List Your Set Up...
« on: March 29, 2009, 09:07:31 PM »
We lost this important thread in "The Crash".  So lets start over and list your set ups.  Like airplane, wing area, flying weight, motor, battery, timer, prop, line length (eye to eye), flight time, rpm, lap speed, and mah used.  In the "Subject" line list the airplane name, then list your set up in the main area.

Brodak Kit, 34" span, 236 squares
Profile fuselage 27" OAL
16 oz

NOTE: THis is the prototype for a new "10" sized system from Brodak.
> Arrowind 2210-25 kv=1560
> APC-E 7x5 Pusher prop
> Arrowind 3Sx1600 (20C) battery (123g/4.4 oz.)
> Arrowind 18A ESC (non governing
> Will Hubin FM-0c timer with "throttle up" capability
> .008 x 50' (eyelet to eyelet) lines

Currently flying approx 4.2 sec lap time (want to slow it to 4.4) and using 970 - 1000 mah in roughly 5:10,  this bird flies extremely well.

I have 2 Ringmaster S-1s
One is an RSM Old Time Legal S-1 kit build. 32 oz
One is scratch built (using RSM S-1 Old Time Legal plans as a guide). 28.5 oz

42" span
383 Sq area

Scratch built has a Turnigy 3245 1000KV (This maybe a little overkill!)
Castle Creations Phoenix 45 ESC (Using Control Line set RPM Governor mode.)
Rhino 4S 1750 20C or Zippy Flightmax 4S 2200 20C Battery
Will Hubin timer FM-2X (custom for CC ESC using Control Line Governor mode set RPM)
(Will now has this timer called FM-2SR at $15)
APC 12-6 electric pusher cut down to 11"
60' lines (eye to eye).

RSM Old Time Legal kit built is the same as above except:
Scorpion 3014-22 motor 892 KV
(Scorpion has replaced this motor with the "new" Scorpion SII-3014-830KV)

Strictly speaking, this plane no longer exists  :'(, but during its short life it was a pretty good flyer.

I don't exactly recollect how or why I bought the ARF, but it was pretty cheap and I think Renkar's "It's only a Hobby" 1/2A stunt contest was fast approaching. I was getting a little tired of flying an old hand-me-down TF FLite Streak (irony is I flew that plane in this fall's contest). I also believe that I originally assembled it for my Killer Bee 049, planning to use a Kavin extended Black Widow Tank. As it turns out that didn't work well.

So moving right along, I decided to convert it to electric. At the time I was thinking about the possibilities of making a beginner's electric 1/2A, and thought I would target it with a 2sLipo pack. One motivation was that a beginner might want to use a 6 cell NiMH pack, and that is about the same volts. I also had the motor winding bug back then, and purchased several kits from Gobrushless.com. In the end I went with a GBx1.1 which I wound with 11 turns of 22 gauge wire (this is a 9 tooth stator with 12 magnets). My kV was ~2300 rpm/V. This was a bit on the low side, and since I was limited to a 6" diameter prop (Renkar rules), it was important to get as high a pitch as possible.

Here was the final setup.

Brodak Baby Clown ARF.

GBx1.1 wound 11 turns of 22 gauge wire--kV~2300rpm/V  weight = 1.3oz
Thunderpower Lite 2s730mAHr Lipo (weight=1.14oz with connector)
JMP-2 timer
CastleCreation Thunderbird 9A ESC (no governor mode)
APC E 6x5.5 prop (just one!)

All up flying weight is 6.9oz (plane alone=3.9oz)

I flew on 35 foot lines. Beginner pattern (used in contest) used no more than 1/2 the pack capacity.

Here is a photo with an early attempt at using a multiblade prop!

I would like to post my set up.  I need to know if the weight of the airplane includes the battary.  My E-Vector weighs 46 oz. with the battary installed.  36 oz with it sitting on the bench. 

Thanks,

Legacy  Built from Brodak Kit
Weight fully loaded 66oz
Motor  - Turnigy 35-48-900
ESC – Castle Creations Phoenix 45
Timer – Ztron V4
Battery – Zippy Flightmax 4000mah
Prop – APC 13 x 4.5 Pusher
63ft lines
Lap times are a little quick  at 4.9 sec  -this is running at 10,200 rpm – will be taking this down to 9800 or so to slow it down a little.
Flight Time set to 5m 30sec – gets me through the pattern and 6-7 laps after – putting various amounts back in to pack – from 2675 to 3525!!!!!!   The larger limit was at 6minute flights – so hoping I can get it stabilised a lot lower…… only had 12 flights so far
