I would find a ~2000 KV pusher setup and have something fun and not insanely amp hungry
You mean Stock "C" right?

I'd agree with you there but from his description he already has a "brushed" motor EDF Stryker now and would like to try this motor in it. For that setup, it should definitely do better than the brushed motor.

I mostly fly in soccer fields. Theres one up in Wake Forest and another next to the place that I work... There's 2 clubs (RDRC and RAMS RC) but both are over 10 miles away from my house so I haven't joined a club yet. I do visit them from time to time...

Where do you fly?

Hi Guys,

Killed my longtail Stryker on Wednesday coming out of a vertical dive inverted and pulling the elevator the wrong way

Brainfade I guess! Still, have a new airframe ready to go in my garage, and all the electronics survived O.K.

On to the next one

Where do you fly?

I am in the southern side of the city, so I fly at SWAMPS and also at DIX field near downtown. I have been to the RDRC field, but never been to Rams yet.

I did a test on some scrap foam that I cut off my Stryker B. I used some OSH yellow spray paint. Really, put it on. No ill effects. Once the winds die down, I'm going to paint my stryker with it.

It's Weight is: 4.6oz (133g)
there are other better choices out there at that weight
such as this one if you dont mind some amps, i have personally pushed 42 amps and 630 watts through this one
http://www.unitedhobbies.com/unitedh...idProduct=5254

or this one if you do mind them
http://www.unitedhobbies.com/unitedh...idProduct=5255

They both are spectacular performers on 3s and especially 4s
