Screw a bolt into the blind nut and then heat the bolt with a soldering iron or soldering gun, then tap the bolt with a mallet to break the blind nut loose.

If there are donuts, then once the blind nuts are out, you can use Golden West Super Solvent to remove the donuts....

That's the stuff i used...i just was at the end of my bottle and didn't have enough i guess. Oh well, i'll get it worked out. The motor looks sweet! I'm excited to get it mounted. I should be flying the plane by next week and hopefully i can get some video.

So I'm currently using Xoar props on my Slick. Should I be considering something else? I like the Xoars but I'm open to trying other props if there's a benefit.

I'm also running a pull/pull setup and my batteries are pretty far back but not on the wing tube by a long shot. I'm close to the middle to back third of the tray. Mine is perfectly neutral with zero coupling. I didn't even need an ounce of trim. Love it!

They are a bit pricy and I don't even know how they will do on a electric motor. The props are epoxy foam filled... they say they are light but don't give a weight.

Battery Plugs


Are Deans plugs up to the task for these larger planes? Just got some new Nano-techs and wondering if I should cut the plugs and solder on some deans or change the esc to the bullet style.

Thanks!

Tower sells them too. I have a 20X10 on a Hacker A60-5S running 8S....they are gas props...

Deans are good for 100 amps.

Some are raving about the Savox 1258TG, which is the same servo as the Align 610 . Align has come out with DS615 that they are using to replace the 610s in there newer kits, which are slightly faster and stronger at a cheaper price. I think the reason for the price difference for the 615 is it has hardened high strength super alloy gears instead of the titanium alloy gears. I have the 610s in my 600 pro hell and they are super fast. I'm still undecided.

Steve, how did the prop perform on the hacker?

Edit: Ok I have narrowed it down to two servos...
Savox SC-1258MG $385 for 4 shipped
Hitec HS-7945SH $310 for 4 shipped.
Both spec out good... I use the HS-7245HV in my 60" plane and love them, they have a speed of .11sec. The 7954s have a speed of .12sec and are slightly more torquey then the .11sec Savox servos. Both are high volt. What do you guys think? Any bad experience with either? I don't know how dependable the Savox servos are. Which is why I am leaning towards the cheaper Hitecs but wish they offered a slightly faster servo which I would sacrifice a little torque for the same price. The ones they offer are TGs and $540 for 4... way to much. Also, been using Hitecs with success for years and have had great experience with their CS... so for me that is a plus

Deans are fine
Anderson power poles are fine
EC5's are fine
bullets are fine

Whatever you're comfortable with

I love my APP's! I just crimped my CC BEC Pro right in there with the ESC battery leads and it works like a champ.

APP's also make it very easy to run an 8s setup with 2 4s batteries.

If you suck at soldering like I do then APP's are a beautiful thing!

I literally only have a few minute flying time on my Edge.....the day it was maidened, it was very windy, and I just didn't want to risk the plane. So, I got a basic trim on it and landed..... And the last time I was going to take it out, I got rained out. That said, it seemed to have plenty of power for my style of flying (mostly sport, some 3D)...I may try to take the plane out on Monday as it is supposed to be nice then...

I may certainly be wrong, but I could have sworn I read the Savox were only good for 6 volt... .

I think TheKM tried some on 7v or so and one smoked. I run my ds610 at 6v. they are plenty fast at that voltage. And strong.

Ok, so...On 6s w/ 19x10 prop...

Motrolfly 4325-380kv and Ice 100

or

Motrolfly 4330-400kv and Hobbywing platinum 150a esc or ZTW 120a esc?

If you say option number 2, do you think the hobbywing esc will work good? I'm using their 40a platinum esc and it works good.
