lots of good batts. Many use 4s 4000s from Gens Ace, Sky, and Glacier. I'm using Gens in my 74" Edge and 57sc. Also used them in my departed 71 Slick.

Are the Gens 25C up to it? My nanotechs are 45-90c but 25c is all I find for the gens.

i'm using 25c Gens in my 74 and 57. They work fine. Watt tested to 2300 watts in the 71"/74" and 1325 watts in the 57sc.

Im running the gen ace 25c 4ks up to 3000watts and they handle it just fine. Mine are even 2 years old. I also have new 60c gen ace 4ks and yes there is a power difference but its not huge. Those 25cs are great.

Does anyone have any insight as to when the gas 71 will be in stock again?

Gens Ace 25c 4000's here and they work great. I use them in an 8s setup on this plane and 4s setup in my 57" SC and couldn't be happier.

Does anyone have a 20x6 Xoar Prop that they are interested in getting rid of that is cut for a DLE Motor? Or does anyone know where I can get one? They seem to be out of stock wherever I look.

I will be getting the 400kv and use it with 6s on a 19x10 prop.

Just got some of these connectors on the batts and the speed control on the 70" slick and no spark on connections whatsoever. Awesome. Saw a post a few pages back about spark arresting and thought to mention it since everyone is talking about electric setups. We are flying 2 x 4S 5000Mah 50C/100C Flight Power batts in the 70" Slick now. Motro 4325, Xoar 18x8 Castle Ice 100, Savox 1268s all around, Orion life batt on receiver/servo power... Anyways, these connectors are pretty cool. You put a silicon tube with 5/16ths i.d. over the negative side on the batts and you have an added safety factor of no arc between sides being possible during transport or flight.

Already tried them, but I didn't like them as I like to put the male bullet on the black/negative wire, and the female bullet on the red/positive wires of the batteries. If I wanted to use these, I would have to put one on every battery I use with bullet connectors....too many...

Also....if you get the connector too hot while soldering the wire, the solder holding the resistors will melt, so, you have to make sure to use a heat sink when soldering them...

Of course, this is just my opinion... YMMV...

Since the resistor is inline with the main battery leads, how does this not increase the resistance while the motor is running? I'm not familiar with an 'SMD' resistor.

It's how these things are made.....there are actually two pieces separated by a piece of circuit board, but connected by the resistors. There is an outer ring that makes contact first to charge the capacitors, then as the bullet connector is shoved in father, it make contact with the main body or the female connector completing the circuit without the resistors. It has nothing to do with the type of resistor.

I thought I read somewhere that the spark was actually a good thing as it indicates that the capacitors on your ESC are still working correctly. Any EE's among us that can confirm/dispute this?

For $43, I'll just change my EC5 connectors once a year......they seem to get sloppy over time anyhow............maybe that is the spark causing an issue?
