That's exactly what I was talking about. Great pics. Clear as a bell too.

Here is a quick shot of E-Whiplash at Huntsville. It looks badass in the air and is only going to get better once the production skids are on it

Nice, will have to order up a gasser once they are available then. Looks very nice, low parts count.

It looks nice in the air.

Can someone please explain how the batteries are held in the frames? Must you remove the canopy to put the batteries in and out?

What size batteries does it use? 4500mAh? 5000mAh?

What is the AUW weight?

Is this made for the Scorpion 4035 motor?

Justin,
FRom some close up pics I have seen the packs are NOT on a sliding tray. They mount underneath a carbon tray with velcro straps. I believe 5000's fit fine. The machine is a little bigger than most 90E machines. IE a 700E for example.

I was told Bobby prefers 500's and 710's.

I know nothing of the motor. He was using a Castle ESC.

To be a true E machine it needs a helical cut gear. No top end E model has a straight cut gear out there. Align offers a helical and Mikado is famous for the herringbone and etc.

Polish this old girl off with a helical cut gear option at least. Lots quieter.

The new CNC cut delrin flat gears work just fine You can push 8000 watts of raw power through these new gears with no issues. An optional helical gear would be a nice option though.

IMO, The big thing is having it cut rather than molded. It offers a much more precise gear that will mesh with another gear rather good.

Molded is not an option on 90 class machines. Period. CNC is the only option.

Straight gears are more efficient. Why do they HAVE to be cnc?

I really wish that MA would buck the current trend in canopies and make them wider and bigger. My Furion 6 is a bitch to see nose in, and it looks like this also has a small canopy. Take a look at the Rave, that canopy is wide and easy to keep track of. My Furion will be getting a different canopy, maybe from a Logo, and if I bought a Whiplash it would get something else, too.

Molded gears have more high spots and don't allow as good meshing and with the power 90E power systems have now, they are easily shredded. Easily, regardless the mesh. They just can't take it.

CNC is the best way to go.

Straight cut gears make lots more noise too. Ever heard the gear noise on a Logo? You won't either. Herringbone is the best there is, but helical isn't far behind it. No one does Herringbone, but Mikado as it is very hard to make.

Helical run good and quiet. MA didn't set out to make a middle of the pack machine, why just say, "This works, Go Fly it."

Eury,
I guess to each his own. I HATE huge, fat canopies. I don't like ones hard to see either, but 99% can be cured with paint.

I wouldn't say that the Rave and Logo have huge fat canopies, they are just shaped so they have a wider view when looking at them nose in rather than tapering to a thin point. Heck, even the T-rexes have a nice nose in view. Makes it much easier to keep track of for me. No amount of paint can make up for the narrow front view on a lot of these machines.

Norman, I've been running a stock mod 1 TR main gear on one of my 700E's since it was new, with no problems. I am running a Pyro 700-45 and a Jive 80HV though at 2000 HS.

hmmm, looks to me it's as wide as a Trex BUT taller and longer.

Batteries mount to the underside of the top tray, not on a sliding mount, but directly to the mount. Very easy to put in. Motor is a Scorpion 4035-500.

How does it work, put one batt in from the back, velcro it in, then put the other one behind it and strap it in? Should be OK, but I've grown fond of TR700E's sliding tray.

Yep, that's the way they go in. If you think about it, the time to take the tray out, batteries off, batteries on, slide the tray in is probably the same time wise as unwrap battery, battery out, battery in, wrap battery. Plus, the upper tray can be removed with 6 bolts, revealing the ESC which is mounted to the top side of the battery tray. Before you ask, no it does not appear to cause any heat issues from battery to ESC at this time.
