A lot will depend on the batterys you are using as well I have some small motor that run nicely on a 2s lipo and run fast and hot on a 3s so as well as the prop size look at the power suplly
hope this helps a bit

 Thanks for all the replies guys. i picked the PA up on Saturday morning, at first glance it look a nice kit well put together  and finished . I found a 2217/9 840 kv (200 watt ) that I got from RCM direct  some time ago and as Erfolg says"it will depend on the prop you use"  well i going to try either a 11X 6 or 10 X 5 both apce i will test on a watt meter to see which is best suited.
Geoff please let me know how you get on with yours
 once again thanks for all the help

Thread: Shackleton

  i would guess you could convert a lancaster plan(it was developed from the lincon) to a shackleton , i had a flight in one of these when i was detached to Lossimouth they use to go on patrol and it was said that you flew as far as you could and then follow the oil slick home still a lovery airplane 
 it would make a nice model

Thread: Plasti- dip
08/11/2010 08:35:30

Thanks for the update Chris better then to buy small tins then pour just whats needed
03/11/2010 15:16:33

 Polymorth is as Tim says but I found it usefull for adding bits on to plasic figuars lifejacketts, helmets, ear phones etc dont need to spend so much on pilots then. I have used it as a mold when the cast has set warm it back up to relesse the cast ,but as Tim says its a bit heavey so i mold it round large drinking straws that bend for my pilots that mean i use less and get the shape right  and lighter but the dip will be usfull to finish things off as you can see from here lots of   MultipleColours.

There is a product called polymorph a plastic that be come pliable at 60c and can be moulded to make pilots  etc and make moulds for other things
