Motor, Motors???

Hey I know someone that could put that in a dynamax or a ramtec. Well not my business but if someone has one of those motors I know someone who would buy it

Mine looks like it will end up at around 7kg (15.5lbs) ready to go, this with 12S 5000's feeding a 4" Haoye/Turbax/Turnigy fan combo. I also have 2 flaps, 2rudder and 2 elevator servos, and E-Flite electric retracts, I think they save me some weight compared to air units. I'm using the stock foam wheels and do not have brakes or fancy struts, only the wires included with the E-Flites.

Not done anything special to remove weight, but keep in mind my fan/nacelle is much lighter than what most are using, mine weighs in at 700 gram (1.5lbs), that's where I save most of the weight compared to those running a Dynamax or similar fan setup.

4" Haoye shroud in homemade balsa nacelle, with cut-down Turbax rotor and spinner, currently with a Century 650A 800kV motor on 12S 40C 5000 Zippy, Sentilon 100HV controller. Waiting to get a Turnigy T600 880kV motor and will do a swap when I get it, the current setup is a little low on power. I'm getting 9.5lbs of thrust on just 2800W, I'm hoping the higher kV motor will up those figures a bit.

Put the plane on the scales today, RTF it is 6.8kg (15lbs)

Interesting stuff,thanks for the info do you plan to keep the shroud at 4in with the new motor or will you up grade to a 4.5inch or bigger? cheers
