Jezze: Definitly go for the 16/25/1.5R and the KPG25.
Use a 4S lipo and a 12x17 or 14.5x14 RFM.

Happy Thanksgiving guys

I new you would come through, thanks...
Would a DD with same motor turn good speeds?

I ordered a fee props and a folding spinner.. I'll have to see what folders fit the spinner..

Would D47 or D60 be cool in this airframe?

Yes, DD is doable with a small prop (APC 5x5 ?) and a 3S battery.
I run D60s in both my MiniHawks. Good fit!

The Kv of that motor is 3750 right? That's awfully high for direct drive in a relatively draggy high performance ship. I played around quite a bit with props from 4.5x4.1 (barely flyable) to 6x5.5 (awesome). You could probably get away with a 4.75x4.75 on 3s (perhaps comparable to 5s with the 16/25/2 2500 kv, about 1kW) if your pack can supply 100 amps or so.

My FJU sat in a field for at least 4 weeks, the Mega motor and Castle 100a esc survived the crash and the weather, even the servo's still work although the casing screws went rusty and I'm not sure I'll actually reuse the servo's but after a week in the airing cupboard the motor and esc were fine and run ok. Tested both up to around the 90a mark static but not been installed in another FJU yet. I'm confident they'll be ok though.

Naw, I'm using a 16/35/1 W/ KGP 25 in the Orange X-PLANE. I'm trying to use one battery. So the 50 might be too big

I just build one with Turnigy GliderDrive SK3 1120kV with 7.6x13 .7 folder on 4s.
Not looking to make it scream.
Something little easier than my killer 2940 TPPower 2200 kV with 5.25x6.25 on 5s.

I just want to be able to stay up in the air for more than 3 min on a days I don't bring any of my bigger planes.
I think this one will make a 10th swift built by me.
It was little difficult to fit this motor in. Had to grind away some material on inside by the vents.

Hope to try it soon.
Rob

Did you change your order with Dan?

If so, then you can run an extra cell, or run the throttle longer.
