The Blue 5g servos are some I got from Jeff, the black 9g servos were some I bought several years ago from RCS-Sports.com

I'm fairly sure that the ESC is also one I'd gotten from Jeff too.

That's such a well done guide that I added a link to it in the 2409-12T and 2409-18T motor listings, as we sell these motors with the plastic stick mount.

Also, for anyone interested, we're now selling a nice Aluminum Stick Mount for those two motors.

I'm confused, the 2409-12 has an 8mm bearing tube along with most of the Tower Pro motors. Is this a mount for motors with a 10mm bearing tube or an 8mm?

The 2409-18 and 2409-12 have 10mm bearing tubes. The 2408-21, 2410-12D, 2410-08, 2410-09, and 2410-12Y have 8mm bearing tubes. Hope this helps

Thumbs up GWS A6 W/ 2409-12T 32 amp tp9g's

Got a GWS A6 (at-6 Texan) on the build deck! Just outfitted with TP 2409-12T, POWER UP 32amp and some TP SG90 sub micros! Still setting up (the guy I bought the plane kit from forgot the hardware bag, should have it in a couple days).
From what I see, this thing is gonna be a rocket!

I really appreciate the info and set-up suggestions on the website.
Got the order in just a couple days. Thanks!

Thumbs up to Heads Up!

P.s. I rigged the motor mount like Smokejohnson did, really solid.

Don't run any more than a 9/4.5 on that set-up and 8.5 will haul it like a bat outta ,,,,I use 9 4.5's one the Monkey Chopper, 8.45 three blade works well too! but watch the 8-10 sec WOT times an give her a a few moments to cool down before punch'in it again, I've pushed these set-up as far as they'll go on several planes, Have Fun ! bub steve

Default Heads Up RC Powered

Here are two of my planes I have been flying for nearly three years. The Big Stick had a Kontronic 600-25 geared and the Tower 40 had a Kontronic 480-33 geared. Both had Kontronic speed controls. Lately I found out about Heads Up here on Wattflyer. To date I have had only three orders. I have now powered both planes with 4248-08 motors and Powerup 70 amp speed controls from Heads Up. There is as much difference as in night and day. Unlimited vertical. I am flying with 3700mah batteries and getting 15 min plus. Great service and fast delivery, You just can't beat Heads Up RC for products and service.

Sure, here is the whole listing. I'll have these motors back in stock in 3 or 4 weeks.

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.
MOUNTING OPTIONS: A firewall mount that is secured on the motor with two set screws is included, and the motor can be mounted on the GWS Plastic Outrunner Mount as pictured below if your model has a 10mm stick. You will need to drill a couple of holes to secure the motor to the GWS mount. You will need a 3mm prop adapter or a 3mm prop saver to mount a propeller. The picture below is for reference only. The plastic mount is not included, but is available in our store.


Propeller data for 3 cell Lipo batteries:


The APC 5.5x4.5 prop produces about 16 ounces of thrust at 21 amps. Exceeds recommended maximum amps. Use with caution.
The APC 5.25x4.75 prop produces about 15 ounces of thrust at 20 amps. Exceeds recommended maximum amps. Use with caution.
The APC 4.5x4.1 prop produces about 14 ounces of thrust at 15 amps.
The APC 4.1x4.1 speed 400 prop produces about 11 ounces of thrust at 12.5 amps.
Propeller data for 2 cell Lipo batteries:

TheGWS EP 7035 prop produces about 15 ounces of thrust at 13 amps.
TheGWS EP 6030 prop produces about 13 ounces of thrust at 11 amps.
The APC 6x4 speed 400 prop produces about 13 ounces of thrust at 13 amps.
The APC 6x5.5E prop produces about 10.5 ounces of thrust at 15 amps.
The APC 5.5x4.5 prop produces about 10 ounces of thrust at 12.5 amps.
The APC 5.25x4.75 prop produces about 9 ounces of thrust at 12.5 amps.
TheGWS EP 5030 prop produces about 9.5 ounces of thrust at 7.5 amps.
The above data is a result of my own testing using fully charged Lipo batteries.

2805-28 Specifications:


Weight (motor only) = 0.9 ounces (25 grams)

Diameter = 1.1 inch (28mm)
Total Length = 1.5 inch (38mm)
Shaft Length = 0.4 inch (10mm)
Shaft Diameter = 3mm
Voltage = 7 to 13
KV = 2800
Current = 18 amp maximum for 30 seconds

Default EVA sport setup.

Here is my Setup for a Mountain Models EVA sport. Using a 410-12D Motor with 9x5 GWS prop, and 1300 Power Up Lipo and 9 gram servos from Jeff. Rest of the electronics are a Spektrum AR6100 receiver and a Thunderbird 18 ESC.

Using the firewall mount for the EVA the motor fits great and only modification was shortening the prop shaft to use with the prop adapter to get a good fit with the cowl.

Performance is great plenty of power for sport aerobatics, and decent vertical, even with a AUW around 19 ounces. 8-9 minute flight times with around 30-40% battery left on landing.

Got a 2409-18T and components coming to put in a Lucky A.C.E next, should be a good performer as well.

Why is it when I have a 12 of one prop I never break them, but when I only have one it breaks on the first flight.
