I am new to e-planes (but not to rc flying). I am interested in the Thunder Tiger-Ripper brushless motors (see them at http://users.zoominternet.net/~anrcguy/ttiger.htm ) and would like to know if anyone has any experience with them?

Thanks,
Sky Hawk

No experience with them Sky Hawk. They look like one of many of the new brushless motors from China......

Near the same price point I have been very happy with the new eFlite outrunner motors. Also been very happy with my $30 Skatty motor from Hobby Lobby.....

Of corse the AXI's have been great, but they are more $$$$.

http://www.hobby-lobby.com/brushless-skatty.htm They still have the Esskay on sale for $30. A great deal, but you do need a prop adapter.

I have a buddy that just bought 4 of these, and he used them on the B17 EAM is talking about here! It looks great!

Care to elaborate? What is your setup and why are they garbage?

sky hawk - I have had several experiences with TTR outside of the electric airplane world and they have all been positive. I see no reason why these brushless motors would be any less quality.

I would note, however, that there are many other outrunners available in that price range that have a little more faith and user reviews behind them that might be a smarter decision unless you just want something different.

I would tell you to purchase a motor which produces more power than you think you will need for your plane. SIZE DOES MATTER, and so does weight in electrics. The Skatty motor mentioned above turns smaller props and probably is a good motor for small parkfliers under 10 ounces. For something larger and heavier a motor throwing a 1047 prop and capable of putting out 24 plus ounces is much better. My friend at www.2dogrc.com (http://www.2dogrc.com) has the XMOTOR listed which produces the above specs, and priced well under the Himax.

I love the smell of lipos in the mornings!

I just got one to test against the Littlescreamer. The LS is exactly 1/2 the weight (.8oz's) with same watt and amp specs compared to their 1.6oz's. It looks well constructed and durable though.

bvincent............. I consider both motors as offering good value to the user.

I couldn't help but notice the picture of the Hydro-plane. Question, is that one of Mike Connally's kits? Mike is a great friend of mine. He wins first prize for dreaming up and showing it to the rest of us. For being a nice guy of coarse he got shafted in the end. Sorry Mike................................

No, unfortunately his and Ernest's are not available yet. If he is a good friend of yours you already know that though. It is a MH1 from Red's hanger One Hobbies, Red is a friend of mine.
