Maybe I just missed them, but did any of the setups from the IIC ever get posted?

I have mine complete but its 1.2 mb or so and won't upload because of the size. If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears. I guess I could see if AE wants to load them on their site, but I dunno . . .

I guess I could do a screenshot and then compress it. Hm m m

On the AE site its about 70 without shipping for all the parts in that list. You might be able to get it around 60 if you already have the bhs and the silver ball stud.

this is my 12r5 with tamiya screws, ceramic bearings, Yokomo standoff and spring retainer. About to convert to 12r5.1 but motor mounts always on back order. Also is it me or am I seeing things? Is the 12r5.1 aluminum parts more lighter then the previous version or is it just the photo?

The parts are indeed lighter (collor). I have a R5 and a R5.1 and the parts of the R5 are lighter then the 5.1

Hey Rob,
looking at the pic you posted of your 12r5.1 it almost seems that the aluminums are all very tamiya light blue and mine is very dark. I have been ssien this lately with associated. Was there differnet version of the 12r5 or maybe defect?

Hi walter, thanks for posting those setup details.

I was wondering how you went with runtime, were you getting close to using capacity, and was that with a receiver pack?

Thanks,
Martin
