I’ve posted numbers on HBA time and time again about car motors and nobody seems to believe them. Or most seem to think that it makes good economic sense to increase the cost of a given amount of power by 1000% to save 20% in installed weight. Seems you can show math and motors on scales or component weight breakdowns until the cows come home without effect. That’s why I thought the picture might have more (some) impact.What will the actual firewall forward weight be, ready to fly?
Anyway, the motor in my hands weighs 140 pounds. If someone were interested I’m sure they could come up with a reasonable FWF weight estimate in whatever configuration.
