electric motor set up for Chris Williams Flamingo

Post by steve white1 »

Hi I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for fitting an electric motor set up to a Chris Williams 5mt Flamingo.
We don't have any regular tugs available at our field so I would like to be able to self launch.
I already have a 6s set up on another model so would like to use a 6s set up on my Flamingo to utilise my batteries.
I anticipate the model to weigh around 10kgs and will launch from a dolly.
Cheers.

Steve,
This is the motor that we are using, running on 6S. I fit a longer shaft. If you need more help PM me.

Chris has used the 500Kv, but the 400Kv is the best one.

BC, whatever you do, don't tell John the latest use to which we have put this motor...this info is on a need-to-know basis, and he doesn't need to know :D 8-)

Too late. He already knows. He will get better in time. I told him to rest in a dark room.
