What do you mean? I didn't say anything about using two lipos. I was just giving him options.

I like my planes to be perfectly neutral. I used to fly just a tad tail heavy but found out once I got to be a better pilot that you don't need all that extra tail authority that a tail heavy plane gives you. I think most will say slightly nose heavy. Everyone has different styles so you will get a few different answers.

What i'm saying is, can you use two lipo's and have a redundancy system so is for some reason one lipo's goes bad the other takes over

No, I won't ship it. Don't ask

Got a package today containing 5 boxes of Sav÷x awesomeness.
I noticed the arms that come with them don't appear they will be long enough, and there are no single-side arms included. What spline do they require, Hitec, Futaba?

Yeah. For spektrum users, you could use this.

For non spektrum users, you could use a smartfly board.

without regulator

with regulator

or you could use a wolverine switch.

They are futaba spline. You can use the dubro heavy duty arms or if you want more bling you could go with aluminum arms.

3dhs designs their planes around a slighty ahead of neutral CG, so when you go inverted, you should have to apply just a little down elevator to keep the plane flying perfectly level.

thats the only thing that sucks about Savox, they don't come with good arms. Futuba Dubro arms would work just fine.

Something I was happy to see, the boxes they come in will make excellent parts bins. I need more parts bins.

This is Great Info guys! Thanks ! And sorry yes I meant that I am running the 9755 TGS. I knew that I could run a lipo I just didn't really know what I all needed to order to be set up. I have only been in the hobby for 6 Month and this is my first Gas plane! I just want it to be set up as fail safe as i can possibly make it! So it sound like I should still run a NMTH Batter (which is seperate)to my ignition and then run 2Cell lipo for with a BEC for Servos and Receiver.

Or you use one of these http://www.tech-aero.net/ultra-ibec use one lipo for your ignition and receiver and also have an ignition cut off switch on your tx all ib one.
