    HACKER 200

    Anyone using a Hacker 200 in their 40% planes. I am thinking of pulling my DA-150 in my Radiowave and trying a Hacker 200?

    RE: HACKER 200

    OK, as nobody else has replied yet, I will.
    I have never used a Hacker A200, so I can't comment on that particular motor.
    But I use a Plettenberg Predator 37/6 in a 3.2 meter (126") wingspan own designed IMAC model.
    Equipment used is Jeti SPIN 300 ESC, 12s batteries. Engel 30x14 or 30x16 propeller at about 6000 rpm.
    Initially flew with 12s18Ah (3x6Ah Turnigy Nano-Tech) at 18.5 kg (40.7 lbs) flying weight. Performance was good but battery capacity marginal for two large IMAC Advanced sequences. (Old packs nearing the end of their service life.)
    Later changed to 12s24Ah (3x8Ah Turnigy Nano-Tech) at 19.7 kg (43.3 lbs) flying weight. Excellent performance and plenty capacity for IMAC Advanced.
    Electrics definitely works for large scale aerobatics, particularly if the airframe itself is light weight.
    Good charging equipment is mandatory, though.

    Regards,
    Magne

    RE: HACKER 200

    Thank you for the information.

    I was just curious to see how many people were currently flying large IMAC type planes on BIG electric stuff.

    I don't fly IMAC but have friends that do. I hear from them that many judges look down on models that don't sound like IMAC planes.

    RE: HACKER 200

    If that is the case, and the scores they give reflect it, then they are bad judges.
    All other things equal, a quite electric plane should have an advantage due to the sound score/bonus system.
