I am working on mine, and I just don't see why you would want to do this. I am instead using a different motor, a Scorpion 3026-10, Kv 980, on 4S. Calculated performance is:

APC 11x7E on 4-cell Li-Po operation (14.0 volts)

Amps - 56.4
Watts - 789
RPM - 10,625
Thrust - 102 ounces (6 pounds 6 ounces)
Pitch Speed - 70 MPH


APC 12x6E on 4-cell Li-Po operation (14.0 volts)

Amps - 62.46
Watts - 874
RPM - 10,475
Thrust - 122 ounces (7 pounds 10 ounces)
Pitch Speed - 60 MPH

I don't know why they recommend the weight and expense of a 6S system, unless it's needed to achieve the CG location. I have not reached that point yet, so maybe that is the driver...Pete M

With 6s 5000, it balances well with the packs located toward the back of the cabin...
The 42/58 is much heavier than the scorpion 3026, so smaller packs may still balance well. I tried 4s 3000mAh, and its too light with the 42/58 500kv. I could change the motor to 35/36 1400Kv...

Thanks for the responses simplyfly and pmisuinas.

Out of curiosity, what FPV gear are you running? I also have a LR setup, but do not have the courage to install it on a floater... I am using DL signal with Lawmate 1.2 1000mW vtx, GoPro HD, RVOSDv5, Dominators and cross hairs on the ground, spw on the ship. Next purchase is to add a RMRC 540.

Despite their being higher resolution cameras on the market, this 540 has the best low light capabilities of all that I have seen.

I guess everyone who's interested already has one. I have the electronics and no foam, because the LHS over promised and under delivered.

I'll try KMP again. But their referral to a dealer in FL was a dead end. Some of the China direct options are tempting. Three for $44/ea.
