Default Race Rat Power


Do any of you have a recommendation for a power set up for a Race Rat? I have one, new in the box, that I want to venture into fast electric flight. I know that I will have to beef up the wing as this is a common place for failure as well as the fuse. I don't need to break the 200mph barrier as I know that the air frame would probably not hold up but the 150 range might be nice.

Default RE: Race Rat Power

hrm, it looks like you've asked this q several times, but it looks like no one really knows the answer. Sorry I don't really know what to tell you either. I don't know how many oz of thrust that plane would need to get going that fast, or how much the plane even weighs in the first place.

The first way I would go about solving the problem is figuring out the AUW of the plane, and then figuring out how many oz of thrust you will need to get it up to the speed you are looking for, and then matching a motor and a prop after you have that info is pretty easy. Good luck with figuring it out =)
