Default help regarding power setup



hi</p>

i'm converting a nitro plane to electric and need help with configuring the power and parts</p>

the plane is <span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">mig</span>-27 foam model covered with fiber glass. weight is about <span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">10lb</span> empty</p>

as this is kind of a pig in the sky <span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">1.8X1.7Meter</span> i want it to fly as long as possible</p>

for the moment the only information i found on net was this setup:</p>

motor - <span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">hextronik</span> <span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">hxt63-64b</span> (<span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">280kv</span>)</p>

<span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">batt</span> - <span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">6s</span> - which is good cause i already have 2 of those</p>

prop - <span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">20X8</span> - as my plane at the moment has no landing gear i thought about <span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">graupner</span> cam folding prop</p>

amp - 38.5</p>

thrust - <span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">6kg</span> - which is kind of low for my plane (i guess)</p>

</p>

any help regarding power setup will be much appreciated as i'm kind of new to the <span class="squiggly" title="To see spelling suggestions, click this word">diy</span> part of this great hobby and up until now i only had rtf planes</p>

It might help if you put your request in the glow to electrics forum!

well your plane will not fly at those power settings if they are correct as you described. its only about 1900 watts you need a bigger prop or one with more pitch. now you will not be able to get that plane to fly much over 30 minutes as heavy it is. you need a better plane to fly longer.
