Neu 1115 1y
Ice lite 100
Hyperion DS09's
Thunder power 5s 1800 mAh 65c pack.
Apc 4.74x4.75 and also run a 5x5 sometimes. 4.75 works real nice.
1733 watts
105 amps with the 5x5 prop.

I am using a carbon rod for the elevator. Works awesome. The rest is pretty simple. Also using heli ball links on the Ailerons. Zero flutter...

If using the ice lite you can flip up the two capacitors and this will give you a little extra room for the battery.

I think there may just be enough room for a 6s 1800 pack? Was looking at it tonight but it flys great now so I will leave it.

Also using a 250 mAh Life battery that sits under my receiver. This realy works great. It only uses less than 30 mAh per flight. No switch,no regulator.

I dont have anything to comapre it to..

Terry,
Hello ,
Any chance you could post some pics ?
I will start on my Jibe 2 in a couple of days and can use all the info as this is new terrain for me .
What Castle ( lite or not ) ?
Where and what Life 250 Mah did you get ?
Links U used on controls ?
I plan to use initially 4S batt and later on 5S ( Maybe if I ain't scared ... )
What Neu Motor ?
1Y , 2D or 2.5D ?
Thanks for the info .
Bruno .

You should really look at something else then a Neu. There are alot of motors around where the manufacturer has good QC and not the least some dignity. Mega 16/40/1 for example. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1497537

That's exactly the point

I'm using a 16/35/1.5R 2700KV on 5S in my Viper, motor get's pretty hot after flying,
amps around 100amps and in bursts, some cooling but not too much.
Performance in air is awsome, will try graupner 5.2x5.2 and TP batteries

It is a 1y motor.
Ice lite 100 with caps turned up.
Links are some heli links I had laying around.
Tried to get a picture of the elevator carbon rod but could not really get it.
EC5 conectors.


Terry,

Here are a few pictures. The links are a little over kill.

I was able to fit a 6s in the Swist today. They fit tight but not to tight.
Not sure what prop to use. I am running a Neu 1115 1y. Probably a 4.1x4.1? Not sure will have to try a couple of props out.

Props I have are.
4.75x4.75
4.5x4.1
4.1x4.1

To bad the weather is crap here now.

Terry,
