Some motor help please
Hi there, I need some motor advice/ help for all you out the with a motor/prop/ amp calculator .
I pulled my Plettenberg HP 220/15 A1 P6 with a 71 gearbox out of an old 7 cell LMR. I would like to use it in my new 3 meter ALES plane. Can some one give a good starting point prop and amp wise for 2 and 3 cells packs? Maybe even a four cell if that's what it takes. Thanks, Ed 




What prop did it use for LMR in the past, and what was the current?








Ed,
Here is a link to the new eCalc. It does list some Plettenberg motors. http://www.ecalc.ch/motorcalc.htm?ecalc&lang=en Easy enough to plug in numbers and get results. Worth a try. It's free. Preston 



Ed,
I'd try a 3S 65C battery if you intend to use this for ALES. Then shoot for 125150 watts per pound for whatever you are going to put it in. This should get you a good climb rate for ALES. If you need more, then 200 watts per pound. JT
