I have not a clue. I got it like that. The guy told me he put the spinner in a drill press and cut by holding a small saw very still with the drill press spinning. Then he sanded and smoothed with fine grit. Looks Kewl I think.. If I messed it up,, I prob would not redo it. Lol!!

Flys with a little more umphh,,, I don't like too much power. I like just enough to get out of trouble,, I had ken wind this one a little less than the standard for 6s. That way I could push 8s 4000 if I wanted to later! Missing my SFGs!! My friend is redoing them for me.. I have harrier landed way too much!! Man I love this plane!!

I have a Mej 20x11WE that I have tried on my A60-6XS. It delivers plenty of power but kills the battery too quick for my tastes. Very quiet. I am waiting for them to get the 20x11E back in stock.

so i got my first flights on mine last night. it really is a nice plane. with the SFG's it has literally no wing rock in a harrier.....it's more stable in high alpha then my 100cc.....very impressive. high rate rollers are blistering fast....too fast for me so i came off the high rate from "all i can get" to about 40%.

i got two 4 min flights (didn't want to push my batts too hard first time out) and while landing on the second flight all controls went mushy.....i thought i had just lost an aileron until final and then i started to feel very disconnected from the plane.....to the point i said to my spotters....."um....i don't think i have this". i managed to land safe after about 20 secs of very exciting flying. checked all the surfaces and they seemed fine, checked the data logger and all looked good. check the reciever pack (A123 1100 mah)....dead. tried to to charge it....only took 90 mah. brand new pack and i made a really rookie mistake by not cycling it prior to putting in my plane. been flying a lot of years and i've never done that.....i got really lucky. it's either a bad pack or it's my charger. taking it to my buddy's house to check it on his charger to rule that out.

I also had several A123's go bad on my giant Cub- it was running on 16 a123 cells; then made the move back to Lipo for cost reasons

I use a LiFE pack in mine. I'm so glad I have it as I lost the main pack the other day when it came disconnected. I was able to land it in one piece!

I have 2 3/8 from the mount to the firewall but I have the old version with the larger motor box. Hope this helps.
