(14,83V 8,3A 123W 7215rpm at half-throttle)

May I suggest you to try GWS EP1060HD?

My be that you may try a GWS EP9050X3 to see how it works?
the reason for me to use a APC 9x7,5 prop is to have a fast airflow...
with the GWS EP9050X3, the WIN WIND will fly slower...
but the "problem" is that the GWS prop are with a 3mm hole (or 4mm for the 10x8 blades prop), and the GWS prop adaptater for the 30xx brushless motor has a 6mm shaft...

I have a GWS EP-1060x3 prop from the EB P40 kit, I could try it but I think a 3 or 4 blades prop has less performance than a good 2 blades prop...

Do you think GWS prop are as good as APC ones ???
I will try APC 11x5,5 to have more traction and slowest speed, as I need to take pictures during flight for the report in a french RC newspaper!!!

Hi Sebastien,

These two props all come with 3mm hole. You have to enlarge the hole on them, while EP1060x3 comes with adapter rings.

Hello
a french customer asked me what are the control throws for the Win Wind, as they are not given in the manual (neither the CoG location) :

Hi Sebsoupe,

The CoG of Win Wind is normally located between 120 - 130mm or 4.72" -5.12" from the leading edge of its central wing chord. But he/she has to adjust its location further depending on his/her preference after maiden.

yes, I will enlarge the front hole of the cowl to let enter more fresh air into the cowl, and i will make an other hole under the fuse to let the air exit of the fuse...
I'm trying to find a nice motor mount for the 3020/8T, like this one "hyperion 30 motor mount" but the diameter of the base (65mm) is a little to wide for the Win Wind fuse (60mm large)...
keep searching!

PS : is it OK to use Naro Super D ??? (even with the problem mentionned here), else I've got 2 servos S3N STD and 2 S3T STD
I will preffer that you to use GWS EMM-36 for our 30XXBL out runner mtors.

NARO Super D is great imrove the total weight of an electric airplane.

Hi Sebsoupe,

The page 10 of the manual did tell the throws that work for this airplane. The top one meant for rudder, second one for elevator, another two ones were for ailerons depending on your preference. It illustrated the angles to be taken rather than the distances.
http://www.gwsus.com/english/service...ane_manual.htm Would you click the picture of Win Wind after opening this link for viewing its manual.

Hi Sebsoupe,

There were different angles illustrated on page 10. A beginner could tell each angle applied on the control surfaces by using a protractor. Well, Wind Wind was not designed as a trainer.

Thats a under statement Mr. Chen . I am many years experienced modeler and since I cant read the manual I have nearly completed my E conversion. Im using a E Flight power 25. andshould finish and fly it this week end
The one thing I didnt see pictured is the recommended C G location.

maiden flights with a guessed at C G are always exciting

Hi Alpea 41,

Sorry for my late reply !
The CG is located at 120 - 130 mm ( 4.72" - 5.12") from the leading edge of its central wing chord.

Good luck to your maiden !
