Extreme Rc 80mm alloy Wemo 6s setup.
Used 2900mah out of 6000mah Nano. Plenty of punch and speed.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fdmx3Dkp4s

SLING! Holy crap dude. That is one bad ass set up. How much was that power system? Soooooooo freaking bad ass. Sounds awesome and it looks a bit faster than stock. Any speeds taken with that set up? 6 Cells? Gawd I love that sound of the alloy.

Well, it looks like a perfect replica of the Dynam Meteor (or is it the other way round ), roughly 3 times more expensive though...

But the flaps and retracts are a nice addition. It looks nice, though I'm glad they didn't copied the fabulous Habu 32 colors.

good luck!
I took the retract apart tonight and cleaned as you sugested. Its now workin again as new.
thanks for the advice as I was about to send it back for repair now I dont have to bother.

Mine is 7 lb 3 oz with stock setup, Castle HV ESC, and 6S5000 45C nanotech. I installed Tam struts and a UBEC. My cockpit is custom, but light weight.
