the things you buy when red wine is in the system :)
« on: March 05, 2011, 02:44:48 AM »

well after a good week at work and plenty of overtime at the factory (15hours) i sat down last night to look through my general boat shops had a few (probably too many) red wines and saw this from R2 hobbies

http://www.r2hobbies.com/eng/proddetail.php?prod=rcbt0401004

and red wine being the major factor i thought why not as i was a member of their shop i got 10% off the ticket price and i have lots of controllers and spare batteries and now have a spare 540L 5070 KV fieago motor plus 4 lipo batteries also purchased last night from hobby king 7.4V 30Cdischarge 5000mah

I cant wait  %)

but the downside of it was when i told the wife this morning what i had done she promptly told me to get rid of at least 3 boats before the new one arrives so i think my club is going to be happy with me the little dictator has been passed on to another member, my graupner jet sprint hull is looking for a new home and so is my slomoshun.     >>:-( bloody wife

Turnigy 180Amp Esc
3Blade 35mm 1.4 pitch prop

These things will fly with the right setup,id suggest 3-4 s lipos with the right motor and esc,Your esc will handle that not sure about your motor lol ,the jae21 riggers are doing 84 mph with 4 s setups.
