RE: Kontronic Brushless Set 600 - Conversions

Nice Greg! Since flying that plane in G2 (electrified), I have wondered how she'd really handle a conversion. Got video? :)

RE: Full size sailing

I'm just getting started in full-scale sailing. I have flown RC planes for several years now, but since I was a kid, I have been fascinated by the sailboats I saw along the Gulf coast. About a year...

RE: PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!

How heavy will the plane be? I need specifics. I have an indoor plane that will hover on a 12x6 prop and a brushed speed 300 motor, but it weighs next ot nothing.

RE: Electric to glow

You can get Speed 400 "sized" brushless motors that when geared, such as a Hacker, that can put out a serious amount of power, especially when geared.

RE: Seagull PC-9 ARF conversion to electric.

A 45/3, in general, works well as a .40 replacement.

The numbers are rough, but here is what Motocalc had to say... (I made some assumptions on weight, such as a 60-ounce empty airframe,...

RE: MPlex TwinStar Recommendation

It was a little more sluggish with the gear, but I prefer to say that it was more "scale-like". The main thing is to keep the mods light. I started with heavier plastic/rubber wheels, but when I...

RE: New to sailing, a few questions

On very small boats, such as the 24" Sunrise, a standard servo works fine. On larger boats, a much stronger servo is needed to pull in the sails. One standard-sized servo, the HS-425...

RE: MPlex TwinStar Recommendation

You should try 4-bladed VarioProps. If you are using a speed 400 6v, use the 5.2" long set to 3" pitch. If you are using the s400 7.2v. you can use the 5.8" props set to 3" pitch. They worked well...

RE: Brushless Twin - ESC configuration question
