Help! power system set up for 3m sailplane
As a returned sailplane flyer, I would appreciate your views on the following set up which I propose to use.
criteria sought:- Brisk climb about 2000fpm (or better)
Current draw within capability of ESC I have at present
Airframe Top Model "Diva" converted to electric Thermik Dream (NSP) ??
4 servo wing total auw. weight 100oz.
Motor Hacker B50 S 6.7 to 1 gearbox
Cells IB 3800 up to 12 cells
ESC CC phoenix 80
Radio JR 3810 (8103)
Prop haven't bought one yet !
Questions Prop to use
RX pack or BEC gadget (my view is RX pack but could be convinced otherwise )
Current competence level:- I dont usually break them flying, "Hanger Rash "is more of a problem
I would welcome any advice.

This really belongs in the Electric Sailplanes forum.
As to your setup, what wind B50 do you have?

I have read some of your posts and seen your recent trauma, I hope you have recovered your good spirit, usually evident here.
Thanks again, I will look out for the 18.5 prop initially,
Assembling a Riva Silver S for some "slow" flying has got in the way of the "thermik dream" but it should be started next week , I have managed to get most of the parts except prop and spinner.
