ME262 Build and Setup

Has anyone completed one of these airframes yet? I have just received mine and am awaiting the receipt of the retracts and powerplant. I am planning to using twin 68mm - Aluminium EDF + 2185 kv motor (6S LiPo) and am looking into 6S LiPo's. Should I go with twin 5000 mH's or would should I install one and have both motors share the power source?

Do you know what kind of amperage you're going to be pulling? A 5000 for a 68mm fan just sounds way big from the get go...
To give you a starting point, if you're going to pull about 40-50 amps per fan I would run a 3300 battery (at least 20c) per fan.

Thanks Ace, not really sure, I have not received the EDU yet. I guess I'll wait until I receive the setup prior to a major expediture like LiPo's.

Lol, yeah definitely drop a line when you get some data on the fans.
I may not see a post on this thread right away, but feel free to drop me a PM. We'll get your setup squared away!

Hi guys,
so what happened to the plane? I got mine yesterday... and looked at that and..
Seems like it will be a brick and that it requires a HUGE amount of work...
Anyone flying it yet?
