Hi i have just got myself an old VMAR T-6A Texan II 80" model with no engine, i want to convert it to electric brushless but not sure which motor to use, this plane previously had a SAITO 150 4 stroke fitted, and i have a 16x8 prop to use on it.

is a 2250w electric motor (AXI 5330) the sort of motor/power i will need and could i get away with 6s battery?
I must point out i am on a budget so can not afford motors over £150 as i will still have to buy a good ESC and Lipo pack.
Seen a Rimfire 1.20 motor under my budget would that work?

Sorry for all the questions 1st time i am converting a large bird from nitro to electric.

Some Electron-6 receivers

I got back into flying FPV mutticopters again for a while.
Technology has advanced a lot since I last built up some quads. Now they have integrated stacks with the 4 in 1 ESCs, Flight Controllers, Video TX and super tiny RC receivers. My old quads only have maybe 32 video channels and no race band channels. Now they can have up to 48 channels on the video transmitters plus some VTXs have a custom band where you can program it for your favorite channels. Then they have OSD now and you can change VTX channels from your RC transmitter. With some flight controllers you can even edit your PIDS remotely too. What is really neat is being able to configure or program the ESCs via the flight controller too. That is great for reversing a motor or two without having to mess with the motor wires.

I used a Emax mini Magnum 2 stack with a 4 in 1 ESC, Flight Controller, and VTX. The motors are Emax ECO 2306 1700kv, and Emax AVAN 5x2.8x3 props. It is setup for six cell Lipos.

I just got done building up this Pyrodrone FL3X 5 inch quad. It is about as small as you can go with a 5 inch quad and not have the propellers hit the frame or components on it.

Given the 3 days required to fabricate, it's never going to be mass produced. The wires should all be wrapping wire. They would have to be soldered on a separate jig, then glued in place.

The hall effect sensors were off center. The screw & the speaker need to change places. It needs a stand to balance on the charger. At least the frequency hopping works & uses a very simple algorithm. The hall effect sensors have to be the lowest mV/G possible.

Got the hall effect sensors as close as possible without removing material. Spacing out the magnets more just increased the deadband. The hall effect sensor fiducials are exactly where they need to be. They could be shifted to allow for hot glue residue. The magnets could be closer to the shaft, but that would require going to a metal shaft. There's still a bee's dick of hot glue residue offsetting the steering sensor. Hot glue residue could be a legitimate reason for adding clearance.

Only a driving test would show if the hall effect sensors are good enough. Getting within 0x08 might be good enough. Gluing the hall effect sensors has been a matter of dropping a blob on the plastic, then pressing in the sensor with the mark 1 lion paw. It cools the hot glue instantly but might be the most accurate way.

Well, all I can say is this is not your typical small RC Foamie Airplane model by any means of the imagination.

If you look closely during the landing phase, Joe targeted the side Grass field adjacent to the Textile Runway and it did pretty good.

Telemetry recorded 141.3 MPH straight and level and 154.2 MPH in a slight dive.

Just starting the drawings for this one......several of my buddies have been after me to build something more "scale". We'll see

In 2009 I gave away my fleet and gear, it was quite a lot, I had to consolidate in order to move to Cali for a business partnership to launch a new Cafe only to find myself in the middle of nowhere with a failed prospect. As a builder I can always make more when I want, but getting much more heavy duty in it this year, this has been quite an eye opener and some good, some bad things on the scene for us builders and RC plane guys to have to deal with.

I am finding some stock to be around, rather cheap, mainly park flyer stuff along gear, but stick built kits to stock is scarce, so I opted to stockpile the balsa once I found a source, with the seller not really knowing how scarce this material has became. We still do not have a depron alternative, I was looking forward to building with it rather then foam board, and the hobby businesses are not selling sheets of their alternative foam stock. I am no fan of EPP, it's too spongy and the finish is terrible.

I have a love/hate view along kits. In some areas they let you fly through the process having the laser cut pieces ready to go, in other areas you are needing to learn their way of doing things, often unique to just that make and model of kit, often too they never revised them so they are made for outdated gear. I put together a Sig Breezy Day Cub, added ailerons, it took some extra's for the revisions, also it had to be reconfigured to handle the modern gear. This is normal for kit building in these days, which...Continue Reading

Micro Tundra Loops and Lands (4 min 49 sec)

Yeah , thats about it !
Remember that engine test ? And how on the test stand that little motor put out 160grams + of thrust !
I dont think that translates to what is happening in the Micro Tundra .

Is it the battery ESC combo ? Delivering less power VIA the 1106 ... Yeah , in the model , it's a different story .
If you want to throw the MT around ( Stunt ) , then you will want more POWER !

I did try to do rolls , just not enough aileron ( 50 / 50 - Rates / Expo ) , so I will need to tweak that .
I have ordered a 1306 3200kv - So will see ? Also might want a new ESC , maybe 10A ? can you buy a 8A ESC ?
Anyways , ..........
