Hobbycity is out of stock right now but I have found them to have the 9XL pretty cheap.

They also have some great deals on lipos!

I don't think they really carry any feigao stuff anymore. It has been out of stock for months with no ETA due to 'quality concerns and warranty issues'.

I think rc-monster would be your best bet for the 9XL. And if you get the heatsink clamp to go with the motor you won't experience any of the quality and warranty issues.

Update...

Thanks for every ones help on this and I have ordered the following from RC monster..

1x Mamba max ESC
1x Feigao 7xl
1x Castle creations BEC
1x 5mm 14 tooth pinion.

Iwill see how this goes and then upgrade to some carbon fibre bits..

I will try and get a credit on the LRP stuff and maybe get a Lipo or 2. any suggestions as to what lipos to get?


Thanks

Almost any new lipo will do the job, as long as they can handle the amp draw.
Go for at least 4-5000mah, with at least a 20C constant rating.

Did you also order the motor heatsink/clamp from rc-monster? Some people have had their endbells pop off on the feigao L and XL motors, the heatsink/clamp will prevent that from happening.

the heatsink is a must and as far as lipos go try rc-monster for the flightpower packs. i have a 3s and 5s and they run great with lots of power. get some cooling fans for the esc and motor to keep the temps down as the 7xl might heat up. good luck and post some picks. don't forget to keep the max rpms of the motor below 40000 rpm to reduce excessive wear and tear and to keep temps down.
good luck and keep us posted
