Software for calculating motor,ESC, batteries etc. for a given model

Hello my friends., Can you help me with some links for software that can help me the difficult task of calculating what motor, ESC, batteries, propellers etc. for a given model such as, for example, a Berkeley Custom Privateer?

Thanks and best wishes to all from Colombia

hi Eduardo,

I use ecalc
http://www.ecalc.ch/indexcalc.htm
click on the "prop" icon for planes

The free demo version has a limited database of motors, etc but otherwise is full featured in terms of output
but
a year long subscription is only $5 U.S. (or 99cents for a month)

I find it very good in terms of the database covering virtually all motors and it outputs a LOT of parameters, in just in terms of motor/prop/power/efficiency/overloads but also some good flight parameters.

I won't be without it.... also helps a lot to evaluate possible new and used motor purchases.

good luck

Michael

I like Motocalc, available from the site of the same name. There is a free trial download and the software is a single purchase (no yearly renewal).
