Default Conversion Assistance needed

A friend and I are wanting to convert our planes to all electric. He has a 40 gasser (Great Planes we think) and I am assembling a PT 25 Gyro.
Has anyone out there made these conversions and will you be willing to "talk" us through our conversions? Thank You in advance.

Nitro airplanes always made me laugh when I read the labels and then groan when I read the price tag. The nitro planes as a "general" rule convert easily to electric, but sometimes do not fly well. The reason behind this is that most are built/designed for tremendous vibration and stress of nitro motors and are "over" structured and re-inforced. Do not misunderstand I like a good deal many of the planes designed for nitro power and own and fly a couple today. The most notable of these is a Skooter II of the quickie 500 ilk.

Nitro planes are ALWAYS UNDERATED for POWER. On the labels for the nitro planes ALMOST every one will have a power preference as well as a "suggested" power for the plane. Both are ordinarily "marginal" with the stated power being extremely inadequate and the larger "suggested" power being marginal at best. Thus a .25 plane for the most part almost requires a strong .40 or better for any performance with that airplane. Most all modlers except this little inside industry joke and overpower their models accordingly.

Electric models and motors for the most part are not part of the industry joke. They actually do perform up to their catagorical standard - for the most part. Some manufacturers overrate their motors for amp draw and kv(rpm) but if they do it is very quickly outed here in the modeling community!!

Motors are rated three ways. Kv - Rpm they will turn PER VOLT SUPPLIED.
AMPs - The amount of electricity it will take to make the motor perform.
(Amps is VERY variable dependent upon the "stress" the motor is subjected to via the prop size and pitch angle used!)
Last a motor is usually measured in WATTS produced for a given setup.
You will want to try to get close to the standard chart to start with and later you may vary this to suit yourself.

Trainer = should be equal to at least 75 watts per aircraft AUW pound.
Sport = Should be equal to at least a 100 watts per AUW pound.
Scale/Aerobatic = should be at least 150 or better watts per AUW pound.

AUW = All Up Weight. Weight of the aircraft READY for flight.
WOT = Wide Open Throttle

Generally speaking a 25 sized motor will produce the thrust equal/better than a .25 glow - usually closer to a .30 to .35 two stroke.

Generally speaking a 32 motor will produce the thrust equal/better to a .40 glow motor - usually closer to a .46 to .50 two stroke.

There is a lot more for you to learn but those are some mere highlights.

I can lost more if you want but most all the things you will need to know or learn are right here in the forum.

1. get a E Flite Power 46, you will have pleanty of power, as these motors are a little under rated.
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...rce=google_ext

2. get a 80 amp ESC, its bigger than whats needed, but a larger ESC will stay cooler and last longer. hurry, these sell out fast

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=3727

3. you will need a UBEC, here is a 10 amp UBEC from Castle Creation.
http://www.bphobbies.com/view.asp?id...0&pid=B3144784

http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/show...t=ubec+chellie

4. use a APC 12x6 prop. or APC 12x8 prop, better yet, get both to do some testing with.

5. use a 5 cell lipo. 5000mah 25C Rated

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=8585

Hope that helps to get you started, use Paypal when shopping over seas, Take care, Chellie

Also Dr Gyro Get a WATTMETER, its a must have to check your Amp draw, and to keep everything from frying up here is a inexpensive Wattmeter that will get the job done, there are more expensive wattmeters out there, but these work great. Hope that helps, Chellie

yes your right there Hank I like the cell pro, but with a 5 cell lipo, he will have to get the cell pro 10 I belive,

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=7028

My flying club members like this Balance charger a lot, get 2 of these charger, one for a back up at $22.99 each, how can you go wrong

Hi Chellie
I agreethat quite similar to my supermate and a great price

Thats a very nice charger, sadly TP discontinued mine, wish i could get another

they have 3 gyro types, but since your converting a heavy nitro PT 25 gyro to electric, you will need the larger power 32 e motor.

http://www.flyingbalsa.com/

The Doozy kit - e power

The PT profile - e power

The PT 25 Kit - Nitro

Thumbs up My Request

WOW, What an outpouring of help from my request! Thank You guys and GAL for all the input. I feel like I have recieved so much informantion that when I go to my shop this morning, my conversion will have already been completed due to your input.
I am going to follow each link and read it all and go from there. I can't go wrong with all this info. I will keep you all posted on our progress. Thanks Again!!!!

Default More Questions

Chellie, First of all I do Thank You for your input and realize that you went out of your way to send me all the links related to your recomended parts.
I have a few questions after reading the information.
After I learn to fly this autogyro I intend to build a scale model of a Bensen Gyrocopter. I would want to swap all electrics from this to the new one. The new Gyro will be built with aluminum tubing and may be a bit heavier than the PT. Will all my electronics be sufficient (power wise)for the swap?
You reccomended bigger engines and batteries for the trainer plane, Why?
The autogyro's have a lot more drag than the fixed wings. I used to fly a full scale Bensen (Still have it) and we used a lot more power (and fuel) for the same airspeed as a fixed wing with the same powerplant and similar weights.

Hi Dr Gyro The GP Trainer is a Glow plane thats being converted to E Power, nitro planes are heavier than a E Power plane, so you need to use a E Motor that bigger than a 40 Equall to give you the power to fly right, on the gyro, that requires a 25 to 40 size glow engine, a power 32 Motor, will give you the power of a 40 nitro, they are a underated E Motor, with out being to heavy, Sooo what I wanted to do is Give you the power of a 40 nitro for the Gyro, and the power of a 50 Nitro for the GP trainer Plane, because the 40 GP Nitro trainer is heavier than than a 40 E Power Plane, and I wanted to give you the E power of a 40 Nitro for the gyro, with out being to heavy, If you feel you need more power than the 40 for the Gyro, use the same Power system for the GP Trainer, Look at the Motor weight and the battery weight to see if it will work for you with out being to heavy, weight is one of the killers with E power, its a Balancing Act to say the Least, Hope that helps, Chellie

Ok Chellie, That all makes sense to me. Forgive me for these petty questions but remember, this electric thing and R/C's are new to me. The gasser's are much easier to understand, fill it up and fly it. The transition from large full scale to micro is a learning experience to say the least.
Thank You for taking the time to answer my questions.
Here's what I'm moving down from!
Hope you have a Great day!

Hi
Awesome machine
Did you build her yourself? and do you fly her on a regular basis?
Im quite jealous

Default Gyrocopter

Hi Hank, Yes I built it myself. I found a Bensen airframe never assembled and went from there. I only flew this one three or four times and it has about four hours TTSN. Some personal things got in the way soon after I completed it and I just never flew it again. This gyro was my fifth gyro and I flew four of the others many times. I have not flow in over eight years and this one was just put up for sale. When I built it the basic kits on the market were $14,000. It didn't include the instruments, prerotator and lot of things on mine. I thought I could beat the 14K price....I was wrong by a long shot. New buyer gets a Great deal.

Thank You for taking the time to answer my questions.
Here's what I'm moving down from!
Hope you have a Great day!
