Selecting Electric Power Setups

Tips Posted on Sun, May 17, 2015 10:17:48

One of our members (John H.) has provided a detailed description of the approach he takes to selecting a power setup for an electric power (EP) model that will hopefully help others who may be thinking about taking their first steps with EP.

It concisely covers the selection of electric motors (size and kV numbers), batteries (voltage/cell count, capacity and ā€˜Cā€™ ratings), speed controllers and prop size.
