Yeah, the first "official" RTF offer! 8-)

Could you please specify the prices/costs - does the "whole set" contain the Graupner, Lipo and VectorDD?

Are you using the 12 or 18A ESC KISS version?

Isen't 18A a little bit on the tight side?

With a 11x4.7 APC prop the motor asks a 18,7A at 100% with 4S.

Don't think so...
the motor need's 18,7A on full throttle.. and the KISS can handle 30A for 20 sec.
the question is... are you flying all the time with full throttle? :)
