I don't think it's gonna be underpowered anymore. It blew an unopened beer off my bench 6 feet away but I've still gotta weigh it and get a real static thrust measurement to be Shure.

I'm hoping for closer to 2250 watts.

It's a 108' wingspan plane. If I end up with only 2kw, I might be a little underpowered.

I had to build a 2 3/4' x 4' box for a motor mount. The DLE 55 was longer than the electric motor. I'll epoxy it all in and run 3/16' x 4' bolts through the new box and firewall to mount it....

What happens if you run 6 cells on a 3 cell motor?

Think about prop adapters before you but an electric motor. If you can't attach a prop to it, it won't do you much good flying an airplane. Shaft type adapters are plentiful and cheap but you risk...

Is it ok to mix 3c and 4c in series?

Just to clarify. Is it safe to wire two 4cs and a 3c in series to make 10c, (48ish volts) provided they are the same mah rating?
