I just purchased this glider recently and it is my first rc plane, what size (as in dimensions) battery should I get for it?

I put a 6x6 prop on my plane but haven't tested it yet I wonder if anyone else has put a 6x6 if so is it better than the stock prop? /thanks

I am looking at purchasing this nice looking model and was after what ESC connector it had for the battery? I see someone else has asked it before with no reply. Thanks in advance

Gorden the ESC has a Nylon T-Connectors (Male). The Battery will need a Nylon T-Connectors (Female). I hope this helps.

I don't know about any **NEW** version's of this, but mine came from the AU warehouse with an XT60 connection to the speedy, the same as EVERYTHING HK sell. Some pictures show the useless T-Style Deans plugs, but these are hopeless and fail if you pull more than 3 amps beyond the rating for them. I have seen them melt with as little as 30 Amps drawon SO CALLED 80Amp plugs. The XT60 on my speedy is regularly hit with 70 Amps on my own design 3D model, and just keeps going. Stick to XT60 -XT90 or XT150 plugs, and you will never have a failure, and they are simple to solder and take A LOT OF HEAT before they distort.

Simon well it is about time they up dated there Photos. I was only going by the Photos. (Hobby King have always said if it is not in the Photo you do not get it). Simon if yours had a XT60, that would be the NEW Version. SORRY.
 Simon 12 points
Sorry ?? Sorry for what ??? All you did was say what you saw in the pictures, nothing wrong with that. I should clarify my reply, ALL i have bought recently from HK has XT60 plugs, but my 1st model, the PT17 Stearman came with 4mm bullet connectors on the speedy. So it doesn't always appy that what you see is what you get......remember these are all CHINESE made items, and could be made from anything laying about the factory floor. Some QC seems to be lacking at HK sometimes...

Nice Model. Flies nicely if trimmed right, but even out of trim, it's a pussycat. If your after value for money, buy one of these. I'm buying my second one now, the first one is now more glue than foam....but still flying. It's so DOCILE, it crashes itself.....not because it's bad, but because it makes you think your better than you are at flying. The only drawback is when they hit terra firma at the wrong angle they break. Maybe i should stop flying it inverted around my field at 3 foot off the ground in 40Kph wind. THIS thing loves the wind though, i like sitting with the motor off, nose into a 30Kph wind, and fly backwards up and down the runway. EXCELLENT MODEL. Never used more than 3s 1300Mah battery, and regularly fly for 4 hours per battery. I have 4 of the same size battery for this, and never fly less than 90 minutes on each one, even in high wind. It says something for an aircraft design, if you can fly for HOURS at a time and the only reason to land is your transmitter goes flat.......and on a 1300 Mah battery....for ALL DAY flying, the model, batteries and radio cost IN TOTAL $135.00 at my door. And it was delivered in 3 days after i bought it, and was flying 2 hours later........gotta love instant dry hot glue.

Simon I love Hot Glue too. Here is a tip: After a few repair or two, you can flatten the surface with a hot iron. If you want to un-glue then boiling water does the trick!

Why would i want to smooth down all the rough bits on the model ???? I use them to catch it when i have to land, as it has no U/C or wheels, i fly right upto myself, pull hard up on the elevator and tail slide it into my hand at the side of the runway, if i take all the roughness away, it might slip out of my hand when i catch it...But thanks for the tip anyway :)

Wow ..what a great plane ! have over 60 flights now, had a few crashes ( handing controls over to friends/relos lol..) got rid of prop saver and fitted normal prop adaptor, flies good on a 3S 1600, like everybody else recomends 2200 has better CG, stock servos will need replacing if you crash, I put some metal gears in there from HK :) Motor is super fast ! or you can slow it down and glide around on calm days. Buy the servo less version and put some better quality ones in :)
 NewToHobbyKing 14505 points
Darrin if you do not crash, the cheap servos, do hold up. You must check them, even after a hard landing. Good ides though, (Buy the ARF version and fit your own gear).

Got this plane after crashed my Bixler and couldn't get it in Australia. Came in excellent packaging. Everything required, even glue was included. Took only 30 minutes to make it flight ready. Taped aileron and elevator hinges. Few things: - CoG was nowhere documented. Had to guess around the thickest part of the wing. - Very sensitive to wind. Not able to overcome a slight wind. Goods: - Only 30pcnt throttel was required to nicely cruise - Very easy to hand launch - Excellent finish Overall, if you pick a calm day, this is an excellent plane.

Awsome plane for the money. 2 days delivery from NSW warehouse. Well made, stable flier. Have flown in 15kmh winds no problem. Remains to be seen how long the motor will last but would be cheap to replace anyway.

G'day bought 6 of these gliders for club night flying. A nice quick build and all was supplied for construction. I optioned to use the turnigy 3S 2200mh batterys in them and in this configuration found the c/g to be perfect at 1/3rd of the wing root .Out of the six planes test flown none of them needed any trimming, perfect out of the box.(it was very gusty between 20-25km's)
Ok now for the not so good points,
1. the motors where wired up incorrectly running the wrong way for pusher ,
2. the rudder & elevator servos not glued in very well (we epxoyed them in place)
3.aileron and rudder mix is a good idea for more responsive and flatter turning. (aileron alone was not real good)
OK as far as ratings go i'd give it the thumbs up, for quick and ease of build and quality of the foams smooth finninsh to be one of the best ive seen in a foamy.
For the money it's a well worth investment.

Awesome plane, top quality finish and the stickers are great quality
Easy to assemble, make sure you get your CG right, makes it so much easier to fly, also glides forever
Great for beginners and best to use some Zippy 2200 mah packs, CG is perfect. Make sure you tighten your motor mount (2 grub screws) common issue with them coming lose. My motor popped out on maiden flight but was an easy fix. Use a little loctite to make sure they don't come lose with the vibrations
Motor is very powerful, worth upgrading to a 6x4e propeller as on a fully charged 3s pack the motor will make over 200 watt with easy. Makes this plane a whole lot more fun to fly! Great value for the price

The cons - one servo started smoking on first power up. The wings don't hold in well so need to either glue them or make some catch. Gets a little unstable when flying rather slow while turning due to the big wings. The pros - My 7 year old did the maiden flight and flew it like a pro. Previously he only flown small 3ch planes. That's how easy it is to fly. Bring it up and than glide nicely down or just cruise around. So easy I was getting bit bored being used to planes that need constant attention. Can't do any rolls with it but can do fairly tight loops on 3S. Looping at full speed bends the wings like crazy but they don't break. I hit a lamp post at 1/2 speed and only got a dent in the wing. Pretty tough plane I'd say. it flies well on 2S as well, even had in small 2S 1000mah and it was fine tho little tail heavy for gliding. When Lipo goes low the ESC will alternate to motor speed up/down to let you know wchich is pretty need tho the forst time I thought it was about to die not knowing what it was :-) Good plane, get one.
