Default Brushless parkzone spitfire performance

Hi all, I have followed the other threads on a brushless conversion, but was wondering if anyone could give me an idea as to how they fly when converted I was planning to use a park 450

Thanks all....

Mine flies very well! Use a computer radio and a better motor than eflite if you can afford it. AXI 2808/24 is what I use. 2212/20 would also work well, that's what I use in my Parkzone P-51 and FW-190.

E-Flite makes GREAT motors! Their ESCs is another story. A Park 450 will fly the heck out of her friend! I would go with a 450, 25A ESC and a 10x7 thin electric APC prop. I fly my P-47 withthat setup and she moves!

Sorry, I have no personal experience with the AXI motors, but if Gohmer says their good, then they probably are. Good luck and keep us posted.

Smile Mount

I don't know if it will fit the 450 mount. I made my own with two eflite stick mounts and a piece of 3/8" basswood between them mounted on a piece of 1/16"plywood. Motor shaft should be centered on a line between the stock top motor mount holes. 40 amp esc for the 28 series and 30 amp for the 22 series motor.
