I uses stock dle 30 standoffs with 1 inch standoffs to get the proper length with the 4325,no flexing at all.

Thanks, guys. I actually have a used DLE30 in a box right here I'm not using anymore so maybe I can put the standoffs to good use at least. I was thinking about the Hacker A60-6XS V2 370Kv since I can turn a Xoar 20x8 to about 2200 Watts on a nice light 6S setup, in search of an AUW of 9.5 pounds. Is the 5320 the Motrolfly equivalent, Manta?

Never mind... getting lazy. I went to the site and saw the the DM4325-380 is the best 6S motor for a 70 3D airframe with a 19x10, so then the DLE standoffs should do the trick.

Thanks again, guys.

I just sold that exact setup,only because the batteries I had were 25c & I was not getting the longer flight times,I ran mine on 8s with a 20x8 Xoar & it had stupid power.Just use a 40c or higher battery & you should be good.as far as standoffs,stock DLE 30 with a 1 inch standoff & a few washers is perfect,I used all thread & teflon lined nuts.Minimal spinner gap & it never flexed.

Thanks.... the reason I was going the 6S route was because I have a bunch of 5000 at 50C that I was going to use in another plane that may not be ready until the end of the summer. I figured that I'd break them in well before then.

As far as flight time, my guess is that I'll use a capacity somewhere between the 60 EXP (410mAh per min) and the 50cc with a Q80 (750mAh per min), which means I should get about 6.3 minutes at 580-600mAh per min using 3800mAh of the 5000. Were you seeing at least 6 minutes?

When the packs were new I could get 6 minutes but power dropped off if it was flown hard(I like to fly hard)after a few flights the packs were getting drained a bit to much,I didnt figure out the packs wer ethe issue until after I killed 3 of em,during that time flight times were around 4 minutes.I have a 60 Edge & Extra from EF & both of those fly 6 minutes on 4s 4000 with a motrofly 4315 & cc 100 esc on 15x6 Vess.they have obscene power throughout the whole 6 minutes.After my experience with the 70 extra I figured I would be happier with gas being able to fly 15 minutes or so.I didnt want to but 400.00 worth of batteries so I sold it all & ordered a DLE35R.

makes sense... my brain has a 6.5 minute timer when I'm up flying hard so I usually don't fly past 7 minutes, even on non-electrics. With the right C rating in the 60 Edge, and only using 75-80% of the capacity, and never going below 3.7v per cell, our Sky Lipos and Gens Ace batteries last about 150 cycles before we start noticing voltage sag at the end of the flight.... about 30 cents per flight is not too bad.

I have the same motor and was running it on 6s with an 20x10. However after testing a bunch of combos I have settled at the 7s with an 18x10. I need some batteries with a higher C but the plane flys very nice at this spot.

I like those. They look adjustable. Are they?

One of the reasons (and there are a few) that I haven't pulled the trigger on this plane yet is because I may be disappointed with the 6S setup. A friend of mine in Orlando went to 8S 2200 on the 60 and loves it. The second reason is that I also have many 5S 5000's and putting two together in the 78 with a Hacker A60-8S V2 188Kv swinging a 22x10 is something I know I won't be disappointed with.

Each standoff is a 1/2 inch different than the other and the set comes with what I'm guessing are three 1/8 inch spacers.

Actually, they come with four 1/4", 1/8" and 1/16" spacers for each standoff.

Just FYI a guy named Cmala here on the forums makes really nice custom aluminum standoffs. Cut to whatever size you need.

Yes they are, SWB provide different thickness of spacers in order to fine tune length.
