I really don't feel safe, due to this bearing issue. Hope this won't haunt me during maiden flight

And if someone with better knowledge than me can point me to witch of the two bearings mentioned I should get, I might get rid of the thought of going down due to some silly bearings that can't handle my determination to keep the 737 in the air safely.

Dear Fellow

I finished over 200 flights by 4S battery with Scorpion HKII2221-8 motor on BD-5J(60mm EDF), F35(70mm EDF), Ele-Bee pod(small prop pusher) and 737(70mm EDF) never have problem.
Please note that the Amps to draw is just 30A on 3S and 35A on 4S.
This is the reason why we choice this US$55 motor for 737 combo not US$15 cheap motor.
BUT, please thurst me, 3S is good enough on smooth runway and just keep you plane light by max 8000mAh battery. 10000mAh is still OK but no need to do so.

My bad, it's close to 3 o'clock in the morning here (for the 3rd night in row) and the small grey ones does not work at full speed anymore (they won't at work tomorrow either).

But to wrap it up; I need one of each type per motor, is that right?

Should be use two battery for two motors, but we did try one 5000mAh battery(Hyperion 45C) for two motors and result is acceptable(not my suggestion).

Ok so I will use Just one. How are we looking on those New Continental rudder logo? Are you redoing the Continental Logo to fit the 737 or just the rudder?

Rookie what vinyl are you using to cover that airframe? I was thinking about using Oracal 600 series (2.75m) or similar

When covering the wings, the quality is not so important, but be sure it's not a "campaign type" a lesser quality that doesn't stick that well due to the fact that it is designed to be removable at at later time. Hence it is slightly thicker and more difficult to form round compound curves.

I was actually thinking about this stuff.

http://www.uscutter.com/ORACAL-651-I...hed_p_260.html


Albeit I'm putting it on a Habu, which has a bit more complicated fuselage, but no more complicated the the 737's nacelles. I figure I can slightly heat it with a hair dryer before setting down on more compound curves, and 'panel' it if needed. Two 15"x10 yard rolls costs about the same as a few cans of spray paint and adhesion promoter.
