    This is what I have. It works really well and had power to spare.

    If you get something that is the equivelant of a .46 nitro you will be fine.

    I get over 9 minutes. I have no idea how long it is at full throttle for a whole flight. I use 100% at takeoff and initial; climb then throttle back to just about 60% My batteries don't even get warm.

    Claw
    I am building my Reaper now. I am installing a Turnigy T3648-850
    and am using a 11x8.5 three bladed prop from HK. Amp draw at full throttle is 46A.
    Hope this helps,
    Neal
