Updating your computer
The pieces of information you need to supply are: If you already have a good idea of the power system components you want to use in your model, you may want to skip using the Moto Wizard and go straight to the Moto Calc Workbench. If you are unhappy with them (for example, suggestions involving a very large number of cells, or only brushless motors when you would prefer brushed), return to the Moto Wizard's option pages and narrow your preferences.At this point, you can also print the Moto Wizard's suggestions by clicking the Print...They may ask for proof that you have the right to print it, in which case you can refer them to this sentence in the PDF file: You are hereby granted permission to print a single copy of the PDF version of this document for personal use. This brief tutorial assumes that you have a model that you are intending to power with an electric motor (or more than one), whether that be a designed-for-electric model, or a conversion of a glow model.
Below this you will see a table of predictions at different airspeeds, estimating things like current consumption, input and output power, and so on.
This will fill in the Moto Calc Workbench window with settings corresponding to the selected suggestion.
At this point, you can modify any of the parameters that you wish.
Using color coding, the table will also indicate the model's predicted stalling speed, optimal flying speed, and hands-off flying speed (these speeds are generally at less than full throttle). button at the bottom of the in-flight analysis to display the Mot Opinion page, which will give you a plane-English description of how your plane will fly, and any potential problems with the selected power system.
Based on the information in the in-flight analysis and Mot Opinion report, you may wish to revise or refine your power system.
