If you are talking about the pylon racer check out some threads about it on RCGroups. There were many different setups shown there.

Re: SOKOL??? NEED HELP!!!!!!!!

There is lots of info about this plane on RCGroups. I flew for the first time this weekend a speed 400 racer that an aero engineer friend of mine designed. The old guys at the club were swearing i was doing 200 mph. I think 140ish is more realistic. I am sure our set-up would work for a sokol. We have a Mega16/15/3, 35 amp CC Pheonix, TP 2100 pack. I am already trying to figure how to make it go faster. I don't think we can get a 4 cell pack in it. You might consider the Mega 16/15/2. It has a higher KV and is actually meant for ducted fans.

I think speed could become addicting.

The Neu motors make the plane go faster I found out. 160mph in a straight line radarred.
