If you subscribe to FlyRC magazine, they reported on Multiplex's new DogFighter. User items needed to complete are of course the motor, ESC and Rx. In the article they said that the flying weight is 1.8 pounds ( 29.25oz ) and with the motor etc. they used produced 477 watts, they are getting approx. 265 watts per pound !!!!!!!!!.... whoa !!!! I thats a heck of a lot of watts per pound ! I would think I would be looking for something around 100 to 150 watts per pound.
The data on the motor etc. they used for the article are :
Motor : Max 3516-1350
ESC : 54 amp
Battery: 2200 mah 3S
Prop: 10x7 APC
Since I trashed my Spitfire with motor and ESC from Jeff with the following stuff now available to me, see http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/show...8&postcount=94
Motor : 2826-11 Outrunner
ESC : 32A Power Up
Prop : 9x6E
Lipo : 3s 2200mah 25C
1/2 throttle 6A 81watts
3/4 throttle 13A 160watts
Full throttle 19.5A 224watts
Since I don't want to burn up the sky, I just want to put a little hole in it, would the above setup work ok in the DogFighter ? If not, can someone or Jeff make some recommendations ?
Or in the future if someone buys this plane post in this thread what you did and how it worked ?
As you can guess I am looking for a replacement for the Parkzone Spitfire I trashed a week ago... The DogFighter or the fullsize Parkzone T28 are at the moment my possible picks. Since I have a spare motor and electronics from the Spitfire the DogFighter looks interesting and less expensive.
