Got to maiden my 60" yesterday and all I can say is WOW! Took 2 clicks of elevator to fly hands off, and no coupling for knife edge passes. I'm thinking about leaving it with the stock servo arms and flying it more sport than 3d for now, as the 48 Extra fills that slot very nicely. I can always step it up later though!

Well... Off to recharge batteries so that I can fly on!

The kid flew his extra about 10 times yesterday and that plane is just amazing. Think I will build the 60" Edge after Christmas for myself

I am running the combo set up and I did swicth from a 15x6 APC to a 15x7 falcon wood prop and it is a match made in heaven. Rockets out of a hover and is blazing fast at WOT

Where did you get your 15x7 falcon wood prop? Do you think a Xoar 15x7 wood prop will also rocket out of hover and be blazing fast at WOT?

Will a 30C 6S pack have enough output for the Torque setup? Would a higher C rating make a difference?

Unfortunately, you can only double the voltage or mah, not both. So your two 1300mah 3S can be a 2650 mah 3S or a 1300 mah 6S. You would need two 2650 3S's to run 2650 6S.

With that setup (2600mah) you'll be lucky to get 4mins of flying, and you actully won't the extra weight.. If you build these 60" birds to light, they don't stick a move or carry momentum as well..

The blue turingy 6s 3300 30c packs are only $46.00 each from HK USA warehouse($6.00 to ship/3day delivery), and they work great!
