welcome aboard jeff! i love the $2 shipping because i make a few orders a week because i dont realize i need something else until after i placed the order. the cheap shipping keeps my absent-mindedness affordable!

i have one thing that i wish you'd stock and its the perfect piece to compliment the blue wonder 24g motors. this is a great motor mount for light weight foamies.

sorry for linking to a competitor but its the only place i know that sells them

I'll sure look into it. I realize that we need to offer more products for mounting motors, and I plan to offer 10mm sticks, and an all purpose mount with plywood plus nylon spacers in the near future.

Jeff,

Do you have plans to expand your motor line to other brands, like the Turnigy brand, in the near future?

Jeff,

What have people been getting for life expectancy for these batteries? Any 'C' problems? I'm thinking of getting a few for my new AP plane but really need some batteries that will give me close to those 'C' ratings when I get into some tight spots.


Lipo Battery 11.1v 2250mah 20C - 45 amp Lithium Polymer


Power Up 11.1 volt 2250 mah 20C 45 amp Lithium Polymer rechargeable battery.

I personally like this battery a lot, and use it in several models with good results. I sell a lot of these Lipos, with many of them going to repeat customers.
As for life expectancy, that is so highly dependent on how a battery is treated that there is no simple answer to that question. And as for as the 'C' rating I feel it is more honest than most brands, but still not a 'true' rating. If you run ANY Lipo battery at it's maximum C rating for very long, you are likely to damage the cells due to the heat produced. You may be interested in reading my Guidelines for choosing a Lipo Battery to understand my approach to using Lipo batteries.

JeFF::I did'nt notice the Soft time'in set-up for this outie till I ordered it, I have a ESC or two I was gonna use, but never notice a Soft time'in option on them, will I be able to use it? I ordered a Swift II EPP wing the other day an rememberd see'in this outie before and just looked at the prop-V-Amp's specks and ordered it, thanks your bub, steve

2805-28 Outrunner Brushless Electric Motor

2805-28 Outrunner Brushless Electric Motor
The 2805-28 is a 0.9 ounce 2800KV direct drive outrunner motor that works well on small pusher jets and flying wings, and for many applications where a high speed motor spinning a small prop is needed.
The 2805-28 works well with both two and three cell Lipo batteries. Please check out the prop data below for help in choosing the right battery and prop for your model.
I recommend using the Power Up 20A or 32A ESC, depending on what battery and prop you use. The timing of the ESC should be set to 'soft' (also called inrunner timing), and this is easily accomplished with your transmitter. Clear instructions are provided with the ESC.

You're ESCs may run the motor just fine. Be sure to check the motor to see how hot it's getting though.

Jeff - I just wanted to give you a Canadian salute "BEAUTY EH!”
Jeff not only walked me through the components I needed for my Beaver, he also made the purchase happen, plus the shipping was like lightning.
Thanks Jeff

Thanks for the 'salute', and I hope spring comes early for you so you can fly the Beaver without freezing your fingers

As you can see, there is a link to the prop data in the post above.

We should have these motors back in stock early next week. They will be designated as Emax CF2805 from now on.

Also, we just listed the Emax CF2822.

Have a nice day!

Service just doesn't get any better than what Jeff provides. I was trying to get a set up for my new Pulse XT .25e and Jeff was extremely helpful. Where else will you get the owner of a business sending you PMs after 10:00 at night helping you out? I would venture to say NOWHERE! I just placed the order with Jeff for my power system and servos for this little beauty (The plane guys).

Thanks a bunch Jeff. You Rock!

I am going to thank James (SmokeJohnson) and Chellie, because they were the first members that mentioned HeadsUpRC.com in posts that I saw. Great products, fast service, low shipping charges, and great web site for newbies trying to figure out optimal setup for your electronics. It's the best do-it-yourself RC site that I know of. I will be back shopping soon- promise.

I myself...well I use Jeff for all my stuff. Has nothing to do with prices, shipping or service really, in my line of work, if I want to fly by this weekend..I order from Heads Up R/C....enough said.

Jeff makes pilots...I'm one of them
