I love my 2815. Mine is a custom wind but I had a 950 in my epp extra for a bit. Had plenty of power. My custom wind pushes the limits of a 50a esc with a 13x6.5 so I'm running an Ice lite 75A in mine. Crazy 3s power.

What KV did you go with for your custom wound 2815?

Ken said it came out about 1025kv. On a 13x5 Xoar is was still pretty powerful and stayed under 50A. I like the 13x6.5 much better so when I put it in my edge I got the lite 75a.

Man... no wonder your Edge is a dang Beast! I wonder if a 60a ESC will work? That's what I've got in there now. I'll have to do some calcs unless you've run a watt meter on there.

You should be good with a 60A. Here is a little video I did before maiden. 57.88 amps on that runup. I hit 61 once with new packs but those numbers fall off quick in flight. I run the motor up to full throttle for a couple seconds before I run my tests.

Cool. I've got an eflite 60a ESC in there that I believe can handle peaks of up to 80a so I should be golden. I think I'll give Ken a call!!

Thanks,

950Kv vs. 870Kv would explain the 13.5 x 6.5 instead of 14 x 7. Not a big difference and only $10.00 more than the Omega. Might be a good choice. I really like the way the 14 x 7 slows my Velox in a downline with the throttle chopped but 1/2" can't make that much of a difference.

Long time no chat. No I didn't die just been taking a break and perhaps pouting a bit over the death of Edge #3. I at long last got around to doing the motor box replacement on Edge #2 yesterday! For those of you who remember that was the one that hit power lines and then later on a school roof in its' brief life of 54 hamfisted flights.

Tried to use 100% acetone to loosen the CA first and it was an exercise in futility and frustration. So I ended up making a 70 mile round trip to the closest place that had proper debonder, since now that I was in the proper mood to do the repair there was no way I was going to wait a few more days for some to be shipped. I ended up with Mercury Debonder and it worked great. I had the old busted parts removed in about an hour. While I had the room I fixed 2 broken formers, a busted cross brace and reinforced the side plates that the wings bolt to that I had realigned and glued back together previously. 3/32 thick balsa and a generous amount of thin and medium CA worked wonders for this part of the repairs. The new motor box install was way easier to install than I thought. Amazing how strong it is even before you add the CA. Should have done this months ago like I planned. I hope to have old girl back in the air tomorrow weather and wife permitting.

Just as a matter of mentioning....the "best' debonder made (IMO) is Golden West "Super Solvent"... I have used this for many years, and it does really work great.

Hello, new to thread and loving my 48" Edge. First balsa in 15 years. Got back into the hobby a year ago after selling everything and going electric. The boxes keep coming- EPP 1100mm Yak, Twisted 32" Edge (for the yard!), F18 and Stinger 64mm EDFs, Peaks Pitts, a couple micros, Art Tech Yak that I gave away (only plane so far that wasn't a great value (first foamie!, lesson learned). And of course the best in the fleet, the Edge. Sorry, went off there for a moment. All ready looking at the 59" Slick that they have on sale :-).

Question- I just changed ESCs. The 45 Amp I had installed had a slight delay just off the throttle stop- no fun for hard 3D. The new Sky Power 60 Amp seems very smooth (haven't flown it yet). It came with the brake set at medium as a a default. I turned it off. Is anyone flying with any brake on? It wasn't a real quick stop (WOT to throttle cut took about 2 sec to stop prop). All my planes have the brake off but this one is so mild I was curious. I'm running an Omega 130, 14x7 APC (tried a Master Airscrew wooden 14x8 but it pulled 60+ with 3 cell and 65+ with a 4cell), the Sky Power 60 A ESC and 3 cells (1800-2800- 4 cells on this is just overkill!).

Thanks
