I went with the 85A ZTW just to be sure; I'm not sure the 60a will give you any headroom.

Yes, the ZTW 6a external BEC gives you 5, 5.5, or 6v.

Now, back to the workshop! Got the motor mounted, and tail surfaces on; need to start working on the servos and then the cowl.

Have I mentioned before how much I like the way this plane is built?

I might go with a 60a. The most amps this plane pulls is around 55a.

Not much head room....will run warmer, and higher amperage ESCs give better power due to lower resistance (usually)...

Yeah, now that I think about it, I'll go higher. I was looking at the ZTW 70a esc paired with a ZTW 6a ubec.

Im running an ice 75 with full heatsink on my 6s setup for plenty of headroom and programability. CC 10a bec for added overkill

the "specs" say its enough. but at $50 i would ask if you trust $500 in plane and other equipment to it? Your next cheapest option that i would suggest is something proven like a hobby wing or ZTW. with those still i would suggest an external bec. a good used Ice 75 can be picked up one the classifieds here for $65-75 shipped and i would trust the internal bec for this plane. just my opinion.

I've read some good reviews on it. I don't know what I'll get. I'm still looking around.

I dont mean to be a downer but i learned the hard way that everybody was right. Get the good stuff to begin with and save yourself the heartache. $20 now could save you hours of problems and hundreds in crashes.

I have a APC 15x6 on it now because that was all that I had but do you think it is worth me ordering a Xoar 15x7 with a Hacker A40 10s?

Are they the bolts that just look like small wing bolts?
Thanks.

there should be four small 3mm white nylon screws with a round head. if you have a 7x plane they will look just like the ones that are included for the optional canopy securing mounts.

yes - small, round head nylon "thumb screw" wing bolts...they are packaged with the other aileron equipment in the same bag...two aileron control horns, control rods, ball link rods, etc. Each bag has the equipment for a single component, which I appreciate.

I found 3 out of the 4 bolts but I will just take one of the canopy bolts from my 72" Extra. Also you said the SFG bolts for 7X planes are different so what do those look like?
