What motor/prop/battery set-up?

#6 saotome Oct 11, 2009 11:13 AM

Are they blue wonder motors? 1300kv?

#7 foam and tape Oct 11, 2009 11:17 AM

1300 Kv bluewonders with CC TB 9 esc's going into a GWS vtail mixer for diffrental throttle. They plug into channel 3 and 4 (ch 4 uses a Y-harness for the acutal rudder and diffental throttle) I don't think the actual rudder is needed since the diffrental throttle has so much pull.

Ok, that video was probably one of the most entertaining RC related videos I have watched. Maybe it was the soundtrack, I don't know.

Well done guys!

Fantastic plane and film...let me say "che figata" in Italian!!!

When do you think to release the drawings? can you add some more informations on plane like wing span, lenght, weight and so on?

those motors may work, it might not have as much power though, seeing as those are for 2S lips. the WS is 57 inches

FWIW, Check out the 2210 and 2213 motors on Hobbycity

https://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/...idProduct=8621
https://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/...idProduct=8622

These motors are cheap, powerful, and rewindable. They are pretty much double blue wonders for for about the same price as the blue wonder.

As for the video... AWESOME! I don't think the cargo would fare too well in a plane hovering on it's props and flying inverted, lol. You need to do a video of a paratrooper drop. That is the ultimate foam paratrooper dropping machine!


Edit...didn't watch the video all the way to the end to see you dropping paratroopers, lol. AWESOME!!!!
