can someone provide a more detailed image of the tail gear and linkage? the image in the manual is too small for my eyes & my kit didn't arrive with any springs.

thank you,
Brian

I just pulled the trigger on this one. For $158 shipped, how bad can it be?

I've got a couple of 2650 mah 40C's that I'm using in my E-flite Carbon-Z, so I'll start with those. I also have a 3000mah 40C that I may try also.

That would be great!! I have some pre-bent 'Z' wires that are 3-4mm too long & I can't figure how to attach the control horns to the rudder.

Thank you for posting a picture if you're going to have time tonight. It will probably solve all of my issues & confusion.

Cheers,
Brian

Quick tip...when I lost my springs in my first crash, I replaced them with springs from a cheap ball point pen. They work great!

I'm looking for a pointer on battery size etc.

I am currently using Turnigy 2200mAh 40C Lipos, that fit nicely into the front compartment. However, every higher capacity battery I have looked at is longer....too long to mange to get the angle to slide it into the compartment. So, you guys who are using the higher capacity batteries....what batteries are they and how do you fit them in?

---------

The reason I am looking for higher capacity batteries, is that I have put in a Hacker 30 motor and a 14 x 7 APC electric prop. This pulled 55amps at WOT when held on the ground, so the stock 45amp ESC has been replaced with a Turnigy Plush 60amp (peaks at 80amp). The performance is great...hover at between 1/2 and 3/4 stick and bags of power to pull out. I did need to put some upthrust by adding washers to the motor mount, but that allowed me to take some (a lot of) trim off the elevator and she behaves much nicer on landings now!

But...with that draw on a 2200mAh battery, flight times are woefully short...hence why I would like to know where to put a larger battery!

Thanks in advance.

My lipos are Nano-tech 3300 4S :







Tools used to widen the lipo's place. It is necessary to remove approximately 1 mm on each side, on the length of the compartment, it is necessary to get the access from both sides, so you'll have to remove the motor and it's mounting plate. I have glued the ESC on the top of the compartment, and I have widened it in a way that the battery goes in by rubbing, thus it remains in position without fixation and without risk of moving in flight. Fast and easy.

Thanks for that.

My issue wasn't the width or height of the compartment, but the length of the battery. With it being longer, I couldn't get the right angle to slide the battery in....
