Be careful about selecting motors and ESCs. After our computers selected the best motor winds we tested all of the major manufacture's motors. The Fusion 7 is the best overall fit (power+flight time)we could find. Also the Electro-Fusion 35 speed control by Castle Creations has special programming to make it safe for use on the Corona. Most ESC do not have the appropriate programming which can lead to mechanics damages (improper acceleration/deceleration of the main rotor) or personal injury (no safety arming feature). Before substituting parts make sure the seller knows your application and can safely recommend the items.

Paul,


Have you tested the Atomic Force motor? I used it for a while and it worked great, took the plunge and purchased a Hacker C40-12S talk about smooth and no fuss.


Love you machine it really hustles.

Thats Exactly what i am putting in my Corona

A koyosho Atomic Force...I am planning on using the 4/4 Grips and a 9 tooth pinion

It's getting pretty close the flight test time....just need a couple of 7 cell packs....the ESC and the Gyro and it will be flight ready

Jason,

I do not have an Atomic Force motor, but I have talked to several people who have used it. They say they get slightly longer flight times, but do not have as much power.
Brushless motors are the best if you can afford them. Please post your experience with your brushless motor in terms of flight time and available power using a 2400 mAh nicad if possible.

There have been miles and miles of discussions about the Corona over on EZone/rcgroups also.

Hi Paul,

Let me say the Corona is an excellent helicopter to learn on and play around with. In fact several people who have seen my fly my ship at San Diego Electric flight field said they are going to purchase a unit for themselves.

I'm using a Hacker C40-12s motor with a Hacker 40P heli controller. I fly as ahard as I want to for about eight minutes on a 7 cell 2400 mah battery and still have lots left over. I don't like to push my flite times because I've found when a brushless dies it goes pretty quick. Probably only have about thirty seconds between the time you notice it's getting mushy till the time that it's dead.

As far as totall flite time I imagine I could get around 9.5 minutes if I wanted to.

I love the hacker motor it can make your heli fly like a scalded cat. Tons of power to get yourself into and out of trouble with

Say Paul have you considered coming out to San Diego for the mid winters electric show. Should be exciting and you could show off your wares. Also it would be a business expense.

Keep up the good work


Jason
