Default RE: jump to brushless

If you go to brushless you will have to change to a brushless esc.

Here are a couple of possibilities. I based this on a 3-cell 3700 mah Li-Poly of 20C or better. you could use from 2500 to 3700 mah. Flight times with a 3700 would be around 15 minutes or so. Maybe more.

Hacker A30-16L
40 amps
10 x 6 prop
62 oz thrust
59 mph prop speed

HiMaxx HC3522-990
43 amps
11 x 8 prop
65 oz thrust
64 mph prop speed

You will need a 45 amp speed control for either. This would give you more thrust than weight and you could also use either system in another plane when you graduate from trainers.

Let me know if this sounds right to you.
