Quality thru-out One of the best arf's I have built. I 've had no problems with the landing gear block. But I have bent the gear on a few hard landing's. I mixed in about 3/4" to an 1" flaps with a little up elevator and it lands nice and slow now. My favorite plane to fly hands down.

Hi all,
Just jioned the mfx club can not wait to fly it.
This is what i got:

E-Flite 480 1020kv brushless outrunner
TP2100 3cell lipo and 1 tp2070
40 amp eflite ESC
4 Hitec hs 65 servos
ar6000 parkflyer receiver

Will i have trouble with running 4 hitec 65 on this ESC?
if so what do i do? better esc or bec? whats best? whats lighter?

"I passed on the kool-aid"
I would look at getting the park BEC just to be safe. It weighs next to nothing. Experiences have been erratic with the e-flite ESC's. I am using a phoenix 45 and trust the BEC on it but might be concerned with a different brand.

1.21 Gigawatts!
eklm, for a bit more economical choice, the align 35amp is 55 bucks at my LHS and i have one in both my balsa blanes (mini funtana x, brio 10), my trex, and my problems to date and a breeze to program.

I've been running 4 HS-56 and elfite 40 amp (dual bec version) handles it with ease, it doesnt get hot at all.. I believe it it also depends on how many amps do you pull, if you pull like 40 it will probably fry it..

Im putting one in the elevator for the extra throw. also going to move the wing back 3/4'' and cut 3/4'' off the nose. this plane flys great out of the box blenders and ke spins no problem but I want them tighter.

just had my first "crash" , the pack was dead and i came in for a landing. there was a huge rock right were i was about to touch down, so i turned and almost hit it but bent the left side of my landing gear. the balsa was slightly cracked so i glued it up and bent the gear back. seems fine and im going to go for another flight
