Ultracote True Red     21-023 ferrari red
Thanks Steve. I've a few more doodles... plenty of time to settle on something I like, I suppose. Now I'm sober it looks like ice cream... mmm, ice cream.
And...Tamiya "rattle can" Ferrari red spray pain it a very close match to the red in case you feel the need to paint something...

What size screws are you guys using to mount the 5320? Also, will a 2s 800mA battery be enough for the servos or will I need something a little bigger? I've have some just hanging around and wanted to use them.

Thanks

2s 800 will probably be ok for 3-4 comfortable flights. best to just check it after each flight for a while to get a sense of what it is drawing.

I get 7 flights on a 3s 1000 regulated to 8v. usually put back around 600-700 mah. with a 2s pack and less capacity, I would imagine it will be dipping towards 7.2 volts after 3-4 flights, but it will depend on your flying style, your servos, setup, etc.

Thanks guys, I do have some small 3s packs. I might just go that route instead.

The 3DHS web site indicates the wing screws for the 72SC are 6 mm in diameter. However, my wing screws measure 5 mm. I know my eyes aren't what they used to be. Will someone please confirm one way or another the diameter of the 72SC wing screws? I'm looking for metal replacements. Thanks.

Yes they are. I replaced mine with the Secraft Wing Bolts.

No problem... Word of advice.. If you permanently mount them I suggest you screw them in first to the wing and mount it on the bird. For some reason one side didn't line up properly and i had to make a field modification.
