I just ordered one of these today.

Anyone know what the distance is between the firewall and the front of the cowling? My A60-6XS is 75mm long so I am trying to figure out the standoff spacing.

We were discussing the power system for the 70 on the power thread and I asked the question for you... 1/4 inch was what I was told. You can join the conversation here:

My plane shows up tomorrow. I flew the power system on my 71 Slick before it had a structural failure (wing tube end cap). It has gobs of power swinging a 20-21" prop. We'll see how this airframe handles the gyroscopic effects of that big of a prop disk.

Hey guys,

For those of you who are flying the Phoenix 85HV, what settings are you using? My Ice 100 crapped out so I dropped the 85HV in as replacement. The motor is a Hacker A50-14L V2.1. I haven't read about any issues with the 85HV but I wanted to check.

The timer I have setup to record motor on time just rolled through the 110 hr. mark! That puts me through the 1000 flight mark with this airframe. It looks a little ragged out but still flies true. Thanks Extreme Flight for making a tough airframe. It makes the hobby much more affordable when airframes hold up as long as this one has.

I weighted mine the other day. 7lbs 14oz without a battery. That makes my AUW 9.5 lbs on 6s 5300. I also fly it with 4000s.

A buddy of mine wants to do one up with a DLE-20. I am going to attempt to do a simulation of the power with a gas prop and the Spektrum RPM sensor that is installed.
