RC AIRCRAFT BUILDS Electric Powered Super Chipmunk Reply To: Super Chipmunk


Well the first flight of the Super Chipmunk did not go as well as it should. The plane was way underpowered with the 14 x 7 prop only pulling 320W @ 20A.

I have replaced it with the 17 x 8 prop from the Grand Tundra and it is now pulling 640W @ 44A so that may well be enough.  Both the Motor & ESC are overrated with the online info suggesting a 400kV motor & 60A esc are all that is needed.

No doubt next flying day will see.
