OK so neither one is great without the sun. That's fine most planes aren't. I wish I could get the yellow 64" but it's out of the budget for now

The 48", at least my 48", flies every bit as fun as the 64", so I wouldn't worry too much. Indeed, I think the 48" MXS is a better value measured in fun / $1.00.

I flew the blue black and white in all conditions (including snowy days) and it wasn't bad for me.

Need help!

Got the stock motor and it "appears" the shaft is backward. So I would have to take off the clip on back, put the shaft through and relic. Did anyone else have this problem? Don't want to tear it apart without checking it...will try to send pic

Chris Avllino, there is a prop adapter included with the motor. You don't need (or want) to reverse the shaft. The EF/torque prop adapters are better in my opinion, better than the grip adapters used with, for example, e-flite power X motors.

Use loctite when you put the prop adapter on.

Also, don't forget to put the shaft collar on the shaft side. File or grind a flat if there isn't already one (I can't remember if the 48" sized torques come with a shaft that already has a flat on it). Again, use loctite. The shaft goes on before the motor mount.

Thanks!!!!!!!! I really do appreciate it. I think I was taking stupid-pills. I got it squared away, but had that moment of panic that I hit a major snag. Thanks again LoneWolf.

whoops i wondered what that collar was for. my son's been flying his a for a while without it. what exactly does it do and how important is it, translated i'm not looking forward to taking the spinner, prop, cowling and motor off to put that little thing on there!
k.t.

I would put it in. I am no mechanical guru, but I guess it does two things. First, it acts like a stronger e-clip. Second, in the event of other failures, it is one more stop to prevent the shaft, bell, prop from separating.

If you don't put it on you may not have to remove the prop and spinner, it just might remove itself for you.
