Technical Links


Thought I would start a new thread that has links to technical information. I stumbled across this one when I was doing a Google search for something else. It is about paper airplanes and has some good info on Reynolds number and other wing information.

Great benchmarks to use when thinking about buying a new motor or prop. He updates it periodically. Use it and love it or else!

i didn't know where to post this info so here it is.

i spoke with the guy at Parma hobby Sat. and he said he was going to have a CDrom motor winding class. Tommy, i guess you mentioned it to him. although he didn't have dates, he said it should be soon. he will also provide the kit. i'm assuming the class will cost just a few dollars over kit price.
BTW, for those of you (like me) who didn't know, Parma gives a 10% discount to club members. i guess being a NCEF member has some percs after all.

Jack, we are going to do a clinic. Check Jim's thread. Parma Hobby has asked nothing from us at this time. Their really treating us good.

Neat page with a calculator to help you determine CG and other things when you input your measurements. Could prove useful to scratch builders.

I put the 370 4100 Kv in MotoCalc with a 9 x 6 prop and a 3s 1320 Lipo:

Batt Amps = 25.7
Motor Amps = 25.7
Motor Volts = 9.3
Input (W) = 239.7
Loss (W) = 206.3
MGbOut (W) = 33.5
MotGb Ef(%) = 14.0
Shaft Ef(%) = 11.7
Prop RPM = 5553
Thrust (oz) = 9.6
PSpd (mph) = 31.6
Prop Ef(%) = 0.0
Total Ef(%) = 0.0
Time (m:s) = 3:05

With a 12 x 6 prop.....

Batt Amps = 24.7
Motor Amps = 24.7
Motor Volts = 9.4
Input (W) = 232.4
Loss (W) = 214.7
MGbOut (W) = 17.7
MotGb Ef(%) = 7.6
Shaft Ef(%) = 6.5
Prop RPM = 3062
Thrust (oz) = 9.3
PSpd (mph) = 17.4
Prop Ef(%) = 0.0
Total Ef(%) = 0.0
Time (m:s) = 3:12
