EPIC LT 120/Great Support from NitoPlanes!

Received my Epic about 3 weeks ago...every thing was in outstanding condition and showed very good craftsmanship EXCEPT for an uneven surface on the fuselage just aft of the rear window on one side. I called the Nitroplanes support line and explained the defect to Eric and, on a followup call, to another person who works for John. I must say that I found both to be very attentive and I was promised a replacement fuselage when the next shipment came in. I received the replacement fuse today, in perfect condition as promised. Thanks, Nitroplanes! You will receive more of my RC purchases.

Epic LT 120 Build

Finally started the actual build on this bird....and thanks to ScaleFan for his input!

As I indicated earlier, NitroPlanes has either changed from the original source of this model, or the factory has made changes from the one that is pictured on the NP website. (different nose gear, canopy, wingtips and decals, NO main gear wheel covers, etc.)

You will note that I have removed the "scribed" cut out for retracts even though the fixed nose gear is in place, as I am awaiting the availability of the retract system.

I will attempt to atttach photos to help others.

Nice, Marvin! How does the performance of the Nitro 110 compare to that of the E-Flite 110 that you used a few months ago?

Also, how many cells are you using?
Thanks,
Gary

Mine will use my E-Flite 110, a pair of X-Cite 30/60C's-4800mAh and a CC 80HV. Won't be quite as fast as yours, but should do well.

I'll post some more photos of interior details in a few days to give others some ideas.
Still waiting for another 2.4Ghz receiver before I maiden. Too darn hot here in Alabama to spend much time at the field!

It sounds like we have the same taste in planes - I keep going from post to post on the planes I'm building and you're always one step ahead of me...

What battery combination are you running on this one with the 110.

And what's next on your build list...

Hi, i have just ordered one Epic LT-120 to add to my hangar.

I need to select a motor for it (converting to electric), i was thinking of the E-FLITE 110. How do you like it with this model? Does it handle 8S?

Also would like some suggestions for the ESC... Thanks!
