|Schwing electric is sleek but not made for just E soaring!|
Milling on the Schwing electric is about to start but I just couldn’t help sharing the development that’s gone into this project so far.
The electric fuse will be fully interchangeable with the glider version which meant quite a design challenge to keep within the wing root spacing and still have a decent power set up.
In the end we managed up to 6s capability using 28mm diameter motors. So this will cover 500w with a 28mm outrunner on 3s or up to around 2.5kw on 6s!
|Design specification was for up to 6s! Here we configure 3 x 3s packs to check the spacings.|
Following on from power train tests we have been doing for F3B electric we’ve been looking into the motors too using a geared 28mm diameter in runner to give high efficiency up to around 1.3kw and lower. They are 64mm long and a bit bigger than most geared motors you can find. These will run with more power and cooler. It’s just simple physics, the bigger the motor the bigger the magnets and the bigger the stators and more efficiently it will run at the same power level. One of these with the right KV, gearbox and prop will give bursts well over 2kw on 6s, which should be quite an outrageous hotliner with the sleek, clean Schwing airframe!
