Giant Scale Electric Motors?
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am building a 1/3 WWI biplane, and am considering going electric. I was considering either a G62 with reduction drive, or a DA85 so I can turn a scale 31" prop. Problem is that I also want to fit a Le Rhone dummy engine inside the 6" deep cowl. I am realizing it can be done, but not without a lot of modifications that will affect the scale appearance inside the cockpit. An electric will fit no problem and as far as sound goes; it is mostly the sound of the big prop going through the air that is heard over the 'whine' of the motor.
I have no real knowledge of electric motors, so I am looking for some info on what size I will need to turn a 31" prop at about 4000 rpm.
Any help would be appreciated.
