Re: 3D Foamy Super Extra

I fly the Pro-Cap on the 2812-850. its good enough for me, at 17 oz( after some repairs and using 130gram 3 1500 packs cell packs) it still hovers and pulls out fine for me. Plus using those packs i get great flight times.

I dunno about it on a Super. John says its fine, but unless you kept it 17oz or under i dont know how well id enjoy flying it.

If i did it again id use a Hacker, but the himax does me fine on 11x4.7 APC, CC25

Will the Thunderbird 18 handle that hacker?


just looking out, know how pi$$ed youd be if the Thunderbird couldnt handle the amps that hacker will draw.

The 18 should handle the Hacker. The A20-22L 6-14 amps 17 Peak The A20-20L 6-15 amps 19 Peak.

I fly a Hacker A20-22L with a 20 Amp controller using an APC 11 x 4.7 prop and It is just barley warm.

Re: 3D Foamy Super Extra

Buddy flies Super Extra with the Hacker A20-20L on 10x4.7. AUW with prolite 3s 2000 is 19oz. 20amps on a 10x4.7 SP. In my opinion the A20-22l isn;t enough go with the 20l, but are you packs going to be able tot deliver the amps without big voltage sag??

Perhaps the 40in version will better suit your setup for the Etecs.
