losi, what prop are you using?

I have a Park 480 in my E-flite Extra 260 480 with an 11x5.5 prop. It's pretty powerful, but I don't recall it having tremendous 3d power. Of course, that may be my lack of abilities. And that plane is supposed to be 26-29oz flying weight.

I guess I'll have to pull that plane out again, weigh it, and fly it.

On an APC 12x6E and a good 20-30C pack the Park 480 1020kv should have good power. Not mind blowing vertical, but good.

I am using a 12x6 prop. It has good power! Not like my 276watt/lbs extra that I had but it isnt lacking either!

I am looking at getting the reaper 30 for the slick! Will that be ok? Is it to heavy? If its to heavy I guess I will have to take the park out of the edge 540 for the slick and put a reaper 25 in the edge

Is the A30-28S still the prefered motor because of the lower 1140kv to allow use of 12x6 props?

Reaper 25 would be much better. Either Hacker / Reaper will both work great.

That's the motor I'm going to be running on mine. I've seen Andrew fly his with this setup and it had PLENTY of power.

I really like the A30-28S - I thought the 11x5.5 was serious power (and amps) not sure I'd want to use a 12x6. G-25 is one Reaper I've not tried yet...

The A30-28S rocks on the 12x6, with a little throttle management comes down just warm.

Sounds like I am going to be ordering the 25 instead of the 30. I hope the slic flys as well as the edge. I am loving this little edge

It took me 30 years?!?!!!
And I was thinking the Reaper 30 (coming soon?) might be the ticket, but it is pretty high kV... 1500.

Sounds like the Hacker or the 25 would both work, eh?

The Reaper 25 is compatible with the E-Flite 480? yes no maybe?

I thought the GR-30 was supposed to be 900Kv.

spec sheet list 900 but preorder page list 1500

Edit:
I wouldn't use this motor in the slick.
Just remember seeing the 900Kv GR-30 spec sheet earlier and wanted it for my SHP.

I use a Torque 2818-900 on my Uzi Xxl, same weight as the Reaper 30, with Xcite 1800's, 12x6 prop, and it has silly power. AUW is 27 1/2 oz's. Could be another alternative for a heavier set-up.
