Mine came in an unmarked box but I believe that it is a "fly-model" or something like that.

Re: Canadair CL-415 build

I got mine from Nitroplanes but they are out of stock now. I think they are available in Canada but can't remember who's selling them. From what I could tell, the KMP version was a CL-215 but looked like it came from the same factory.

Re: Canadair CL-415 build

I have a couple of HP .40 Nitro engines . You can have them both with mufflers, shipped for $100.00. They are in excellent shape, one has new ring and bearings.

Re: Canadair CL-415 build

I'm flying one of these set up with two e-flite power 46 motors and two parallel four cell 5000mah lipo packs turning APC 14x8.5 props . Each motor draws 45amps producing about 650 Watts each at full throttle. The only time I need full power is on take off. While flying I rarely use more than half power. Anymore power than this is really unnecessary.

Question about the Aeolian, are they any good or just a piece of Chinese cr_p ?

I was actually considering something around a 5045 500kv initially but was concerned that it might not fit inside the cowlings. Also not planning to use more than 4s as I already got the batteries and I'm not looking for performance here as long as it fly. Really, it's just for look

Alain
Aeolians are great motors! All of the ones I have used are very reliable and put out more drive power than any of the Turning motors. The 50xx series are way to big for your needs.

My A-26 weighed 16+ lbs and was perfectly if not slightly overpowered using these two Aeolians.

With 4s packs your KV will be lower so your motor power should be approx 4/5 of the max rated power (I think the max is 5 cells) but the motors still try to meet max power and will pull more current to compensate for the lower voltage (Power = Voltage * Current)..

Re: Canadair CL-415 build

A 5" pitch prop at 10000 RPM would give a theoretical speed of 47 MPH and use a lot less power and a big increase in takeoff and climb performance.

Re: Canadair CL-415 build

General Hobbies sell one of these and their boxes and instruction have no brand label on them.

Re: Canadair CL-415 build

Had to take a pause on this project to work on one of my wife's project wich apparently always have priority...

Well Kip, from your suggestions I will assume you haven't read the first few posts but thanks anyway.

As for flying formation with Tommy G, I don't know him but maybe I'll get to know him at one of the funfly this summer.

I have been able to do some work on the prop hub this weekend as I have to make it a little smaller to fit in the spinner. It was fairly easy to do the "machining" as the parts are plastic. I also have to make the openings in the spinner bigger to make room for the hub and blades. I'm not done with that but it's getting close. I did a quick trial with two blades to see how this will look and I like it so far. The nut provided with the spinner is too small for the motor shaft witch is 8mm but I have been able to order the proper size from HK.
