motor for a shock flyer or similar planes.

I have an AXI 2208-34 on a shock flyer and it works great with 3 Lipolys in series and a phoenix 10 ESC. The motor and ESC stay cool. I can fly for 15 to 20 minutes (ususally at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle) on a 700 mah 3-S lipoly. I am still learning alot about electrics having started with them only 4 months ago. I like to build planes out of blue cor, however I don't know what engine, thrust, engine weight, and current draw ESC is best. I have an AXI 2212-34 with a phoenix 25 on 3-lipolys from an old Southern X2 however it seems too heavy for my 30 inch ultimate bipe I built from Tim Hart's design. I would like to try some of the PJS motors on 3S lipolys and use them in a shock flyer or the 30 inch ultimate bipe. Can anyone tell me which PJS will work well with plenty of thrust (equivalent to the AXI 2208-34)and similar weight and what ESC it needs. Thanks. Sagan

Your 2212-34 is exactly the same weight as the 350c brushed motor the Ultimate was originally powered by! Try it with a GWS 11x4.7 and 3s 1200mah and I bet its enough power to make you happy.

Thanks hotairflyer. I am going to be building an edge 540 design similar to the shock flyer out of blue cor but I have increased the wingspan from 32 inches to 36 inches and the fuse and tail are also larger by about 10 to 15%. Can anyone suggest a motor set up for this ship. Is the 2212-34 with the phoenix 25 and 3S lipo a good match or do I need more. Sagan

An Axi 2212 and Phx25 on 3s can pull over 20oz.

Go to the bottom of the page and you will see many links to Ultimate and 3DX which is similar to the planes you want to build, all originally powered by the GWS 350C motor. The 2212-34 will have lots more power and last longer so I think you are good to go.
