If your not crashing you are either extremely gifted like Joe Smith or you aren't flying low enough! Man up and get down lower!

Hello, I just picked up one of these and would like to get some opinions on the 103 vs 130. I know the 130 is stronger but how suffecient us the 103. Inwant a 42 or 51 slick and would need to use it there. Thanks

The 103 is already the overkill motor for the 40" Edge, and the 130 would be underpowered for a 51.

Get the 103g... it is also the suggested motor for the 42" Slick. If you are going to get a 51 down the road, you are looking at the Hacker A30-12XL or a Motrolfly equivalent.

Thanks that's what I was thinking. I have the 72g in the 41 edge and but the slick says more. I was also looking at the 48 edge which runs the 103. Now to pick up the 103g.

Mine already has unlimited vertical with the 72g, I can't even imaging a 130. With a 130 you'll probably get right roll at 1/4 throttle. Or has that issue been fully resolved? I haven't been watching this thread too closely.

I just use a piece of paper folded at the corner. Makes a nice 45. It gets it close enough to where I want it.

Uhhhh.... maybe you should seek help setting up your plane.


On the meter, point the arrow with the line on it at zero.

If you are doing the elevator, for example, stand the meter up and hold it flat across the horizontal stabilizer and elevator, with the center screw of the meter over the hinge.

Give up input to the elevator and see how many degrees of throw you are getting. Adjust radio endpoints accordingly.

That is just how I was doing it but wasn't 100% sure. Thanks for the buddy check! I have a Aeroworks throw meter but it's too big/weights too much to use on a foam plane...
