Just a little slow for my liking.

I replaced the motor with http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ion_29mm_.html

Now it does about 140mph same prop and 3300mah 4s battery

Hi guys,
Also thinking about good motorset for my first Funjet, already have experience in RC planes 5 years.
Interested to get 200+km\h speed with 4S battery and FPV gear. If possible 10 min flight time and hand launching.
Please advice the better choice available from HK Global WH.
Now look at 2 options:
1)Dr Mad Thrust 3000kv 1300w - 194g, Hobbyking YEP 100A
2)Dr Mad Thrust 3300kv 1100w - 138g, HobbyKing YEP 80A
Is there any good other motors, please advice.
And which battery are good to feed this setup?

Thanks, Alexey.

Both those motors will work but you would need to go to 3s if you are looking for 200 kph ( ~ 124 mph) and a 6x4 or 6x5.5 prop.

4s will push a lot more but would probably exceed the ratings of your ESC on such high kv motors...

Hi Jacko,

I think I see the cam right in the nose.....nice.

It'll be interesting to see how the pitote tube install/readings compare to Doppler or radar.


Wish you the best,

G.

OK, so today, I was on fire and flying my (red, white & blue) 'Mule' like a hooligan...

Predictably, however, I got a bit over-confident & smacked into a steel post at 65mph at the end and destroyed it!

I have a new FJU kit, and just need a motor, as I managed to recover most components except the motor which vanished into the undergrowth..

Can anyone recommend a good motor that is light, powerful, but ok for 2900mah 3S with 3S ?

If 87 grams is ok, NTM 2836-3000 kv is great (only ntm I like), 60a esc recommended minimum.
Just depends what you mean by "light," otherwise jump to a HET or similar

That's a tad more than I was after, Rdimand, so am going for a H2218 2500kv, only 67 g.

Thanks for the info though.
