Default 4 engine models - E-10 for power - Max Weight?

Just wanted to know if anyone has experience flying a 4 engine model with the E-Flite E-10 motor.

My question is how much do the models weigh?

What would be the maximum weight of the model if you were flying a quad with the E-Flite E-10.

I am considering a 96" Profile scale B-29 and need to know if the E-10's would be enough power. I expect the model to weigh 12 lbs complete with batteries.

Thanks
Fred C.

Well according to MotoCalc, the 10 on 3S lipo with say a 9x6 prop, would pull 25 amps, develop 2 pounds of thrust, and have a prop speed around 60 mph.

So x 4, you would need packs capable of handling 1000+ amps. But you would be fine thrust, and I'd say decent scale looking speed.

Let's call that 100A+... it would need a huge battery to generate "1000+ amps"
