10s is better

I think you will need 10s power not a 6s lipo setup. I don't recall if the Hacker A60 can handle 10s. I love Hackers, just as good as Jeti's in my book. I have come believe the advice that more...

Add downthrust? So you are going to shim the motors--down a couple of degrees? Are you going to do it equally to both motors? I also thought about counter-rotating the portside motor to reduce...

Don't be too anxious. As per post #102 I ordered mine 6 months ago and I've never gotten one. I think this is either an incompetent businessman or a scammer. Acknowledge and move on.

E flite 46 5s Sure!

The stats for the Eflite46 rate it for 40amps and 5s Lipo's. That's a big motor (too big?) but the prop you've mounted is too small IMHO. I use an APC 13x10 on my Nexstar and I've only got an Axi...
