My last one lawn darted... I got in on the pre-order of the very first batch ever and it had the first run aluminum wing bolts. It is small so I left it put together all the time, and well, um, I kinda forgot to check my bolts. Wing came off.

That Buck Huck 1.5 was the first plane I ever touched the tail in a hover, drug the rudder in a inverted harrier, and did HAKE so low it about scraped. It taught me so much, and I loved it... so after a break I decided to get a new one. I think I have some pics of the old one in my Blog.....
Awesome! I love my 57" Extra with my Motrofly 4315-714 too!!

What Motrolfly is best for the Buck 1.5? I have an Ω130 but I think I will sell it.... for 3S and a 14x7.

Looks like the 2820-950 3s Lipo Max 800 W 13x6.5 to 14x7 on 3s. 152gm though. Might want to rethink that.

Nothing wrong with the O130. Sweetness!

Just a Hilbilly thinkin.

I went 2820-950... we will see if the weight is an issue. I am probably going to switch from APC to Xoar and they seem lighter anyway.

Use the finger method and balance per the online instruction manual. This will be the forward COG and move back from there by flying the plane...

also what set-ups are you guys using??

I have the Omega 130g and a 60A ESC. Im using the 3s 2650mah packs because I mostly fly sport. So A good combination of speed/run time is what im after. Also, I know the recommended is a 14x7, but I might have alot of prop strikes with that. So what 13inch should I get?

Thanks

I know you have a O130 laying around. Why mess with perfection. Yes, the xoar is the perfect choice for this setup. On the O130 too.

You have the proper prop. Maybe learn to land better? JMO? To answer your question: 13x6.5

Perhaps something is wrong your rudder setup. The Edge is a KE BEAST!!!

big_poppa4904 if you are only flying sport/aerobatic then a 13x8 will work pretty nicely too. I did about 10 flights with one and saw a decent increase in speed/runtime.

cool. I already have a 13x8 laying around. So I should get good run times with that too??

Also, sending out another request for a pic of the location of a 2650mah lipo. I already know that I can use the "balance method" per the instructions, but im not good at the finger tip trick and I dont have a CG machine. So if you got the same motor and a 2650mah 3s, please post a pic of the location of that pack. Thanks
