Here is my latest plane . thanks to your wonderful design once again 3DMON !!

I have enjoyed the simplicity of that build as it was with the speedy .
There couldn't be less parts to put together and still the plane looks great .
I think I copied quite a lot from your own paint job that I found on an other thread .

I am using the 1500 blue wonder with a cheapo 18A ESC and a 800 mah -3S- turnigy . AUW is about 11.6 oz .

Some static datas on that motor :

SF 8x6 : 16.2A -169W . A bit overkill for the batteries and the motor that is given for 9.5A only !! .

SF Graupner 7.5x4 : 11.4A - 122 W . I think I will stick with that prop to start . Maybe a 8x4.3 would be the best but I don't have any.

I don't know how you can use a 9x4.7 even with the 1300 kV motor.
You should pull over 16 A from your batteries and your motor is only rated for 9 A .

By the way , my 3 Speedies are still among my favorites planes . I am really having a blast with them .

This Ripper may not be as fast
