and painting.servos in just ailerons too cover.then start covering top wing.

but being me i bought the same motor someware else half the price.

anyway chaps will try post some pics soon.

Thread: does more mah=more power

thanks for help...think im begging to get it.....
motors come in all differant the kv rating also the rpm.
so eg a 4500kv will give a higher rpm then a 2200kv
therefore giving more thrust higher watts and draw more amps so also a higher rating
esc would be needed....
i wish id studied harder at school......
thanks for your help....

hi all.i need more power.
im using a 300mah 3s 20c pack for a small wing.
havnt flown it yet but think i need more power.the motor is about 1240kv outrunner.with a 20a esc.
will a 500mah pack give me more ooomph.or more time.
would a bigger prop help..its a 5x4 at the moment.
or will i need a bigger motor....
the problem is its only a 19inch flying wing so too much weight and it might not fly
thanks for any advice...

iv always been into ic. been playing with leccy but just epp flying wings.
i think its all down to how well you can solder.....
been using those mini deans on my latest very small wing and they really test your soldering abilities......
my conclusion is if you can solder........go leccy
if you cant go ic............

hi martyn.have you flown it any more yet.
i have a question about engine choice.
i was going to use an sc52 four stroke.but i bought an old cub just to run in the sc52
but it flies so well ive decided to keep it...the other 4st i have is an sc70.
i know you used a saito 70 so how did that work with the c of g.
did you have to add any weight to front or back.ive checked to specs on the saito
and the weight is 470g compared to the 650g for the sc70.
any help would be great thanks...

if theres a mistake to make ill make it.
im enjoying building this kit and so far no quality problems at all.
trying to take it slow as it was intended to be my winter project.

ok first mistake,im on the 3rd wing section and counted the ribs i got left,
then i noticed the 2 root ribs on each wing panel are thicker then the rest,oopps.
so now the last wing panel will be made up with mostly the thicker ribs,
option 1 would be to make up some new ribs and use them
option 2 would be to use the thicker ones and maybe even sand them down a bit
so that the lateral balance wouldnt be affected too much.
im not worried about the fact that the root ribs are thinner then they should be,
dont think that would make much differance.
