I have been flying my AeroWorks 30cc Extra 260, 76″ wingspan, for over a year now. I have more then 200 flights on it and absolutely love it. Its a wonderful aircraft and can do any aerobatic maneuver you ask of it. The only issue I have had with the airplane is the DLE 35cc RA gas engine. I have done just about everything I know of to resolve the “load up” issues, I have finally given up on it.
Electric power is so advanced now that I thought this would be a good airplane to convert. I have been flying smaller electric airplanes for ever but this is the first of this size.
After many conversations and questions on RC Groups, asking friends and other experts, I finally settled on the following configuration:
|Electric Motor||MOTROLFLY DM-4330-298
298Kv, 2700 watts
|ESC||ZTW Gecko OPTO 120amp HV ESC|
|Arming Switch||MPI Spark-eliminating, High Voltage Arming Switch|
|Motor/ESC Connectors||5.5mm Bullet|
|Batteries||8S 6600mAh, (2) 4S batteries in series|
Next, I need to get it mounted in to the airplane. I am currently waiting for some additional parts. As soon as its all mounted, I will take some pictures!
