PZ Visionaire with omega 130g

I have a spare omega 130 motor I'm thinking of putting in my visionaire. I know I'll have to upgrade the esc, but does anyone have any thoughts on how it might do. Planning on swinging a 14x7 apc. Any ideas would be welcomed.

Probably way overkill for that airplane. My $0.02 says to keep the airplane with the power system it has. You might find yourself having to strengthen the nose of the fuselage to handle the power.

Why not post in the Visionaire thread ?

On 3s the 130g with an APC 13x6.5 would have less power than the stock VA and could use the stock ESC. I haven't tried a 14x7, but I'm sure it would be up around 45 to 50 amps and perhaps a bit more. You would want at least a 50 Amp ESC. I measured the stock setup with a good battery at over 42 Amps and about 440 watts.

Clearance with the 14x7 will be marginal too.

Eventually I want to run a 130g or Torque 2814 in my VA. When I do it will be with 4s and a 12x6.

Quite a few VA owners have run 4s setups and I'm yet to hear of any durability issues.
