Default Guts from the HABU

I have a 60 esc and some 4cell 3300 batteries. Took them from my crashed Habu. It has a BL-15 3200kv ducted fan motor. I want to use this in a speed prop plane setup. What kind of prop could i attach to this motor? Also, planes that can be recommend that could handle this set up for speed. I could imagine this motor can turn up some serious prop RPM. Thanks

Check out a "SCREAMON DEAMON"
Or you could build something like I did.

Now thats more like it. Is this the electronics from a Habu? Battery and esc? Where do you find the prop attachment to hook onto an inrunner shaft.

The electronics are similar, 800 watt ducted fan motor but with a beefier Castle creations Ice 100 ESC. The battery is not quite as big only a 3 cell 3300 MAh but it is all I had, a four cell would be ideal spinning the 5X5.5 APC prop it draws about 50 amps or so. I'm not sure about the prop adapter for you motor, the HET 2W-23 (that I used) is a similar High Kv DF motor it had a 3.17 mm shaft, so I just used a 1/8 inch prop adapter. The first on was a clamp on type and it didn't work (bent the shaft) so I switched over to one with set screws. Be sure the prop is well balanced spinning at 35,000 rpm it is critical that it is perfect on that thin of a shaft.
Bottom line is it can be done with that type of setup...
