Power system

Unread post by yorcram » Sun Dec 29, 2019 8:47 pm

I will be needing a new power setup soon . Been a very long time since I needed to get a motor/esc. Not sure on brands or sites to buy from.
Looking for 500watts from a 4cell battery and think I need 10-11in max prop diameter.
Any recommendations?

Hi,

Earlier this year I purchased the following items for my Durafly Tundra which I fly on 4S with a 10x7E prop.

Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 3536-1050kv Brushless Outrunner Motor

Hobbywing Skywalker 2-4S 50A UBEC Brushless ESC

I also use this same ESC in my 450 helicopter on 4S. Very compact and zero issues in either model so far.

Any idea how many watts and the amps you are pulling with the 4S and 10x7 set up Jeff?

Decided on hk sk3 4240-760kw motors and YEP 60Amp ESCs.
Ordered 2x 4s5000 70c batteries for power.

Hi Chris,

My setup pulls about 40 amps (so roughly 650 Watts) at wide open throttle using a 2200 4S 40C LiPo. I rarely ever use full throttle in flight but when I do it will go unlimited vertical.
