So I've took my first step the the dark side

For this little beaut I've going for:

Hitec HS-5245 MG servo's
Hacker A50-14XS V3 motor
Talon 90 ESC
Turnigy nano-tech 4000mah 5S 25~50C Lipo's

Any thoughts on this before I click buy?

Yes, trust your feelings Roy - don't give into the Dark Side...

Other than that, if you have one of the common 4 button chargers, they're only rated at about 50W.

If you want to charge a 5S 4000Mah Lipo at 1C, you'll need 5 cell x 4.2 volts x 4 amps = 84 watts minimum.

On a 50W charger, a balance charge for an 80% discharged battery like that is likely to take in excess of an hour and a half unless its already very well balanced.

So budget for a bigger charger lol :)

It's only one plane :shock:

Been getting some help over at rc groups couple of guys there have got one but they are flying on 4S 4000 but they are using a motor we can't get here :cry: that's why they said get the hacker 50A-14XS and run on 5S batteries.

One of them has offered to ship one to me if I PayPal him the money what do you think? I have already brought the hacker motor now but this other motor will reduce the weight.
