HOLY CRAP!!! CG issues!!! unfortunately the motors I bought are for 3cell only!! So I have four 3 cell 2200mah packs I thought I would use two at a time. NOPE!! I have three battery's plus a 2000mah receiver pack and still not enough weight!!! The two 2200 3 cell batterys come to just about a pound. I'm guessing I'm gonna need almost two lbs!!! anyone got a butt load of led ... I guess those hs82mg servos in the tail make a BIG difference!! any suggestions??? I want a test flight tomorrow!!

I hope not. I have been watching this thread for a few weeks now as I hope I get one for Xmas. But now I also see Nitroplanes is completely sold out.

I've about given up on Nitro. They are consistently out of stock on anything I would want to buy from them. Can't even keep batteries in stock.

I feel you..... Thats why you have to jump when given the chance.... I wanted a ARF but they were out so I bought 2 kits before they ran out. at least the kit came with the retracts. as for batterys... I used two 3 cell 2200 in parallel that I had laying around. My first flight was about 2min and the batterys came down hot with 50% compasity. I want to order a couple 3300 but as always...OUT OF STOCK!! so waiting and checking many time threw-out the day....

AeroSky B60 Build


Did anyone out there build the RTF version? If you use the stock battery, do you just strap it in the front and the CG is good? Also do any of you think you need to use those plastic hinges, as my foam hinges seem real good,i may use wicking type hinges, but the foam ones look good at this time...thanks Zagi

I didnt do the rtf I did kit. NEVER rely on foam hinges unless your plane is less then a lb. At the VERY LEAST use blendurm and tape your surfaces down. I would use the hinge pins that came with the plane. I feel you just asking for trouble down the road. The LAST thing you want is a control surface failing.

I guess I didn't glue my retracts in well enough for my rough landing today. Minor damage but I lost my left wheel and my right retract fell out. oops Glued back in and ready for tomorrow. I'll post a video shortly.
