Biggest race of the season is now just a few days away!

F5B National Title is on the line, plus the US Team Selection and our new class, The Hotliner Championship.

I'll start a thread for post and pics and videos of the weekend, so hopefully some of the fun can be sent out across the net for all to share.

See you soon!

Seems like a good starter...

Here are the latest settings that seem to be working nicely after 5 test flights with 6S.

This is version 3.20. I have not had good results with earlier software versions.

I no longer use this esc for F5B, but some have had great success.

Hope this helps,

From SUSA: The Carbon Banana is our fastest 60" glider. Considerably beefier than the standard glass Banana, the all Carbon version exhibits phenomenal precision and stability in the air. It's ability to cut through choppy air is uncanny, and extremely rewarding. The Carbon Banana uses the MG06 airfoil from Marcel Guwang, also used on the F3F record holding Miraj 30.80 the Pike Brio, and our own Trinity. This plan form and airfoil gives the Banana great handling and is very smooth with excellent ?grip? in the turns. This plane will out accelerate of our other 60" planes. Period.

The Carbon Banana is an absolute pleasure to fly. It feels much "larger" in the air, yet remains very nimble. It almost defies description in it's handling. Adjectives such as "smooth", "fast", "liquid", "oiled", "rush", "fantastic", "breathtaking" and so forth are always heard when a pilot is first given the transmitter. Frequently followed by, "No way, I'm keeping it!", or, "Come on, just a bit longer, pleaassee?" when we try to retrieve our transmitter from the now manically possessive guest pilots...Continue Reading
