It is the single antenna in orange box. I actually also have a satellite for it but never installed it :-)

Bill, If you go back through the thread most that have run the stock setup on 5S gave numbers in that range. The stock 60A ESC at least in the one I and a few others have has pointed towards it being identical to a Turnigy 60A Plush which in my experience is a fairly robust ESC. I have used many of them and have thoroughly abused/tested them with great success. So by all indications this ESC on 5S in the 55-60A range should be just fine especially with it in the ducting for cooling.

there is a small peice of the cone sticking up on the inside of the tube... should i tape it down..or try and cut it down

When I was installing my cone, I noticed the same thing. In couple of spots cone was not flush with foam. I trimmed it shorter and installed whole cone on silicone. Then I used silicone to create smooth transition.

Pretty much. I never really had the knack for balancing the motor, I think you stick a piece of tape on it then spin it up then move the tape to see if it gets better then when you find the right spot, build up CA on it until it's stops vibrating.

on the fan you just need something that will let it spin free without much friction. The EDF's are so light you need the magnetic one so that one end of the rod is suspended in mid air by the magnetic field. Then you spin it to find the bottom it always settles at, then build up tape or CA inside the cone until it balances out and you can spin the fan and have it rest in a different spot each time, or at least as close as you have the patience for

Oh and you have to unscrew the motor mount and shift it around a bit so the fan has the same clearance on all sides.

I will tell you the box is VERY large. The only way I think to ship to you would be to shorten the fuselage somehow to make it a more shippable friendly box.

As far as going to go to 70mm I was going to put a lander DPS into it but seeing how you all say the stock fan runs on 5S OK. I ordered two 5S packs and will balance the fan so it runs smooth then have some fun with it. I am probably going to ditch the gear and hand launch it.

all the Lander Fans I had so far were all very well balanced...no rubbing no vibrating no nothing. so I don't think you need balancing

But i'm already used to paying 40-70 usd shipping from us. they are still cheaper than europe.
USPS Air 10-20 days is the cheapest way by far.
BHs website always overcharges me btw. The webpage gets the shipping price directly from USPS but when the shipping ticket is issued it's always cheaper and they always refund me. So if you try to get the price electronically its always a higher price than the actual..
Have this in mind
