high there HP. Welcome aboard.

I still have my Beaver as well. Hanging in my garage but will probably never fly again. I used it in the world record deal down at SEFF a few years back. I am finding it hard to consider flying a world record holding aircraft again! You can see me holding mine around the 3:40 mark in this video with my Son and his slow stick.

Here was mine in the air with the stock brushed motor and gear box. I later upgraded it to the Eskay 400XT, a very popular brushed motor at the time. The white wheels were originally also and I replaced them with some foam ones that looked a lot better.

Looks nice..yep foam is the way to go, the guy who got me into fly'n turned me on to brushless and lipo's and we alway's flew at big vacant lots or construction sites so the big foam wheels work great..my slow stick has the big ones also...as you can see by pic still so much snow so just repairs and seeing if batts still O.K. I need a T.P 1320 mah 3s or equivalent do you have a seller you use for best price?...Dale

My favorite battery nowadays is the Potenza line from Flex innovations. I have several in sizes from 3s 2100 to 6s 5000's and have had no issues with any of them.
