my opinion...

I love the idea.... it plays to the geek in me... and i can think of quite a few scale modles where this would be perfect for..

However....

the realist says.. the benifit you get from torque cancellation and thus no need for right thrust correction to the motor mount.... is outweighed by the cost and complexity of the motors.....

The only one I have seen was a double cd rom custom at the Metrodome fun fly in Oct 07. Extremely noisey, but lots of power. I'm going to wait and buy a scorpion one. That's my favorite brand!

If I ever think to build a scale model of the Northrop YB-35, I know at least I can get the props right!

Hello: Frostman here I am trying to find out if anyone has done any testing on the CR28M counter rotating setup? I want to use it with 9x6 3 blade props but I am worried about overloading them. Can anyone help?
Please PM me with any information you have, Thank You...

Default HiMax vs Elemodel

Hi Guys
I am impressed by the ElE CR28M contra-motor. Is the thrust really 1320 gm?
The Himax motor CR2805 has a thrust of 681 gm. Although the motors are not identical, yet the thrust difference is huge.
Can anyone help with a comparison?
Thanks

mkarim,

Did you conduct a thrust test on the CR2805 or did u get that thrust number from somewhere else? Is that with the standard 7x5 APC props at 10 amps? Thanks!

I am quoting figures provided by the manufacturer (HIMAX). I believe the figure is with the standard 7x5 APC props, don't know the current rating. I am assuming the thrust is with the maximum allowed current.

Could you provide me with the link to where you found that data? I have been looking for a while, but I have not been able to find it.

A copy of a reply from "Dean" at Maxx Products (http://www.maxxprod.com/mpi/mpi-266.html):
There is no test data for the thrust. Theroeticaly it should be about 24 oz".
"That is 24 oz for the CR2805 and 40 oz for the CR2816".
These are theoretical values - not measured values.
Hope this helps.

Default Pusher contra rotating-> how to do it?

Im in the meddle step of a XB-42 Mixmaster bomber full depron construction.

It will be motorised, as the rela one, with 2 contra rotating motors.

My calculations shows thata it will have a AUW of 2,5 Kilos.

My questions, if somebody could kindly help me :

1)A contra rotating motor set wit 1.320 grams will make it take off from a grass
runway?

2)The Xb-42 is a PUSHER bomber, how should the contra rotating electric motors AND PROPELLERS BE POSITIONED AND ADJUSTED?

YHANKS A LOT FOR THE HELP, WATTFLYER IS A PLACE FULL OF VERY KIND FLYING PEOPLE !
