Should this be enough for a het 2W 4,7x4,7 ?

HET 2W (4750kV) on 3S with a 4.75x4.75 is gonna draw wicked high amps, well over 70.

4.1x4.1 would be a better idea

Well I havent ordered any ESC yet, will figure out more before I order anything.

Jackosmeister: I`m planning on runing it on 4,1x4,1. But I would like to have the opertunity to put on a 4,7x4,7 aswell, if needed

Say a system is pulling 60 amp on the ground holding it, how munch will it pull in the air?

The CC ice i what I really wanted, but you only get them in 50 ore 75. 60 is a HV, so thats to munch. Maybe I just try to squeese in a 75 and use the built in bec in that one... I dont now anymore

my thoughts exactly. When I got mine I thought it would be like fitting four square pegs in one round hole. I finally got it squared away but I have to basically take everything out of the plane in order to remove the battery. Still, a joy to fly, I have a mild setup right now with 2700KV motor and a 4.7 X 4.7 Graupner CAM but soon I'm going to upgrade to the ARC.

I know I have asked before but I am a mess.....


What are some JR servos that are good for 150mph+ that are roughly the same size as HS-55's?? They are for a tight fit in my VIP and the HS-55's fit perfectly, any bigger and I will have to cut Fiberglass.


Thank you in Advance.

Because there are no Hi-Tec's that fit the bill. I would like to keep it Spektrum/Jr/Hi-tec

What battery are you using? Because I have been fiddeling around with the Voodoo for some hours now, and it seems like I have to order a Hyperion 1800mah like jackosmeister uses. Made a templet out of elepor like the sice of the Hyperion battery... seems great Have to put it in the front I think, and then put the ESC behind the battery. And also put one of the servoes at the back of the wing. Havent start gluing yet, because there is always something you forget, and then it could bee to late. Have to think this one true Hoping to get the battery next week..
