I wish I could read french. I'm interested in knowing how that motor choice is working out for you Gregoo. I'm building my first EZ and want it a bit over powered just to have the extra horses in the stable to call upon when I'm feeling froggy. But is that Turnigy too much motor? Would I have to reinforce the plane?

Also to anyone, is the engine mount removeable in case I want change things out?

Thanks,
Evvy

I am building my second Easystar 2 to carry a camera,and the folks over at headsuprc recommended this combination as more power than stock:
Emax BL2220/07 Outrunner
HURC 30Amp ESC
APC 9 x 4.5E Prop
In order to use a larger prop I am using this mount-http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the-2422/Easy-Star-II-Adjustable/Detail
I have it on my current Easystar 2 and it works great!

Thanks for the info, mnahmia. The pricing looks good. Still hoping to hear back from Gregoo on his setup too.

[http://translation.babylon.com/french/to-english/:] Thank you! The advantage of the caster is to protect the lower part of the fuselage!! I ever made of track with but if I must make some, I will add 2 small shoes at the end of the wings
I translated Gregoo's earlier post with all the details, and I'm glad I did, because he found the motor I've been looking for. Got one on order.

Gregoo, à quel point font vous aiment le moteur de Turnigy pour votre EZII ? Vole-t-il bien ? Est-ce trop de puissance ? Avez-vous la vidéo de vol avec votre installation curent ?

Thanks, Karl.

Je suis désolé de vous répondre en français car je suis vraiment nul en anglais!

Ce moteur le Turnigy est parfait en performance (du couple et une belle vitesse de pointe) équivalent à mon premier ES avec le inrunner 2200 kv !!

Les accus utilisés sont toujours les mêmes 1800 a 2200 mhA 3S!

En tout cas je vous recommande de renforcer les ailes comme je l'ai fait car vu la vitesse qu'il prend (+ 100 km/h) en pointe!!



Super en vol et trés stable!

Non désolé je n'ai pas de vidéo avec ce moteur!

Ordered Gregoo's motor setup.

I've been out of the game for a couple years but I always have been and likely always will be a power junkie when it comes to planes. I started flying in Denver and overpowering was almost a must there due to the thinner air but I think I can keep the throttle in check down here at sea level, at least for the first few flights!

Now to get a Futaba 7c, batts and a charger.. Thank you Tower Hobby 3-pay!

New Propeller?


What's a good replacement propeller for the ESII? I'm not looking for more power, just something to perform like the original. I dinged the original and the vibrations now show up on my keychain camera videos.

PS - Can somebody explain the lingo APC, GWS, Slow-Fly? Which for ESII?

APC (Advanced Precision Composites) and GWS are company names. As far as I can tell, GWS seem to be focusing on smaller, low cost props (some of them are quite well performing, though) for lighter A/Cs. APC have a broader range of props, many available as paired pusher/tractor (CW/CCW) types.

SF, or (generic) slow flyer propellers are generally intended for lower rpms (say <100000rpms/diameter).

The APC "TE" (thin electric) are designed for higher rpms, in application like the FunJet.

I'm not certain, but it seems that Aeronaut folding props are the best alternative to the stock prop, but they are usually even more expensive.

All in all, I'd go for an original set of replacement blades. Don't be tempted to go for a fixed prop, exept for using while waiting for the original to arrive.

Dune du Pyla


Salut Gregoo,

vous habitez loin de Pyla? J'ai passé quelque journees de mes vacances 2012 a Cap Ferret, et pendant monter la dune, je regretterai de pas apporter ma EasyStar. Avez vous penser du faire un vol lá-bas?

Cordialment


I visited this place during my vacation last year, and I was cursing myself for not bringing my FPV EasyStar.

Mnamia - On the EasyStar II, the top of the motor pod comes off with three screws. You can remove the screws that hold the motor to the rear wall of the pod and pull it out through the top, easy as pie as long as you can unplug from the ESC.

I'm using a Turnigy 2836-1200 motor http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=7992

Turnigy Plush 25A speed controller
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=2163

Programmed with a Turnigy BESC programmer (WELL worth the $!)
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=2169

I'm carrying a keychain camera 808#16, G-OSD with GPS module, DORA board to convert Spektrum receiver data into analog signal strength, Immersion 600mw 5.8ghz video transmitter, Spironet antenna, and a Pixim Seawolf video camera (like a brick, 52 grams!).

I don't do vertical climbs and acrobatics, but I've got all the power I need with the equipment above and the stock folding propeller. I fly at half throttle and easily achieve 30-40 miles per hour.
