Spitfire motor + esc

#1
Hi!

In the next month I'm going to build a Spitfire and I read at the product page that a Park 400 Type, 810kV minimumis recommended.

I came from quadcopters and got some motors gattering dust and I wonder if any of those will be ok to use with the spitfire.

I have a tmotor f60 pro ii, an aokfly 2306 and a racestar 2205, first two are 2400kv, and the other is 2300.

Also, don't know which esc will be ok to use. I got some cheap chinisse 28A esc, and I don't know if that will be enough or it will be deliverd in sacrifice to fire gods.

I don't need any esc + bec combo because I 'm going to use a fligth controller (with inav to fly it in passtrougth mode but I want all the fancy gps features as well).

Thank you so much.

Wait, what size Spitfire are you doing? If your shrinking it down to mini size, roughly 800mm wing span, then yes, those motors will be fine. But if your not, if your building the Spitfire at normal size, then you may have issues.

Power shouldn't be an issue. They should produce enough power. But those quad motors sling 5-6" props. That's a pretty small prop for that plane. I say this because a lot of your thrust will be blocked by the firewall and fuselage. You really need a motor that will swing 7-10" props.

I'd say you could try what you have, but you may have thrust issues.
