Typhoon micro 6 enough for a warbird?

I read the thread on the typhoon micro 6 and 15, but have serious doubts of the one to choose.

So the basic question is: Are the micro 6 enough to fly a GWS spitfire with plenty of power. Running the micro6 i in motocalc only gives me 4,72 N of thrust, which I think is on the low side. Im currently flying an estarter and use kokam1200 3s as the power source. While its probably fine the the Estarter im unsure of the soon to come Spitfire.

Going for the micro 15 would require better batteries (kokam1500) and a better esc. But it will be usable in a larger variety of planes and certainly make a Spitfire go ballistic. However, money is always an issue

Any thoughts on this little dilemma?

It really depends on how fast you want to fly. The '6' is certainly enough to fly the bird, the '15' plus bigger pack will be stupendous...

Then there is the expense of an upgraded pack. what i owul ddo is get an ESC to cover the bigger motor, and then buy the smaller motor and see. If the need for speed is still there, well then its new pack and bigger motor time...

I know this is an ancient thread but I think you'll find the 6 OK... I have a pusher mirage with a micro 6, it makes over 600grms of thrust through a 10amp controller... GWS birds only weigh about 350!
good luck
