From the side the motor is pointing down; extending the thrustline forward is extending it up (above the nose of the plane).

Turnigy TY-P1 25 Amp Hexfet ESC

Has anyone had any experience with this ESC? Apparently it is one of the few that HK offers with 3.5 motor and T battery connectors already installed.

Nitro Popwing and Props

Maybe a dumb question, but . . . do flying wings, like the Nitro Popwing series, require a PUSHER prop, or simply a regular prop with the motor running backwards?????

The numbers Pizzano gave are the one I put into eCalc, plus 313 sq" for the wing area. The advice was basically "Don't fly with the stock 9.5X7.5 prop!" Makes one wonder about accuracy of eCalc.

But that makes it seem that the 9.5X7.5 is marginal at best. That's why I wonder what prop owners are really using. Thanks pizzano, that is what I was looking for.
