Thanks a million bijillion quintupillion kaboomillion!!!

I'll hope to post pics as soon as I get parts
also I decided that I would buy a parkzone UM mustang motor and try that first, then if that doesn't work I'll put it in another plane and put in all the electronic we talked about.

Why is everyone talking about putting a diode in, mine works just fine without?

Because Horizon Hobby said the bricks and servos should be run on 1s.

I tell people Power Wheels run great on 18 volts, but if they burn them up, I'm not going to warranty it for them.

If you're using a BESC (which most ESC's are now), there's no need to do it, it puts out the correct voltage anyway.

Bowerz for the sakes of a diode your running it at 5v, which is cheaper a 50c diode or a 50$ brick? Literally a brick

So you have to add a diode for the AR6400 even with a BESC? Seems kind of silly to me, what the point of them adding BL capability?

Because the primary use is on one cell brushless setups where the voltage is not a problem.

The limits on the rcvr are 3.2 to 4.2 volts. To get more poop out of the motor, you need the 2 cell system where the BEC puts out 5.2 volts. Mine runs on the 2 cells. A buddy has the brushless motor and ESC coming from HK that runs on the single cell for a weeny Bug, and of course, needs no diode. So the choice is whether you want to run 1 or 2 cell system.

Here are some pictures of my 1/72 scale Bristol Superfreighter, power is 2 X 6mm pager motors using a single 150Ma cell from a Blade MCX, construction is 0.050" Durobatics, flies really well after a long scale like take off run , more details at https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1161392

Just completed Miss America. I scaled it down to about 26” wing span. The radio is an AR6400, motor is a 5 gram outruner, a 4540 prop, and a DP 3A 1S 1 gram brushless speed controller. I flew it this morning with a 400ma lipo because I thought it would be tail heavy. Well it was nose heavy and was able to trim in enough up trim for a very pleasant flight. It weights with the 400ma battery 53.5 grams, or 1.9 oz, with a 240ma battery 48.5 grams, or 1.7 oz. The 240ma battery will be just right for balance.

It has lots of power, after getting some altitude it just floats around at less than throttle. I have to get a black Sharpie to change the color of the prop. It is covered with Japanese tissue, and one coat of thinned dope.

Love the sport, not the plane
Very cool. I am wondering the AUW of these planes...
