Default Stryker speed

I just got my stryker a couple days ago and love it but i want it to be a little faster. I was hoping i could get a round 100 without having to add a lot of weight and money without lossing a lot of flight time. anybody know a good combo for this or is it even possible to get all of the above at the same time?

browse thru this thread and a thread named stryker how far can i take it? in there you should find a bunch of motor,prop,batt combos that are fast yet pretty cheap, most are hobby king motors that are between $15 and $40 each.

Hi Nightflyer, I am going to try this motor in my home made Stryker.

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=7993

I have the motor below in it now and it flys OK but it does lack speed and vertical penetration that I wanted.

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=4201

Hope to see much better vertical and flat out speed with this motor and a 6x4 prop.

Hi Old Tinman use a 3648 turnigy motor, the strykers have a lot of drag to them, so you need a strong motor to give them a big push, use a 7x6 apc prop too, they need lots of thrust to get going, Take care and have fun, Chellie

Holy Moley that is one big motor. I'm not sure that the park that I fly in is big enough for that!!

I was hoping to use the stock motor mount for the upgrade so I don't have to shell out to much money right now. I am sure that I will want another Stryker and would like to try this motor later.

Thanks for the info on the motor thou

Yea, that motor will push your stryker to about 100 MPH + with a 5 cell lipo the motor you linked to and the 6x4 prop will give you about 80 MPH on a 3 cell lipo

Strykers don't need to have a lot of drag. If you're not afraid to do some cutting, and modding, you can take most of the drag away. Here is my Stryker C mod. I cut the wings from the fuselage and cut 2" from each wingtip. I then joined the wings back together, cut an electronics bay, fabricated a new canopy, and glassed it. With 4s and a Mega 16/15/4 and 6x4 sport prop, I get consistant 125mph readings with both doppler and radar. I've bought 2 of these motors, both of them used from the classifieds on RCG for $50 or less.

It turns out I needed to have 3 or more posts in order to post a link on this forum. Well, here's number 3.

Here is the "before" photo...



And here is the finished product...
