June 28, 2010 >> Paul Eagon's 2nd Aero Commander!
Paul has just completed
a second Aero Commander, but this time is electric powered!
As before, Paul has a link to see video of his electric Aero Commander in flight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLIpegQ1EIs
Specifications from Paul Eagon: "The motors
are Hacker A60-16L at about $225 each I used Mad Dog R/C aluminum mounts which
have the same bolt pattern as a DA-50 The speed controllers are Castle HV 80 amp
at about $175 each I am running 2 - 6cell 5000mah in each nacelle and they fit
nicely. 4 at 60 each at Hobby King
Gives me at least 10 minutes of flight time.
The motors put out 3,600 watts each with Meizlik 22x12 carbon fiber props. At 49lbs wet, that gives me 147 watts per pound which is equivalent or a little more than 50cc motors."
