Have you had trouble with them before?

I just lost my brand new D06 with one in it...

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1158394

There is also a link inside my thread that goes to a thread about heat issues with them.


Hope this is helpful rather than a hinderence.

cheers

Nope, no issues with the 6250 yet. I finally started the motor and damn it is scary. On 4S I got to about 3/4 throttle and 1100 watts. I was too chicken to do WOT.

I'm wondering if I need to go back to 3S for the maiden since that flew my sunracer II with plenty of power.

Which F5D(s) are you comparing to in terms of space?

Ah ok. I'd consider their fuz's roomy compared to a D05/6 Certainly easier to fit the Rx and elevator servo behind the wing. But all-in-all, they are all tight... just some are worse than others.

It's tighter than a D05 too.

Overall it looks narrow but the area behind the saddle doesn't narrow (bottleneck) as abrubt as the Avionik. It'll be interesting to see one in person.

The plan is to do the maiden tomorrow, but it has been pretty foggy. So if the weather is good...tomorrow will be the day. I will try to get video for folks. I also have a radar gun, but it has a tough time picking up my Absolute...this is not going to be any easier.
