New Guy looking for some Foamie, Spektrum and power advice . . .
Been lurking here for a while now and couldnt resist any longer
I am interested in putting together a particular plane setup and really could use some patience and a few solid answers. So far, you guys seem to be a really helpful bunch. Ive been trying to do alot of reading and that may have been my mistake, because I seem to have gotten myself lost in all of the "details." Anyway here goes . . .

You asked? My 2 cents.....
1. Yes a AR7000 is a little chunky on this size model. My choice would be a AR6110e. I personally have the older version AR6100 for this size foamy and would not part w/them. But if all I had laying around was a 7000 I'd throw it on and go fly-in.
2.? Not sure if this is a question or statement.
3. The BEC built into a basic ESC will power this size system just fine. Do not over complicate a simple foamy. A good quality ESC like CC (I'd recommend a ThunderBird 18amp)will do just fine.
4. All good choices, but top of the line gear, that comes at a higher $$$$ You can do a nice little foamy this size on a budget. Motor, ESC, 4xServos and a LiPo for less than $100 and you will have a great time. PM me if you want budget advise or direction.
5. Do not get all wrapped up in the hottest this or that "It's just a foamy". You will or should crash it at some time. It's all about having fun learning to fly.
