Hey,

Im about to build the 62 version FlyGuy, I saw some motors and I still have one laying around.
I have these 2 motors, which one will suit the 62 inch Flyguy?

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...er_1200kv.html

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s..._version_.html

If one of the 2 would fit the flyguy, then which size prop would I need?

Actually I'd like to make the 46 inch flyguy but I can't find any tiled plans of it (someone a link?)

(I will make it out of 6mm depron)

Thanks already!

Of the two, the second motor will work but you will have to go 6s with an 8x4 prop. Really recommend you consider an Eflite power 10 motor, 3s. Can't help with the 46 tiled plans, just what's on the build thread.

Use Acrobat X or higher and it will print the pages as if initially tiled.

Or get PDFill PDF tools ( free)

Iron Man survives Maiden Flight

Fantastic test flights yesterday! adding mask to see what effect it has. Also motor ran hot even though amps were @59 static so will try 2 blade 10x6 instead of 10x7x3.
Motor Turnigy 3536 1400kv 60a esc. 630 watts.
Also made custom pull-pull horns. Videos soon.

Looks kinda scary with the mask on.
Pull-pull cables are the best, I use them on everything I can.
Did it fly well with the mask?

Test flight video

The Iron Maiden Lol.
Flew very stable only a couple of clicks of trim. 36oz because of additional structural reinforcements for larger motor. Next some touch ups, reprop and add mask.

Can you give us a hint as to where you set the CG on this and and did putting the mask on change anything? I still have yet to get my Flygirl in the air. She's got a full manikin head but I think my motors are mounted in the wrong place. I need to remove them and re-install them a bit lower in the chest.

Maybe a little pitch-up with the mask. Great flyer.

Weather turned bad so haven't flown with mask yet. CG exactly where Otto said 1/2" in front of top notch. I inserted a piece of fishing line tied and glued around a small piece of CF, easy to check cg and lateral.
