Dual setup?

Hi guys,

I am thinking of ordering an Orion and have been doing some thinking on the power setup. I would like to fly this ship both as a warmliner and a TD. In order to achieve this, I need the ability of a wide range of amperage and weights.

I am thinking along the following lines: use a motor around 150g that should be able to produce around 30A with a small battery (1300 - 1600 mAh, 3s if possible), but could also produce much more wattage with a heavier 4s battery.

This range of wattage (350 to 800-900) seems to rule out a lot of motors discussed in this thread. The only combination I have come up with is an outrunner (Scorpion S 3020-14 at 931 Kv, 150g) that would fit nicely with a 12x8 folding prop. The calculator says it will draw around 35A on 3s and around 55A on 4S.

So, any input on the idea in general? If you think the idea is plaussible, do you have any other setup to propose?

I would be grateful for any input.
