5400 or 4800 p3 f16

don, going to get a motor for dads day, im looking at the 5400 or 4800 for a p3 f-16. can you tell me where to look for speeds i can expect on 4 cells for both motors with the stock fan, which is a xf correct?

also im a little confused as to the needed plug as the text seems to say none are needed, but the options show a plug for xf/ eflight, did i miss something here?

thanks for the info and cool sale!

chuck.

If you are going stock fan go the 5400 then you can fly 3S or 4S. 3S will be like "stock" power and 4S will be more. If you still have the factory rotor adapter then you can use it, I give people the option to buy a XF/Eflite adapter as some have bad factory adapters or loose them.

I've got a Don's 5400 on the stock fan in my P3 F16 and it's a screamer on 4S.

I'm using a 4S 2200 mah 25C Tenergy pack. I don't have an accurate idea of it's speed, but in comparison to a few jets at the field, it's faster than a 5S Habu (stock fan/motor) and a good bit faster than a HL F-86 with a Don's 4800 on 3S. It's perhaps a bit slower than an Alpha A-4 with a Don's 4800 on 4S and about on a par with a 4S AMX A-1.

A 4S2200 is a commonly used pack. I have dopplered them at 95-100 mph, depends if you reduce the outlet nozzle diameter down.

don and dave , thanks for the additional info. 100 mph would be great . should just the 4 cell taileron upgrade be the only needed mod as i sure like to keep em light.

happy dads day to all,

chuck.

Getting ready to order the 5400 for a 4s on a 40amp ESC... this will be good, yes? (with stock fan)
Also, aside from CF bracing on the taileron attach points, is there anything else i need to do to this bird to make her hold up to the speed I will get out of that setup?
Also, where in the fuse is the best point to place the fan unit, for CG, so I caan fly both 3s2200 and 4s2200?

Thanks!
Matt
