OK,
So far after the bizillion questions I have asked about motors I have finally decided to listen to the overall concensus of the many expirienced folks on WattFlyer.
I promise not to bounce too many more Ideas out there and choose a motor. It seems to me that AXI is one of the most favorite motors of subscribers. So instead of "trying" another pjs I am thinking of getting a 2808/24 for my plane.

It is an EPP Miracle 900 from HL and is advertised as having 19oz.FW.
I have TP2100 3s, TP1320 3s and PQ1800 3s Batteries and my only question is this...

Is this suitable for this battery and slightly overpowered for this plane?
Will it be capabil of extreme 3d manuvers such as somewhat easy hovering? (ok,thats two)

If so what would the aproximate thrust rating with an 11.47 and 12.6 apc sf prop. Amps look like around 20
Comments...recomendations...past experiences appreciated.
Thank You
Joe

I fly a 2808/24 on a 28oz SA 480 Groove using a 11X5.5E APC
Pulls 26amps @ 265 watts. Unlimited vertical, ROG's in 5'.

Answer to question #1
No on the PQ1800 and yes on the TP 2100 but only if its a Pro Lite. The TPG2 2100's wont cut it, Ive tried.

#2
Prop down to around a 10X5 prop and you would probably be in the 20amp range and your batteries should be ok, but you wont be using the full potential of this motor. However, that plane will be light enough you wont need to.

I put a 2808/24 in a GWS Formosa one time. It was ballistic power wise, but was on the heavy side for doing anything slow. Is was great fun for blasting around the field exceeding the speed of foam and VERY unlimited verticals, but my G2 TP2100's paid the price.

I would suggest you go with a 2212/26, use your existing batteries, and come in lighter weigh wise then you would with 2808.

Thanks Rugar,

I think I have figured out my issue with the battery.:o duh
I have TP2100 which I thought were good but now I see there is a new version TP2100 Prolite I thought they were the same...How long have these been out on the market?

I just got these TP2100 from HL like 2 months ago but looking at the pack it reads10-12c cont 16c burst. I noticed in on the HL web site that there is also an additional lead for the balencer...my packs have only one lead.
the site shows a discharge rate of 15c cont and 20c bursts.

So I might go with both the new 2100prolite and whcich would be your suggestion on an AXI Motor for 2100prolite batts and 11" prop?

Thanks
Joe

The 2100PL has been out for several months now.

If you can get that plane to balance with the 2808 and the 2100 pack, and get a 11" prop to clear, it would be a rocket ship. Throttle management would be a must.
