I thought it was only good for "in-stock" airframes?

one spot on the webpage says it takes 1000mah-1600mah 3 cells.
but in the description it says they recommend at least a 1200mah battery. I have a 1300mah 30c, think that will work ok with the 72g Omega?

and....wouldnt it still work on a 1800mah? maybe not the BEST performance, but should be ok I would think....

I use 3S 1300 30C packs with my 72 Omega and it's great but I have to land at about 4:30. I won't be using anything bigger than that in mine.

Are you going to fly the Omega 72 in your 40"? I'm debating about ordering a 103 with my 40" for my 42". No one's wanting to buy it, so I may just keep it

I think some experimentation will be needed before I settle on a motor. I flew the prototype with a 72 Omega and 3S 1550s and I just can't imagine it needing anything more than that. However... the Motrolfly 2810-1200 would be pure insanity in this plane. I like the sound of that!

Did you use it once already? If it is like the discounts in the past you can only use it once.

I am flying my prototype 40" Edge on the 72g Omega, and I must say it is not lacking in power. It is plenty for my tastes. A 103g Omega would just be ballistic, and would allow for some crazy maneuvers.

Either way, both motors will power the airplane very well.
