I used 330ml fuji on my 30cc gassers. Plenty of flight time. Easily over 15 minutes once the motor is broke in.

I would like to know what are my motor choices sense the Hacker A60-6XS is sold out and the Motrolfly 5320 is sold out. I have a TP 3850 4s that I run in my 59" slick. I guess I could run 2 of these for a 8s setup I have never done this before but it may be more cost effective. What would be the best setup for me?

The Hacker A60-5S (Scroll down) is a very good motor for this plane on 8S. This what I have in mine, and in point of fact I just pulled my Hacker A50-14L out of my 72" Extra to put the same motor in it. It does show in stock at this time.

And....as the Edge has a tendency to come out tail heavy, the extra weight of going 8S will also help to balance it....

That seems like a good size, I just don't want to use an 8oz.

20x8-20x10. it looks like. 295 kv. Id say throw a 20x8
The prop torque should not be too bad and she will wind up pretty good i bet.

I have a A60-5S for sale. I can also package in a ICE 100 and the Mejzlik prop I was using.

What kind of flight time were you getting on the 5300mah batteries? I know it was on a different plane than the Edge.

I barely got to fly it on the 5300s before we converted it to a gasser. I honestly can't say. I was flying it on weaker batteries. At this point I am kind of not happy with the decision to not keep the power system on the model as I never got it dialed in well as I had gotten frustrated. I got a motor from the first batch, and the only advice Aero-Model gave me was to buy Thunder Power batteries. I went all the way up to a Xoar 22x10 to get the watts out of the model and my batteries could not handle this much load. By the time I got the 5300s in, the weather had shut down the flying season. In the spring a series of events led the plane to being put back to a gasser.

The reason I am selling the setup at this point is that I have realized that I want to stick to a single battery setup as all the strapping, charging, etc leads to less enjoyment for me. In this size I now have 3 gassers and 1 electric.
