

How does the 71 Slick like flying in not small but not large field size conditions( i.e. park with a good size soccer field)? Really, really considering the 71" Slick. I currently fly my 51 and 59 Slick at the park and have no issues with the field size.

Thanks

I'm using Savox 1258TG servos and loving them. Super fast and mighty strong.

PD

last week I flew my 71 in my cul da sac almost every day. You dont get a place to fly much smaller than that. It does fine. Also check out my video that TurnerM took that I posted a few post back. Thats a VERY small feild at the local middle school. Football feild size (with no in zones) and a (looks like the size of a t-ball feild) ball feild
