I haven't flown it with the GR-45, but the GR-60 is great- ultra controllable. not to big at all. balances the plane well. You will never need WOT with the 60- it has killer power.

Steve,

I am using the 8s version for the simple reason that it will let me move up to a bigger airplane in the future.

Kind of surprising that the ICE "light" says to not use it for helicopters or large planes...Since it is a 100 amp ESC I don't think you would use it on small planes....

Ben, with the Gr60 and 14x8, are you using that as your freestyle bird right now?

Did you go with something like a 15x8 for 3D or prefer that prop all around (14x8)?

Thanks

It really doesn't matter...14x7, 15x7, 15x8...it's all too much power, and very fun. I like the way the 8 feels, some will like 7 or 6.

Hi Ben....

Went looking for an APC 14X8, and my local hobby shop doesn't carry them, but he says he has all of the APC props...are you not using an APC?? Settled on a 15X7...

I'm still using the same beat up old Xoar as before.

15x7 will be fine.

Go ahead and bolt on a New Xoar.


I'm a fan of the 15x7, Xoar and APC's.

Steve T,

Since you asked about the ICE 100 and the GR-60 I am assuming you are using them together. If not disregard this question. Are you having compatibility issues between the two? I am sending my ICE back to CC because I am having timing issues and the motor sounds like a coffee grinder. I am curious if the motor is not yet compatible with the ICE software or if I just ended up getting a bum unit. My new plan is to run a Scorpion 4020-10 with a 15x10 to get the same feel as the GR-60 with a 14x8.5. By the way CC has great customer service.

-Scott
