|Thread: Unexpected Watts from new motor|
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

|Thread: Motors for PA-12|
Thats good to know Frank, and only drawing 15 amps so my 33amp ESC should be OK, thanks for the info .
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

Now I,m bit confused I am going to pick up a Pilot 1 PA-12 Tomorrow and according to JP's websites recommends a these about 140 watt but all the reviews i have seen and even the instructions recommend's a AIX 2217/10 about 200 watt which is a lot more powerful the all up weight is 1000gm has anyone got one , or had contact with one and info would be grateful.

|Thread: Myron is in hospital|
All the best Myron get better soon an opportunity to do a nice build while on the mend dont let him get to grumpy Chrissy
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: Pick a Plane 2011|
yep i would go for that as well
|Thread: how many member's on the forum|
but not to many trees in the Falkland islands and plently of open space .
|Thread: Plasti- dip|
Thanks for the update Chris better then to buy small tins then pour just whats needed
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
