Not enough cowbell for my taste. I'd like at least 1100-1200W on that plane. The thrust is enough to hover, but there's more to 3D than that and that motor wouldn't be powerful enough for the violent...

What batteries do you have? You have any 4s 4000mAh? In that case: Motrolfly 4315 714kv. I can play forwarder if you need. I have it in my 3DHS 58" Edge. Budget? Hmmm... Well, cheap it ain't. But the...

I think that Hacker is too heavy. You want a 280-290g motor with that size airframe. As a comparison, the Torque 4016T is 282g and the Motrolfly is 280g. Even though the 58" Extra is discontinued,...

First of all, the 650kv wind of that motor doesn't seem to be available from HK anymore. I can't find it anywhere on the website. In my opinion, 650kv is too much for 5S. You want at least a 15" prop...

Nigel, I have a 3DHS 58" Edge and I'm running a Motrolfly 4315 in it pulling about 1200-1300W. You don't want less than 1000W in a plane like that if you want to 3D. Maintaining a hover is one thing,...

One word: Motrolfly. They're superior motors, IMHO. Plus, you can get them custom wound to almost any Kv for a very reasonable cost.

I have all the RC stuff I've ever dreamed of (and then some), so my only wish is good flying weather and more time to fly.

If I can't get that, I'll take a DX18. :)

Sunny, 50s and gusting up to 27mph (according to nearby airport). Straight crosswind most of the time. Made for interesting landings. Only broke two props.
