speedwing Mini Twin anyone have one? few ? about it

I just ordered a Mini Twin

I went with the Feigao Brushless Motors 1208436L X2


I was looking for something that can be put in the car/ truck w/o a hassle. Titan donít fit lol.

This is my first Twin and my second wing. Im just not sure on how the TWIN part works

I got (2) 9 amp ESCís could the twin motors be run off a single ESC say a 20A or 30A to be safe?
If so how would one go about splitting the ESC signal from Rx?

I still need a battery. My question is I have a few turnigy 3 cell, 11.1V, 2200 mAh batts. Website was looking for a 1450 Lipo will the ones I have @ 2200 mAh be too big / heavy for a 29Ē wing?

Is there any things I should do not do while putting it together any tips/ tricks to help build along?

I have a futaba T6j Tx It came with a 6 chan Rx it takes the FHSS 2.4Ghz Im having a hard time finding a 3 chan Rx thatís micro size and also FHSS compatible? And help there Or will other 2.4 Rxís work with the futaba?

Thanks for all the help

You are gonna need 2 esc's. It's hard to get brushless motors to run properly on 1. I know some have done it. But you'd be better off with 2.

u use 2 ESC's as MUTCAKE said than u connect a servo Y splitter to connect both ESC's to the one throttle port on the receiver and the 36L feigaos will burn out on 3S the only advice i can give is to use extra reinforcement around the TE where it meets the plywood keel in crashes it tends to put a crack in the foam along side the plywood keel starting at the TE and the FHSS receiver only comes in 4ch that i know of for air use
