This is my Bandit e-conversion, it ran last year on 16S but stupid me didn't notice the exhaust tube pulled in (and off the EDF shroud) because when initially hooked up, it ran backwards! I found out putting it away on Sunday (183 MPH was the top speed)...

Jeti Spin 200. Before you say "you mean 15S", no, I mean 16S ;-)

O.K. thanks........I get what you mean about 16s Jack.......you guys can do the high powered setups.......I stop at 12s...and in fact I will be downsizing to Habu sized planes from now on. I really like the little Habu 32.....running it on 6s but I think I might try a Arc on 8s and see what happens. I do need a new controller for 12s in my Hawk and is the reason I ask about the MGM controllers....the TMM 14063-3 X-SERIES is the one I am looking at.

I still use Jeti and Castle, the interest 6 or so months back in the newer "no name" high voltage ESC's seemed to die down, no idea if that is a reflection on the product or what but until I see wide use, I'll stick to what's proven. I love the Habu 32, I'd like to do one with Stu's 80mm setup for 8S...

If you do a Google map of the airport and select satellite image, you'll see a lot of grass on both sides of the runway. I suppose the "other" question is how smooth the grass is for belly landings. No gopher holes, big divots or straw grass, I hope.
