Jeti 30/3

Just did a bench test on the 30/3 on ten cells.
42 amps with an APC 10x7 prop
using the jeti 70 controller
on 10-2400's
So..at 42 amps and 11 volts(according to Whatt Meter) thats 462 Watts..ok at 80% of that it's 370 Watts..

Sound right?

Isnt that prop a little too big? I think the reccomended one is 9x7 but I guess they can handle it from what i hear. You #'s sound right.
What controller are you using?
I got the 40 amps opto one and the 30/3 on the way (hopefully tomorrow) I was thinking of putting it in a modeltech me-109 or something of that size.
What are you using yours in?

Using the Jeti 70, good up to 70 amps.
According to Steve Neu, the motor can handle 40-45 amps for short runs..so I am going for it.
Building a Lanier Extra 3.25, 47" span. I think I will have more wood leftover than will be in the plane.

Catch Steve Neu's report on the Jeti 30/3 in the latest issue of S&E MODELER mag.

He also runs comparison tests on the CP 1300 cells, zapped and unzapped, at 20A, 30A, and 40A.
