|Thread: New RCM&E Sunderland Flying Boat|
Thanks Tony best start saving for those motors and lipo,s and I guess the plan and CNC wood pack
how long is the flight duration tony I,m asuming the lipos are 3s but must admit it would be nice with retrats
Tony that is lovey plane I have always love the plane had the Airfix kit of it when I was younger. I am in Poole and there is a history on them landing and taking off in Poole harbour
have a look on this site http://www.modelflight.com.au/manuals_general.htm to see if they have a manual for your esc that will help.
|Thread: just a question on Batteries|
Sorry guys I’m dyslexic normally write things out in word but was in a rush the morning I’m sure I meant utilizing but there again !!!!!!!!!
Thanks Timbo I guess I was on a bit of a hiding, yep your right got by "c" and "s" round the wrong way. most of the brushless motors seem to need a 3s 11.4v well on the biger models anyway. and yes it was lipos.
Back to the drawing borad I was just trying to save some money by uterlzing batteries .
I was lucky enough to been given a Hanger 9 Sopworth camel and in the instruction it shows two 2c1p 7.4v batteries wired together to provide 14.8 but with a high Mah also I have a p38 lighting I believe it’s the one from sola models that requires the equivalent to 2*.15 I.C I am hoping to get 2*TowerPro A2409-12T (200W) Brushless Motor (Tractor) & FLY 25A ESC Combo from BRC hobbies also they have 6400 Mah 7.4 batteries so I guess my question is will the batteries be able to power the P38 motors on the 7.4v individually as well as the camel wired together to product a 14.8 12800 Mah . I’m new to flying electric so any help is appreated
