Trailing Edge

Yes that picture did seem to clear up the issue. I could not see exactly how the crutch was supposed to attach. Now I can see that.

I apologize for my last post

I still think the Slow Stick X is an excellent plane.

Just received my SSX wing kit yesterday, Looked over the balsa and laser cutting, and all I can say is every manufacturer should use this as an example of how to put a kit on the market. Reading through the instructions, watching the construction video's, and am highly impressed.
Photos when I can find time to get started!

motors

Hello all, new user here with a beautiful new SSX ARF on the workbench.

I've sifted through most of the SSX build thread, there are TONS of great info on this incredible airplane!

But my head is spinning with respect to motors. The instructions recommend the BP A2212-13, but I've seen numerous others mentioned in here such as the Hacker A20-22L, the axi 2217/16, and the E-flite Park 450. Based on the specs, it looks like the A2212-13 is a little lower powered than the others, but I've flown the RealFlight model w/ the A2212-13 and it seems to perform just fine.

I'm getting some other E-flite items so I'm leaning towards the Park 450 while I'm at it. Is this a good choice? I don't want to set any speed records, but I want to be able to climb when necessary.

If I had a choice, I would use the BP 2212-13. It is cheaper and I get longer flights than with the park 450 with plenty of vertical power. Plus the E-flite motor is more than twice the price.

I am using the 2830-09 from Heads Up RC, it is a 400 class 850kv and for $18.95 it is hard to beat! It comes with a prop adapter and X mount to boot! Here is the link,

Terrific, another candidate motor. You're not helping!

I've got options paralysis like I've never had it before. I think I'm going to go with Mr. Karpy's OEM recommendation at least initially. I plan to use the Castle Creations 36A controller to allow for future upgrades though.

+2. I don't have one on my SSX, but I put one on my EPP SR-71, and it makes incredible thrust for the amps it draws.
