Hi Mario,

Do you know the power or current draw of your setup?
What is your ~climb rate?

Thanks,
Tony

I'll measure and post later. It does climb quite aggressively.

Tony,
Real figures: 800W at 75A while E-calc figures were 1013W at 111A. I had to add 49g at the tail to balance it.

Hi Mario,

Thanks for the info, looks like I will be putting the motor on a 4 cell, 3800mah, 65c lipo, RFM 18.5x12, want to go for ~1500w on short bursts. I have to mill the CC speed controller fin mount edges off to fit now.

Thanks,
Tony

Tony,
My original settup was going to be the same motor with 4S battery and a smaller diameter prop, but I couldn't get the 2 pack of 2S cells to fit, so I went with my current combination. My batteries aren't 65C. I guess i could tweak more power frm the motor if I used a better battery. Nevertheless, it does climb like a homesick angel.

Hi Mario,

Here is the data with a partial charged pack, TP 2650 45C 4 cell.
1509 1.5D 6.7 with 18x10 folder.
With a fully charged 3850mah, 65C rating, going to be sweet for short bursts of 5-10 seconds.
