Hi guys my next project is a sportsman avaition 30 size waco bipe. This is the power train I have in a Sky Raider mach 11 and it goes well.Multiplex Airplane Motor System with Li-Poly: With this system you get incredible vertical performance and 30 minute flight times! We include the Multiplex BL480-4G Brushless motor with 4.33-1 Planetary Geardrive (http://www.nesail.com/detail.php?productID=2941), Phoenix 45 (http://www.nesail.com/detail.php?productID=1455) Sensorless, Speed Control, 3S 3P 6000 mah ThunderPower Li-Poly Battery (http://www.nesail.com/detail.php?productID=2211), APC, prop, Prop adapter, and all connectors and hardware.I will keep in touch and let you know how it goes. Has anyone done a conversion on this model? I would love to hear from you.
Cheers,
Stolly.

Stolly,
Not familiar with the Sportsman avaition 30 size waco bipe. Do have a site where I could see it?

Thanks,

Thanks for the comeback.
Looking around over here to see if it could be had locally. Found some listings for Sportsman Aviation, but they don't list the model that you have. You got me going in the right direction though.
Thanks,

I don't think you'll find it via U.S. channels anymore. Hobby People used to carry it, but discontinued it about a year ago.

Hi guys, I'm flying the Waco with an AXI 282010, 11x7E Master airscrew wood prop, 40amp controller and 2 x Maxamps 2100 3s packs. (I set my timer for 6mins)

Flys great must have 30 flights under it's belt, bit of a bugger to land, fairly draggy frame so you have to fly it in or it tends to fall out of the sky unpowered.

PS take the spats off and stick on some bigger wheels, super tuff plane, I've cartwheeled mine tons of times only bending the landing gear.

Joe,

1. What's your all up weight?
2. How many amps does your setup draw?
3. When you say 2 batteries ... do you mean in series or hooked up parallel?

Thanks,

Colin.

Colin, AUW is 1540grams, pulls 39 amps static with the wood prop, a couple less with the APC-E prop but there's a big difference in performance (wooden one better). Two 11.1v 2100mah in parallel so I can pull the 40amps.

In case your wondering the red plastic motor mount is a cheap Robbie speed 600 mount with no mods just bolt everything up.
