Looking good Keith. I have my Fantasista 70 just about trimmed now. Never flown a model with such a powerful rudder. Low mist and rain stopping play on the North East coast at the moment!!

Hi Nigel,
 
Which motor / prop / ESC are you using in your Fantasista?
 
Thanks
 
Keith

Hello Keith.


The motor is a Hacker A50-16S V4 fitted with a 16*10 APC prop. I have used a Hobbywing 100 amp ESC. This is my usual 6 cell set up. The servos are Align DS530. These are helicopter servos and have metal gearboxes.
Performance so far is very good. It just took me a few flights to find a good set up.


Best Regards. Nigel.
