Here's some specs on the micro if its the same as yours?

On the bell motor, there's some test results posted by users here:

Looks like the 8x4 would do it on the bell, but would be pushing the micro with 3S.

I powered mine with a 2200kv motor spinning a 6X4 Prop (tried 6 X 5.5 prop,esc went up in a big puff of smoke) connected to a 30 amp ecs and a 2200 3 cell lipo. It flies fast, rolls fast and lands a little fast.With it a little on chunky side weighing close to 1 1/2 pounds the Cutlass handle some strong winds . I had to paint the wing tips red. A Grey plane with Grey skies makes interesting flying.

FOR MY CUTLASS [40 in.] Build.-- our of 3/4 in. Blue foam. ??? Wonder how heavy and how much drag with that 3/4 in. stuff???
This is what www.headsuprc.com suggested for the above. I sent him pictures, etc.
POWERUP 400 Zoom Motor
HURC 40A ESC
EMP 6X4E prop
11.1v 2200 30C battery
Will give very nice speed and about 29 oz. of thrust
or
3536 - 16 motor
Emax 50A Budget ESC
APC 8x6E prop. if you have room
11.1v 2200 40C Lipo battery
This will give you about 45 oz of thrust,

Curtass v-2

This is my 30in and 40 in. Used 3/4 in blue foam. Why so thick.
Found a simi load of it at the RV mfg. plant in Chanute, Ks. when I went there for repair on the RV.
All Electronics are from HURC. Jeff is great to work with.

Hi all,

I just wanted to thank you for this wonderfull scratch plane !
It flies very well, slow passes and high manoeuvrability with a good top-speed with my setup !

I've made few mods (smaller elevons, "depron" foam --> EPP airframe was too much soft with my 1st version)

AUW : 205 gr
Motor : Turnigy 3020 1800kv
ESC : 30 A
Lipo : 3S 1100mA 35C
Prop : 6x4 E
Servo's : 2x 5gr Hextronik

Cheers from France !

Couple more versions of the Cutlass. The little weeny one is made from $ store foam. It's 18 in. wingspan and weighs 1.8 oz. WO batt. Batt. is 3 cell 360 ma. Radio is the HK 4 channel orange rcvr with 1.7 gram servos. Motor is a Turnigy 5 gram turning a 5-3 prop. Flies like charm but to quick for indoors. Bigger one is unfinished (started about 10 yrs ago)33 in. WS with a 70mm ducted fan. Made from blue foam, all cut with a hot wire. Fuse. was cut in three sections. Wing is covered with Doculam, a stickyback plastic film. It has 1/4 in. balsa spars. Must finish it someday.

Gord.
