Ah, I see. OK, I am somewhat less scared now. I will do some on-the-ground testing before the maiden.

Revolectrix is Singapore-based, maybe I should look into their batteries too.

the a50-12l on 6s will need a 19x10 or 20x10, depending on strength of batteries. on 8s it would run an 18x8 or 18x10

There is a black wire connecting both of the male deans. You would split this wire in half and solder the anti spark bullet there. So you would plug in your batteries first, then finish the circuit with the bullet. The deans connectors never see the spark so they no longer get damaged.
Roger,so they just have to be inline somewhere... so that is where you make the final connection? just want to be sure.

Yep, I velcro the batts in and hook up the deans. When I am ready to fly I finish the connection with the bullet. This way the deans never see the spark.

I live in Macedonia....and there are no close hobby shops. HobbyTown USA is about 35 min north in Mentor...

There are a couple of smaller shops that don't have much plane items..so their not worth mentioning.

I mainly hang out at Austintown Hobby..which is an hour away. (close to where I grew up)

Thank you SportFlyer2 and robj for your replies. I've never bought a 3dhs frame brand new from a shop before so I didn't know what to expect, and many of the videos I see of the 72" extra shows a bare frame, so I wanted to know if it came with any decals at all.
