Now to my question:
I'm just getting into fpv and just completed a Bixler with all the mods I can find (too many to mention here) from a kit. I bought the Emax 2836-24 Inrunner Brushless Motor from Head's Up and plan on flying the plane before I install any fpv equipment. I've run it up on the stand and that motor screams with a 6x4 APC pusher prop. However, I've only been into electrics for about a year and a half and was wondering if this is enough motor for that plane loaded down with equipment. It seems to me that it is but I've never built a foamy and am new to brushless motors of this size. Am I on the right track? By the way, I'm running a 30a ESC with a 2200mah 3s lipo. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
You might be a little short of power if the Bixler is heavily loaded. I suggest that you try to get an accurate weight of the model when it's fully loaded. If it comes in under 28 oz, then the 2836-24 should do the job for you. If the model weighs more than that, you can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
for a power recommendation.
