Hangar 9 P47 Thunderbolt 60

What would be the best motor/speed control option for this plane. I would like to run a 4 blade prop if any body has any suggestions. Also what would be the best lipo pack for this bird. It's going to be a new build with electric retracts as well and any suggestions on radio and servos with be appreciated.

I have to same plane and I run a firepower 80 from Heads Up RC and a proton 80 amp opto ESC. I use a Sky Lipo brand 6 cell 4400mAh 30C for power and a separate pack for my receiver. My motor swings a 15x8 APC prop. I get about 7 plus minutes flight time. Hope this helps

Thanks. I bet that bird will scream with that 80 in there. What kind of servos do you have and retracts. Thanks.

Well my motor is a 50-65-410 so it's basically the same as an elite power 60. I have futaba 3004 servos on the control surfaces and I have a set of electric retracts form the FMS 1700mm p47 installed. They work great and are strong and scale. If you want I can't tell exactly what I used and how I installed them.

Heres my Corsair and Ki-84 using the APC 4 blade . These props work great, use less power to fly and takeoff
