Yes yours is a older one. I have a few of the 45amp versions. They work great, but Your going to want a seperate bec. On 5v, most servos will blowback due to the extra large control surfaces. I prefer a castle CC 10amp bec.

When I remaidened her, she was one click on the radio and flew like nothing had happened.

I flew it with another good 3D brand yesterday, but forgot just how great this airframe flys! Lovin it, thank you Extreme Flight!
That repair is about as good as it gets.

I want a red one but I'd feel like I'm cheating.

Hey guys, I'm being a little lazy here as I know this info is in the long thread. I'm getting serious abut building out my 60 Extra now that the bench has a line with a 78 extra, a 48" MXS that needs an Rx and a glider that needs a setup. So, with Torque motor and new stock ESC, planning on running 6S 3300s. What's the best prop? Looing to do Precision, freestyle, 3D and IMAC.
Thanks

I'm gonna sart my build very soon and hopefully maiden next weekend. I was wondering what spacers you guys running the 4315 were using... I was using 1/4" on the edge. I guess it would be the same right?

15x7 Xoar PJN is what you are going to want to go with.

Aeronaut Carbon CAM 15x7 if you don't mind a little more weight and a lot more stability and locked in performance. It isn't relative...Xoar props have nothing on these as long as your power setup can handle a little extra rotational weight.

Xoar might spool up faster but that doesn't mean a thing when this prop is pushing 1/3 more air.

Bryan ,, Yes both frames are the same. Cowl overlap is the same with 1/4" spacers.

Why not 15x8?

Ooops....I meant 15x6.

It is what is recommended on a 6s setup. Hope that didn't cause any issues.

With the V2 Torque guys were running 16x8 on 6s and should handle 15x8 no sweet. If its a v1 then I think your restricted to the smaller pitch too.

Go for it....I'm thinking old V1, everyone else running the v2 around here is still using the 15x6. I don't know why.

I use 16x8 Carbon Cam on 5s Hacker setup. I wouldn't trade it.

I use the 4315-480 with a 16x8 on 6s and wouldn't have it any other way.

as far as i know, 15x8 for v1 torque would be the same as 16x8 for v2 (in terms of can my motor take that propeller...)
