Since you are powering the Rx by the Bec Pro, you are only monitoring the voltage output of the Bec, not the flight pack, right ?

Regard running 2s directly to the servos, I think one 2s 1500/1800 mah 25c should be plenty for the servos (more than 30A of current available) --> should not sag below 7.0 V, IMO.

Yes its gas, with dle 55. Im powering it with dual battery switch (emcotec) high voltage from 2 2S 2100mah battery 20C. Your right, i get some Blow Back. I dont think its my power source cause I think it can handle the power of the servos. For the Geometry of arm and horn well I followed the manual. Another thing is I change it from Blue Bird servos that have 25kg. of tourque, TG and HV aswell. Thats why I get this new servos with much more torque but same result. Maybe I'll try another set of servos for my ailerons. Any suggestions.

When I fly it slow to mid stick trottle my roll it a bit fast but not fast enough for my taste, when half throttle to full, the roll is so slow and its like I'm in low rate even I have full deflection (50').I think my servos are stalling. What bothers me is that I have 30kgs. Of torque each of my servo. Its Dymond 9999 TG. Its a titinium gear, High Voltage, .11 sec. Of speed at 7.4 volts. Now whats wrong with my plane or setup?
I'm running JR 8911HV servos on mine and get zero blow back even at crazy speed. I would look at your servos first.

Try getting a high quality camera zoomed in on your plane and roll it and see if you are actually getting blow back...

I used the Airtronics 94780 on my ailerons, overkill but I never starve for power.

anyone here play around with the little blade helis at all? I was thinking about picking one up as I noticed that it helped me out with orientation a bit more.

Figured it would help with orientation in tumbles, its getting cold up here and I need something to do inside

Better yet, he should get a cheap key chain camera and mount it on the fuselage facing the aileron.

Yes I got one of those micro cameras. I'll put one on my next flight to see whats happening in a high speed full trottle roll. Anyway thanks forthe help guys. I'll report back bt the time I solved the problem. By the way I'm beginning to put my 60" Extra EXP. I know I gonna love this plane more than my 2 48",because bigger is better.

The 60" Extra EXP is amazing!!! It's My favorite bird right now, due to how convenient it is.. I'm loving the 7min flight times, and massive power that the torgue,airboss,3600 6s combo provides. I'm loading the car to go fly mine as we speak!

Hey Tim What are you doing to get the 60" to fit in your car? I have a RAV 4 and can just get my 48" Edge to fit in the back behind the back seat. Thanks Kelly

I take the wings off,and bag them for safety..The plane comes with a nice bag, made of the aircell material(like the larger planes) that keep them cool in the car. I also make sure the wing bag shades the canopy in the car .. It only takes two minutes to throw them on, and if it's a lunch break, or a fast flight at the park, I'll just skip the SFG's.

I like the size because I can still get away with flying it at parks, construction sights, etc..

It's Still a BIG plane!

Tim, what 3600 Lipos are you using? I am going to order my Extra when the next batch comes in and was thinking about the Gens Ace 6s 3800's....

My kid has the 3300's and the plane is awesome too....
