[Score: 8/10] 28"/1000g Hacker Single Propellor (3 Blade 35mm) Direct Drive to a surpass c2216 (3 Blade) Powered by LiPoly (7.4v) Batteries - Comments: Fast Electric just for fun

Hacker by BigAlio Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi not so much a build blog more of an assembly blog. A Trinity Hacker 1/18 scale 700 mm long, did away with supplied speed 600 motor, fitted a small brushless one, a surpass c2216 800kv motor. Try 7.4v first if she needs more 11.1v should make her fly. much lighter reduced weight from 1200g to 1000g should help performance.
