Hey guys as I'm having so much fun with my new Balsa USA North Star that converted to Electric
I got this big bird doing a little over 100mph with my T600 880kv with 6s 5000mah 40c and 12x12
So I know some have converted this bird to EDF running 2 of the above 6s lipos
So what I'm thinking of getting 2 of these motors an put one in the rear as stock and then cut the nose off for the 2nd motor.
As I'm getting around 12 pounds of thrust with just one of these motors and a prop speed of 160mph.
As the NorthStar is not that arrowdaymic I think with 2 of these motors this bird would screem
Yes I know some have converted this bird to EDF, and 1 I know of that just used one electric motor as a pusher but the motor was $$$ as most electic motors that can spin a 16in prop have low KV so it's hard to get the RPM wanted
So question: With one prop in front and the second inline behind it, would the second prop be effected by the one in front?
Should I run more pich on the rear prop?
I'm in the planning stage as I already have:
The plane, 6 pairs of the 6s 5000mah 40c Lipos, the ECS's
Thanks for advice. Mike
