Default ROBBE P51 MUSTANG EQUIPMENT SPEC HELP

Can anyone provide me info for a Robbe P51 Mustang?

Doesn't seem to want to "go". I have handlaunched the aircraft twice, kept level flight (or tried before coming back down.

It has a Race 600 motor, protech Pro 35 speed controller, 8x4 prop and a 7cell Ripmax Sanyo 8.4V 2000mAh battery pack.

I plan on trying a couple of different props ie 9x6.

Can anyone advise?

Help would be much appreciated.

Carl

The 9x6 prop will burn up the motor for sure. 8x4 is about the largest prop you want to try with a direct drive 600 motor like that.

The most likely causes of your problem, in order of likelihood:
1. Battery is not fully charged.
2. Battery too small to produce enough current to run the motor, or battery is bad.
3. Airplane is too heavy for power system selected.
4. Prop on backwards.
5. Motor is bad.
6. Faulty solder connections.

Check all your connections, and make sure you charge the battery with a quality peak-detect charger. The battery must also be made from Sub-C cells; AA cells will not produce enough current.

Hi Matt, just to let you know, I changed the battery pack for a new one. Did the job. It flies quite well, still a litlle difficult to get away but with a slight wind when launching it is all ok.

Quite good fun this electric "thing".

Thanks again, Carl
