Motors and props for X5
Hello,After some reading that overpowered X5 are difficult to manage, I decided to put there 200W, 1300kV motor and 7x4,5 folding prop.But it doesn't want to rise at launch... I've tried wing (frisbie like) launch and also took the risk to overhead throw (no problems for hand with this prop).1. Is this setup enough ? What motors and props do you use ?2. Is it really possible to launch it without bungee or wind ?Regards, PawelRead more…
