Yeah, be gentle - the only bit I would worry with is the batteries - they are 20C which means 40+ amps would probably heat them up a treat (no good) - and you will probably be pulling 36-38 with the...

Haahaha ridiculous. 300+ Watts per pound - this is no longer a plane, it is a missile. I'll be interested to see if the airframe can take it. My bet is no.

Just like to remind you that this...

Its been said here that the 1100Kv robs you of some of the possible top speed that you might get with the hotter B model, and I can picture that in my mind. I can also see how it can be useful on...

As I said before and I think DetroitHawk concurred, the 1400Kv motor is gonna give you the most flexibility vis. prop selection.

I too would be concerned about the Kv on that motor - it is a little too hot. The 35-30 comes in three flavors, A - 1700Kv, B - 1400Kv, and C - 1100Kv.

I think the B might be more flexible when...

I don't imagine PZ is gonna 'upgrade' their warbird line anytime soon - they are hot on the EPP airframes like the Trojan and the Corsair, which are far more durable and sophisticated out of the box....

Yeah, I think the guy you need to ask is Mr. Radweld, as he opted (briefly as I recall) for an Eflite 480 outrunner. I think the verdict was that it was more torquey than speedy, but if you are not...

Again its the lack of a rudder that makes it a little problematic. Wheels are nice but you cannot steer them with ailerons. :p>

Nice man. YEah that's the big difference for me - In my maiden video I was flying with a TP 2070 25C/50C, so I could run at WOT for decent stretches. I grabbed a few of the Zippy No-label 2200mAh...

I believe it. I run the same setup with a TP 2070mah 25/50c 3S and it moves plenty fast for me. I suppose I am not a speed junky and therefore top speed (in a dive or otherwise) is not the full...

Tough break man. But no worries. You can get a replacement airframe for around 50 quid, take out the motor and Gear box, and you'll be back in the air in no time. Failing that, a wing is like 22...
