Sounds good. Can you give a link to that motor? What kind of amps are you getting at WOT?
|Dec 04, 2011, 08:11 AM|
I don't have any tested specs for it yet, as I'll have to get some XT-60s on my wattmeter. But it works really well. It won't take my Skywalked straight up at WOT but I can climb pretty aggressively at 45-50 degrees. But do you know what? Even if my climb was restricted to 30 degrees, I wouldn't mind. This is just my liotering FPV plane.

Basically keep those test results coming!
You mention the Parkzone 9.5x7.5 - sounds like the best matched prop for that motor on 4S but I reckon the yet to be tested Master Airscrew 9x6 might be the safer bet considering the proximity of the tail boom.
I'm getting some of these 9x6E to test as well.
I forgot to get some MA 9x6 - duh...
Just found this 9x7.5E - could turn out to be 'the prop' for that motor.

Only thing to add at this time, I started doing motor research with Motocalc 8. The program pretty much convinced me that the Scorpion line of motors (and Hyperion) were some of the most efficient on the market. I went with a Scorpion SII-3020-780. I am running my Skywalker in the exact same configuration as I did when I ran the Turnigy 3542/1000 6 pole.
Motocalc8 said that I should be cruising at 30mph on 5.4amps using the Scoprion SII-3020-780 and a 9x7 three blade master airscrew pusher.
My actual results are closer to 7.2Amps. Although the Scorpion is a very well built motor, it costs three times as much as the Turnigy. You have to decide if the 1 less amp is worth a $100 motor.

All of that may be true, but I'd also trust a Scorpion motor much more than I would a Turnigy. That being said, I'd buy the turnigy becasue I don't have the money for a scoripon.

Wow you got all that range with just dipole antennas?
Thats great, the reception did not even glitch for a single moment.
Videos are awesome.
