@Yello: I have a similar setup as you in my miniHawk (2221-6/KPG5.2/12x17 on 4s) and the performance of this setup is what I'll be seeking in the X but with considerably longer motor time than the Scorpion with a tiny 4S1800 can provide.
Another reason for suggesting the 1115 with KPG is the weight issue - the 2221 combo will make it difficult to balance since it weighs about 100g less than what the plane is balaced with now.

@Yuri: what GB and prop do you use in combination with the 1115/1Y on 6S?

So how long are you thinking you can hold the throttle to kill mode for ? I am looking at the 16/45/2 with great interest.

Dear Scary VooDooChild,

After seeing your X-vid, I have renewed interest in the plane. You set it up like a real show plane and I like the way it "shows".

Tell me about your drivetrain please. I won't likely know the model number of the Mega line, so perhaps you can add a note regarding KV and motor weight, so I have an idea of what you are doing.

Also, after a flight like in the video, what are the temps of batt and mtr I'd you've been noticing?

Thanks,

Eric ( future X pilot, Yuri has some design motivation that i've already sent.....won't be like anything seen yet )

Hey Eric....The Mega to Neu translation is 16/35/1=1112/1Y,The Mega is around 160 grams with a Kv of 3600.I have that on a KPG 27 5.2 gearbox (fits great in the X nose,14.5X14 blades on a 32mm spinner,CC 100 ice light,2650 40C 4 cell sky lipo.When I get home I will post the log from that flight for better info.

Eric, Richard said I'm not pushing the gear in the X, according to the log. So we need to see exactly what gear (motor kv) is in there. Maybe we need 6s?, been running 5 with 16x17slims. I also have 16x17s on a +3 and will give that a go.

Come out to play next time and I'll give you some stick time

16x17 on +3 is fun
16x17on +5 is more fun
16x17 on +7 is too much fun
But DEATH for the batteries.

Yuri, my new GensAce packs didn't even get warm. We'll see as I put more cycles on them.
