I went ahead and grabbed one too since the Kv was a little better than the 1300 for 2dog. Headsup ships pretty fast so I might have it before the P280.

Is the 26mm the dimension diagonal across the centerline of motor as in bolt hole pattern circle diameter or across the edges of the square pattern? Thanks - and is it center to center of bolt holes?

If you don't have an answer by the time I get home tonight I'll take mine off and measure it.

Ha! I had this in my cart for a Aerobat 250 that I'm ordering after Xmas. Forgot all about it. I'm sure it will work great on this plane! Thanks for the reminder

I've gone back and forth on that Aerobat for a long time now. It looks like it could be a sweet little relaxing lazy day flyer. I'll be curious as to your thoughts on it once you've flown it.

I'm looking forward to giving it a try. A nice little scale balsa that's relaxing and can sport fly too sounds great for summer nights! Kuczy has the Grasshopper(same size) and he loves it when the motor(Park 280) works

Change of plan! Futaba time ..;-)

After ordering two of the five channel Hitech (knock off) nano receivers for this size plane, I went and sold my radio, and bought a Futaba 8FG super.

Now I need to figure out what receiver to use for FASST.. Futaba has a five channel with four mini pico connectors, and one full-size connector for the ESC, but that receiver seems a bit heavy, even with the case removed.

The four channel indoor futaba RX seems like it will work? Futaba Lists it as 3.5 ounce with the case. I can probably cut that weight in half by removing the case.

Unfortunately I have to use a Y-connector for the ailerons, and full size servo connects.

is there a chance you've accidentally altered the timing on esc. I've had incorrect timing cause what I call 'choking' before.it's like pre detination.

3.5 ounces seems pretty heavy for a Rx.

Look like the case is probably 2oz, that ill be removing. If I can get it down under 1.5oz ill give it try, Or I'll buy one of those knock off postage stamps receivers from HK.

I'm sure the case comes off. That's the same receiver that the guys use for world class indoor f3a 33"depron planes, that come in under 4oz for the whole plane..with batt! I also need a few for my 33 inch indoor F3A plane's.. I was using stripped-down optima7's, and those are definitely heavier.

Even at 1.5oz that's still really heavy compared to the 2gram Spectrum. Do what you got to do I guess.....

I'm putting a hacker 1500kv on it, and swinging a larger prop also, power to weight ratio should balance out with my 30c Genace packs. I would rather get a smaller pack and still run a quality RX. If need be

This morning's Green Machine flight... before the rain came...


Edge540qq 7x5 prop (4 min 48 sec)



I think for next outing, I'll mount the cam on the plane instead of my sunglasses-- should be fun to see that drill-bit high roll-rate first-hand, no?
