I was flying my old Robinhood 80 (13pounds) on a Monster Power 160 on 6s. Yes 6s with a APC-E 20x15 prop in order to use a cheap non HV esc. Batteries are two Turnigy 6s 3000mah 20c ($29 each) in parallel for 6000mah.

Great scale like and sport like flying for dirt cheap!

Believe it or not, the 160 is a great motor with that combination of cells and prop. If you have a 10 pound or less airplane with the prop clearance it would be even more fun.

I have since put a 26cc gasser on the airplane.

I am going to try the monster power 60 on my 1/4 scale RV-4 from Great Planes it is almost equivalent to the Rimfire 1.20 that is suggested for that airplane. It is also less than half the price of the rimfire.

Here is a video that gave me the idea of using the motor in that configuration. I corresponded with the guy to make sure I wasn't reading incorrectly.......... MP 160, 6s, 20x15 prop.

This is listed in the comments on the YT page.
This model weighs 14lbs, has 83" wingspan. Flying with an Exceed R/C Monster Power 160, on 6s5000mah. Turning a 20x15 APC electric prop, at about 4400rpm. Putting out just under 1000watts(about 978watts)

Can get about 7-8 min flight time.

Electric Midwest AT-6 (3 min 41 sec)
