RE: Looking for a 3D plane

You'll have a hard time finding a 40 size "scale" 3d plane that has enough power with a 46fx. Ya - profiles don't look all that great but they have it where it counts....

RE: Confused with Accu-Cycler Elite

I think the high capacity JR rx packs are larger than AA cells - subC nicd and nimh maybe? Anyway, the accucyle will give you a reasonable estimate of a charge rate when you enter the capacity in mah...

RE: please explain how lipo's get charged?

so it does put in nearly the full 10,000? Is that right 10,000? thats big. Anyway, when you get to the max voltage while charging lipos (in this case 8.4V) you're usually around 90% full. So if you...

RE: Linkages, Horns, EZ-connectors, Z-bends Etc.

I like the EZ connectors also but I once tried for 45 minutes to get that #(*@&$*(@#$ metal clip on and just couldn't do it! What's the secret???

RE: best battery to use on gws mustang

For a long time it seemed that the Himax 2025 motor was the hot setup - 4200kv version most typical. Then the outrunners came - I like the axi 2212/20 and hacker a20 - Hacker comes with all the...

RE: What is the point of giant elecrtrics?

I think its just some people like the challenge and don't mind the cost (so much).

I feel the same way about 40 year old muscle cars that cost a few grand but people spend 50 grand to restore...

RE: ARF Trainer

I've seen a couple guys in the club who were out of practice a bit rave about the World Models Sky Raiders - there's a high and low wing one. They're really cheap, like 70 bucks, and fly well.

RE: Does this motor/speed control/batt combination sound right?

That will work but is a load of power for that plane... If you're used to fast powerful planes though it should be real fun. Only thing is at that weight it won't come in for the floaty landing. I...

RE: Is it enough for my lipo?

What capacity battery are you considering? All the worry about the battery might be better directed at that motor. With the 3700kv model you really aren't going to be able to be past 10 amps ever....

RE: Axi or Hacker?

They're probably pretty close on efficiency but I've read a number of opinions stating that the Hacker can handle a bit more watts. I really like my axi but I now have 3 hackers because they give you...

16 gauge wire is bigger than 20 gauge wire so you're fine there.

that amount of amps possible out of a battery has nothing to do with what the motor will take... when setup properly, your motor...

RE: Aiptek Mini PenCam

RE: WHAT MOTOR SYSTEM FOR NEW ELECTRIC KIT?

That's a 7.4V nominal (8.4 full charge) pack with 2 cells versus an 11.1V nominal (12.6v full charge) 3 cell pack.. with electrics think of volts as rpm so the 2 cell pack would spin the prop much...
