Strega E from Rcrcm

I just got my hand on the E version of the Strega F3F plane from RCRCM

Details :

Wing span: 2.9m
Length: 1.46m
Wing area: 56.3dm2
Empty weight: approx. 1667g

Thinking of utilizing the power plan available in hands, I have the following at my disposal.

Motor : Neu 1512 1D 6,7,1 / 1509 1D 6,7,1 / 1110 1Y 6,7,1

ESC : CC125 / Ice lite 100

Prop : stratair 16 X 16 / rfm 16 X 17 / RFM 17 X 18 (5 dgr offset)

Lipo : 4s (3000 ++ mah) due to space constraints .

Any thoughts on the flyable setup is appreciated.

Yeah and skip the regulator to.... save weight.
+ your plane will be very easy to transport after your first flight.

I don't think the ice 100 can handle 300 amps, get a cc 125, cc 180, ice light 200.

My 1512/1D/6.7 with a 18x21 performs very well even on just 3S. I would suggest that set-up and the P180 maybe even over the Ice200 on 4S with the 17x18. The P180 will allow you to prop up later should you choose. I suspect you will like it all the more with a bit more prop.

Don't use the ice 100, and get the gm 18*21/23 form susa, rfm props break on 4s with that setup.

Assuming Sam is trying to use what he has on hand (with the possible exception of the ICE100), and I haven't done the calculations...what about going to a good 3S set-up with the start up softened up some. Wouldn't that keep it within the 4.5kw rating for the prop?

Edit: At least the 16x16 or 16x17.

Hi,
That's about the same combination I'm running in my Spider except I'm running a Phoenix 180 on 4S A123 with a RFM 17 X 18 prop and it works very well. I was wondering if you could give me a dimension of the opening size at the rear of the canopy (Just wondering if my A123 pack would fit).
Thanks,
Creg

Thanks, it would be tight but should fit (same with the spider). I'll be looking forward to seeing how yours comes out. I'm looking for something to swap this gear into probably this next winter.
