o yeah i forgot to say i love the noise of the 1811 its a little screamer aint it, i could not believe how much power it had for something so tiny(ive lost it more than once lol), i want to use it for a little 3D plane or a mini hotliner,im gonna try for 100g or under and it should be like
off a shovel at that weight. or maybe the 12in f22 if im not dreaming that there are 12in plans
I have some extra 3mm here from my f15 build I try to build another f22 this week. Measured the bare f15 airframe and it weight only around 45g.
Managed to pop in a 2S 610mAh lipo and it dropped the weight to about 150g and boy it screams...
I guess most of the weight is now on the foam and 5min epoxy I used.
I also like the sound of that 1811, sounds like a mad dental drill.
