The Moto Wizard is described in great detail in its own section of this manual, so we won't repeat it all here. The Moto Wizard consists of a number of pages on which you answer some basic questions about your model, it's intended performance, information about where you fly, and any preferences you may have.

If you are a bit more experienced, and know some of the components you want to use to power your model (for example, a particular motor or battery), you can tell the Moto Wizard this and it will try to choose a suitable power system using those components.

Printing This Manual If you prefer a printed version of this manual, we suggested printing the Adobe PDF version, which can be found on the Moto Calc CD (as of version 8.03) in the file "Moto Calc.pdf".

To reduce the amount of information you have to deal with, Moto Calc comes with a database of motors, cell types, gearboxes and propellers, speed controls, and filters.

For example, the database contains over 3100 motors (including the Actro, Astro, Aveox, AXI, Graupner, Hacker, Jeti, Kontronik, Kyosho, Max Cim, Plettenberg, Scorpion, and Turnigy lines), and 250 different cell types.

A copy can also be found on the Moto Calc web site at If you don't wish to print it on your own printer, it can be printed at most copy shops.

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.

If you are a newcomer to electric flight, Moto Calc's Moto Wizard will ask you a few simple questions about your model and your preferences (such as brand of motor), and will then make suggestions as to the ideal power system.

You can then use the rest of Moto Calc to investigate one or more of the suggestions in detail, and then use Moto Calc's Mot Opinion feature to get a plain-English analysis telling you how the power system, and your plane, will perform.

After a couple of days, the sender is likely to get an email back to say that their email wasn’t delivered.
