    Re: NEED MORE POWER

    The 4 cell lipo seems pretty small for a senior to me. But I'm sure others here have more experience than me. I think you are probably on the lower end of the power needed to get through that grass.

    On my senior I have an PM4130/20
    Kv(rpm/v) - 305. *@29.6v = 9028 rpm (150/s). @22.2v=6771 rpm

    Prop: 16x10e
    Battery - recommended is an 8S=29.6v. I use two 5800 mAh 4 cell wired in series. Much cheaper the an 8 cell.

    Mine weighs in at the flight line at about 16.4 lbs.

    No issues so far! But it is new!

    Do I need MORE POWER than a Magnum .91 FSR or a Saito 100??? I've got a .60 and a .65 2 stroke, but I'd like to go with a 4-thumper...
