neiloneil,

Tell the guys about your battery packs, ESC specs, BEC, charger limits such as (3S), budget, and any future goals, etc....

You should get better answers that away.

Mode 2 is throttle on the left and ale/ele on the right (USA). Mode 1 is opposite (Europe.)

If you cant answer my question we,I or they will not help you b/c it is a waste of our time...

setups can be had for $30-$160 If you cant tell us your budjet we cant be sure which way to point you.

Here's the most popular setup that is flying at my field:

Motor- Eflight Series 6 2700kv
ESC- 60A+
Prop- APCe 6x5.5
Pack- 3S-2200

This setup is really fast! But it pulls around 60A WOT on a 3S pack...that's a bit too much for me.

Here's my setup:

Motor- ARC 28-47-2
ESC- Align 35A
Prop- APC 6x4 sport
Pack- Zippy-R 4S-2200

Mine is fast too...it's a bit heavier due to the motor and extra cell. But it's a lot easier on the pack. It pulls around 40-45A WOT.
I can fly for 9mins with throttle management.
