Okay so I have a really basic question. I have a PZ UM Corsair, that contains the AR6400 "brick", correct? Can it be attached a to a brushless ESC somehow or can I only use it with the brushed motor that came with the Corsair?

You can even use the Brick with a 2S Brushless ESC, by powering the brick thru the BEC of the ESC and using a diode to drop the 5.0v's from the BEC down to about 4.2V.

A Brushless Corsair on 2S will have much better performance than one on 1S. Most 1S brushless motors will not perform as well as the original brushed motor.

That would take a decent amount of time, effort, and money right? But seems doable.

What, a 2S Corsair?

It'll take a 1 dollar diode, a $14 ESC, a $7 motor, a $1 prop, $.05 of heat shrink, some battery extensions from HK, some scrap plastic for a firewall and some screws you have laying around.

For tools you'll need a soldering iron/solder and some epoxy to install the firewall in the plane.

You have a point, what motor/speed control would you use, would you have to swap wires like this?

The easy way but not the cheapest way is to swap out the Rx board and motor from a beast. I did this on a Polecat and now have a Polebeast.

Good idea!

A 2 cell LiPo could go as high as 8.4 volts fully charged. A diode drops 0.7 volt, leaving 7.7 V to the Rx, isn't that too high?

The power for the reciever is taken from the BEC output of the ESC and is typically 5vdc which is dropped to 4.3vdc by the diode---Just right to power the brick!

The AR6400LBL has a built-in brushless controller.
Also used in the Stryker 27Q.

But its limited to 3a output. Not usually an issue but can be limiting sometimes. The as3x brick is 5a, so better.
Adding a seperate ESC gives a bit more flexibility.

The paper models are new to me. I just experimented with one of the three free downloads you get from fiddlers green and am badly putting together a cessna 172. Obviously this one is not ideal for putting a brick in, too weak made out of paper. What would be the best way to incorporate the graphics and design of a fiddlers green model into a structure/size that can support the ar6400? Would it be possible to just scale one up ever so slightly and make a rudimentary foam structure to support the paper exterior? Hmmm.

I would skip the paper and copy the design on to foam, you could make it profile. If I

am understanding you correctly that is what I would do.
