bigger flys better starzen.but i dont know the weight differences between the two planes.i do know the 57sc is pretty light,but im sure it is a bit heavier than the 47,so im sure it will be gentler in the wind.all the 3dhs extras ive flown have been rock solid.

Great job Rob!! Scott

Is that a Hobby City prop? 16X8 right?
If it is... how do you like them?

Was also messing around with some precision/snap rolls on different rates. Really should set this up for precision flight to be doing this, but all this was flown on the stock 3D setup w/ slightly tuned rates.

So here ya go.

Like it just. Setup is GR-60 on 4S 3900, and it pulls great. So far, all of the Turnigy props I've tested have been well balanced right out of the bag as well.

Sorry I missed that earlier. Yes, the 57 SC will handle a lot more wind than the 47. If you like the 47 SHP, you'll love the 57 SC.

Thx for the compliments.

They are the new Hyperion G3 4000mAh 4s Packs.

Ideally, I'd fly the TunderPower Pro-Power 3350mAh 4s or Hyperion G3 3300mAh 4s Packs in that setup

I will butt-in here... sorry...

Hyperion G3 4S 4000mAh 25C pack. We were also running a TP 4S 3350mAh 30C pack as well. The SC doesn’t hardly notice the difference in the pack sizes. I personally like the 4000 pack for the extra couple minutes of flight time. But like Tyler noted, the lighter pack is even better for his flying... Awesome!

I tried those on my SC the other day and liked it. My 3300 packs are Extreme V2 series left over from my Aspera. They have about 20% (my guess) less punch than the latest Pro Power packs, and they seem to provide just the right amount of power for me... personally, that is. Everyone likes something different.

I've been dialing my power back on my planes and I'm finding lower power to be much easier to handle. Like I said, I like the SC on 4s much, much better than I liked the SHP on 5s. I like the lighter feel, and I like not having so much power that it is difficult to control.
