What's the white goopy glue thats used to hold the receiver board in place? I figure to replace the board I can pry it loose from the body, but I'm wondering what sort of glue I should use to keep my new board in place (assuming it's on it's way). It looks like Elmers white or Gorilla glue?

Neither, It's basically a white silicone. The best replacement as per HH employees and my personal experience is automotive RTV.

They have told me on two occasions to use bath and tile caulk.

OCP issue on beast 3d w 3000kv??

so the OCP issue with some geebee's is with the 3000kv motor on 2s,
and the beast has the same brick as geebee.

so, seems like there would be OCP issues with 3000kv motor on 2s or 3s in beast.

if not the case, why ?

I didn't have various caulks or RTV mentioned above--but hot glue gun worked. low temp hot glue probably better---and caulk probably better still---no stringys to get on servos.

The Gee Bee's 5.25x3.5 prop is the problem - not the brick. There are no OCP issues with the 5030 prop on 2s.

how odd?! ok, well at least that's easy enough to come by at the hardware store... I assume they use this as it has some give to absorb vibrations?

Thanks for the info guys.

RC do you need to do anything to the brick for 3s....or just "plug em in and fly" ?

bonnie,

The stock B3D brick seems to have enough safety features that 3S isn't a problem.
Plug-n-fly!
The only change I've made on mine is the prop.
Keep her light.
The 3S power to weight ratio is a dream!

Joel says it best...

"On 3s, the Beast 3D is about as close possible to being the perfect aircraft! A flight-envelope so broad that it nearly defies common sense. A plane that's just as happy flying along at 5 MPH as it is screaming across the sky at 50 MPH. A 2-oz plane that can fly so smoothly that it looks nearly full-scale - yet can also do maneuvers so abrupt & so extreme that they nearly defy the rules of flight. A plane that is equally at home at the gym, in the backyard, or at the club field. A plane that is an absolute dream to fly in calm conditions, yet has the ability to make her pilot laugh out loud in a 25 MPH wind. A plane that feels like an extension of thought - much like how a well-built hand-tool "disappears" from hand & becomes an extension of one's thoughts. One does not think about flying the Beast 3D. It just happens. Much like walking.

This is the plane that nearly every RC pilot dreams about - although they may not know her face, or her name.

In my 28+ years of flying RC, I have yet to fly anything in any scale that even comes close!"

Thanks again RC,

KF,

Good to hear that they arrived quickly.

I threw in a 2S pack the other day and said, 'never again!'

Did the V1/5043 mod today. Like the vertical performance. Top end speed didn't seem that much faster than V2/5030. Love the silence! No longer embarrassed about all the buzzing when people are at the park trying to enjoy their morning.

Everything fit together fine, spinner/backplate/5043 prop. Reading previous posts I was under the impression I would need mods to make it all fit.

What batteries you using??? There should be a HUGE difference between these setups. Or maybe you're at high altitude....

2300kv 5043 with 240 2s hyperion is great for high altitude--7,000'
but I have never flown lower than this---so I can't compare

I'm thinking that the 3000Kv/5030 combo on 3s aught to fix that!

3s 180 nanotech decent ?

sure, 3s hyperions babblebatt are superior and standard hyperion very good

but are the 3s 180 nanotech's decent? I know the 2s 180 nanotechs are pretty good--much better than eflite. $6.24 is my kind of price range if they are decent-- $13+ for hyperions not so much.

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...Lipo_Pack.html


and then perhaps I could use one of these adapters
are these both suitable for 3s also ?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-JST-E-Flit..._qi=RTM1084479

also,
why do 3s stock 120 or 180 hyperions with a jst not have a balance tap?

There was a popular belief that these small packs didn't need balancing!

I have some 2S 180 Nanos without balance taps which I'm not keen on using...
I think (correct me if I'm wrong here RC!) that RCBabbel was going to make his 3S without taps to save weight but we all talked him round
