Just noticed this. I've successfully used eMax GT motors for 3 ic to electric conversions recently. I get then from Totem Hobbies.

My DB DH60 Moth weighs probably about what the Hurricane does and flies well on an Emax GT3526/05 and the kv is 710 rpm/volt. The maximum quoted thrust is 3.3kg and it weighs 265 grams. It turns a 13x6 prop at around 8.9k rpm with a 4S LiPo pack.

You may feel like a little more power than the 550 watts I get but this is the area you should be considering. You could go for 5S rather than 4S for instance.

Hi Geoff,I will be using a 5s lipo,4500 or 5000 30 or 35 c,with a 13x10 prop,as recommended with the overlander thumper motor at 800kv,60w esc.

Taking mine up to maiden it tomorrow, 5 months between completion of build and first wind beneath its wings.

All the best B, VC. With a bit of luck I'll get mine up the field today, just make sure you have the elevator on a rate switch as I find mine very pitchy with the BH settings (common theme with Hurricanes) that way you can tame it down if necessary.

Let us know how you get on

Thanks, Chris. Just charging up a new set of LiFes and then it's all systems da di da di da. Probably I'll bottle out.

Still haven't got the hang of idle down and throttle cut on the futaba 14sg, had to abort after setting it up, as I thought, last night.

I'll have a read of my kindle book and see if I can get on top of it.

Apart from that, the systems test went ok, engine started and ran a tank of fuel through, didn't really want to but I had no way of stopping the little devil blush.

B,VC. I had a flight this afternoon after flying a couple of other models to get my thumbs calibrated. By that time the cloud had set it.

Can't say I enjoyed it as it was a silhouette most of the time, but at least it was nowhere as pitchy as before smiley

It was a slight cross wind and I landed with 1/2 flap (boy does it slow up - the devil of electric!) and cam in nicely just under 1/2 throttle. Couple of scale bounces and no damage so a success.

I really need to get a grip of full flap landings so perhaps on a day with better light and wind down the runway.

PM me if you want he TX settings.
