Looking to start trying  E36 which motor timer esc recommendations would you guys make? Probably going with Mutt 36 for plane.

My new plane is using this set up:

Motor: Cobra C-2203/28 2,800Kv E36-F1S   This is the current leader of the pack and is back in stock.


Cobra has a cool ESC as well: Cobra 11A ESC with 2A Linear BEC
Timer:  Blackmagic E36/F1S
Batteries: Max Amps  LiPo 400 2S 7.4v Battery Pack (true 100C) with XT30 connectors
Propeller: Buddenbohm 7x6 folder

Should go nicely Smiley

Oops, I misread the OP. For a first E36 I would go with a Texas Timer or Starlink set up. They have package deals with all you need.

They fly better when you smile!

The Cobra 2203/28 would/could be the perfect motor for E-36


the designer wouldn't have dreamed up a new design with a 4 point fixture and virtually no decent/precise prop shaft. If he would have left the normal drone fixing with 3 latches and a solid incorporated 5mm shaft he had less work and produced a better motor  Roll Eyes

The 4 point fix is simply stupid for a FF model where you have to fine tune the thrust line. And if you have to turn a 6x6 prop at 15.000 revs you need a solid and precise shaft.

The drone motors are perfect designwise, less for there electric data's.


PS: possibly install a RDT, saves a lot of trouble and models  Grin

Out of curiosity, how much current/power does the Cobra draw with 7*6 prop? Is 11 amp ESC sufficient? I have been using DYS 2205 motor on my models, drawing up to 15 amps and 120watts. The Cobra has 40% smaller magnets and coils so I suspect the power is also less. Maybe Cobra is powerful "enough" motor for E-36?  Wink Also, the lighter weight should be a benefit, allowing a longer nose and/or more rearward CoG.

I have been using Afro 20A Race spec mini ESC and have been satisfied with that. It has quite a small footprint so it fits the model easily.
