Google is your friend! Just search for 'multiplex easystar manual' and it'll come top of the searchresult. Sorry, I can't post the link from my phone.

If you purchased the kit why didn't you get the manual?

EasyStar II manual available here (no. 10 on list):
http://www.multiplex-rc.de/en/servic...s/manuals.html

EasyStar II thread here:

Verid's illustrated build here:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...6&postcount=94
plus various posts (some mine!) dotted throughout the thread.

Suggest you use the 'Search this thread' utilitiy for motor options - here in the EU most are using either the MPX power set (which I don't think MPX/Hitec USA are importing), or a 1020kV outrunner from GiantCod (now GiantShark).

Because it looks like he has 'decided on' an EZII, but he doesn't actually say he's bought it yet. He's trying to get in front of the game.

That's odd, a .pdf file of the manual came top of the results when I searched, with several other links following. Anyway, you've got a direct link now in Colonel Blink's post

2200kv brushless inrunner. A 2835 size fits perfectly into the motor pod.

A 30 to 35 amp ESC capable of 3s battery

A 3s, 2200mah, 20c to 30c lipo battery.

Go to the "foamie kit" forum and look for "Everything you ever wanted to know about the EZ and more"

It's a wealth of info.

I think that is for the MkI EasyStar - the EZII takes an 1100kV outrunner.
