Dual setup?

Nikos,

I agree with your calc... looks like a winner. There is just one problem. The Scorpion S3020-14 is a 38mm diameter motor and the Orion nose is 38mm OUTSIDE diameter. Bummer! Plus, the motor wires have to find a home.

Another thought is that on 1600 mAh the motor run would be short, very short for a warmliner.

Having looked at a lot of power systems I ended up with that described in Post #301, herein. What makes aircraft design such fun is all of those bloody compromises... sometimes a bit frustrating though.

Good luck!

Dick
