1/12 Scale Combat E-Conversion Ideas

Anyone know of a good motor/esc that will work good on old .25 1/12 scale combat planes. Trying to keep it to 9" or 10" props on 2200mAh 3s lipo.

I will probably have to go 4s for a little more zip.

I've used a 2830 - 1200 KV outrunner with a 30 amp ESC.
Check Value Hobby or Hobby King.

Wow 6S.
Are those super heavy or what?

No, we are light......

We use them for higher efficiency. I fly a FVVS J22 with 850mm wingspan with a 6S1600 setup, overall weight 720g.....

I use motors with 700kV with a 8x5 APC sport. You get maximum torque with less current. In the J22 i use a teamhunter squid 2810-700KV . Full throttle for 7 minutes with streamer, current 12A.....

Or 650kV with 8x6 APC at 6S2700 in a henschel HS 129, videos here:
