    Hey guys,

    You will need to raise up the 180 ESC (build a platform) so it can clear the rails. It will mount either way. Google pics, and you will find lots of ideas to mount it. I built a Carbon Fiber platform...

    Good info hog. I think I will de-tongue the prop then. That is really the only thing I haven't tried at this point. I don't mind a slower hole shot since at this point if I go WOT out of the hole it...
