    Great video Samm

  • Jimmy K:

    this video is sooo helpful

  • Eric Chen:

    What type of connector did the battery holder have?

  • bigbattenberg:

    A really nice video this one. Liked! I did invest in Anderson Powerpole plugs with TRIcrimp pliers, to finally get rid of most of that tedious soldering.

  • rOHit rAnA:

    where i get these gagets

  • Wesss Plays:

    Thanks this was very helpful ????????

  • albertguti23:

    what amps does the esc shoukd have? the motor says 30 A. does it need 30 ? or does a 10 amp work for the motor?

  • Nikolas Gemenetzis:

    Samm Sheperd I am planning to do a twin engine plane. How will the setup be? Do I need 2 esc' s and if yes how to connect them?

  • MarkusPl4y:

    nice thx

  • MC Donald:

    Guys guys, for the first time in my life

    I heard an American say solder instead of sodder! No but seriously, great video – I thought there might be more to this, but now I know there isn't, I am far less hesitant about buying this stuff to make my own scratch built plant or glider! Also I'd like to add FPV. If you are reading this (despite it being a relatively old video) I would be very interested to see 1) a video on how to build a foam plane/hand-launch glider 2) how to install the cheapest and most effective FPV system on said air vehicle.

    (I wrote this comment halfway through the video and I've now seen the links, just thought it might be helpful for others in the same position as me!)

  • Zahid Hussain:

    where can we buy all the components and thanks for making such a informative video

  • capacloud internship:

  • Sir Lancelotte:
