.cool to hear.....53 and 54ish work even nicer,but yes-time to get the flaps sorted,it just makes life so easy.I have my flaps working great,at least for me,i have them set to about 50deg,with 3mm down elevator mixed in....i hit them right before the runway,then it balloons a bit,but i just fly through it,and it starts to slow up FAST...it is just sweet when you find what works for you.I got a few flights on mine today,this is becoming my Go-To plane...What a BLAST.

I am not sure,i would have to check...What i did was just give more deflection every flight until the plane developed snap out conditions,then dialed everything back 5%.....same as i do on every plane.I will tell you this,where i have them set now,makes the wing bend ALOT : )

LOL, neither did I until I was sent away from the house by wife studying for exam tomorrow.

Yes should be a good choice. Make sure the bearings are OK.
I'm going to shoot for 1600KV in that size motor if I decide to put an outrunner on my X plane and 4-5S setup.

Bad part -,its on the ground
Good part -,its in one piece
