Good luck!
1150 is the biggest thing i have thats in the small catagory LOL
I have about a dozen 2200's or huge 4s
I may end up carving out room for the 2200 mah and going with a bit more in the power dept
Haven't even flown it yet but if I like it I'll probably do that and see what kind of speeds I can get out of it

on second thought I could just strap 2 800's in it ???

Mine around 220 to 220.5 MM with the 1300 mAh.

I've flown mine with 1550-2200 3S packs and not noticed a big change in CG overall.

I think I'm going to hold off on carving out more foam and going with a 2200 if it doesn't make that much differance. Like I said I haven't even flown it yet, and unfortunanly probably not going to today either . The rain is done but the wind is gusty as heck. Steady wind I can handle but its not easy to maiden anything in 20-30mph gusts

Everyone will have a different answer to those questions.

I have dual rates at something like 60% & 100%, with about 40% expo on all surfaces and both rate settings.

After flying you can adjust accordingly to your tastes...

So it officail, the tiger motor is well.......Junk in my opinion. Finally got around to a maiden and absolutely love the popwing. Bench tested it prior to to flight and with a 25c 3s pack and using a 7x5E prop it pull 90 Watts at 8 amps with no issues. With that beeing said, pack # 4 flight the motor locked as if it overamped. CRASH and a nose job, pissed but easily fixxed with welders glue. Put the motor back on the meter with the same settup and its pulling 14A and cuts out after WOT for 10-15 seconds. I set it aside for a rewind at a later date. Put an Emax Cf 2822 on it using the same prop and batteries and it friggin ripps. Balanced out a bit better and has a ton more power. I love it, NOW
just my 2 cents but save your self some headaches junk the T-motor right out of the gate and use something else.
Otto

I'll post info on the T-motor after a rewind

What motor is that exactly? The stock motor for the larger Popwing?

If so, I've got at least two dozen flights on my stock motor (2208 1370Kv) swinging a 7x6 prop and it's been great. Not blazing fast, but probably 55-60mph flat and level.

Next for mine will be a 2210 or 2212 in the 2000Kv range...

I'm pretty sure this setup will get this thing moving pretty fast..... Any suggestions out there on how to configure the CG since its a much heavier setup then the "recommended"???

Thanks all,

Sonny, the CG doesnt change. You balance it at the same point no matter what the weight is at the end of the build.

Yes Sir that exact motor. Maybe I got a lemon ,dunno. I do know that 4 packs deep it cooked something inside. And it rocks with the 2822 Emax motor. Like I said I will eventually find the issue when I dig into it to do a rewind.

I am going to try out a differant setup soon....prob this http://www.graysonhobby.com/catalog/...mbo-p-414.html

Or maybe thier supermegajet although it would take a solid 2200+ mah pack to balance out that heavy of a motor (76g) it would haul A##

Just had an issue with the emax motor aswell. I do believe I have a bad RX and am experiencing my first encounters with Brown outs. Range tested it and its all over the place??? 1 time it will work to 30 paces b4 cuttout then the next try I only make it 10-12 paces b4 it looses signal, and won't re connect till I'm standing on top of it again. So I may have to retract my first statement about the T-motor, time and testing will tell???

Syner please keep us posted, I really want to try it aswell but your the guinea pig for now LOL
