While I'm waiting on the new Hangar 9 Ultra Stick to release, I decided to go ahead and gather a few things to make the wait a little more bearable.
First, pre-order the plane... $299
Motor... I had already ordered a DLE 35RA before the plane was announced. Tower had it on sale, $30 off and a club savings of $45...$275
Servo's... Been wanting to try the Tactic X57's for a while now, I've had good luck with Tactic's standard servos and they seem to have some nice specs for the price http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXDKEP&P=SM ordered 6 (still haven't decided how I want to setup the rudder so I'll wait on that....$170
Spinner...Looking over the manual, it looks like the ARF doesn't include a spinner. I'm not a fan of the chrome/aluminum or bland/black CF spinners I set out to find something different that'll fit the Stick. Found one I think will fit the bill at SDS Hobbyhttp://sdshobbyusa.net/index.php?mai...oducts_id=3572 I've never ordered from SDS, but the spinner shipped same day (Monday) and tracking shows it on it's way from Florida. USPS really stinks in my town so they're holding the order up (supposed to have arrived 2 days ago) but not really shippers fault....$30
Servo arms https://www.redwingrc.com/Spot-On-1.75-Servo-Arm/ I used the Spot-on's on another build and really like them (make sure they're v'2, the v1's had issues) The color shouldn't really matter because the Stick has hidden hatches. I went with 1.75 because they have 3 holes (1.75, 1.5 and 1.25) and I can dial the travel down if necessary 6 for $70
OK, that's what I have coming so far, now for the things I'm looking at.ordering in the next month or 2.
Switch... I was looking at getting this from Booma http://www.boomarc.com/en/wallaby-sw...age-monitoring I use one now on another plane and really like it. Looking over the site though, I don't see an option to choose your own connector (like you used to be able to). Booma's supposed to be opening a place in the states soon, so I'll wait and see on a switch. I might move up to the Intelliswitch.or see what they have at Joe Noll.
Now things get complicated... Having just upgraded from a DX7 to a DX8, I'm definitely not wanting to have to upgrade again but I do want to make full use of the Ultra's quad flap/aileron and crow set-up. I need to figure out,, either through hardware or clever programming, a way to control the all the control surfaces and still have an ignition kill. I was also thinking of running an Aura 8 but if it eats another channel, I'll skip the gyro.
For receivers, I've been all over the place. Initially I was going to go with an AR7700 hooked to the Aura 8 through an SRXL cable with a RCCSKJ powerboard handling the electrical power but I'm limited by the 8 channels again. I was looking at the new powersafe receivers http://www.horizonhobby.com/product/...er-spmar12300t

This Review is for who want to buy lipos (due to out of them) or want to try out new lipos. I know most of guys update to these beast. Tattu R-Line 1300mAh 95C 4S1P lipo battery pack.
What is R-Line? R-Line is a brand new product line specifically designed for professional FPV racing competitions. It's the selling version of Toppilot batteries. They are more powerful than other graphene batteries. As We All Know Tattu is Known For Their higher capacity, lower internal resistance and lower Operation temperatures. It is Same As Tattu Top-Pilot Lipo. Its In first Stage Version 1.0 Which Performs Very Well. In the future different versions will also be rolled out to meet the needs of different FPV racing competitions.
Brand - Tattu
Capacity(mAh) - 1300
Voltage(V) - 14.8
Discharge Rate (C) - 95
Max Burst discharge Rate (C) - 190
Configuration - 4S1P
Net Weight(±20g) - 172.6
Length(±5mm) - 72
Width(±2mm) - 36
Height(±2mm) - 32
Connector Type - XT-60
Wire Gauge - AWG12#
Wire Length(mm) - 65
Balancer Connector Type - JST-XHR
At http://www.genstattu.com They are confirming that they are Top Pilot packs, and They are confirming that they are Graphene packs, Which Mean It can Handle More Than 500 cycles(when properly use with care.) so I know we're already in for a treat with their performance.
I like 12Awg grade wire for some serious amp draws. The Lenght Of Cable is not too short and not too Long. It can be easily useable On 200-240 class quads. It also Comes With Balance connector (protector) which is good to use to save balance lead from props and easily asseable When charging Them. Weight is About 182 (for 1550mah) I honestly use this lipo For race Weight to power ratio is like 180grms of lipo on beast setup. TESTING
I don't have ant Testing Equipment But i have other lipos like bonka, turnigy etc To Compare With I Gernally Fly them on a course and checking for battery sag, Internal Resistance,Build Quality.
Build Quality- As the Tattu is Known For good quality lipos they Directly reflects when You feel then In hand.
Checkig Sag & Overall Performance-I Fly Them around 13-15 cycles each last week. during heat i droped cells to 2.9-3.0v.After 1hr when i Reached Home I Charged Them I was Surprised To see no puff . They are True 1550MAh.This means that the 1550mAh genuinely gives you around 1550mAh if you leave around 20% in the pack as you should.They are Cold when They Land.
Internal Resistance-Comparing Them to Other Lipos They Are Very Minimal IR. I got 2-3ohms in Each cell in R-LINE & Got 3-6ohms per cell In Bonka. The Same Charger Was Used to ensure the results were kept fair. OVERALL THOUGHTS
They are a little heavy Compared to 1500mah Lipos (of course Coz its 1550mah), but provide solid and constant power throughout the pack but the fact the power is still there after 30 seconds Of Serious PunchOuts Thats Why it doesn't matter. Because of the extra capacity I was expecting them to perform not so good, but I am amazed to say I think they performed better. I had pulled on them in my 2:30 to 3 minute flights.From My First Cycle To Last Cycle They performed same which is incredible.. Now i know the Hype. I Will Definatly Use them In Race..

The KC-390 is a giant super-scale aircraft.
Wingspan. - WS: 339 cm (133.8 ")
Length. - Lenght: 332 cm (131 ")
Approximate weight 18kg (39lb) to 22kg (48lb)
Uses two P-100 turbines
Retractable mechanical landing gear
"T" Tail detachable for transport
Removable wing into two halves
Measurements of the cargo bay: 143.8 cm x 22.3 cm x 29.7 cm (a part of the space is used by the fuel tank)
Cargo compartment covers are opened equal to the actual airplane, via radio
Landing gear caps are similar to the real airplane and open just like the real one.
Hi you all, just having signed up for flying giants. I have been flying for 8 years now currently 16 and have mostly worked with electrics anywhere from smackdown 3D to scratchbuilt pylon racers, basically slowly building up in complexity and size. Being not a noob to electronics, I still have some issues.
Now I currently own a 89in. 50cc extra 300, it being my first gas airplane won't win any beauty contest but is my first large scale rc over 60 size planes. I've worked out most of the kinks of interference that the CDI puts off and various things, but now have encountered a more interesting problem; Brownouts (I presume). I have 6 HS hites 5645 digital servos in the plane that are obviously pulling quite a bit of power. I have a battery being regulated into a castle creation 10amp BEC that powers the radio setup on the plane. Also a turnigy capacitor set that is supposed to prevent brownouts plugged into the receiver. When I power up the system and I move the surfaces back and forth they randomly stop and resume again after a couple seconds. Having no servo distribution board, would it be worth it to put one in to solve the brownout issue? My dad being a avionics technician and having worked with models for 40+ years suggested taking two of our castle BEC's and running them in parallel to double the amperage for the hungry servo's which would avoid a expensive servo distribution board. What do you think? If I were to get a servo distribution board, where would I even get one that could support a minimum of 20 amps?
