Does someone have a good starting param file for the Zephyr 2?
I contacted Tim at ReadymadeRC to ask if he sells the motor separately to the whole motor/esc package, as nobody else does. He emailed back thismorning to inform me he is now, from today going to sell these motors as an individual piece ! Great news, if you don't need the rest of the kit. Here it is : Ritewing motor
Dudz, the G10 may be a little underpowered for the job. I think the closest motor to the Ritewing OEM that HK offers is the NTM Prop Drive Series 35-42A 1250Kv. The ESC and SBEC you listed should work well.
Thanks. I don't like to change things if something is proven to be functioning right, but I would like to make a saving where the motor and esc is concerned.
I am looking at the "Turnigy G10 Brushless Outrunner 1200kv" seen here ; Turnigy G10
And this for the ESC : TURNIGY TRUST 70A SBEC /
Lastley the ; SBEC
Is this the right spec for the job please ?
My setup is: Ritewing OEM motor; 10x6 prop; 80 A Castle Creations ESC; 5V 10A Castle Creations UBEC; 2 x 3300mah 3S Nanotech batteries in parallel; APM2.0 (of course!); 915 Mhz Xbee data radio; standard size sevos.
The motor draws 38A at full throttle (about 450 W). It is not overpowered, but lively enough for my purposes. 4S batteries could be used to increase power and speed if desired.
Weight, ready to fly with cameras, is 2.3 kg (5 lb).
The bay lid does come with the kit, the magnets do not. He is using the Ritewing OEM motor, the new one...you can get it at readymaderc.com ESC is preference but do not go below 65amp. Do NOT use the esc for powering your servos and rx. Use an external BEC.
That's a great setup. Please could you list your motor ,esc,bec,and servos ?
Does the bay lid and magnets come with the wing kit ?
That is awesome. I had considered doing that with mine but held off until I figured out what if any issues "NOT" having it at the cog and the center of the plane would have...so, I am assuming that since your flight was successful, your keeping it there? I think this is a perfect set up for me too because I have my EZ gear on the other wing...this would help balance. Thanks for the pics Deon!
