    Looking at that pic just reminded me again.
    The Vortex weighs only 355g (excl. rx), the power to weight ratio is great! These motors are a great match for this weight.

    Here ya go CheezWiz... just a bit of ground video from the flying today. Nothing special, only the 5th flight on this bird, and the first flight on the 6x4.5 HQ props. This will give you an idea of what to expect with a stock Vortex (well, it's a lot snappier and more powerful with the 6x4.5 props, but we need that additional lift up here in Colorado.

    Good to know. Looks like my 5030s won't have enough air to grab here.

    I want to stick with 5" though, so should I just go 5040 or even more aggressive?

    Must be less gravity where you live. Or mine ate a little more before the trip form China to my house. Mine weighs 364 grams. as pictured. might note that a deans connector is about 2 grams lighter than an XT60 as well(splitting hairs here) LOL
