Alfa MiG15 Bis with Don's Wicked 4800kV

Bit old now...

I changed the power system in the Alfa MiG15 from what was described earlier below after seeking more vertical performance and bigger loops. I was also warned that the old motor was probably due to let the smoke out any time soon.

Couldn't be happier. The motor was a true bolt-in proposition as promised by Don, but the speed controller installation in the thrust tube and associated wiring was a bit of a headache as it all becomes a bit of a squeeze back there and you need to make sure nothing can foul the elevator servo.

Performance is amazing, and despite the greater performance and weight i get longer flight times then the old setup. The only noticeable negative impact is that I find I need longer to setup for a landing as the glide is much faster then before.

Motor: - Don's Wicked 4800kV
EDF:- Alfa with 5 blade fan (385W @ 32.9A)
ESC:- X-Power 40A BEC mounted in thrust tube
Battery:- Rhino 3S 2350 25C
Radio:- JR2610 TX, R770S SPCM RX, HS81 (aileron) HS55 (elevator)
