Even though we have a desert background where I am, we do more flying in bright blue sky than against the desert background. Silver is hard to see in a bright blue sky.

Are you saying you are fully charging the batteries before putting them in storage? If so, this is not a good practice as lipos don't like to be stored fully charged. You will want to put them on...

I did not have rudder on any of the many pusher jets that I built, they really don't need it. But if you're doing a pattern routine, you will need rudder for some of the maneuvers. The hardest part...

Nick did some great pusher jets. I worked with him on designing a couple of his planes. My favorite was his F4D Skyray!

I see a wide range of prices just by doing a Google search for 2212 1000kv. For peace of mind, I'd suggest any listing that shows the brand name Suppo. I used those motors for years without issue.

I just got one of the Mark II meters (a flying buddy is the one that builds them now) and I love it! No more moving the pins to each cell. Now the meter will show you all cells simultaneously.

Just depends on what comes in the kits I buy. Most are still analog, but the bigger planes seem to be getting digitals these days.

I started with the 6S version. Flew great, but wanted more. So I swapped the 8S JetFan out of my F-4 into the Raptor. Much better vertical performance. But then I got my hands on a JetFan 12S setup...

Could be that this setup is intended for quad copters, so with 4 motors running to share the load they can run a bigger prop at less RPMs. Using this on a fixed wing, you definitely want to prop down.

Freewing 90mm F-22. Got 4 flights on it this past weekend. Today I decided to take the JF90 8S setup out of my Freewing 90mm F-4 and swap it with the 6S system in the F-22. Can't wait to fly on 8S!
