Default What motor and batteries for Ripmax Spit???

Hi guys and girls,

Thinking of buying the Rimpax spitfire model, but pretty new to electric R/C.

The model is just under 1.5Kg with a wing span of 48". I want to go with a brushless outrunner motor of some discription, but there are that many of them, that it's a bit of a minefield. Then i'm not sure what to choose in the way of a speed controller.

I want to use Lipo batteries, any idea on a good combination of motor, ESC and batteries for this model

Default Spitfire Power?

Hello Gareth08, Welcome to Wattflyer!
The power recommendation for the Ripmax "Spitfire" has come up before, here's a link from last year with the same question;
The included link to RCG has pages of suggestions and a build thread. I tried to condense the most popular choices in my reply.
Here's another one;
Also, if you do a search here for "Ripmax Spitfire" you'll get quite a few other threads and posts. Most of these are from the "Warbirds" Forum (Actually there's two sub-Forums, WWI and WWII).
Hope this helps!
