Just sold my first 3dhs plane to a friend. Bye bye 41 edge, great plane but its going to a better home. Finally the older members of our club are seeing the virtues of electrics.

Anyways, do anyone know (or can link me to) those little things that keep deans connectors together. I made the mistake of soldering some knock offs on to lipos and have geniune on my esc side so the connection is a little loose. I think there is something out there like a lock for servo extension connections. Thanks

I would seriously recommend replacing them. I found loose "deans" to be the cause of losing a radio. something to think about. They gotta be every bit is cheap as the lock things.

+1. Even though it won't come apart mechanically, it could still seperate electrically.

That 78g motor isn't going to be good for anything bigger than the 41" Edge... the included slow fly prop wouldn't work for it though.

I would suggest picking the 3DHS plane you like and adding the recommended motor and ESC. They have good discounts if you buy a plane, motor and speed control together.

Yes, that Twisted Hobby combo would only be good for a 40 or 42 inch plane and the prop would be junk.

More like an 11 x 5.5 for that motor. If you really like the Edge then get it man.... Bigger flies better anyway.
