Hi, need some advice please, I've come across a 'Hyperion YAK 55 SP' recently, (38.6" span , suggested motor is a HP-Z3007-26) and I would like to put a brushless set up into it.

Has anybody done this or what motor, speed controller, battery would you recommend?

kind regards

4-Max/Purple Power dont list the Hyperion Z3007-26, but they do list the Z3007B-24

The 3007-26 is spec'd as follows:

15-20 Amp on 2-3S LiPo's @ 1240Kv

Wattage on 3S - 7x4 Prop = 142, 8x4= 190, 8x6 = 283

The 4-max Equivalent might be the PPPO-2837-1120 details **LINK** here a little slower RPM but a little more torque

BUT it depends on what prop you want to use
