I am going into a hobby that my parents always thought was too expensive, but that I always wanted to try. I am buying this as a fun project for my cousin and I to make some planes.
I found MikeysRC on youtube and decided to build some of his planes. One of the things I don't find is brand/model recommends for motors/ESC's etc.
the planes I want to build recommend a 1100-1400kv motor and 30A ESC/with BEC.
3-4 9g servos
(planes= mikeysRC sport trainer and FPV V3)
But what brand/model to buy?
Turnigy sounds like its a good deal, but probably poorly made.
I was looking at this motor, but it seems kind of expensive. definitely looks like a well made kit.

For a complete Newbie, whats the best deal out there (usually available or one you know at the moment)(price and quality. something I can buy a couple of for a couple planes and not break my bank. something that will last )
you could also just recommend brands.
maybe you could recommend a motor/10in prop combo? Servo recommends on good hearty servos?
I second this!! I have been nothing but happy with Heads Up RC, prices are good and the shipping is great. Two bucks on smallish packages. and that's usually that's the size of most orders ( motors, ESCs, servos, batteries, ect.). even if the prices are 50 cents or a buck higher. you save that back on shipping. Orders ship very quickly. I cam put an order in on a Monday morning and the package arrives in the mail by Wednesday!!
hear is a nice 2830 - 1300kv / rpm motor from heads up rc that will work well for you. the maximum size prop for this motor is a 9x5, if you want to use a larger prop, then you have to use a lower KV motor. the esc and battery info is on the motor page, hope that helps, Chellie
What is the make on that seaplane? It looks amazing.
I just wanted to point out, the headsup brand esc's are not a switch mode bec. they won't handle a ton of current. i have the same 30amp esc and I've put over 40 amps through it without problems, but next time i would personally take the next step up to a switchmode bec.
again, i have the same esc and its worked well with 2-4 9gram servos.
slow stock prop reversal. it flies! easily! 543 watt dual motor bipe slow stick. push-me-pull-you. 242 watt 3 channel slow stick. 365 watt mini ultra stick. 415 watt mini contender. 810 watt ultra stick .25e. 220 watt alpha 450 sport (retired).
Wow ! Magaudio that looks like one of my orders when i can sneek it past my gf ! lmao BTW i have tons of free plans both balsa and foam so if your ever looking for a build just ask. I built mikeys fpv / trainer for my son but instead of a camera up front a GI joe pilot and some maching guns were in order .lol joe
