Hi elewon, I have used this motor quite a few times with 8 x 4.5 prop without any problems .. although I am no expert when it comes to electrics .. maybe my good friend Duke could give us his expert advice on this

Hahaha...ex-pert.....

Well I would love to test this little motor with a tester to be sure. But I'm very confidant it will be fine. I have the 3536/5 1450kv, 3548, 2826, in the series of motors. I have found them to be under-rated with amps. My EFX Racer is running the first one mentioned and its happy running 50amp constant and 65amp peak. She's running an 8x8 on 3s and 8x4 on 4s.
100MPH+
Would love to see some figures on a wot bench test..... Lockey...

I managed to get out and maiden the Comez .. with my one and a half eyes .. maybe I would have been better stay at home .. judge for yourself

You will notice I cut the sound at about 40 seconds in .. I will leave it to your imagination as to why !!: censored: it was VERY uppy at high throttle .. I should have put some downthrust on the motors and I think it might have been a little tail heavy

Well .. A real quickie repair, need lots more work to get it looking anything like .. BUT .. repaired enough to have another go

Put a packer under the the top of the engine mount to give the motors a bit of down-thrust, moved the battery a little further forward and .. here is the result

Retracts will need some beefing up (maybe more ply ??) not sure .??

Shame about the maiden! I think a bit of colourful language is perfectly allowable in such circumstances.

Looks better in the second video, it has a beautiful silhouette against those clouds. Very elegant!

Ouch, glad she was repairable and that you got her flying better. They always seem to fly better after a bit of crinkling.

Oh man.... what a shame. Good on you for persisting mate.
Twin motors are not easy to setup. The ding bat realy had me scratching my head... I see you set them up level with each other.... but they must be lined up on 3 axis, using you main wings flat bottom as you 'datum"......
For me mate... you either sware or cry. I choose......... both...... lol...

^Lockey, the Sea Scout looks terrific!
The only problem is that I want a full-scale one!

well Rex .. just scale it up by a few 100%

I guess when it really comes down to it ... its really just a variation on my VIXEN which is really just a variation of the famous POLARIS

I bought 23 sheets of 3mm Depron from a guy the other day (cheap) and wondered what I could make with 3 mm Depron .. any ideas guys ??

Lockey

EDIT ... I found this a long time ago .. SAF-14 .. not much info on the building of it but I did once see a couple of videos and it seemed to fly real nice (tried to find the videos but it seems these have gone too) .. I see its on Park Jets (http://www.parkjets.com) but cant get any info .. seems its not there any more .. is anyone a member ?? and could check it out for me

I could reverse engineer it I guess I do have a few pics and REAL rough drawings .. the whole thing is designed to be made from 3mm Depron

This was designed by a guy named Eduardo Flores .. just did a search on You-Tube and you wouldn't believe how many guys with the same name there are .. doh!!
