Electric... I'm a little worried about the setup though.. I've already got the motor, esc, and batts for a 6s setup but I think it might be a bit on the heavy side?

This is what I've got:

AXI 5320/18 380kv (at 494g.)
CC ICE 100
CC Bec PRO
Gens Ace 30c 6s 5300 (750g.)
Xoar 20x8

and I'd like to run the HS-7985s in it. I've been cross checking the EF 70" Extra 300 forum and this motor/esc/prop setup is supposed to give solid power for THAT airframe, but 6s setups are supposed to be light and I'm not sure if I've defeated the purpose with this?? I'd love to use the stuff I've already got if I can...

Looks like the setup will work only thing I would change is the prop adapter... Do they have a option for a bolt on adapter? Should produce plenty of power and AXI makes a good quality motor. Plane does awesome with the heavier setup. I've 3Ded 1070g of battery with my motor that weighs about what yours does... Not ideal but it did fine.

That's reassuring, thanks. Someone mentioned getting this for the AXI...

Is that what you're talking about? Should take it down from a 12mm to 8mm shaft

I mentioned that.... I think Bryan was thinking the motor uses a collet type prop adapter, (which it can), but not used in this instance....

Looks like the perfect 6 cell setup if you ask me.

The picture that in saw of the motor showed the collet style, not the bolt on prop adapter.

Ellzy... That is what I was talking about. Does the motor come with a X mount or do you need to buy that separately too.

I suggest you go ahead and use what you've got, especially if it's already used and not returnable. If you don't like the setup, after maybe trying a different prop or two, upgrading to a different motor should be easy. I have the same setup as you have listed, except I have the Hacker A60 and had the A50 12L and thought those were both fine for my flying style, although the A60 with an APC 20x13 is a bit faster.

In talking on the phone to one of our more aggressive fliers (who shall go un-named), he mentioned that he has torn the sides out of his 71" Slick a few times, due to where the wing bolt goes through not being very strong. So in an effort to possibly prevent this from happening on my plane, I made up some braces to brace this area....here is what I did....
The length is 4.5" the width 1.75. There is a piece of 1/32" ply to make up for the difference in thickness at the top, which is 1/4" from top to bottom. The hole .3125" and is 1.6875" down from the top, and centered on the width.

That looks like great setup. I flew that Axi in a 3dhs 72" extra on a 6 cell TP 5000 pack.
Plenty of vertical. I flew that combo for 2 months until a friend talked me out of the plane for his DLE 30 gas motor. You wil be very happy with the Axi 5320-18 in the slick.

Wow Steve that's awesome!!!!! l am going to copy that if you don't mind. We have 3 71 slicks at our field right now that could use that.

In retrospect, I wish I had done them a bit different, and may redo them,(just because I'm a bit picky about some things), but they will certainly work like that...
