Finally got my maiden in tonight. All I can say is WOW WOW WOW! This airplane almost flies itself, it is the most comfortable plane in it's maiden I have ever flown. I was so hoping I would fall in love with this one on it's first flight and it was easy to do. This plane just does everything with ease, ke, ke spins, hake, harriers, flat spins, hovers, elevators, waterfalls, you name it it's no problem. Tumbles like a maniac, floats forever, I just can't say enough good things about it. Hope I can sleep tonight. Actually who needs sleep.

Sorry to hear about the crashes.

That Torque 40140-570 is a sweet setup for 5S 3600 15x8 or 4S 4000 16x8.

It is the same weight as the 4016-500.

You right Jetinteriors, and try some KE loops, she does them just fine.

Silly question - but how do you tell if you have the old ESC or the new one rated for 6s?

Usually off, should be the default setting on the esc.

Oh man, I havn't tried ke loops yet. It is one of the things I struggle with, some days it's no sweat then some days I can't get it no matter how I try. As stable as this airframe is I bet it's going to be a lot easier now. I'll give it a whirl today.

I also bought the airboss 80 amp esc from extreme flight and the instructions that came with it say the bec only works up to 5s. I was plannng on using 6s. Has anyone run a 6s with the 80 amp airboss and does the bec work with it?

How long does it take to get the turnigy nanotech 6s 3300 or 4200 batteries? Is there any place in the US from which they are shipped?
