What would you guys recommend for a high-endurance electric? Airframe, esc, motor, prop, battery?
I currently have an e-flite apprentice, which gets something like 20 minutes on a battery. I'm looking to move to a different airframe and I'm hoping to get at least an hour on a battery.
- Airframe-wise, I want something that's available in an easy-to-build format. What properties make airframes more efficient? I know gliders use high aspect wings... Are flying wings more efficient? What about canards?
- I understand most ESCs run at reduced efficiency below 100% throttle. Are there any that don't?
