What packs are you planning on running on that Steve? How are they going to mount? I've been considering building my backup Mojo 60 as an electric. I have four 3S2P 4000mah TP Prolites and a Feigao 540L13 with a 5.2 planetary box or a 4130/16 AXI. I don't think the voltage on 6S is enough for the AXI and 12S is too much.
I was thinking of putting boxes in the wing to where they could slide in the LE and be held in with a Velcro strap.
later,,,Matt

6s on that Axi with a 17-18" prop and a 70 amp controller and I'm betting you'll change your mind about 6s not being enough.

I reran the numbers in Motocalc with the AXI on 6S. I was looking at pitch speed the first time and it was very low. I discounted for that reason. But considering this plane was never meant to really fly with any speed, It would probably be just fine. I figured it would end up about 150 watts/pound on the Axi, closer to 170watts/lb on the Feigao. The downside to the AXI is that you have to cut up the nose to mount it. With the Feigao, I can build the plane stock with the exception of the battery boxes and go back to glow if I don't like it on E-power.

I contacted Hobby Lobby about doing the Mojo 60 with an Axi a while back and the routed me to this page and told me that this would be 'the' ticket for the Mojo.

I would say your on target and 150 w/lb is a no joke setup by any mean's, it's a flat out nice setup in fact!!

Matt, here is my setup:
Axi 4130-16
Apc 15-8 E prop
Jeti 77 opti ESC
PolyQuest 8s2p 4200 MAH lipo ( 2 packs of 4s2p wired series)
Ultimate BEC ( been told not to use this so im gonna do a 700 NIMH 6v Pack on RX
1200 Watts @ 40 amps at half throttle
1750 watts @ 64 amps wide open
The power is insane! I have ordered a couple polyquest 3s2p to lower the voltage and save 1/4 pound weight thats
gonna make a 7s2p pack i think this will be perfect. Funny thing about Hobby Lobby webpage is the watts/amps/props
they say you can use are nowhere near what the manufacturers manual specs say you can use.
Thats funny you mention a slide in cartridge, i thought that exact same thing but i just couldnt figure out a good
way to do that. I am also worried that the weight of those batteries are gonna come shooting out the wing on a bumpy
landing, luckily i dont have those
Its close to done now, dunno if i will be able to get it ready for Omaha though[&o]

I think you are better off with either 7S or 8S. I think it will work with 6S, it just won't have the performance we have come to expect out of our profiles. Weather permitting, tomorrow I'm going to test fly my E-Burrito loaded down to 6lbs just to check the vertical performance of my Feigao motor. Have you got an all up estimated weight of your Mojo?

The mojo is damn near ready. All thats left is mounting the batteries and hatches! And a couple of stickers.

Here are my new numbers
6 pounds 6 oz with 6s2p & 850 watts/38 amps Wide open
6 pounds 10 oz with 7s2p & 1250watts/50 amps wide open
both these are with the same 15-8 prop i was running on the 8s2p. Im certain the 6s needs more prop and might be close to the 7p when proped up. I do not have a 16"
prop to test unless i use a regular 16" glow prop. It feels very powerful I think its gonna rock!
