E flite Edge 540 QQ 280

This will be a place for all the info about the new Edge 540qq I/we all keep loosing data in the very busy thread so here is a place for all to find hopefully what they need to know.

Battery info in thread here

Thunder power 325 65C 33 Grams $23.99 Wight with Velcro is 34-36g
Nanotech 370mah 25c 35Grams $4.23 edited I got mine and they are only 35g with Velcro I added
hyperion 450 mah 25c 42.5 grams $15.95
Glacier 450mah 25c 45 grams $4.50
Nanotech 460mah 25c 45 grams $4.72

RCBABBEL Battery info

BB Hyp (3S) 450 w/JST-XH...
BB Hyp (3S) 550 w/JST-XH...

slo-fly Prop info.

The gws 7035dd pulls 102.5 watts and 8.87 amps with a hyperion 450mah 25c.
The thunder power 325mah 65c pulls 106.6 watts and 9.15 amps.

It seems the TP 65c are the best battery, there light weight, plus you have a very fast recharge time

If anyone else is like me and is wondering about the plug they have from rx to esc lead here it is this is the model number

it is 4.99 on HH site.
link to it is here

I just got my Edge 540qq today 12/7 but cant fly it it was damaged out of box bad stripped servo and messed up aileron Really a drag
Well got it glued back together kinda fixed the one bad servo went to test it out video flying starts at 40 sec
Maiden flight of edge 540qq (6 min 25 sec)

One place that sell 3.5G servos should be a good replacement

Someone said the wires are short so get one of these to make it long enough

Here is another option, I notice these have a standard servo plug so you will have to change it.

Do you need more control movement check this out take maybe 5 minutes to do

I made this list on oct 30--not sure if you had seen it.

perhaps you could integrate/revise your above list.

some of your weights are too heavy (zippy 500, nanotech 460, gens ace)
mine have been revised by actual battery weight--not from website.

< 60g 3s lipos in order of weight

thunderpower 480 25c 42g
nanotech 460 25c 42.1g
eflite 450 30c 450 42.5g
hyperion 450 25c w/o balance plugs 42.5g
zippy compact 500 35c 43.1g
gens ace 450 25c 44g
glacier 450 25c 45g
hyperion 550 25c 47g
thuderpower 730 25c 57g
