Default KMP 96 OV10 Bronco

Hey guys, I am looking at converting an OV10 Bronco to electric. I know less than nothing about electics. My experience with electrics is a old 400 inrunner with a 1350 3cell lipo on a foamy that I haven't flown in years. (5 or more)

Plane has a 96"wingspan.

weighs around 28 to 32lbs.

It is a twin. with retracts

This plane flys good with 91 4 strokes or 20cc gas. It flys great with YS110s or 26cc gas. I would like to turn a 3 blade prop. Somewhere in the 14 to 15" range.

I would like to spend around the price of a DLE20 withall the trimmings. (batts, switches,fuel tanks ect.) I'm guessing $300 per side.

Now what do I need?

You will need (2) motors, (2) ESC's and you will have to decide if you want a single BIG battery or two large batteries, 1 per motor / ESC.

Here is calculator to run some numbers.

http://www.s4a.ch/eflight/motorcalc_e.htm

I ran the Tacon 110 with an 8s 6000mah battery and a 100 amp ESC

Motor

ESC

Battery

You can set this up with a "Y" cable for 8s

Or you can run something like these

This setup will pull about 60 amps per motor, have 296 ounces of thrust spinning 16X10 props. That will give you around 37 pounds of thrust from both. So you should have about a 1 to 1 power to weight ratio.

Hey Buzz, thanks for the info. It seem this is on the higher power side. (which I like) What kind of flight time could I expect. I know I wouldn't be flying full throttle with this setup would I?
Are ten minute flight time possible with this setup?
I was going to ask about the Hobby King stuff too. That sounds like a mixed bag of customer satisfaction.

Take a look at the chapter on selecting power systems as well as Amps/volts/watts

The calc program says about 10 minutes of mixed flying. When I was setting up my glider tug, it said I would get about 15 minutes of mixed flying. I have done over 30 minutes of touch and goes. I have found the results to be around plus or minus 10% or so. They are close, but hard to say until you set up a watt meter.

Buzz, I notice that the ESC is rated for 2 to 6 cell. The batteries your are recomending are 8 cell. Will this work?

WHOOOOOOPS my bad

Here is the HV ESC

Sorry about that. Just cutting and pasting like a fool. They are more money, and the 100 amp is out of stock. You can also find them under a different brand at Hobby King.

80 amp

100 amp
