Need help with first build.

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I'm interested in building a Quadraselle and a Baronette from Dare. (They sell them at Great Hobby

I think I've figured out everything I need except for the speed control.

They say a speed control between 2 and 6 amp.

The motor is a 8.6:1 GWS set (

with a 10 x 4.7 prop. They say to use a 150 mha 7 cell battery (I have a 750mha 7 cell battery, would that work? Or would it make the plane to heavy for that motor?

As for the speed control there is a 2 amp one but I don't think that would be high enought.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated! This is my first build and I don't know much about anything!

P.S. I was also interested in the 1903 Wright Flyer but have no idea about the motors they are talking about any help on those would also be greatly appreciated!
Ho yah by the way..... I'm french!
So if you see any typos.......they are not typos, they are actual mistakes.
Feel free to point them out.

I am not familiar with the planes/kits you mentioned and the Great hobbies site give limited information. However, if this is your first time flying models you would be better off with something more suitable to learn to fly with. These planes are not going to take well to crashing. Having said that, you battery is definately too big for these birds. These 2 planes both weigh approximately 6.9oz, your battery probably weighs half that or more. That means that your battery is 50% or more of the weight of your entire airframe. The thing to remember when looking at small flying models is each thing you add is added weight. The item might not be heavy by itself but if you weigh it and then figure out how much of a percentage of the total weight it is. For example if you are installing something that is 10% of the weight of the airplane then it better be an important item like the motor or the radio and not a scale set of wheels. As for the speed control, go with the smallest and lightest one you can. I can't advise you on the correct amperage for your speed control because I do not have this motor/power setup to test for maximum amperage draw.
