The rotozip bits are nice, but an 1/8" dewalt(quality) drill bit works fine

Standard Dremel router bit here too. You can use the Dremel plunge router attachment if you want to make accurate shelf lids. I find that running it at the fastest speed is best as it cuts the foam rather than tears it.

Thanks for the input... can anyone tell me what the "standard dremel routing bit" is though? I got a black and decker RTX that is supposedly dremel-accessory-compatible, but I have no idea what to buy for it since typing "dremel router bit" brings up bits of all shapes and sizes.

like, which one of these is it? http://www.dremel.com/en-us/Attachme...me=Router+Bits

That's what I prefer too when making dust if I don't decide to melt my way through the foam and sniff fumes with a soldering gun.

The way this is designed it lifts the foam out of the way. Of cource i use it with the router depth gadge as well lets me cut a nice 2mm shelve to mount the coro on..

Then i hog out the center with the weller soldering gun..

best of both worlds

what amperage can the arc 28-47-1.5 pull on 4s with a 6x4 sport prop? I want to get some 40C 5000mah packs, so draw on the packs can be a maximum, I just want to know what the draw might be to get an esc large enough.
thanks.

Last time I tried, they pulled 72 amps static. I don't have eagletree or whatnot, but heard that the 1.5 and 6x4 sport setup drop to sixty-some amps in flight. If your 5000mAh packs are really 40C, they should be barely warm when they come down.

hawkz those numbers must be for a 28-48-2.

My testing is near identical too mopar's (+/- 1A) , and I severly melted the motor on flight 20 something! very burnt windings.

Personally I rekon the 48-1.5 4S 6x4sport setup sucks, its too amp hungry and the efficiency isnt very high at all, Id go with something else using higher voltage and less amps. I dont think you'll regret it in the long run.
