Default Great Planes PT20 conversion

Can I use my AXI 2826/12 with a Jeti Advance 40 plus ESC in my Great Planes PT-20? I do not want to spend any more when I already have this setup laying around, finances are tight at the moment.

I think it would fit fine, you would need to cut holes for cooling, firewall mount ect. Axi list the aircraft weight range of 53-106 ounces. That's 3 to 6lbs, so as long as your plane is near that, you should be set. Great planes lists it as 3.5 to 4.5, so you should be fine. Trainers don't need much to get into the air. How heavy you end up after throwing the parts on should let you know how well it will fly.

I have that motor in an own design 52" span low winger that flies at 60oz with a 4S 3600mA LiPo on an 11.5 x 5 prop. That's 600W flat out and 'more than adequate' for a load of fun. The guy I bought the motor off had also tested it on 3S LiPo on a 13 x 6.5, which suggests a 12 x 7 would do nicely too.

Looks to be a good combo with your far more leisurely PT-20. As I recall, the PT20 has a trike UC - just watch out for prop clearance as you'll be using bigger props than the oily engines it was designed around.

Hope that helps
