+1 Need more F5D.

F5D limiter on the way to install into my Jolt to prove my setup is legal, then race on with new shiney Pyro sitting up front.

Pink = fastest.

With f5d rules...1000w/min...Does that mean if i run a 5s (17.5v) i can only draw 57a max? Any mre than that and id be over 1000w...is that how it works? :shock:

Its 1000W/min

So if you take 1 minute to complete 10 laps, you can use 1000W average, take 70S and you only get 833W average. Do it in 50s and you can have 1160W.

Limiters -
http://www.sm-modellbau.de/shop/
http://www.neumotors.com/store/page19/page19.html

Rest of the rules are -

5S lipo max, 200g-400g
1kg minimum AUW
65g/dm2 loading

I'm going to aim for 750-800 watts unloaded to start with... Hopefully that's enough to get me through the last lap without running out of power :shock: :?

What size prop and how many cells to acheive 800w with the pyro? It seems like such a small amount of pwr ay!!

Just did a quik calc...1400kv x 5s (17.5) running a small ?x6.5" pitch prop equates to 230ish kmph.Not to bad for sports class racing

DUP 6.25x11's in the mail (and 6x10, 7x10's, and Koch 7x14s :ugeek: )


Id imagine a ~ 5.5x9 will be the prop for 1400kV outrunners on 5S to be competitive f5d wise.

Bunch of props in the APC sport and Q40 lines that will work with some trimming, and experimentation.

Maybe we need to send Dean a 6x6 Graupner CAM to turn into a carbon 5.5x9 F5D Folder...

Personally, id rather race the same competition the rest of the world is 8-)

Don't worry, I don't plan to stay at "sport" :ugeek:

I have DUP 6x10, 7x10 and 6.25x11's sitting in front of me now. If my friends stop getting married I will hopefully get them mounted and tested in the next few days.

Thats not even close to enough :mrgreen:

Should be knocking on 200mph/320kph under that power limit

Coolbeans, will be interesting to do back to back tests. Ill post up numbers too. Can you do a kV test?

Hopefully that german beast of a motor doesnt leave my scorpion to far behind in the efficiency stakes! :?

I can do a unloaded KV test if that's good enough...

RPM sensor should be here any day for the unilog.

It might be a bit tricky, but I can do it!!!

Send me the prop and your wish will be granted. First person to send me one will get their carbon version free.

If it's for NZ electric pylon, I'll make them so they are really affordable.

I DO!!!! I promise I won't ask you again!

Sure thing, I'll whip them up for you. I have some new carbon (thanks to Adrian and Southern Spars!) which I want to use for the 7x10, so I'll see how it goes, should allow for a light yet extremely strong layup.

I'm getting to the point where I can start modifying the Ninja, I'm going to be tweaking it for a bit more speed. Possibly a new motor, will have to see how the plane goes, I'll be doing some testing over the next couple of months.
