Billy,

Don't think I didn't notice your edit on post # 5871.

Now you will really know what a MEGA howl is like.
max can be 7S/8S , not sure of 8S prop yet, but 7S and below are safe bet for great prop size....with throttle control, couple heat sinks etc.
8S max for FJ/FJU : Maybe too high voltage...To be determined/proven.

Even just 6S should get you about 170 MPH with 7" prop if everything is perfect A-Z.
Not bad for 16/X.

Those helis are Trex 600 Pro and the Trex 700, The 700 is a beast for sure, but I like the 600 pro better....better power to weight ratio and being a speed freak , that thing is a rocket, and with the DFC heads seems to make the 600 unbeleivably nimble

Did you use just regular spray paint before coating it?

I have used a few different kinds and so far everything has worked. The paint in the pic is Florescent orange rustoleum. It may orange peel on some paint, but disappears with a second coat. The turtle deck is cheap black enamal and it had a mirror finish after one coat

Just so you know. Imitation is the largest form if flattery.

My 600 ESP is my favorite also !!!!
They didnt have the Pro when I got mine, or I would have gotten that. My 450 Pro is a close second, but thats just due to the simple 3s2200 or 3s2650 battery. Much easier to play all day with that than to charge the biggies

I used to have the 600 esp, the 600 pro on 12s is a whole new game, they really dont compare especially if the esp is 6s like mine was. I can probably get 100mph out of my 600 pro.
