Thumbs up Scratch Built Typhoon Fuselage and Pocket Rocket

I've been meaning to post these here for a while, but better late than never!

My StevePhoon-3D
Balsa Fuselage with Typhoon 3D Wings and Tail,
Motor - PowerUp 400 SloFly.
ESC - PowerUp 20 Amp
Servos - 2 9gm SG90e (the really cheap ones!) The original Aileron servos are also still in use.
Flys great with a 1300 mAh 3s battery and a APC 10x4.7 SF prop. It's quite a bit lighter than the stock Typhoon with this setup.





Pocket Rocket scratch build from plans from pd1.
Motor - EMax CF2822
ESC - Mag8 TowerPro 18 Amp
Servos - 2 SG50 5 gm for Tail 1 SG90e for ailerons.
I was worried about how tight this motor felt, but it's been great. Very efficient with a GWS8040 prop and a 1000mAh 3s battery. It never spins as free while at rest as comparied to my other motors. Maybe the magnets are actually better??

Steve

I've actually used that exact set up (except for a different ESC) on a Tower Trainer, and it flew great. The only problem is prop clearance. You have to mount the motor a little high, and even then you won't be able to take off from grass unless it's cut quite short. You might consider using a 4S 3200 25C Lipo and a TP 11x5.5 prop, and you will have plenty of prop clearance, and even better performance.

Running the 2836-22 inrunner on my Stryker, works good. Using my RCSpeedo app I had an average speed of 75mph on honest runs and mid 80's in a dive. Not a speed demon but a good lightweight set up using an 1800mah 3S.

Default Ace 1/2A Pacer

Just about finished a vintage (1974) Ace 1/2A Pacer I found on RCU. Jeff came thru again with help on the motor size/type. 2830-11 installed.
Keep trying to find excuses to place an order with Jeff. Just can't help myself!!!

trmcrft,

That's looking very nice! I have the 2830-11 in my MM Eva and it's a great motor. It's been through two flying seasons with zero issues. I'm using a PowerUp 20 Amp ESC and a GWS EP9050 prop as recommended by Jeff. It's a good setup with the EVA. It's actually a little too fast for that plane. I ripped off an aileron once because of high speed flutter.

Should be ballistic!

ONLY on that pic! Still can't upload the Pacer! Even tried resizing it.

Finally! But too much backround clutter (airplanes!)

I hate to post it, cuz it's not Jeff's fault at all.

Made entirely from scraps and leftovers, including
EMAX CF2805 2800KV motor
GWS 5030 prop
TowerPro 5G servos
PowerUp 10A ESC

Despite its ghastly looks, it's actually a sweet, fun plane to fly.
