If not building for speed : Do you guys think the stryker could be flown using an emax 2812 1500kv outrunner motor ?

Im perfectly happy with my 3900kv turnigy inrunner , i was just wondering if the motor was powerful enough , i have a couple spare as i use them on my swift , divinity and my toro wings.

Just sedate-ish flying if i want to go fast ill use the turnigy.

What do you think ?

the stock motor was around 1880kv, so ur fine just dont make it too heavy
a lot of people build light strykers and fly them indoors!

Ill give it a try , cant hurt , i only want to see if it can be tamed , something inbetween the light stryker and stock would be more than enough.

The stock motor is LISTED @ 1880kv, it is actually more closer to 2200

A 1500 kv motor would need a much different prop setup than your 3 cell 3900kv setup is now, you will probably have to start using slow fly props.
If you try 3 cells with 1500 kv, you will need a BIG prop with little pitch because you will not have alot of RPM's spinning it, and you will need all of the thrust you can generate to get her in the air.

To fly slowy-sedate-ish like................pitch could be kept low with an 8 inch slow fly prop if you are staying with 3 cells.

I read somewhere that props bigger than 6 inches can cause prop-strike issues that bend motor shafts, is he going to have an issue with bending shafts if he goes to an 8" prop?

Im going to try a 7x6 prop first as its what i have handy. The motor is quite a bit lighter and the battery is 100g, ill give it a try, if i dont like it ill just slap the 3900 back on.

Landing Speed is also a factor here. I had a shaft bend using a 7 inch prop, but I was using a heavy setup (~30 ounces) so my landing speed was quite fast compared to a Stock Weight Stryker.

I would imagine a Lightweight Stryker using an 8 inch prop can still have a slow and floaty landing. Now if the shaft on that motor is only 2.3mm, who knows...

Would running a prop saver (rubber O-ring type adapter) be a possibility on that 1500kv motor and slow flyer props? That would help immensely with the bent shaft issue.
I just don't know for sure what kind of RPM they're good for. The 13K or so on 3S with that motor may still be too much.

That looks fun finster. Very original. How did you make the augers? At first they looked like plastic soda pop bottles.
