Jared,

You are going to love this airplane. Great choice! If you have any questions during the build just let me know.

The 10xl is a perfect motor for the airplane. I am flying it on a 3s2100 and a 14x7 APC propellor. It has more than enough power for anything you want to do. You can also go up to a 4S pack, but you have to prop it down a little. 4s is just ridiculous....in an awesome way.

I am thinking I might need a 4s pack but I am planning on putting in a E-Flite 25BL which I think has a lower kv than the Hacker.

Has anyone else tried this motor?

It will need modifications to the motor mount, as the cowl is too short for that motor.

I got one in FG colors last week, but I had the stock Extra before. 10XL, 14x7E, TPX2200 3s will get you ~500W. With 3s it has more than enough power, the only draw back is the flight time. I was getting only a lil over 5 min of full 3D flying.

It's simply an awesome flyer!

Anyone else have a problem with the wing retaining system?

I broke mine plugging the wing in for the first time. I need to figure out a way to either replace that CF rod or switch to a different system.
