Callie has just excepted to do a custom job for my airliner where she will supply as well as the standard scheme clear decals and a cover panel for the port holes the required size and correct spacing, (which I have opened up on the fus for cabin light's) she is very good to deal with and under stands your need's.

What are the airframe parts needed to build one of these super airliners? Im really wanting an airliner, and was going to get the hobbyking A380, but i don't trust hobbyking airplanes after reading about some things.

******EDIT: I just checked all the parts to build the airframe up from scratch, its $174 just like the airliner costed! NICE!!!*********

You wire up the motors just like you Y harness ailerons. The receiver leads are Y harnessed to the receiver, and the power leads run to the pack(s)

If running 2 separate packs, I parallel the connections together, so that both motors are pulling from both packs instead of separate ones.

jamnbec, stock nacelles. Just bored out to fit the fans.
Trick, a 3M 77 spray adhesive can, with a piece of sandpaper wrapped around it, makes a nearly perfect 70mm form for sanding the nacelles.
I have a question. I've decided to run 4s 5000mah in mine. I understand the Y harnessing to the receiver, but what about ESC's? Do you use two ESC's and run a harness there too, or do you use 1 ESC? Im a little confused there. Also, how many amps is your ESC?

You still have to run two ESCs, one for each motor. You can then do a y-harness to the reciever. Basically you want the throttle channel to output to both ESCs (via the Y-harness). If you are running the stock motors, a 20-30 amp ESC will be fine. If you run upgraded motors, then check on the motor specs to see what is reccomended.

Are you planning on running 4s 5000mah pack? If so that might be too much for the stock motors, just keep that in mind. They are designed to run on a 3s pack.

Well no im going to be running the change sun 10 blade and the motors that glacier linked on page 86. I think i know how the y harness works...I just wire them both up to the same receiver. The thing im confused about is the battery. Im using a single 4s battery, so would I make a harness there too so that power goes to both ESC's from the battery?

Yes you will need a Y harness going from your one battery to the two speed controller's

To be 100% clear, you need a "PARALLEL Y-harness" from the 4s battery to the 2 ESC's. I am sure many hobby retailers or even on Ebay will sell a parallel harness that is already fitted to your type of connectors. You could also make one your self. Just make sure you dont screw up the polarity.

You can make one pretty cheap by soldering. Otherwise you can buy them from several hobby shops online as well as ebay.

You will need to make a male/male adaptor for the battery though.
