Hey Bob, Whats you AUW??? I picked one up today! I'm thinking I will stick two of the old Mako motors in it with two 2100's... Need to know AUW with BATTS... Never mind I found what I was looking for. looks like 52oz. I guess the Old Mako motors will not work, I want over 1:1
Thanks,
Chris

Hi guys,

I agree with everything being said. As mentioned previously, I had planned on adding a BEC and also cutting cooling holes for the ESC's but decided to postpone 'till later because I had flown the same set up with my friend's plane twice without any problems. Lesson learned; don't postpone what you know must be done to the next flight or it may be your last flight...

As far as the load on the BEC's, according to HH, the 2 BEC's can share the load and supply enough current to power 4 micro servo's each without failure. They do mention that they should be mounted to provide cooling air if the BEC is being used under such loads.

I'll be disconnecting the BEC's and using a separate uBEC for the next go-around...

I put a lite metal bracket around the front gear and screwed it to the wood part that you mount the servo on. No more bending of the gear on take off's or landings from a grass runway. Sure worked for me.

the airliner is in E-fite paint but not their product.... The Airliner is produced by Mth http://www.mth.com.tw/ in Taiwan for E-flite and Jamara in Germany.

But due to the popularity of the kit, I bet it has sold well, and good results often ends up n new good products so wee can hope but not for a caravelle the naccelles are way too small...

Looks like a knock off of the current Delta Air Lines 777 paint job.

Yep and if you look at the center of the wing you will see SFM logo mark in the foam.
