i think on the esprit site they are not including the prop adaptor or x mount, so that seems to be a very reasonable number

Been working on my 70" Electric Slick and really enjoying the build. These 70" planes are just the right size for building and transporting and they still fly big as well.

Thanks for the info Dennis.

18.0 oz exactly ?

So the listed motor weight from espritmodel of 470g seems to be accurate.

510g from aero-model should include everything.

So the 14L is about 2 oz more than the Motrolfly.

Which A50 do you think that is best for Xoar 19x10 on 8s ?

there isnt one. a 19x10 is really really pushing the 14L on 8s, and a 19x10 isnt enough (IMO) on the 16L on 8s

Been talking to Ken about winding a motrolfly in between 275 and 307 kv to optimize for the 19 x 10.

He said the 307 might work with 19 x 10. I was a bit worried about the heat.

Why the need to run a 19x10?

well, at least IMHO, the 19x10 is the perfect size all around prop for the slick. big enough to do some big imac style maneuvers, yet small enough not to cause excessive torque in a hover. YMMV

More thrust,and could be used for both Slick and SC on 8s-3800/4000 (probably the Edge later)

That's what I am thinking.

a) Any disadvantages of the 19x10 ?

b) 16L with 19x10, has anyone tried ?
