this model needs good servo's
this is not a slow fly model so you need good strong servo's with good centration at an small control surface

this servo's can you use directly at 2 cell lipo

hi guys .. i've a spare motor setup lying about

M1818/17 4500kv MicroMotor 9g @ 60W (http://www.giantcod.co.uk/m181817-45...-p-404952.html)
GWS 4025

Do you think this would work in the Viper ?

Hi,

The motor is fine. (I am using the same one, but only 2000 K/v) I believe that a 3x3 Graupner CAM Slim Prop is the max. you should use at 2 cells.

No problem with cg balancing.

use a 3x3 gws or slim prop the mini viper don't fly great with big prop's
450 is a little bit big 320 is better at 60 watt

thanks Jaguar..

Do you have any pictures of the setup you have - motor mount etc ??? whats your C/G ? 45mm at the root ?

Would rather not reinvent the wheel if someone has got as good setup already ..

Yes, c/g at 45mm is perfect.


Here is a pic of the motor mount:
This is of MVJ number 2.... under construction. A pic of of my fist try you can see above # 81 and specs # 83

Good luck!
