Thanks for the extra info. I've been building less than a year now, so the more information I can get, the better.
If I could trouble the community for some more advice... A friend at work likes this design as well. He has an extra 1700KV Blue Wonder
, and is wondering if we can make that motor work with this plane. He normally runs a 7x6 on a 2s. We're wondering if that motor will swing a 6x4 on a 3s without overheating, but still have enough thrust to push the F-18.
I built mine without regard to weight. It has 5 bamboo skewers, 2 3mm carbon tube wing spars, Hot Glue, KFm2 Airfoil, and a thick coat of paint. Without electronics, it comes in at 165g.
I'm thinking if we build it light, we could probably get it closer to 150-155g.
Add on a 24G Blue Wonder, 2 x 9G servos, 14G 12A ESC, 69G 850mAh 3s.
All Up should be around 280G.
According to a review on HobbyKing, the 1700KV blue wonder should make about 345G of thrust with a 6x3, so a 6x4 so be similar, I would think...
"GWS 6x3DD: 10.82v, 5.68A, 62.3W, 12.1oz thrust"
Thrust to weight is still greater than 1:1, so It should work, right??? Am I missing anything?
