EDIT:
On further investigation, the motor which spun free and true without blades was a little noisy when the blades were added. I put an in line meter in and throttled it up slow to max and back off. This read 50 AMPS, previously this test yielded about 38 AMPS so I guess the motor needs repair or replacement. The pack seems to have survived also so I think I came out lucky considering she went in "with authority".

Hi Kerry, great tip on the stretch wrap!

About the 38A, was that with the stock motor/prop?

The 38 AMPS was with an HK 2836, 1000KV with 11X8 Graupner Cam blades on a 2200mah 40C pack.

Wow, 17,000 posts, thats about 15 years of typing at my speed

Those should work. Keep in mind that alignment of the holes all the way up thru the fuselage and into the nut is crucial. Mine were not aligned and I was convinced that the screws were too short. I purchased 35mm and found that they still wouldn't thread. It wasn't until I drilled out the holes a little that I was able to align and sync.

Screws too short!

My stab screws were a hair too short to grab the threads in the nuts.
I got 3x35 mm screws, and they screwed right in. I did have to trim off a mm or two, though.

I think if you slightly compress the stabilizer and fuselage as you reach the nut with the 30mm screw, you will find that it meets. Obviously, you want to screws to tightly secure the stab to the fuselage. I finally abandoned the 35mm screws once I realized this...and that i would have had to cut the 35mm screws (creating a potential problem of it's own).

amps/watts

could you please bring data (or link) on the amps/watts you get with your motors/props?
am trying to find the right esc and connectors for my outfit and don't want to go too low.

thanks

The ESC that comes with the nitroplanes setup is 40amp. As stated above in previous posts, stock setups are pulling 30-38 amps as the norm.

Of course, it will really depend on the motor and prop combo. In any case, standard connectors dean's "t", EC3, bullets, powerpoles, would be fine.

Very soon, i will be putting an amp meter on mine. I'll post the results.

motor in

for what i see, 2 of the best motors are the 3010 and the 2836. for those in particular i would like to learn amps/watts and connectors size. ideally golden bullets if anybody is using them.
thanks
