Tim ... Question... Currently I am running the recommended Torque setup on my other EF plane in the same size category. I am running the xoar 15x8 prop and now skylipos 40C packs. Should I go with the 15x6 prop instead or is it all based on my preference of the feel I am looking for ... Just curious.. I wasn't too excited with 15x8 on the 40c packs.

Hey Mark,

I would start with a Xoar 15x6, and fly it.. If the plane dos'nt pull hard enough, then prop up to a 15x7, and make sure to check your numbers..

To fix it you can just tweek the aileron to make it straight and then re-shrink the covering. I have had to do this with factory produced planes before as well.

Also, I think people tend to jump to the thrust angle or wing incidence as the cause of problems way to quickly. Things like warped surfaces, CG and linkage geometry have fixed many of my problems.
Everything is perfectly straight....I had it on my level table and each wing and aileron is perfectly straight, the elevator is straight, rudder is fine, fuse is straight, the motor does not look like it has as much right thrust as other models I measured it at just under 2 degrees, seems like it should have 2.5 or 3 at least. I strung the plane up and measured the incidence relation of the tail and wing together but I measured off of the canopy sill, which I found out this morning when I remeasured wasn't perfectly level.

Regardless of the issue, it still flew very well and I am more than happy with it, with a new model, there are always little things to work out and adjust as the collective Extreme Flight mind find the perfect setups

The 15x8 is a bit to much pitch for 30c and will Boost your numbers into the danger zone..

I'll have a few video clips up later, and you can see mine is just as fast as my Edge..


BTW.. Mine flew perfect right out of the box! No trim needed!!!
Thanks for the advice Tim, just got one ordered

Yeah when I was finishing mine and putting on the cowl, I noticed it had quite a bit of right thrust added in...at the time I thought too much! After flying it yesterday though, it literally needed 1 click of aileron and that was it. That was a first for me

The Torque will get warm with 15x8 on 6s 40C in this weather. In the summer, it will get a bit hot.

The Motrolfly 4315 runs a bitter cooler though and is 39g lighter.

Hey Vien,

What batteries and ESC are you flying on your Motrolfly setup?

Performance on Grass Fields

For those flying off of grass fields...

Any issues?

I'm contemplating going up to 2.5" wheels.

Not needed.. I run wheel pants(Edge&Extra), and have never had a problem, Even in thick grass!

I had the Motrolfly 4315-500 on the SC 57.

ICE 75, Xoar 15x8, Gens ACE 6s-2200 25C. Pretty light, but the 6s-2500 might work better.
