Thanks for the reply,
Yeah my main reason for locking in the hover at this point is to make sure I have enough grunt to arrest a decent when I transition back to QPlane…with the 4112 KV 485 and the wooden 13x8 prop I originally received this is simply not possible in my location (sea level Cape Town SA). it doesn’t have enough power for sure. it doesn’t even have enough power hover at head height. the wooden props I have (not Gemfan) (I forget the name and am currently away from home) seem too heavy for the the motors and they can’t get the rpm up as quickly as required. this is also my assumption as to why the motors are getting so hot?
I am happy to try 13x8 carbon props on my AC and believe this may help a little however the height of the 4112 motors seem a problem for clearance on the wing. I am assuming the 3520 KV520 is the longer motor therefore giving better clearance…
off hand I cannot exactly remember hence me leaving it out but I think you are correct the 14’ is probably something like a 14x5 or maybe even slightly less. 14x4,8
I understand the VTOL concept is a game of give and take but for sure without a doubt in my mind I will crash this unit when I transition back to QPlane with the 4112 kv 485 it doesn’t have enough power even at full throttle to arrest a fast decent. if I transition above like 300ft I may possibly be lucky if all goes well but I have spent too much time and money (mainly time) on this to loose it on its first transition, right now I am not confident…
I see for all above combinations they use a wooden prop however a buddy of mine purchased his directly from Foxtech PNP and it arrived with carbon props for front and back motors??
The main role I need the unit to work in is plane however due to landing limitations on site the VTOL is the only option to complete the works that this is required for
