of course with the v-fins the plane will groove better in the turns. additional rudder area. keep the back of the jet in the groove, not slide thru turns

Hey Don thnx for the info I decided to fly with an AR500. So far 3x successful flights! I want to build another someday with one of your wicked motor setups & some other mods. So far this is a fun one!

I am thinking to either get this plane, or the mini ultra stick. I like this jet and it will be my first fast plane and edf but the only problem is that I do not have extra motors and electronics since I usually have a sweet spot of just dealing with planes like the taylor craft 480, and mini ultra stick, and t-28 so I will have extra motors and stuff lying around should anything be broken.

Hi guys. I have changed to a hobbywing 40A opto esc after the stock one over heated and cost me the first air frame !!

I was wondering what timing to use with the stock motor as it sounds a little ruff at full throttle, at the moment I have not changed it from default.

Also looking at your specs I am a little surprised by my watt readings. I am using a LoongMax 30/40C lipo and am getting 330W out of mine on a ground test !!

Here it the first one flying around on the stock ESC.
