Finished my PZ Spitfire Heads Up conversion a week ago. The reason for the
conversion is the original brick's ESC smoked itself, so it was a good time
to convert to the Spectrum system and a better power plant.

These are the components from Heads Up :
Motor : 2826-11 Outrunner
ESC : 32A Power Up
Prop : 9x6E
Lipo : 3s 2200mah 25C Flightmax

Wattage/Amperage data measured with a SuperWhatt-meter.

1/2 throttle 6A 81watts
3/4 throttle 13A 160watts
Full throttle 19.5A 224watts

Interesting to note that the WOT readings were super close to Jeff's
data for that motor/prop/lipo.

Plane flies great !, use 1/2 to 3/4 throttle most of the time, WOT gives
almost unlimited vertical ! More than high enough for these tired eyes !!

Motor was put on a hand built mount from 2 pieces of 1/8 birch plywood,
and 4 nylon spacers from ACE. Put 3 washers in the upper right corner
of the mount for the offsets. See the pictures...
