I used Futba S3002, since they fit the slots. I believe a Hitec 225HG is the same size.

PS S3002's are no longer made, but I am sure there must be a sub.

what length servo extentions are you guys using for the rudder servos and elevator servo,also where did you direct your motor wires out of the nacelle to the ESC (probably will mount mine on side of carbon motor mount like Roger did) and where did you bring the esc wires into the fuse....Roger if you make servo covers you've got my order if its as good as your nacelle then i'm in for the covers....ran my motor up yesterday at my friends house he only had 6s 5000 20c batts (they were fully charged though but have had 200 odd flights on them) and made 3900 watts 95 amps .... cant wait to see what this ( little screamer dynamax fan air sally nacelle) will do with my (6s 5000 45c batts 2 flights only)....also want to mention that I did not have my thrust tube on during this test haven't installed it yet.

What would the difference in the numbers be if I ran 6s 5000 45c or running xps 6800 6s 65c?

in the bottom of the nacelle there is a naca type scoop i ran my motor wires out of that .the batt wires to the esc located on the side of the C/F mount .those wire come out the back of the fuse and go over to the esc .i have a small wire harness clamp just infront of the fan to make sure the wire dont get eat'n by the fan . the CC dasta log on mine with the XPs pro motor and 6800 65c batts is a peak number of 121 amps,and just over 5200 watts ...those are peak numbers settle to 116 amps and 4900-5000 watts.that is with a 3.5" tail pipe .i think it is a tad more and plane is faster at 3 3/8" tail pipe.

I used Hot glue to just hold it in place and then used silicon to do all the real work of holding it in The data of the ICE160 said the ESC never got over 115 on the hottest day of summer
