ok,

I don't know what motor goes in first ......

I fried almost 3 of the MPJet 25/25-26 MK2, I have the LEHNER 1020-14 and the LEHNER 1020-12, and the Himax with 5300 rev/V.

The LEHNERs are doing very well in the MIG-15 and Huckebein.

Now I think I will give a chance to the Himax .... but I can change easily the edf at the field .....

The LEHNER 1020-12 is drawing 22A from KOKAM 2050 3s1p!

Much better than cruising at 14Amps .......

Can that alfa fan survive 220 watts with that 1020-12?
I think the vasa -55 might be better for high power option.

Alfa F86

Hi Guy's, does anyone know if the Thunder Power 3S 2100
and 3S 1900 packs will fit into the Alfa F86?
Is The Brushless motor that Hobby Lobby recommends a good all around motor? I was thinking the Himax 2025-4200 or the Hacker B20-18L or even a 12L? I am going to use a Phoenix 35 ESC with whichever motor I pick.
Thanks Guys and I will shoot pics and keep reading this thread.
Thanks Joe

Fuselage mod...

I made a little modification on the fuse.I reinforce its side with very thin ply (.4mm)very light (7 grams) I weight it before I install it so I know my weight penalty with it.I also put a triangle stock on both sides of the fuse to reinforce the ply where the screw holds the wings cause it might break at that point.

The LEHNER 1020-12 delivers 580g thrust at 3s1p.
LEHNER's motor rev are the rev mesured with full load. Most other motor builders mesured their rev without load! That's a big difference.
