View Full Version : Royal 1/8 zero

11-09-2006, 05:27 AM
I purchased a royal 1/8 scale zero, 62" wingspan, expecting 10+ lbs, at a garage sale and would like to convert it to electric power at a sensible price. My planned power system is 2 6000mAh 3 cell lipos(in series), from this website http://home.comcast.net/~truerc/rea...ready_packs.htm (http://home.comcast.net/%7Etruerc/ready_pack/ready_packs.htm), a 4120-7 or 4130-8 Brushless Outrunner Motor http://home.comcast.net/~truerc/esc/escNmotor.htm (http://home.comcast.net/%7Etruerc/esc/escNmotor.htm), a 3 amp UBEC from the same site, and a HXTBSC60 hexTronik 60A Speed Controller https://www.unitedhobbies.com/UNITE...?idProduct=2062 (https://www.unitedhobbies.com/UNITEDHOBBIES/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=2062). Will this power system be powerful enough, and what size prop would be best?

Also, I would like to add retracts and was wondering if these retracts would work? http://www.rc-warbirds.com/product_...products_id/267 (http://www.rc-warbirds.com/product_info.php/cPath/71_82/products_id/267)
