Don's stuff is AWESOME. his stuff is truly plug and play and comes balanced smooth as silk. best stuff you get for your money as far as I'm concerned. thanks for the 4S system you sold me Don. as said before, it's awesome.

Clipping the stinger wing tips?

I've read through the first 20 pages of this thread so far. Very cool. I just got my stock stinger and haven't maidened yet. i will fly stock for a while. The flare on the wings should really make it stable. Has any one clipped the outside wings 2.5" to reduce drag and speed the stinger up? Might be worth a try, but make it squirrelly?

on 4s its's already so fast you own't need to.. maybe you can gaisn some miles without the wingtips but on the other hand she's very twitchy on the aileron and need the aileron movement to be reduced.. so.. som eextra stabiility won't hurt

The 3S setups are about 380 watts, and 4S about 600 watts. So either a 3S 2200 lipo or 4S 2200 lipo. If you want over 100mph then 4S.

I'm very impressed with this plane, I got it for $65 plus shipping. It used to be you'd get a good deal but half the servos didn't work, hardware was missing and the plane flew poorly. Everything on this one worked, I got all the hardward plus some spare parts, went together in 30 minutes, didn't need any fiddling, and it flys very well stock out of the box. It's not very fast but it works and flys well, fast rolls, tight loops without stalling... a great value.

I have a bunch of $12 3S 30C 2200 LiPo's and I put in a Orange 6ch receiver with satellite I had spare. So far, after 20 flights, the only issue is some paint flakeing off.
