Then decide what size battery you want to use (number of cells). Then what sort of speed you want to fly at. Then how much you want to pay. When you get that sorted out there will still be dozens (at least) of motor/prop combinations that could meet your requirements. Steve

yes i mean 1000 grams an i wan to use 3cell lipo, i dont want to go top speed or i just want to cruise around.

 Jul 19, 2011, 11:05 AM Registered User Staffs, UK Joined Nov 2003 8,775 Posts 1000g of static thrust can potentially fly an aircraft up to about 3000g in weight. If the plane only weighs 500g it will hover and/or take off vertically. Steve

The prop database there will show you a bunch of props. Pick the ones you might want to use and you can see the thrust to RPM graph for it and also, below that, the motor that produced the data for the chart.

Thrust, painted with a broad brush, is merely a measurement of how hard a plane will climb.

If we had a plane that weighed, say, 1 pound, or 16 ounces.... and our motor/prop combo was able to develop 12 ounces of thrust, we would have enough to do some nice climbouts, and enough to do some mild aerobatics.

If our motor/prop combo could develop 16 ounces of thrust, then the climbouts would be even steeper, and since we are developing the same thrust as the plane's weight, we could maybe get it to almost 'hover'.

And if the motor/prop combo developed say 32 ounces of thrust (twice the plane's weight) then it would have enough power to climb vertically right out of sight.

This is just a simple explanation, but there's really no sense in flooding you with a bunch of technical terms that you'll be learning in the future.... all in good time...

One of the things that you can see for each prop there at flybrushless.com is the input power, RPM, and thrust at various RPMs. And, generally speaking, any motor that can give you the same RPM will give you the same thrust but also needs to have that same input power (or more than that if it is attaining that RPM at partial throttle).
