Larry,

Sorry for the delay, I was away from my notes. The motor is a Neu 1107-2Y 3100 with the new 6.7 gearbox. I will probably start with a 17x8 or 17x9 and work up if it is needed. I use Vladimir offset spinner/hubs and they result in about 1/2" smaller prop diameter do you have to sort of calibrate the computer programs. Calculations indicate about 45 amps (50+C) operating amperage. I am using the old Castle Creations Phoenix 80 ESC. I vaporized one of their newer ICE 75's in a brand new plane a year and a half ago with no apparent cause and am a little gun-shy still of these things. Let somebody else prove that the ICE's are as rock solid as the older Phoenix's.

Happy Landings,

Don
