lol, nice! I don't have a huge budget for this, but what I do have I try to get the most out of, which is the reason I build my planes. It's way cheaper. Actually, I was just the lucky recipient of a Castle Creations Phoenix 35A ESC from Anixs on the free forums. The giveaway was for a Castle Creations Phoenix 25A, but he asked if I wanted a 35A instead!

Mine is soooo close to being able to KE. If you fly it in a circle around you it will do it just fine. I have not been able to get it to KE straight, even with SFG's.

I don't let myself spend a whole lot on RC. Which is why I have put the $1K I earned into savings. I did just place an order with HobbyK*ng, a lipo and a few other staples.

Ya know, with gas, you'll still have to charge lipos.

I use these.

They aren't as delicate as Lipos.
