No...no orange version. We do them in Red/white and Blue/white. Orange is on the slicks.

There appears to be a shortage of Hacker A50-16s motors right now.
What other motors are being used for a 6s set up?
I'm not looking for insane power (I've seen yours fly Erik -- you could give turbines a run for thier money.)

Would a Scorpion 4025-12 on 16X10 or 17X10 be overkill?

hahaha, that is very true. although im sure with a smaller prop (17x10 instead of 16x12) it will slow down a bit.

the scorpion isnt a bad choice. the hacker seems to be in stock here. aero model is the us distributor, great service. another route to go would be motrolfly 4325-450 with either a 16x10 or 17x10. its really your choice, ill be sure to help ya out with whatever choice you make.

I ordered one from them last week. I got the A50-12s today for a buddy, but my 16s was backordered.

I'm gonna start the build this weekend!

Has anybody actually tried HS225's and an HS985 in the Osiris yet? Just looking to sport fly it, but I'm going to have a heavier 8s 3700 setup.

Not sure yet. I haven't really researched it yet, but Ben mentioned the Scorpion 4025-16 when I asked about 8s.

I've been thinking that a 3 blade prop may look cool though. I think that I could run a motor with lower KV then. I'm not sure how much smaller of a prop you need to run when going from 2 blades to 3, but it may be easier to find a motor for a 3 blade prop. I know that 3 blade props are less efficient, and props and spinners are hard to find, so I have to look into that some more. Just something I've been thinking about........

i looked into 3 bladed props for my osiris for a while. just arent very many options out there for 3 bladed electric props, and the ones that are, arent in very convenient sizes

That's what I am affraid of. If I didn't get the power system right from the start, there aren't alot of props to play around with it. Also, the props usually cost much more. I'll probably just go with the recommended Scorpion unless I can find some info of a complete setup that someone has tried.
