Power System / Propeller / Servos

Designed for all-up weight (AUW) of ~3 KG.

Motor

Propeller

  • Currently testing: APC 12 x 6 (fixed)
  • Recommended: APC 13 x 6.5 for efficient non-gliding flights
  • Alternative: Graupner 13×8 CAM folding prop. Note: You must buy or make a prop stopper to prevent the prop folding back more than 90 degrees which could rip the motor off if started in this position. Another trick is to use zip ties as explained here.

ESC

A 75A - 100A ESC with BEC is required, such as Castle Creations Phoenix Ice 75A or 100A.

Battery

Lipo, 4S1P, 8300 mAh

Servos

Electronics

Lots of room for all the electronic components.
