Default AeroWorks ProX260 .60-.90 electric conversion

I have a Prox and I'm thinking about converting it to electric, but I'm getting alittle lost. I wanna do this cheap, I don't need the plane and I decided to just give it a try. I'm and electrical designer by trade and I understand dc motors, but I could use alittle help deciding on a cheap setup for 3d fun.

I found a Turnigy G110 Brushless Outrunner 210kv for a decent price, any thoughts?

Have you no shame?


to details - you need 250w input power per plane pound for 3d. The prox260 is supposed to weigh 7lb all up... That translates to 2000w (I am giving here a 'freebie' 250w for fudge factor).


You should be ok with a 5065-270 motor (which gives you another 200w fudge factor). SK3 5065 from HK are ok motors and good for the money. Not great, but ok... You will need a 6S battery for it. Probably something like an 80A esc...
