Default Mini Katana motor setup

Hey guys,

Since there are just ENDLESS threads going on about the mini katana, it's hard deciding which power setup I want to use so I think doing a poll is going to be a little more helpful.

So I am going to be running PQ 1800 3c (20C) and 2100 batteries. And I am flying at about 10 ft above sea level plus flying altitude... (lol)
I am looking for just under 1/2 throttle hover and 8-9 minute flights with the 1800, if possible, if not oh well...

I do want to stay in a outrunner style.

Default RE: Mini Katana motor setup

Ok, I fly mine on a Torque 2830/1095. Hovers at or just under half on a PQ 1800, and has ballistic vertical. I get 10 min. flights, non-stop 3D. 15 if I just do circles, but that's boring. Use a 11x4.7SF for hovering stability, 11x5.5E for better vertical, but it's really hard to hover with. Go with the 2818 if you don't mind adding extra weight (just an ounce does make a significant difference on the plane though). It hovers and KEs better with the 12x6SF people run with the 2818.
