3DHS Slick 59"

*) Running recommended setup with:
a) Hacker A40-12s V2 (610kv), 236g motor only, 244g with A40 X mount, 252g with A50 X mount (I use this).
b) Castle ICE 100, (August 2011), Cut off 3.0V, Norm 150A, Soft ; BEC 6.0V ; Motor Norm 5, Forward, 12 kHz.
c) HS 225 MGs
d) Optima 7 with SPC voltage telemetry
e) Gens ACE 5s-3300 25C (470g vs. listed 447g)

*) Weight & Power:
--> 5.06 lbs without spinner and wheel pants
--> Xoar 15x8: 1233 W @ 65 A, 19.0 V, 244 W/lb (fresh pack); 1057 W @ 59 A, 17.9 V, 209 W/lb (tired pack).
--> Xoar 14x7: 960 W @ 50 A, 19.2 V, 190 W/lb (fresh pack); 825 W @ 45 A, 18.3 V, 163 W/lb (tired pack).

In this season, the Hacker A40-12s comes down cool after an 8 min flight with Xoar 15x8, put back 2000 mah in to the 5s-3300 mah pack.
In the summer, I think it will get hot with this power level, so throttle management is necessary. Otherwise, the Motrolfly 3620-560 kv (approximate) might be a better option. The Motrolfly 4315 is a much stronger motor (305g, 1500W capable), however, with the slightly forward CG design, about 1/2 - 1 oz of lead might need to be added to the tail to balance.

Update (11/11/11)
A bad harrier landing killed the landing gear mount on my Slick 59". Never fixed something like this before. So I used the landing block from my SC 57", the only part that I couldn't sell.
Finished covering the damaged part on the Slick. Already tried my best, and now I can say that I have a "free" Orange Slick 59".
