- the most reliable RC Calculator on the Web
Urs Leodolter - World Champion F5B 2000/2002Being part of this successful idea of a reliable online calculator makes me proud. I gave Markus the input a decade ago to start his work with eCalc. Today I'm using it for all rc setups for me and for the customers. The results in real rc planes do match just perfect! The best address on the web (aside Leomotion.com) to get your guessed drive values answered!

Bob Parks - 11/29/16I am really glad that you are doing this [cgCalc]. It has always bothered me about all the "how to find the CG" methods in magazines and online, most of which are OK for some airplane that is a totally standard aft tail airplane with TVC the same as everything else and a small fuselage... but fail horribly as soon as you do something even the least bit different.
You already have something way better than anything else I have seen online.
Rex - 11/23/16That is so cool. What a time to be a modeler! We can get with 5% of what basically unlimited money and the smartest people in the world can do. For a buck. Thanks eCalc!
Douglas - 11/17/16If you want flight time splruge for an account on ecalc.ch which is an awesome site and worth the paid subscription. Incredible resource. Prop pitch, diameter, make and blade number make a significant difference in flight time, and you could get the same performance with very different props but worse flight time with one of them because of poor efficiency, like not enough or too much pitch creating propeller stalling for static thrust. Using ecalc is a good alternative to spending time and money on a zillion props and watt and thrust measuring on that ground, unless that activity floats your boat.
Franz Leinauer - 08/03/16Super Service, für mich das beste Programm für den ernsthaften E-Flieger.
Paul Naton - 05/31/16As a producer of professional instructional videos for R/C glider pilots, I use eCalc extensively to evaluate motor system combinations to precisely match the performance requirements needed for the projects and how-to building videos I make. Many of our customers are coming from pure sailplanes into electrics, and they have difficulty understanding the technology and power systems required to make their e-gliders light yet still have fast climb performance. eCalc has evolved into such a useful learning tool that I now teach tutorials on how to use the program in my Electric Sailplane training video series so pilots can learn on their own how to optimize climb performance and efficiency. I highly recommend my students spend an evening with eCalc experimenting with different propellor and motor combinations so they can begin to understand how important picking the right prop and motor size is in achieving the needed performance without over-stressing the components.

D. Russ - 05/25/16Done the eCalc thing and it's a brilliant program...well worth the tiny price.
Arial Adventure Blog - 20/09/16Very popular calculator tool for estimating electric power systems, exceptionally useful.
Andrew Ross - 05/09/16Thanks for a very useful tool. As an electronic engineer I appreciate the effort it must have taken to create such a useful tool and to maintain such a comprehensive database of component data.
Paul Holterhaus - 05/06/16Just to let you know, your eCalc chart is one of the all time most usefull tools I have ever found. Totally wonderful for comparing Motors/Props. I use it very often and can not even imagine not having it.
Bob Hunt - 12/24/15All my planes are electric, now, and I have to give a lot of credit to Markus Meuller's «eCalc» for helping me select the right motor/prop/battery/esc combinations.
Jonathan Smith - 12/15/15eCalc is a great tool for sizing up props and motor combinations.
Jeffrey T. Sandford - 10/27/15This is the best tool for running setup F5J, Motor and Propeller calculations out there. Markus has done a wonderful job making the interface easy to use too...
John M. Glover - 8/31/15Two things you probably would like to know- how much weight can it carry and how long can it fly? To figure this out there is an easy way and a hard way. To calculate the motor and prop matching and overall weight of the quadcopter; the easy way is to use the eCalc.ch calculators to virtually build your whole system.

Joe Kwok - 8/15/15As a professional modeler, I have to say that eCalc is the only simplistic and realistic helper out there on the internet!

Phillip Schmidt - 6/12/15eCalc.ch is your friend. Purchase a membership. Learn it, use it, love it. ... Read the instructions, you will learn a lot just from that.
Andriy Ivchenko - 5/28/15THE place to avoid mistakes, learn and eventually save money! Brilliant web-app and brilliant customer support!
Will Render - 3/10/15...loving the site!! I made so many mistakes with props. Your program really cleared this up...
Steve Croft - 12/13/14It has saved me having to go the Hard way with Real motors, Props and batteries etc. eCalc takes away the expensive guess work..
Adam Butler - 12/13/14Thank you for helping me setup my 2 big electric projects, A 100" Mosquito Bomber with 2 x AXI Brushless swinging 19x10 3 blade props on 10 lithium cells each and an 84" Spitfire again with an AXI brushless turning a 20 x 10 4 blade prop. Without ecalc it would have been buy lots of props and try them all, with the ecalc estimates I am very happy with my first prop purchases for both models.
Walter Söhner - 9/12/14My top Flite giant P-47, also calculated by eCalc. The first flight was not easy because of a tail heavy model an one battery pack get weak during flight. After changing the 12S 5000 to 12S 8000 the airplane flies perfect endless power..... I also change the speakers of the sound system again, it`s not nice if the Escape sound ist more loud as the engine sound.
Steve Croft - 11/13/14Having only just got eCalc for quads, I was pleased that I could find combinations that would give the most efficient flight characteristics and flight times. Absolutely an essential program for multi-rotor fpv pilots.
