Default AXI 4130-16?

What would be a good first pattern plane for this power system-AXI 4130-16 on 6s2p lipo?

I think the pack is not strong enough for that motor, though
it will definitely work for short enough flights.

You might have a look at fliton extra 300 as its a light airframe,
and fly's native using the axi 4130.

I like espritmodel.com because he shows the airframe empty weight,
and I've bought from him a few times and he has done a good job.
Esprit also has the battery and prop data for the axi's on the site,
and there's a couple planes there that would work.

Fyi, I have an axi 4120/18 which isn't in any plane.

Hello.
According to the manufacturers specification, the motor is rated for 5-8s Li-pos, so it should be fine on 6s.
However, you would need a pack with sufficient capacity to operate at a reasonable max. current. Depending on the plane, this may be anything from 50-70A. (The motor is rated at max. 60A for 60seconds, however there is probably a safety margin on this. Good motor cooling is a must.)
Please note that the term "6s2p lipo" says nothing at all about the capacity of the pack. Could be anything from 600 mAh to 10000 mAh or more.
To use this motor to its full potential, you need a battery pack that can deliver up to 70A for short durations. Then the total capacity will determine how long flights you will get, but you should probably be looking at something in the order of 4-6000 mAh capacity.

Thank you both for your input. The power system was on a 9 plus pound plane that I crashed that had vertical capability and the pack is a Predator 5000mah capable of 50-60 amp draw. I want to fly Pattern with this system and all help is appreciated. I lost one cell when I crashed so it is now a 6 cell. I need to be around 6-7 pounds AUW.

It's not going to be 6 pounds, but the Venus 2 seems to work quite well on the 4130/16...6S and 17X8 prop. I got a chance to fly one this weekend, and it has lots of power. ...no theory here...just my opinion after having flown it....I am going to be putting together this exact combination for myself.
