I weighed my Potensky 30W. I got the version with the threaded shaft and 'wobbly' type prop adapter.

On my scale:
Motor + prop adapter = 18g
Motor mount + set screw = 2g
Everything = 20g

My scale is only accurate down to 1 gram.

Tim,

A small correction to the servo data:
Claimed weight for Waypoint W-060 servo is 6.0g not 6.6g.
However the Waypoint W-060BB has a claimed weight of 6.6g.
I've just got my hands on a few of the W-060BB so I'll report back in a few weeks when they've had a little use. Not much point in my weighing them as my scale is only accurate to 1g.

BTW Sorry for the delay in Version 2 of the lists, the shop is a little crazy this time of year. Still adding to it and I will get it posted after Christmas.

FULLRIVER cells


Fullriver 250mAh and 300mAh cells.
All data from supplier. I've just ordered a couple of the 250 cells so I should be able to report back on these in a couple of weeks.

Single cells:

Fullriver 250mAh
10C capable, 20C in bursts
36x20x5.5mm
6.55g including wires

Fullriver 300mAh
10C capable, 20C in bursts
36x20x6mm
6.73g not including wires

These cells look like pretty good value.

I'm flying the Fullriver 250's on an assortment of planes and I love them. Nothing comes close to their weight. My two cell 250 packs weigh 14.5 grams with 2 inch wires and mini Deans connector. I just got 4 more of them today.

Over in the Batteries for indoor pattern thread, the Fullriver 300's are reported to not hold their voltage quite as well as the 250's.

Aidan, i have noticed your onto the WP 6.6g BB servos ! You will be well pleased with them ,there super speedy i rate them quicker than my 4.4g titch and with my style of flying the sure stand up to the bashing . Im sure a man of your wisdom could knock 1-1.5g of the weight ! This would leave them on a par with the titch and off course they cost alot less .

Hi all,
i'm new to this but very interested...got a gram scale for Christmas and my life changed... now I'm weighing everything in sight!!

3 questions:

1. The E-Flite S60 is listed as weighing 6.0 gms but has a notation that says lightest flying weight is 4.15 gms. What exactly is removed that weighs 1.85 gms?

2. The CC T-bird 9 is listed as 8 gms and the BSDM custom CCTb9 is listed as 4.6 gms. The BSDM site says they're using lighter weight wires. Are the wires shorter, or thinner, or both? If the answer is thinner what AWG are they?

3. Can you solder up 2 Full River 250's into a 500 mah pack or does the voltage chahge to 7.4 and the mah stays at 250? Do you solder them in series or parallel? Also, do you need a balancer circuit of some sort between the cells?

Thanks for any answers you can offer.

If you solder them in series you get a 7.4 volt, 250mah pack. If you solder them in parallel you get a 3.7 volt, 500mah pack.

Thunderbird 6


Seems there's a new ESC worth looking at.
Castle creations have a new Thunderbird 6 on their website.
It looks to be ideal for F3P.
6 Amp ESC that weighs 4g (advertised).
