What plane for a turnigy sk3 5055 430 kv?

Hi
i have a brand new turnigy sk3 5055 430 brushless motor and I'd like install it om my next 3d Plane.
Based on 6s lipo, I'm thinking between Aeroplus Edge 540 20 CC 1,70 meter wingspan and extreme flight MXS 64.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks john

the motor is too big and KV too low for MXS 64. May work on the Aeroplus edge 67-in with a 18X8 prop on 6S, also take a look at Eflit Beast 60E, Sbach 342 60E and 3DHS 65in Vyper.

mxs for sure

the low kv means the big prop needed for 7.5 pound plane will kill the motor (6mm shaft)

you still may kill the motor on the mxs with the 16 8 it takes to fly well but you are not pushing the motor as hard. i hear power on spinning moves are how you get the big gyroscopic loads. but get the mxs.

plus you get a rad flying plane for sure with tons of people to ask setup questions.

I use this motor in my GP Escapade 61 with a 16x12 prop and in my Phoenix Model Extra 330S with a 17x10 prop. I use 6S 4000/5000 lipos in both models.

Boys..thanks for your precious help.
I'll go to Aeroplus EDGE 540 20 CC 1.70 meter on 6S.

I'd like to put the brand new Hobbywing Platinum 100A-V3 ESC capable to supply up to 25A or the HV no BEC, In this last case I can use Castle Creation BEC 10 A.

Any other tips?

the hobbywing 100A V3 is a good ESC, I don't see any problem.
