There's this one guy running one to 2400 watts in a 60"EXP with crazy power and like 20g heavier then my 4315-480. Only a 15x8 prop, I prefer a 16" on the 60" airframe. But if wound right is a viable option.

I have my Set to go off at 4.2 Volts and have never had a problem. It seems like these batteries that come with this Transmitter have not held up very well. I am only getting about 2 1/2 Hr at the field on a full pack before I am getting a alarm. I really want to go to the Lipo pack but have just not justified paying 70 Bucks for the Lipo. I know you can get the turnigy for like 40, but I don
t know if I trust with my planes!

Check at valuehobby.com. they have some tx packs. Just make sure the dimensions will fit in your tx before buying. If they don't have the right battery connector you can use the pigtail from the stock battery. Just solder the wires together and seal with shrink tube.

And I just hit the buy button for an electric orange 71" Slick, so That would make me a tentative official owner and member of the sick slick club.

Now if Big foot were just available Then I could be a fanatic.
