Yes it will work. You only need a 60 on the Torque setup but a 100 will cover it just fine.

Great! Thanks Chris, I thought it might be adding too much weight...
Maybe I'll get the budget cleared from my wife to get the ESC/Motor combination as well - Just checking all my options...
Thanks and Happy New Year!

The Hitec HS-5245MG's are a good digital servo, you can save a few bucks by going with the HS225MG analog version.

I would agree with this. I used 5245's on my kids and will use them on mine but we have 225"s in the previous generation 58" EF Extra and they are rock solid. Cheap too My kid beats the snot out of that plane (it has a saito 82) and has never had an issue.

I just ordered mine... Finally... - I can't wait!!!

Thanks for the building Videos Tim - those are really helpful!

I have a question about the ESC mounting though - I usually use industrial strength velcro on about anything http://www.lowes.com/pd_184582-388-9...ductId=1052627 (around $8) - Do you think it would work on the ESC so I get more air flowing on the surface without covering that with a velcro band?

I guess that's a typical trial and error situation right?

Happy Flying!

Andreas

Thanks! I'm glad they help!

In the past I tried the Velcro method with smaller planes, and the heat eventually separated the Velcro from the ESC. Theres also a ton of G's on these 60" planes, when you fly them hard! so I've learned to strap everything down..

On the 60" Extra and Edge, I used 2 zip-ties to hold it down. Works great, and doesn't act as an insulation.

Ordered mine this morning. Anyone know if these still come with wing bags? I forgot to ask.

I usually use a piece of Velcrow on the back but also a tie strap around the wires going in and wires goi g out of the esc. I think castle recommends this versus wrapping the strap around the body of the esc.
