Has anybody used Futaba servos on it? What kind?

Tam,
If i use my CC Bec Pro,because im gonna be in the 90ish amp range with the TJ 1509 2y,can i plug both inputs in the receiver,and just run it 6 volts all around.I just wanna be safe.Kinda just dont trust one input to plug in.a guy from castle told me to plug one in and then run a y with another servo,because im using a ar-8000..
Thanks,
Dan

Speed is base on power out put and weight of the aircraft.
It doesn't matter much the size of the fan.
2.8kw in the Habu is about 152 top speed I got with TJ80 Midi rotor.
That is 8lb plane.
It interested to find out what it will do at 3.4kw and try to kept the weight light.

It easy add more power. But it so hard to kept it light with the adding power.

I'm on the mission.
Tam, do think this SE TJ80 is going to work??? Like you said,"weight" You might be doing all this and obtain the same speed as the TJ80 1509/1409-2Y set-ups you already have...

We havent gotten any RADAR or doppler on the 6s yet. It's my flying partner's, and he's on vacation for the next week. We'll get it soon though.

+1 for plugging both inputs into receiver on the CC BEC Pro. If for anyother reason that the Y harness would have added unnecessary weight. I have Tam's TJ80 setup with 8s on a 9 channel receiver (has two battery/data ports).

How fast is it on the stock setup?

How is the vertical on the stock setup? Can't tell on the eflite video due to the tumbling at the top.

On the high power setups like the 8s, what is the flight times?

Well I have flown Gary's 8s plane many times and it is probably unlimited vertical, 150 mph and flies for around 4:30. The timer is set for 4 minutes and it has never been a problem with taxi in and out.

I should explain the vertical. Since our fields have a 400' ceiling I don't know if it is truly unlimited, but I can say from lift off I can go straight up till its a dot. And its not inching its way up either Very fun plane to fly

Its the stock fan and a Mega motor with 8 cell 65c 4000ma XPS packs. Sweet plane to fly. It knife edges in both directions effortlessly flies inverted with little down input. I don't like the flaps on take off, but they are great on landing. Fun, Fun, Fun plane to fly. I really enjoy it. Were are going to try and get some good video today. I'll wring it out pretty good to show how sweet this plane flies
