Flyingwings raven


How may people on the forum has one?

I'm hoping to use a Turnigy 2700kv inrunner, 40 amp esc and 4.75x4.75 sport prop?

Thoughts?

Thanks

Hey there... that looks similar to the MS Composit Swift II and there is a great thread on it here

The Swift is also a 32" wing and most folks are using the 2730 "Blue Wonder" which is an outrunner. Take a look at that thread or post your question over there if you don't get more responses here.

The plane is really designed for an out runner so you will have to make your own mounting system..Bear in mind that the thrust line is cut into the "mounting block" This important consult Robb at Flyingwings for advice if you don't feel confident...

All in all as a suitable outrunner is so cheap I think that I would just buy one and just build it as per the standard kit..

Ye i think your right. I had a spare inrunner that i wanted to use.

What do you think of this motor with a 1000mah 3 cell?
Best prop size?

thanks

Should be ok... it's basically a higher KV version of the one I used..

Why not use the one I used.. same price(in stock) and will turn a bigger prop.

So slightly better acceleration and lower noise...12turn winding as apposed to an 8turn winding so slightly lower power... but better battery life

What prop would you go for?

You won't get this wing much faster than 60mph. IMO the wing section is too thick for very Hi speeds, it's more of a sport set up
