Zagi Fixx Motor Replacement

You might try one of the IPS-Dual motor setups, because it doesn't require any modification to the airfram other that trimming the elevons a little. (Bigger prop) One of my buddies did this motor...

Speed 300 Brushless

I suggest looking at the Hacker B20-22S motor, or one of the Mini AC bl motors from www.hobby-lobby.com

The stock motor will be fine if all you're gonna do is hovering and some forward flight but...

Astro .020 Brushless

The DD version is a Speed 400 replacement...though geared it should work fine. Depending on whether or not its an older sensored version will determine whether or not you can add a GB to it. If you...

Top Flite Cessna 182

I'd take a look at the Hacker B50 XL series of motors, running 20-24 cells. I don't know the exact motor wind you'd want, you might call up Hacker Brushless USA and see what input they have.

Is my Motor Temp to High?

The speed 300 motors don't like 8 cells, they dont' last long on 8 unless you do a lot of throttle maneagement. At 4.5:1 gear ratio you should be able to run a larger prop, perhaps an 8 x 6 or 9 x 5....

brushless mega on geardrive

A geared Mega if propped properly will end up being more efficient than a dd motor. Get a really hot motor, gear it deeply running a big prop and you'll have a wonderful setup.

mega acn 22/20/2

I wouldn't run it at 2.3:1 with 10 cells and that prop.

If you want to run 10 cells, I'd run it at 3.75:1 or 4:1 and run a 14 x 7 prop. This will give you plenty of thrust. I ran this setup on my...

Dc-6.....

Personally what I'd do on something like that is use 4 geared Speed 400s, geared about 3:1, swinging probably about a 9" prop.

For wiring, I'd wire them in two banks, on two ESC's. The left...

Graupner Terry

A plane without a spar to take the tension and compression loads is bound to fail.

Electric prop and motor question.

On a speed 400 motor I would only run 10 cells on a 7.2 volt motor, not a 6 volt motor, otherwise you may burn it up prematurely.

Brushless... worth the money?

Every ElectriCub I've seen was on 8 cells and they all flew very well. Don't worry about the weight of 2 extra cells. The extra power output will offest the weight gain.

Help with Hacker speed control

Perhaps its overheating, even though you aren't getting close to the current rating. Just a thought.

Designing 3D Limited Production Run airplane

with 5 of the little sub micro servos, you'd probably draw too much current for most BEC's on the ESC's to handle. You'd need to find one rated to about 2 amps.

Why foam and glass, keeping it to...

What would you guys with previous experience be the cause of most of the crashes? Pilot inexperience? Unstable designs? etc...?
