If you want to do spins and snaps with the onboard you will need to secure it better than I did.....I just stuck the velcro on the wing which was ok for the mild stuff I was doing .
guess you cant get the canera into the waterproof case anymore with the velcro

Skywalker would be good if your thinking of going long distance. I like to "fly low" and the EZ* with ailerons is better for that.

That'll be a nice setup. Thinking about ditching my Scorpion for that same motor.

Just saying, my 4s packs are turnigy blue 30-40c 3600, plenty and they are a heavy pair, about 30oz if I recall. Also I'm running 8s with a 18x8 turnigy and only pulling 67a. So my 100a ice isn't working to hard according to the load. Might save some money using a 100a instead.

Hmmm, if the default is no logging then probably not. But looking around the Castle web site, it looks like the new field card with the USB connection is the way to go for field programming and PC programming? It looks like what the Castle link does but adds the field programming for $5 more.

Thanks for the input,
Rob

definately. the field card can be used un the field as well connect it to a computer

when you bought your ice there may have been a coupon for a free castle link or a discount on the field card
