Killer Chaos electric conversion
I just put the first flights on my Bridi Killer Chaos this morning, after 2 weeks of effort.
First off, the Killer Chaos has a 62" wingspan, 57" length, 700 sq. in. of wing area. With the Supre Tigre G90 and long, tuned muffler, the empty weight was 7.5 lbs. 8.25 lbs. fueled. It was a good, fast airplane. But messy.
The new equipment includes a Rimfire .80 brushless motor, Castle Talon 90 ESC, Arm-Safe port, 3-blade 12 x 8 propeller and (initially) an Align 6S 22.2v 5200 mAh 65C LiPo battery. All up weight is now 7 lbs. 4 oz.
I put the first lights on it this morning and I am ecstatic. The performance is the same as the nitro setup and the battery checked out at 71% capacity remaining after 5 minutes flights, including aggressive aerobatics. And, everything runs lukewarm!
I plan to replace the 5200 mAh battery with some Pulse 3300 mAh 65C batteries, thus saving another 7 ounces of weight, yet will probably be able to safely pull 6 or 7 minute flights.
It might be hard to see in the photo, but the motor is now fully cowled.
