I'm switching everything over to EC3's for 12AWG or less. Rated for 60A, easy to pull apart and super easy to solder. EC5's the 10AWG stuff.

I can't get the shipping estimate function to work. Can someone try it and tell me what it would be to do UPS ground to 77845 for the 57" SC?

I use short 6" servo extensions from the receiver, that allows quick disconnect from aileron servos and the extensions. that way you arent constantly plugging/unplugging fron the receiver port. Been doing it that way for as long as I can remember. no issues yet.

+1. I tie a short extension to the servo wire with 30lb braided fishing line. If you're not doing any spoileron/flaperon mixing then you can use one of those snap on keeper doohickies on one side of a y-harness.

The ones from "Sonic-Tronics" are better, they don't bend/stress the wires...

Ben (BluCore),

It was awesome meeting you out at the AZ EFest! Great discussion on wing to fuselage placement.... and the Red/White/Blue 57" Extra I purchased is absolutely stunning in the air ;-)

+1.

I have used the type from RCDude and they might be OK for a permanent installation, but after about a season of connecting/disconnecting them the wire chafed and broke.

Either directly from the website, or ask you local hobby shop to get them. They are made by Mcdaniel RC products, which is a division of Sonic-Tronics (maker of fuel pumps, and many other items....) 99.999% of all shops carry their products.

Zeb,

There's another option I found. I have a mid-sized SUV (Toyota Highlander) and found that with the seats down, I can just fit this plane into the back with the wings and SFGs on. I like to fly in the mornings on the way to work and this saves me 10-15 minutes in set-up/break-down time which basically means I can get in an extra flight in the same amount of time. For storage, I hang it vertically, nose down in my garage by the horizontal stab with the wings on.

This may or may not be for you, but it sure is convenient for me and maximizes my limited flying time.

To add to this set up........I recently started putting a short piece of large dia heat shrink tubing on the servo lead coming from the aileron servo. I then shrink the tubing so it's just tight enough to not come off of the servo lead, but still loose on the wire. I then CA the heat shrink just inside of the wing root.

Now the servo lead is always hanging out of the wing root. I never have to fish the servo lead out of the wing when I am putting things together.
