I had a 1500 mah 2s lipo in my Beaver, on the stock 350 brushed motor and it flew great. Now with 3s, and the floats it should be faster, but the more power will help too. I'm not sure on the size of the motor. How much does it weigh?

Be careful with loops, and dives.

I have flown one with a 1300 3s lipo and a park 300 before as well. So if the weight is close to that I don't see why it wouldn't be fine.

My E-Starter is about done. I picked up some gws floats and am thinking about building another E or buying a GWS Beaver and putting the floats on it.

My question is, would my 2409-18T, 1550 3s LiPo setup I have now in my e-starter be too much for the Beaver?!?

I have searched and read, but see no one with this type setup. I am sure it would take some modding to get the battery in and some reinforcements in the wing as usual but whaddya think??

The 2409-18 will work great :D More power ;-) take care and have fun, Chellie


my friend Jay is flying all 3 planes

Have a friend that flies that very motor on his GWS Beaver on 3S lipos. He uses the GWS 9X7 three blade prop on it and it flies great at 1/2 throttle or less for scale-like speeds. We try to fly formation together, going up to the Lake of the Woods on Muskey fishing trips. Old Geezers have imaginations also!!!!
I still use a stock brushed gear drive with the same prop, great airplanes, Dont forget to pin the wood struts in the plastic couplers. If the glue lets go the wing will fold just carrying the weight of the plane, a MUST Mod!!!!!!!!!! I Know...........
