Those are good lipos BUT don't run them full throttle all the time as they'll wear out

The same lipo with higher discharge wouid be better for the Q

Like 40C and over

I was thinking of getting getting some 4S's for the Q, but i just ordered 3 of these. Not bad for $35 bucks Shipped.

I got a 50A esc on the way in another order, but im not sure if it would handle 4S on the 480 2200kv Im thinking 60A esc would be a safe bet for a 4S on the Q's new motor.

Just had a reply from Lynne at HH UK and the says that the F27Q is due to land before the end of the month so we are looking at a couple of weeks or so for the UK and Europe, not so bad I think and well worth the wait for me.

AMEN TO THAT!!!!

I mixed in a but of up elevator on my DX7, slaved to the flt-mode switch (I have the DX7 heli ver), so that when I'm self-launching I flick that switch up...as soon as I'm up and away I flick that switch back to norm.

In a zillion years I can't imaging launching at anything other than WOT...kinda like a jet airliner only using half-power at takeoff??

I am late to the party in this thread, but have had my Stryker for a few days now.... WOW! This plane is fun!

I will do my best to catch up on all the info on this thread over the next several days, so I apologize if this has been covered already:

What alternatives to the stock PZ 6x6 prop is everyone using?
Is anyone using a folding prop?

Although the prop is supposed to spin out of the way when belly landing, mine did not and I have no spares... could someone send me in the right direction?

Is it just a standard 6x6 pusher prop, or does it have a unique design to it?

Can I use props from the original Stryker?

Am I missing something? I thought the Stryker is suppose to be launched with no throttle due to the pusher prop poising a danger to your hand or fingers. I have seen youtube post
of someones fingers being cut almost to the bone from hand launching the Stryker with the throttle on.

I think most people that are launching with throttle are not using a traditional overhand throw, but instead launching it like a discus and eliminating any danger...

I will admit, I had some sketchy no throttle hand launches with the overhand method....

Anyone using other props besides the stock ones?

EDIT: I just went a rechecked the pricing of 2 2200mahs. 2 Blue ones from Hobbyparts and 2 2200mahs Nano's 25-50C form HK. i was mistaken!!
The Nanos are 3-4 bucks cheaper. But that's not much of a difference!!.
Razor how were the shipping times from Hobbyparts!!
You can get batteries just as cheap at valuehobby.com, and they have deans on them already. Fast shipping and great customer service.

I have a few CAM props to try out. It's going to be poor weather here for the next week sadly. They are very good props, but very fragile. I don't expect the speed increase to be worth the expense of changing props every other flight.

I've planted the stock prop a few times, once completely into the ground. Each time it came out fine.

Prices seem decent but "We currently sell to customers in the USA only. International orders not accepted, including Canada." is a bit if a no go for some of us

I could not reliably launch using the finger mold underneath with no wind and
power off. Tried over and over into tall grass and got nowhere. Tried the
wingtip toss power on and got some really nice spins.

A variation on my flying wing toss works best, this is what I'll use now.

Grab the wing with my right hand, near the root. Thumb on top, one finger on
the underside of the wing. The rest on the center fuse behind the wheel.

Hold it sort of behind me, throttle up, 50 to 60% judge by the sound. I keep
looking at it all the time. Take a step or 2 and swing it forward trying to launch
in a straight line, slightly up. It's like pulling it forward in a straight
line. If the nose ends up a little high, there's enough power to keep it there,
I knock it down when I get to the stick. Try not to bring it around in an arc
or the left wing drops. Too much force drops the right wing.

The overhead toss without looking to see if it was straight and level just
didn't work for me.
