Scott says the CC140HV works well with the GR70. As soon as I can get one I'll let you know.

I think this should be one of the "unofficial" events/activities planned for SEFF. Sure would be fun to watch!

Had one on Sunday with a gasser 33% Edge, it wasn't even fair. Well, I made it as fair as possible, he was hovering about 50' or so, I was about 15-20' he said go and I blasted past him in a few secs. I never even hit full throttle.

Methinks it's manufacturing process and or manufacturing location. Part of the details in the ICE packet is that some of it may be assembled in China now... they used to only say that only some components were sourced in China too keep their "made in USA" label on the packet, there's no such label on the ICE packet.

vertical drag racing... isn't smaller an advantage to get better power to weight?...

Here's a relatively simple way to install the Neu setup for those interested. Basically, just drill / enlarge the hole to allow the motor to fit (but not too large as to allow you to still drill the four supporting hole.
Josh are you running the same set up as Mike? If so are you getting the same numbers?

Thanks

@Birdie

That's not my plane, that's Andy's. He's thinking about taking a new one to BEST, but I see you ain't going to that

The vid doesn't really do it justice, that's a big plane...like 70 less squares than my 87" SHP. Out of the whole last weekend, nobody took any other vid of it except a little night flying.

He wants one of these 70" Slicks, hopefully he'll get one this weekend.

I may switch to different servos later but for now the 5625's work decent. I'm used to the 5955's in my SHP and there is NO comparison between the two..of course there shouldnt be.

I was going with the HS5625MG Digital's also and they don't center very well?
I am switching mine out for the HS985mg's. They should be here monday and the others will go back. I will have to wait to maiden it anyway as the weather is gonna be nasty.
