What motor would work for the 2-3 lipo system? Also, how much would it be? The system would be going into the Dumas staggerwing plane. I beleive it is a 16" wingspan.

Thanks

Any of the GWS 130-sized stuff would work. EDP-50, IPS series, etc. I'm using a EDF-50 ducted fan in a converted free-flight plane, and the Micro Joule system works fine with it.

As a side note, the plane first had the motor from a Roadkill Jenny- a geared N-20 motor. The Micro Joule ESC worked fine with it, too, but only for a few minutes at a time. Must have been a bad motor, because now the ducted fan draws a bit more current, but the ESC has held up just fine so far- about 20 15-minute flights.
