Default Electric Vendetta

I just finished watching the video of the Electric Vendetta. Wow. I am not familiar with the model or the manufacturer. Could some one fill me in. I would also like info on the electric conversion { motor , battery, prop, amps, run time etc} if you wouldn,t mind. Thank you.

G'day Mad Townn,

The aircraft is a Lyle Larson, QM40 Vendetta used for QM40 pylon racing. It can be found on this site :-

www.calspeedpros.com/Q40.htm

Not sure on the power plant side of things, but there is plenty of guys that I am sure will chip in.

If you are after more info on the airframe, have a look in the pylon forums as well.


Tony.

p.s. I do know the motor is branded NEU buts thats about it

Do a search a couple pages back and you'll see a whole thread on it. I believe it was "electrified Vendetta"
It'll answer all your ?'s and more

He's running a Neu 1515/2Y (this thing is a monster) off of a 9s2p lipo pack (6 3S 20c 2100mah packs). Controller is a High Voltage Hacker 135amp. 7.4x8 prop.

Not sure about runtime, but I'm guessing close to 8 min with throttle control. This is the plane that inspired me to build my 200mph Nemesis. I'm running less power on a more aerodynamic airframe. I would have loved to build a Q40 like this one, but couldn't afford it. It won't be long before you see some faster F3D planes with similar power systems.
