Weight of 40 sized 55AX profiles?

PostPosted: Fri Oct 12, 2018 8:12 pm

I may build one of my Lamyak 40 this winter and put an electric motor on it.
I have been looking at some 42in and larger span EPP foamies and I might use scaled down lamyak plans to build an EPP Lamyak.
I was curious on the weight of a finished Lamyak 40 covered with high quality film might be appropriately?
I’ll more than likely build electric versions.
I got two Lamyak 40 kits still NIB and got the itch to build.

4.2 or so? Mine had a 4250-800 motor.
What’s “high quality covering”? Moneykote?
Use Value Hobby covering that’s a lot lighter, and cheaper.

Ultracote Parklite I have from several years ago.
I’ll try Value Hobby covering too.

That's a great setup. Castle now has a 60A Talon to throw in the mix. I've got one on the way.

I had one of these new 60A talons on my boxer and it kept screeching and cutting out on 6S with my Hacker outrunner. called castle and changed all the timing, never could get it to work right on that setup.

Screeching and cutting out is usually a sign of over-amps and or a loose solder joint somewhere.

In this case it was neither of those things.

:!: The problem is the Hacker and not the Castle.. I had a Hacker motor that had that problem and Gus and some other Bro's helped me tweak my programming and it went away for me, then I sold it to a Bro and he had the screeching problem and I still feel like crap about it because I thought it was ok. Then I had another Hacker that I thought was fine and sold it on ebay and the seller said the bearings were crap, so I ended up giving him a partial refund. Then I had another Hacker motor and it ran ridiculously hot... So long story short, I will never touch another Hacker motor..

I now own a BUNCH of Motrolflys and have NEVER had one screech / timing loss. Motrolflys aren't cheap, but hassle free confidence is worth every penny!

After the problem with the hacker and castle I threw a Chinese value hobby esc on the hacker now it works great. :rockoncool:
