    Set up advise......



    I have been getting some really good help from the folks on the forum. Thanks to all!
    I just want to get some reassurence and added advice on my preposed setup. I am going to build the Seagull Edge 540 46.
    This plane has a 60" wing span and should weight right around 6 - 6.5lbs ready to fly. I am looking at the Turnigy 50-55B 600kv motor,
    a 60a ESC, 5s 5000mah lipo, and a 13x8 prop. Do I have all my electronics put together ok? Will this be enough power to fly the plane in a sporty manner
    (not nessessarely 3D, just sporty). Does anyone see any problems with my battery, motor. esc, prop combo???

    Any advise appreaciated!!

    Thanks again.

    RE: Set up advise......

    Love Doc ... I would say go with an 80A ESC, it gives you more headroom and also when you want go for a bigger set up or a higher amp set up. As for the motor I would go with the 5055 of around 500KV. On 5S that sort of motor will turn a nice 16x10. A 16" prop will give you better thrust than the 13". XOAR props are great, the wood ones. Have fun!

    Thanks for the input... but I'm pretty sure the plane is not big enough for a 16" prop. Like on the runway the prop would be probably less than a inch off the ground???
