Bob Martin Pusycat Electric Conversion
I'm about to start building a Bob Martin's Pusycat sailplane that I had in storage. The plans have an option for Cox glow power however I'm going electric. If anyone has done this with a similar balsa plane (2m), I need the recommended motor, ESC, battery and prop sizes. Any help would be appreciated
On my cat, I had real good results with a motor pod just like this one:
There are lots of good motors out there and those will determine how much prop you want. If you dont do the pod thing, for sure go with a folding prop.
Hyperion makes a great line of motors for gliders that have tapered cases to fir into streamlined glider noses. A great place to start is with the Hyperion 3025/12 motor, a 30~50 amp ESC, and a 10x8 folder.
There is also a real good Himax brushess kit available that works awesome with 2 meter gliders, I have it in my Easy Glider Pro:
For the price, its ready to go and all matched.
Thank You Nitro!
Thank you Nitro for the quick and excellent reply. The kit is exactly what I need. Want to go with the ESC for better speed control. May get a few of these kits as I have several gliders from years ago hanging in the garage.
