Slow Stick electronics
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have just acquired a Slow-Stik that has servo's, a 400 in-runner with 25A ESC but no Rx or batteries.
I would like to know which Rx would be the best choice for this a/c and my DX7 Tx.
Also, I just purchased a pair of Lipo batteries for this application. They are "store-brand" 900mAh units..... one 2s and one 3s. They both have relatively small gauge leads and small connectors like you would find for Rx power-supply in a nitro a/c.
The Stik has heavier wire from the ESC with a Deans connector. Have I got the wrong batteries for this application or do I just replace the original battery connectors with Deans units and go?
Thanks for your assistance.

Re: Slow Stick electronics
For a receiver, I would use either an AR6110 (or the older 6100) or AR500 full range RX. I've flown my Slo-V with an AR6100 and never had range or glitching issues. Although there are no official specs, the AR6100 has been informally tested and the range was found to be around 3km line-of-sight.
Your battery connectors might be 'JST':
You can simply swap these out with Deans. JST connectors are good for up to 10A and I only use them for indoor where weight is a concern.
Be sure to check the specs for your ESC. It should have a Low Voltage Cutoff that is LIPO compatible, approx 3V per cell.
