I believe BAF is Big A$$ Foamy. Check out DW Foamies. They have some BAF's.

FWIW, a minor point, but to be correct, Kv is not thousands of rpms. The "K" is the scientific term for "Konstant" (constant) and what it means is that theoretically a motor will turn "K" rpm per volt. The Kv could be in tens, hundreds, or thousands, it really doesn't matter.

motor to esc

Question?
If a motor requires a 20 amp ESC unit is it OK to fit a 30 amp unit,or does it effect the speed control of the motor eg. the rev range. Yours Paul.

Thanks for the replies below(PICKLE 72 & AEAJR ),I was hoping this was the case.

Nope its perfect. Rule of thumb is to go to the next size up on the esc if you can afford it money and weight wise.

Too big an ESC is fine, just adds cost and sometimes weight.

Too small an ESC ( not enough amp rating) is bad.

It says you can go up to a speed 600 motor and 8 cell pack using the ESC that came with the plane.

Hi guys. I read an explaination of Exponential Rate, i am guessing this is "expo". I understand what it does, but what i dont understand is what it is used for and what it should be set at (i fly a t-28). any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Expo makes movements on your sticks smaller (or larger). But too much can make the plane feel mushy.

If you set your expo at 50%, then when you move your sticks 50% it will only move the control surfaces 25%. But when you go to 100 it will still move the control surfaces to 100.

It's different than dual rates in that the full movement is still the same, just the middle part is different.

I started at 0% and didn't know any better. Then I found expo and changed everything to 30%... but after a while realized that everything was too mushy (too much stick movement to get the plane to move). So I've settled around 10-20% expo on elevator and ailerons on most of my planes. 0% on rudder.

Give it a try. You'll find that it makes the plane far less twitchy to small movements on your sticks. Start small or you'll find out quick that too much is bad news.
