thanks for all the great answers, I was told these do about 140.
with my experience with electrics I can tell you right now that the wattages being thrown out here, if they are correct are too high for the motor and batteries being recomended, they will run for a while but the life will be short even for the more expensive batteries. the motors will benifit from lots of cooling as that's been proven but if the new guy doesn't get the proper cooling he will wonder what is wrong with the motor, not suspect he didn't get enough cooling. (the term, it really gets hot doesn't tip em off)
I used to build 300 watt cdrom motors that held up with cooling and was told alot that that wasn't possible, lol.
(I don't mean new guy to flying, but rather to electric motors)
I look forward to this event, I think it will be popular if it gets past the teething.

List Updated and 2012 Rules Set Added

Guys,
With direction from Dan Kane, I have added to Post #1 the 2012 rules set as received from Dan on Feb 1, 2012. I also updated the section on ESC to state the $150 price cap.

Note: "Approved" components are specified as to what the rules will allow. ie. specific approved motors, or specific approved propeller, or specific approved ARF kits.

"Recommended" components refers to various components used in an E-F1 legal model that have been found to work well, are of reasonable cost, and meet the intent of the rules. Recommended components are simply suggestions to those that want direction for what works. These items are not required, nor are they in any way specifically endorsed by the NMPRA.

To be honest, they are simply off the top of my head from what I know to work well by my experience and by the experiences of others.

This is the plan. Scott McAfee, is working with NitroPlanes and will approve this prototype prior to production.

Lmao....good one. No not really. Do yourself a favor and take a second to read the rules, it won't make you look so foolish.

Regardless of your rules, would the dog fighter's higher speed be negated by the better handling of a F1 racer. I know that the dog fighter is based on the "Reno Racer" that has alot of American/British history.

The Dogfighter is a great flying plane, but don't fool yourself, it's not based on anything, let alone something that races at Reno. Some guys have them going fastish in a straight line, but that doesn't even come close to an actual race around pylons. Its foam, that means flexy at those speeds, cornering is horrible. Load it up to the same weight as an EF-1 and it's not even close to the same speed. Apples and oranges comparison.
