LOL. I have used spiderwire fishing line, but maybe I'll do it before now.

Quick question. What would a 2 month old torque 4016t 500kv motor and airboss 85amp esc cost. A friend crashed his edge and is selling the stuff and has a guy interested in it but doesn't know what to ask.

I pushed the fibers tight together and hit it with thin CA. It work but I replaced it a week later and kept the old one for a spare.
Anyway good job on the repair. Where did you get the CF cloth(?) you had there?

That sounds like a great idea. I have at least a few thousand feet of jet line made of Kevlar from a past life. I can't believe I never thought about using it before. I think I'll try that on the old LG and see how it does for me. I have some very fine weave FG cloth that I usually use but Kevlar is some strong a$$ stuff. Always amazed me how much tension you could pull on jet line. Now I have a use for it.

If it's undamaged and he's selling it after 2 months discounted from $235 regular price to $102 it's a steal.

I say $130 lpu and 140 shipped. but that's me. I've seen a used one listed here for $160 delivered in good condition. I doubt he got more than $145 delivered.

It's only $45 plus shipping for new bearings, shaft and prop. adapter.

Got it from a LHS. http://www.debbiesrcworld.com/page/Contact-Us.aspx

Actually it was a harvested soybean field. I have flown there several times there with the MXS but yesterday was just one of those days I guess where it's a requirement to break something.

With with the 91'' and DLE 55 with Mejzlik 23x8 @ 7200 rpm, I get P/W=1,64 with model weight @ 8,5 Kg

I think the 91'' in terms of performance will be close or better than the 78'' as in the video sent before. It is OK power wise.

Opinions??
This is Power / Weight - 1,57-1,58 with 78''...I think is ok so if I manage to achieve something close to 1,6-1,7 with the 91'' I am ok...
