Hiya. Very interesting little plane.

I use the 180W version of that motor in my easytar twin conversion and they work really well.
I have used them in several fast planes and they have performed well, and are near bullet proof. Unfortunately they are often out of stock.

I've been running several of the 1700 kv 2730s on 3s with 7x6 props with no problems, and I like to fly fast. Those little things seem to handle near double their rated capacity if you keep them cool.

A love twins and have built a couple so far, and am starting on a scratch built OV-10 soon using MPF.
This one looks like a very interesting project too, might add it to my to do list.

2730's on 3s with a 7x6.. wow.. you must have got some bullet proof versions.

i run 7x4's on mine on 3s and they are hot hot hot.. in the racer they were running out of puff after a few seconds at full power.

i was thinking about running the 180watt versions but they are heavier and after reading some really good reviews on the 130watt version, i decided to go for it instead. only had 3 short flights with it today, but im very very happy with them so far.

ill be building a 1400mm version in this same thread when i get back home in a few weeks.. will be using a set of 3548 790kv motors, with hopefully a 300mah 3s lipo, 50 or 60amp esc's.. so stay tuned

Perhaps, I was flying one today mostly at 3/4 throttle and the motor was stone cold. But I do mount them fully exposed.

Looking forward to seeing the 1400mm version.
