You down with EPP?

My setup I discovered long ago, and I could never find anything that was as fast.

3659-1900kv APC 7x6 Gas prop, 4s 3300mah 70C

Yes, I can't see much exceeding that in a DF. Wish I had tried it before mine expired in a midair. Any estimate as to straight and level speed? And how did you get the 3300 in - the most I ever squeezed into a DF was 2600 4s and that involved removing a fair amount of foam.

No foam removed. a 4s 3300mah fits perfectly. Nothing bigger

I think it was clocked at 125-130mph years ago with that setup. I use the Roaringtop 4s 3300mah 70C

The only way it will balance with that big battery in it is with the heavy motor up front

I tried that motor in one. It was fast but kinda heavy. If I remember correctly it died on a bad hand launch.

Neons,

Not sure if you are still looking for a motor or not.

For serious performance, consider HET 650 series.
250 gram $99
300 gram $109


My RCGroups PM is down.
Instead, Email me if you want help with motors.

Gryphon,
I have a motor on the way. Maybe next Monday. I was happy under 100mph with a 4s lipoly I do have a HET Typhoon in another plane. Great motor.
ThanX

Personally I think you're better off with a lower kv motor and a bigger prop, 6" prop looked too small for me. I use a Scorpion 3026 I think it is on 4s and used 8x7, 8x6, 7x8, 7x7 and 7x6 sport props. I'd consider the EFXtra motor on 4s and a 7x6 in the DF if I needed another motor and wanted to keep cost down

I have another motor coming. I will drop the Kv if this one does not work out. This is my 3rd motor . Burnt 2 already during some nice passes. I flew it back dead stick for another day.
Thanks for the info.
