Default Conversion using Mega 16/15/3

Hi. Was wondering if anyone could tell me what pinion and what gearbox/gear ratio I could use to convert a Midwest Cherokee .40 using a Mega 16/15/3. Is this possible? Feasable?

Only if you just want to taxi.

While in theory, all electric motors are capable of infinite power, in reality the limitations of the materials used determine the maximum power a motor can handle. A Mega 16/15/3 simply cannot handle enough power to fly what is probably a 6lb plane, even with maximum cell count and current draw.

The Mega 16/15/3 is more suited to smaller planes in the 2 to 2-1/2 pound range. .15 powered conversions.
