Electric Conversion Calcualtions - Help!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am in the throes of attempting an electric conversion of my old Extreme flight Yak 54 - 74". Gas powered weight was around 12 lb.

I have a Turnigy 6364-B 230Kv Outrunner and I plan to run it on 6S or 8S.

I though to start with either 20X12 or 22X12 props.

Am I barking up the right tree with this setup?

Re: Electric Conversion Calcualtions - Help!

Should work fine. I'm running the same motor ( an earlier version) on a Yellow Aircraft Cap 10B. About the same wingspan and 16 lbs, on 10 cells 5000ma and a 22-8 prop. So being lighter, yours should fly fine on 8 cells. Hope this helps.
