but on a serious note...what did you find the difference (if any) was? Did you feel like the q80 had more power with the same flight time, it was smooth, or anythign at all? considering a 50cc electric in the near future

I have the 87" Extra SHP on 12s with the recommended Hacker motor. For longer flight times I'm thinking about converting it to gas with a DA 60 or DA 70. What is your recommendation for an engine for the 87" SHP?

That's going to take more than 30 minutes to put back together. Sorry about that.

Wow, folks weren't kidding about this bird being a tail heavy build. I have the 4315-714 (with 1/2" spacers), ICE 100 (on the motor box), and the 4S battery is almost completely under the cowling at 3.75" CG.

I hate to add dead weight, but I need to access the battery better for strapping down. I rather add weight than eject a battery.

Woah, sorry to see that Luv3D! It hurts to see a good plane down

Out of curiosity what caused it to crash?

Thanks
