Here’s a “What works list” for an economical way to fly a 40ish plane on 12 cells/ two RC Car “Six Packs” (about 33 amps, 6 minutes plus duration w/2000s):

Jeti 35 (350) ESC – 12 cells & BEC:

Propeller APC “E” 13x10:

Trinity Maxx Mild (not the Wild!):

When brushes are needed do this,
Brush upgrade to 5x5:

Spare armature:

Gearbox -- 3.5:1:

Master Airscrew Gearbox:

Great Planes Gearbox:
Pinion required – 13T 48 pitch



Always best to buy Sanyo you can see:

Something cheap like this might work; I flew an E-Maxx boxed set of 2000 packs that were supposed to be Sanyo, they flew like Duratrax Sanyos:

I’ve flown the red, white, and blue plane below with the above; Global’s 56” American Flyer a heavy .40 ARF. The other are my other 40 ARF conversions, see my gallery:
