And if you don't know the aerodynamic characteristics of your plane, Moto Calc's lift and drag coefficient estimator will make short work of determining them.

You can specify a range for the number of cells, gear ratio, propeller diameter, and propeller pitch, and Moto Calc will produce a table of predictions for each combination.

After a few iterations, you should have narrowed down your choices to a few power systems suitable for your model and your requirements.

At this point, it's time to install some equipment, and go flying.

For example, if the Moto Wizard is suggesting a 4:1 gearbox and 12x8 propeller, but you know you can only obtain a 3.7:1 gearbox, change the gear ratio (and perhaps decrease the propeller size slightly).

You may also want to specify ranges for some parameters (for example, if the Moto Wizard suggested 14 cells, you might want to try 12 to 16 cells). from the Project menu, type in a name for your project, and click OK. button to generate an in-flight analysis (if you specified any ranges in step 2 above, you will get a static analysis, from which you can pick one result and click the In-flight... A summary of the project (motor, battery, speed control, airframe, etc.) appears at the top of the analysis.

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.

These five steps are described in more detail below.
