4 x HiTech 7955-TG’s
Castle Ice 100 ESC
Hyperion 6s 5000
Castle Ice BEC pro with Rx Pack (Thunder Power 2s 1350mAh 25C)
Spektrum AR7010 Rx
on 6s there are really 4 main motors that everyone seems to be going with. a light setup would be something like the motrolfly 4325-380 (19x10 prop on 6s) or the hacker a50-12L (19x10 or 20x10 prop). for a heavier but a bit more powerful setup the two main motors are the motrolfly 4330 (or the 5320, but recent reviews of the 4330 are very positive) or the hacker a60-6xs. cant really go wrong with any of those setups, but on the 71 slick that is lighter and easier to balance, i highly recommend the lighter motors. the plane just flies awesome when it is kept light and either of those motors will provide more than ample power.
