The 5s are:

106 x 34 x 40.8 (L x W x H)
311 gram weight (with a dean connecter)

pretty good for a 55C/110C 5s 2200mah lipo I think.

I bought them at:
http://www.giantcod.co.uk/

The best shop/best prices in Europe

Sebbe..

A slight derail here:

I thought the X was masculine....

Find out if the X slope soars this weekend.. To damn windy to do much else

Ill bring the video camera, quite a picturesque spot, I had better go disturb the peace!

Cheers for the photos Arctery, sebbe, can you take a photo of the pack jammed in the fuse, just to confirm it'll fit? Are there any other suppliers of Genace packs, perferably closer to NZ? (Asia?) (UK-NZ shipping is notorious) . Ive googled without much luck..

This is the first place (giantcod) where I have found a good range of the Gens Ace lipos, and to be honest, the only place who have 55C in stock and so cheap..

Is it really so expensive to ship to NZ ?

Yes, I will take photo to confirm soon...

Yeh, the UK has silly shipping prices to NZ (the rest of europe is resonable!?), no idea why. Must be a screw the colonies thing


Finally got hold of Neu anyway, 5S packs are on the way

Thanks Yuri!

Had first flight this morning. Flies bloody well!



Unfortunately the servo you included pre installed in the tail is stuffed... Lead to some fun at launching time

The servo itself refuses to center AT ALL. On the ground it seemed ok, just a little noisey. I haven't used one of those nukes before so I figured it would be fine. Yeah no... if I pulled up, i was stuck with up until i put some down in. Basically i had to "force" it back to center by driving it one way or the other.

Was a little tricky to fly with a elevator that wouldnt get without 2mm of center Landing was REALLY slow with full crow on.


I'll rip out the nuke and put in a DS09 and get back on it.

Thanx for a feedback on MKS "NUKE"- smallest servo.
MKS clames their servos are the best
Will not use them anymore.
Yuri.

NZ post must have something against Xplane tail servos, Yuri! Seriously bad luck.


Looking forward to getting two X's in the air at once.

Guys, I installed a d47 in the tail, and there is no looking back. I suggest you give it a shot if the stock one fails.
