Default Giant Scale electric conversions?

Who's got an electric Giant?



This is my 88" Extreme Flight Yak 54. Power comes from a Hacker A60-18L, Hacker Master Spin 99 OPTO ESC, Xoar 24x12 PJN, and Turnigy 12s2p 5000 30c packs. Get about 6 minutes of fun out of it. All Hitec gear.

What you got?

5700 watts at WOT and I get about 5 1/2 min flight time. Everything is just slightly warm after a flight. 30% left in the packs.

Here's my 3.2 metre Turboporter glider tug. Weighs around 16kg and has Hacker Q80-6L on 12S 10,000mAh to give around 7000 Watts. Tows a glider to 1000' in less than a minute.

There are whole forums dedicated to giant scale airplanes in general as well, but not everybody cruises around some of those websites
