Sweet spot?

Well...at 4.5 to 5.5 finished weight, and 200W per pound, I think between 900W and 1100W would be pretty sweet. I'm at about 1000W and the plane has respectable pull out of a hover. It's pretty fast on the 16x8 I run, and I'm only on 4S....

What's your evaluation of the flight envelope on 5s? The motor I have in mind runs well on 5s or 6s.

Depends on who you are talking too... For Losifanatic, it would be about 5000 watts!!

Can't say for sure, as I had some really heavy 5S 4000mAH packs, that I had bought to also use in my 72" Sbach. The Sbach has been sold, so, I really thought those packs were too heavy, so, I sold them and have some 5S 45C 3850mAH Thunder Power packs, ordered..... So, my Edge has yet to be maidened. And....i am going t be using a Hacker A50-14XS, which should have a lot of power....It can swing a 15X8 or 16X7 prop!!

OK, thanks. Let us know what you think after a few flights.

58" Edge, 59" Slick, and big gassers

If guys reduce their throw a little bit or have a middle rate for elevator this can be reduced. As far as being able to perform big smooth maneuvers, on low rates, this plane will keep up with my slick 1 for 1 and nearly as good as my big gassers.
Were you comparing the 58" Edge to the 59" Slick? What big gassers were you comparing the 58" Edge to?

I have the 87" Extra SHP on 12s with the recommended Hacker motor. For longer flight times I'm thinking about converting it to gas with a DA 60 or DA 70. What is your recommendation for an engine for the 87" SHP?

Q80-8M...... More efficient than the "recommended" Hacker motor...

With proper throttle management, I bet you would get longer flights than with the A60-18L....but no, not as long as with gas....that is true...

what is proper throttle management? I'm just talking about the usual mix of 3D and precision that is sort of the middle ground for many here.

and no, I had both motors, flight times were the same.

been waiting to use this for a while hahahahaha



but on a serious note...what did you find the difference (if any) was? Did you feel like the q80 had more power with the same flight time, it was smooth, or anythign at all? considering a 50cc electric in the near future

Hotay.....I haven't had both motors, so, I would have though that as hot as I have been told the A60-18L ran compared to the Q80, that the Q80 would have gotten a bit longer flying time, as heat is just wasted energy....
