I love the gens ace and it seems hoppypartz is all sold out of 50c and higher batts.

Anyone have any problems with 25c 4000's since they are the only ones available ?
Thats all I've run in my 70 Slick and 74 Edge No problems!

I fly out by Red Rock Canyon at the Las Vegas Soaring Club field, but since I got an 89" Slick gasser yesterday, I'm going to have to drive over to Bennett field if I'm going to fly it here before I leave town in September!

Nice Gyro, yeah bennet field is a nice field.

i see guys flying 6S and 8S

whats the difference guys with:

6S a50-12L

8S a50-14L

is the 8S setup necessarily more punch and power? i hate buying two 4S batts to make 8S

i like the fact you can run 6S 5000 which is cheaper to buy, but was wondering if 6S is worth it?

8s is more efficient,meaning you can get the same power as 6s but with less amps/heat. You also can get more power from 8s if you give up the less amps lol..hope i didn't confuse you..This plane is def worth it on 6s if thats how you want to power it. I had one on 6 and loved it.i have one now on 8 and love it. So either way it will rock.

Both systems fly this plane exceptionally well.

What most people do is match up the power system that is most suited to what they have/use.

For instance, if you have a 59" Slick (or others) on 4s and several 4000mah batteries for it, you might prefer the 8s set-up and use your batteries for both.

If you have other aircraft, ie T-rex 550/600, Osiris, Velox etc. as I do, on 6s, you might want to go that route to use the batteries you already have.

I'm using the A50-12L, had it on 6s and flew great with a Xoar 20X10, I changed it to 8 s with the Xoar 18X8 and I love it even more it's fast and punchy, it's really a preference a smaller prop lest air on the controls play more with the throttle.For the bat. I bought some 2s and couple them with my 6s and works great.

Ice 100


I have one of the newer (enclosed) Ice 100's that I have never used. I took of the tabs to try and fit it in a fuse and that is it.

Just thought I would see if anyone was interested here first.

I believe it is the same as the 74" Edge, right at 22mm...
