New V2 Replacement retracts are supposed to be released to the vendors some time in mid to late June for those who had issues and requested replacements...as for them being in the New Planes already out there for sale? no word on that? my guess would be NO....untill they are all sold out.

So...any plane bought now and for a while I would think, will still have the older retracts in them

Since it was my maiden I play on the safe side. My first flight with the flight battery I went 6:30 minutes and then checked the battery. Each cell was at 3.90V so by that reading, I could have went probably another 3 minutes with not being at full bore. Let me say one thing the V8 Prop mod really makes it kick but does consume a little bit more of the battery due to the increase in amps. Now for the sound battery, after my second flight using the same battery was at 4.00V on the 3S 2200MAH. The sound system does not consume that much so I am sure I could get at least 4 flights on one battery. Not bad I say.

yep!!!!...been thinking of it for a while....actually was going to do it a while back when I was doing the landing light mod.....but the cost $$$ made me decide not to and cancel the order I had in a while back.

Actually talked to Brian on the phone about it a while back when he was putting his in

GOT,

Just n FYI if you hadn't followed the prop mod fully. You may need to chk n retighten the prop screw every once in awhile as they can tend to loosen a bit over time. They dont loosen a lot but enough for at least a 1/4 turn. Unless u put some CA then that'll help.

Thanks V8. I remeber that in a previous post and found a remedy for that so I dont have to check everytime. A little thread lock on the screw itself solved that but be really carefull not to get it on the plastic. Thread lock eats the plastic that the spinner is made from really bad. Just a tiny drop on the thread of the screw and that keeps it nice an tight. Thanks for the heads up though.

I guess then you would get a smaller sound battery and change one of those each flight too. To keep the weight down that bit more. 3S 800mAH or a bit lower.

In EDF's you just want the "jet combustion roar" sound. A CS12 will already provide the "turbine whoosh" part and is very quiet apart from that, so the jet roar sound should be fine. The fan noise is not really more than the big 4 blade props on these larger planes make.
But that is why I never got the Benedini.... "just" for a jet.

The $A is good value now.... so the Benedini is cheaper than ever. hehe. I can accept A$260 that it will cost for a whole setup. Hobby King hasn't had any for ages, and the price is not really better than direct from Thomas anyway.
The realism addition/sound is almost priceless. EDF's can inspire decent awe still just as they are, but an electric warbird.... not so awe inspiring, lol, so they really need the sound addition.
