I found that one out on my Buck Huck (not 1.5). I bought a 12X6 here at the LHS and it fit fine with the EF spinner on the Omega. Then while I was down visitng my sis in Phoenix I went to a Hobby shop and picked up a couple more becasue of their great prices. Broke the one from my LHS and put one of the new ones on and the hub was much larger! I just found a thinner washer to put on it and it is working fine! APC can be sneaky sometimes. I did not know about the new hub thickness until I experienced it.

There is big sea of blue on the front of blue 1-1/2 buck huck. I would use a contrasting color for the spinner to break it up, not blue. JMO.

Good point. I think I am going to go with the white.

FWIW...I've always gotten GREAT pricing AND service from ServoCity. They always treated me RIGHT. Glad to know they follow threads like this.

But the last few servos I ordered came from 3DHS...it's pretty neat now to be able to order them with the airframe and motor. Even my latest ICE100 came from 3DHS. That 3DHS company is looking like a "hobbyshop" now in addition to just being an ARF manufacturer....and I'm really happy about it.

Anyone use the Airboss 45 Elite for this plane? Any opinions on it? I can't find an ESC to save my life and I found one of these. Oh yeah, I have the Omega motor.

On the 3DHS site they use the white Extreme Flight 40mm spinner (or at least that is what they suggest and what the photos look like).

Cool, I missed that spinner recommendation. Thanks.

Okay, minus the spinner, I now have everything (ordered) to complete my plane! Oh my goodness gracious!!!!

I even got that swank 3M glue gun and glue today. I'm so pro!!! Building starts promptly tomorrow night! I don't have the servos though and I notice the installation of the rudder servo is one of the first steps. So, we'll see how far I can actually get without doing that. I don't want to rush it and hose something up though.

I must say, the build process for this plane looks really simple compared to the 34" 3DHS foamie I just built. haha

we're out of stock for another couple days, shipment is on the way already, they are avail. for backorder.

the multi-buy deal goes through once you increase the qty. to 3+ and hit add to cart

I used that esc and loved it. Perfect for this plane. Mine is toasted but it lasted until the motor seized. You can't go wrong with it. It is very nice quality. I believe the previous owner of my 47 edge paid close to $100 for it at the time.

Thanks Rob. I will be placing an order soon too so I also can start building my 1.5 buck huck that I got from you. I am tired of looking at the box.

Cool! I just bought one that was only used once.

Would have bought new but I couldn't find the X55, the Castle 75 Lite or the Airboss new... Anywhere.

My apologies. Quite the accident. I put it in the wrong thread. I'll repost in the correct place.
