Thanks Spyro, I'll give it a go.

Ryram, you're probably good for power, but the motor is pretty light. Specs at 105 g, cf the 200 g or so with the 32 sized motors. Since that's your forward most weight, you might need some lead.

Henry, I picked up a bunch of vari-colored LED's on ebay a while back. For $10, I think I got like 100 in 5 colors plus 5V and 12V resistors. Bit of a nuisance having to wire in the resistors, but I hate paying the prices they charge for most LED kits. I also paid a fair bit for some "top hat" white LED's which are extremely bright and wide-angled, great for landing lights.

Regards,
Jeff

Got mine a few days ago...I am going with the E-Flite power 32, and a Vario 3 blade 11 inch from Hobby Lobby. Should be sufficient, methinks. Dubro's 3 blade spinner is a very close match to the original..well, short of having to turn your own, I suppose.

Thanks Jeff this looks better.
http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the...lectric/Detail. 40 size. If the motor is rated at 40 amps, why are they talking about 60 and 70 amp escs? The motor is 48 mm the shaft is bolt on it's 18 mm total but where the prop back sits on is only 4 or 5 mm from the motor, plus the x mount and thrust down and right washers along with spinner back plate I'm figuring this is a good fit. that is going on the earlier estimate of 54 mm from firewall to front of fuse.
This motor likes the big props and has potential to spin a big 3 blader. I've used their motors and escs for everything but my stock pz stuff and never had trouble. Shipping is quick and cheap 2 bucks from Florida. I like that they post specs, you can tell the guy flies. Anyway trying to pass on a top notch deal.

I have one very similar to that. I use it on my 3D plane. I use 60Amp ESC. My motor is capable of handling 50Amps with no over heating issues at all, I guess that is why they suggest 60-70 Amps, in case you want to push it to the limit. I use a 13X6.5. I'm very happy with 13-14" props. But not with any of the 12" props at all. Plenty of thrust on larger props, but plane seems to stall on 12's". So I'm not sure if it's great on the hurri based on below:

The rising water used to only go as high as the road surface and then spill over into the lower side. Our yard would flood but water never touched the foundation and we never had more than 8 inches in the basement. I kept telling the engineer this would happen but he knew better. They really screwed us. How do you fight city hall?

Tom-- I meant Ming's Hurricane. I hope we don't see Katia. No offense intended but Russian women are crazy dangerous when they're angry and hurricanes are angry things.

Hobby-Lobby stocks eRC motors now, and they have the "40" size version that might be a good fit: http://www.hobby-lobby.com/40_size_b...33019_prd1.htm

Jeez Mike, hope you didn't get 3 ft of water in the cellar. Not all my houses have been on stilts and floods are no fun at all. I find the problem with many engineers is chronic myopia - they focus on the problem and miss the big picture.

Ming, another nice build. If that's an 11" prop, we may indeed have clearance issues with a 13". Hmmm.

Ryram, where you you last night when I was cruising the web looking for a decent motor than didn't cost more than the plane? It seems I have several large motors and a bunch of 400 to 10 sized and nothing in between. I have been looking for something that takes a 4-screw prop adapter so I can use the FMS one. Dang.

I tend to use ESC's that are rated 1.5 - 2x the rating of the motor. Most decent motors will tolerate overamping a lot better than ESC's, and the extra headroom means they run cooler, not a bad thing when encased in an insulated foam fuse. An ESC fire can ruin your whole day, ask me how I know.

I am using standard HK servos, although I have ordered a couple of digital (slow moving) servos for the flaps.

Regards,
Jeff

PS. Okay Ryram, just broke down and ordered one. If I have to cut the prop down, the extra kV will be needed. J

Do you thing 4S will fit in?
The Axi 2826-10 which is doing nothing seems to be good fit.

Is there any recommended glue? I build mostly from Balsa so this is new for me.

I think this motor should be great for those going 3S and 2 blades:



And this one for those going 3S or 4S and 3 blades


I used a SK3548 (not available anymore) 900 kv in my similary sized PZ bf109

Hehehehe ! Stay dry up there,,,looks like this angry Russian woman will miss us !

Great scheme VIK,
I think the story with one of his Hurris was the ground crews used parts from another black painted Hurricane to repair his..

I'll use whatvever servos I can cannabalize from other models I have,,, I use epoxy resin,Foam-tac and CA for the most part on EPO .

take care all ~

Ming recommended a scorpion 3014 870Kv motor. Just curious as to why most are looking at seriously over motoring the plane?
