I have a Freedom 20 that was built many years ago, I want to convert it to Electric. The weight is 2 lbs with no motor or battery, I guess about 60 oz flying weight with motor and battery. Does anyone have recommendations about motors?

Thanks
Keith

Take a look at an Axi 2820/10 with a 3S pack that can put out at least 45 amps such as a Tanic 3s2P 4440 or Thunder Power 4200. You will also need at least a 40 amp ESC. A Castle Creations Phoeinx 60 would be great but a Phoenix 45 would work. You will also need a UBEC or receiver battery to power the servos. An APC 12*6 or 11*7 E prop should be a good starting point.

I flew a Freedom 20 on a O.S. 25 for many years and it was a great little plane.

How many servos do you need for this plane? If using four or less on a 3S pack, it shouldn't be necessary to run a UBEC or RX pack.

I am planning 3 servos, to fly this. Hopefully I can find a power setup that I can use on other planes. I found the Hyperion P51 plane that looks great.

I have found both AXI 2814/12 and Eflight Power 25 that I thought might work.
