The idea behind this project is to see how fast a micro could be pushed on a 3s lipo.

Airframe: Parkzone Ultra Micro Polecat
ESC: Castle Creations Thunderbird 6amp
Battery: Hyperion 3s 180mah
Motor: AEO RC 2100KV 8Gram outrunner
Prop: GWS 4.5x4

AUW: 61.3 Grams

Build is standard, used lite ply for the motor mount... followed this thread to wire up the esc (1N4001 diode) TMASTER 2s Sukhoi setup

All I can say is its fast, I didn't get half a pack through the plane before I got bored in stock form ( I had the gear ready to be installed before I got the plane). All I can say, this is now my favorite micro.

I will get out again and do some Doppler readings with my rc speedo app and get some vids up for someone else to doppler the plane.

I'm feeling mid 60s...

A friend and I built two identical planes, I didn't get any build pictures of the interior, maybe he can chime in and post some up.
Hi
I was just about to mod my Polecat with a Plush 10a esc, 2900kv vesion of the motor you used, Hobbyking spektrum receiver and x3 micro servos, 2cell lipo and then i saw your post.

Your polecat mod looks like a way better and easier way of doing it but i have no idea how to wire the plush 10a esc into the current standard polecat receiver so that i can also use the standard polecat servos.

Can you please help, id really appreciate it.

This wiring scheme will work for both 2S and 3S (if the ESC supports it)

ok guys so i have a bootleg polecat.. aka a nitroplanes mini-air advanced extra 300.

here is a pic


anyway, i'm looking to make it fast figured id go ahead and copy your setups.

ESC

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...less-ESC-6-Amp
(was wondering if any similar ESC available has a LVC feature??)

motor (what prop should I use and is it a direct fit?)

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...r-Motor-2200kV

Battery (was going to try this 2s first and possibly move to a 3s down the road)

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ack-74V-240mAh

I also want to solder on standard servo connectors to the mini servos that were included in the plane so i can use a futaba FASST compatible 7.5g frsky receiver. Does anyone know where i can get a E-flite mini-style connector charging lead for use with a regular charger? Once i get the answers to these few questions, i will place my order and commence building a beast!

Thanks for the help, ive finished my polecat using a hobbyking plush 10 amp ecs, 2900kv motor and im using 2cell 180mah lipos
i had to wire it a bit different (plug the esc signal wire into ch 5 on the standard esc and mix it) but it works fine
this video has some of the pole cat flying but the motor came lose from the mount shortly after take off, all fixed now

hi strykerf27q
the plugs you need to make an E-flite mini-style connector charging lead are the Micro JST PH 2.0 3-Pin Connector plug.

Diode is a couple bucks or less.

2S batteries- I'm planning on series connecting some Hyperion 1S 240mah I have on hand.
