I pulled out my Bigger size Shrike that I built last year, and added a NEW motor to bring it to life !!!
I got a JustGoFy 500th 3300kv (http://justgofly.com/Order%20Form.htm#500_Motors) and boy does this little plane move on for a Blue Cor plane.
I also added an Air Duct to the left side (Bright Green) to help keep the Battery and ESC cooler.
I then replaced the foam rudder and elevator with a 1/8" sheet balsa .

Setup:
500th 3300kv
32amp esc
3s1p 2100mAh
APC 5.7x3 sport

I have a video posted .....
It was real bad windy, but the plane cut right through it just fine.

500th Spec. from JustGoFly
57 grams
32.6 mm diameter
Kv: 3381
IO: 2.4 amps @10v
RM: .0172
36 amp max
400 Watts


I am running an APC 5.7x3 sport
static amps is 33 and watts 325 or so.
The motor never gets hot, just does get warm
after a 10 min fast flight.
I could do more if I had a battery that could put out better.
The 3s I am running is over 1yr old and drops to 10 volts real quick
when checking with my Watt meter.

Well I planted the Shrike in the ground like a lawn dart. Should have took a crash pic but forgot to.

The rebuild turned out looking better than the original.
Also much stiffer. I added fiberglass in a few places also covered the plane with Ulta Kote on the fuze.

I have plans to make an even larger Shrike that will be glassed all over.

Let me know what you think of the new pics??
