Will you put up a narrarated FPV vid with the 5.8ghz stuff?

And BTW what RX are you using? Because if you are using a 6 channnel ORANGE RX, than get a Satellite extention!!! I have lost a few planes because they went out of range without the satellite. The satellites cost about 10 bucks on eBay. If you are using a spekky RX than get a AR400 (NO PARKFLYER RXes!!!!! ESPECIALLY DURING FPV!! U WILL GO OUT OF RANGE FAST (or seemingly faster than normally)

Yeah once I get the keychain cam (so that I can record the video) I can make a narrated video too

I'm using an AR600 with the dual antennas. No need for an satellite as it has no satellite port and should be good for easily 2500 feet. Won't be going over 2,000 feet to start, as my video will probably start to cut out anyways.

Heh. I just had an attempt to get scammed for that card on eBay.

Guy bought it now for $45, and requested I email the code, since he was "Outside the US".

Most people would do that, but I know that eBay protection doesn't cover gift card code transfer... He could get the code eMailed, then file a claim saying that the package never shipped, which was true.

But hell, the shipping address he had to enter to buy the item was in New Jersey.

Gonna ship it standardly, and ignore his PMs until I do. Sucks for him I guess

Does any body know where I can get a motor mount for a 24.8mm motor? I got a Exceed RC Alpha 400 3500kv for $8.00 NIB and unused!!! I am thinking of putting it on a popwing with a 30a esc (from my unfinished scratch built edge), 2 servos from my exceed rc f18 (the old deceased one ) a thunder power 1350mah 3s 25c and a 7x4 prop. Sound like a good setup to anybody?

@nforbes:

Planning on DD'ing a 7' prop from a 3500kv Heli motor on 3S? Ehh, I'm not the most experienced around here, but I doubt you'll get that.

If you want to put any prop on that motor, you'd have to do something along the lines of 4', at which point you'll realize that that extra motor weight will make the thing a lead sled.

On a 2S, you could drive a 6x3 as long as you keep it in burst throttle, but still, not going to be optimal.


Tl;Dr: There isn't enough plane for that motor. That motor is designed to be geared down for a heli, and is too high-kv for any useful direct drive as far as I know.

Sounds good but way to large of a prop. A 6x4 or 5x5 should do fine on a 3500kv setup, mine is running 1360kv remember the PopWing won't be able to handle more than what mine is doing, in fact it shakes a little bit on those super fast vertical dives.

Whoops . I think an e-flite park400 motor mount would work. Your motor is sized like a p400 equivalent... mounts should work. No guarantees though.

Piece of plywood and some glue should work fine... the PopWing comes with a motor mount too, BTW

Yeah. Smartest way to go is to make your own if you're even half decent with a hacksaw and power drill.
