Not saying its a bad built in bec but it says to drive 4 digital or 5 analog servos and people are putting flaps and retracts on the p-47. so to me that would be 8 servos on board. maybe it should be put in the manual that if your going to use more then the stock setup might want to invest in a separate bec to drive the servos.

i just picked a p-47 up today and grabbed a CC Bec to go along with it, i might just be paranoid but i will follow what it says on the esc for the bec that it can drive 4-5 servos because i am going to use more ill get a separate bec

aaaaahh, a familiar 'face', welcome Icky!

glad to see ya picked up one of these P47's... and like everyone here, you're gonna fall in love with her fer sure!

that power plant you're looking at gets a some great press in these here parts. Maybe one day I'll swap out my stock hardware for that one, I guess it turns the T-Bolt into a T-Beast! LOL


lookin' forward to your posts

If something goes funny, Horizon Hobby support is so great.

At our LHS they have backed Monokote trim stock 5'' X 36" in various colors, and I found a silver that is a perfect match for the PZ TBolt. Just right for covering servos, wires etc.

Got a motor question. I like more power and mainly interested in thrust. I'm gonna do an EFlite power 25 and the question is either the 870kv or 1250kv. I'm thinking the 870kv with a little bigger than stock prop. What do guys think from your experience?

I have a Turnigy Trust 55A switching bec esc on the way.

Thanks

Icky

It all comes down to this guys. PZ,HH, H9, E-Flite tests the equipment they put in a the planes before they sell them. They may not update the documentation that comes with the esc after every new release, but if they package it together than you know they have flown it and it passed muster.
If you leave the motor /prop combo stock the stock esc will handle it. If you want to try different props, not using stock PZ servos, you decided to save some money with the HK retracts, whatever you are not running tested equipment and it would be a good idea to either add a seperate bec, or go with a bigger esc and higher rated bec.
Mine has been loaded since I got it. Only have four packs threw it, but never had a problem. I have decided to play with a 4 blade prop so I went with a spare 40amp E-Flite esc I had.

Did you even read my post? Listen: we are the ones who wrote the specs on the speed controller. We have explained how we wrote those specs. We have fully tested the P-47 setup with all recommended options. It works.

The specs in the ESC manual are conservative because they were written as a set of instructions for when the ESC is sold separately. We have to allow extra headroom in that case because we don't know which servos a customer is going to use. Some servos draw more than others, so we have to knock the recommendation down a little. With the P-47 we know which servos are being used. We can test the exact setup and know that it works.

Dave,
this is probably a ridiculous unanswerable question, but... the inexpensive HXT900 servo that a whoooole lot of people use in the ParkZone planes over the years as replacements once the stock servo wears out or fails... by chance were those particular ones tested or their specs taken into consideration? or do you have any thoughts if extra caution should be used if these are installed in our planes?

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...?idProduct=662

I happen to have a PNP T-Bolt but have used the HXT900 for the flaps... I have the e-flite retracts onboard as well but no external BEC and no issues here at about 45+ flights and don't anticipate any, just curious

lovin' this P47 btw

-Mark

Interesting. That's a shame. Is there a any chance the Replacement Airframe pkg. over there is different than what is offered here in the U.S. I wonder?Did you order it directly from HH? I'd get a hold of HH and see what's up.

I think you are right. There must be some other version or kit with just the fuselage, wing, and tail feathers. Interesting.

A little late in the game here, but I have also experienced brief glitches with my Spektrum 7000rx a couple times when I have flown directly over a weather transponder close to where I fly. Predicting an issue from that is a no brainer. If anything, I've been nothing less than impressed with how quickly my radio system recovered from being saturated in such a heavy concentration of RF.
Amazing that it didn't induce enough voltage in my wiring to fry something!

Huff,

Trying real hard not to say anything sarcastic here.

No, we have not tested Hextronics servos. I can guarantee you will never see any recommendations from Horizon Hobby for anything relating to a product from that company.

thanks David, I totally get it


sorry, I had an after-thought... can you reccommend any servos at all except for Horizon Hobby's? I'm just interested in servos that Horizon would have tested or considered to be within the 'overhead' allowed
