Default 10A motor, not sure what to do

I have a 10A motor but I am not sure what plane to buy. I just did not like keeping the motor without using it :P Anyone knows a plane that can take this motor?

Seems to me there are a lot of recommendations in that advert. Why not try one of them ? Alternatively what type of plane are you interested in ?

A agree with Slipstick that the advertisement gives you several choices. I think that the GWS warbirds would be a little too much for it, but a very light plane like the Folker Eindecker from HobbyLobby should be a great selection. Basically, any plane under 1lb. that does not require 3D capability should be OK. DMZModels has four ARFs that should be great with this motor.

I personally think that the motor would work great with a GWS E-starter.

On a 3cell 1250lipo and a 9x3.8SF prop you would turn 18oz of thrust on a plane that weighs about 17oz - nice performance, and the plane is very versitile.

Steve,
I am looking for a RC jet or a delta. That is what I am missing my collection.
But if there is any non jet/delta fun plane, please post it. Thanks!!

Personally, I think that motor would work well on one of Chellie's scratchbuilt deltas. If you think you're up to cutting out several sheets of foam, do a Wattflyer search for Chellie Delta Easy Scratchbuild

Just build a flat foamy airplane of your choice. The end weight will be around 10 ounces, and that motor will be perfect for such an airplane.

Just Google your favorite airplane, and download a "three view". Print the "three view" on a printer, and increase the size until the wingspan is about 30 inches. Tape the paper print out to a sheet of 6mm Depron, and cut it out -- it will fly GREAT! (I promise!)

The only tricky part is to figure out the proper CG -- if you need help with this, just PM me.

Quick question, I have a wing dragon 4 that I want to upgrade, do you think this motor can handle it??

Wing Dragon 4 --> 46-1/2" wingspan, 33-3/4" long, 341 sq. in. wing area, 25 oz. flying weight.

That calculates out to 10.56 ounces per square foot of wing loading.

I don't know what prop you plan on using, but if you use the suggested GWS EP 9050, you will get about 100 watts out of that motor -- which would give you 64 watts per pound for the Wing Dragon 4.

These things being calculated properly, I think that motor would have a very difficult time flying your Wing Dragon 4. :o

I saw this corsair from GWS. Does any other company makes this plane with similar size/weight?

Yes -- there is this one, which is more similar in construction to the Alfa/Flying Styro/Scorpio aircraft.
