^What prop/ESC?

I am just beginning to think that outrunners are the only route. A lil Screamers Super Park Jet because they're $40 from Hobby Lobby right now, and I know they're good outrunners.

Little screamers are not gonna do the job for you on your wild wing, as i said before, if your looking for speeds up to 100+ and over, your best bet is the Turnigy 2835-2350 on a 5x5 apc prop, youll hit over 600watts and travel over 100+mph, for under $20 check out my video with the same settup

and here is how i mounted the motor

^On a 3S 2100 pack? I can do mods for that, but the motor mount I'm not sure of. I'm horrible with metal.

nope thats a 4S 1750mAh lipo
as for the metal, i bought a piece of aluminum sheet from home depot for $10 and just cut my own size as you see in teh video, i use a ruler and exato knife to cut the sheet, aluminum is soft so its easy to cut, then drill the holes and your done, it also acts as a heat sink,

^Soo basically it's a $80 upgrade to go 100mph... Need a motor, and a lipo, not to mention another ESC. All I have right now is a 35amp ESC that can handle up to 6S lipo, and a 2100 3 cell pack. Might just go with a lil screamers super park jet. I can get my WW down to 12oz. with a lighter 1000 pack.

speed costs money but considering people pay $100 for a Mega motor alone, this setup is $80 for all your electronics, and it will push you 105+

im working on my new funjet, should hit 150mph

Neu motors rock and very expensive, i just got me a medusa 028-040-2200V2 that arrived today, will be using it with a 5S, should push 150mph but as for the turnigy, i tried 6x5.5 and its super fast but burns the motor hot hot, you can go 20 so flights with a 6x5 before the windings turn from orange to yellow and the motor looses power, so best bet is 5x5, thats what i use and its not to bad, i would go with a 60 or 50amp ESC, i use a 40 and it gets a bit hot but but great motor over all for its price, gives me the same speeds as a Mega 16 15 3 on a 5x5

hi CHELLIE
what I was wondering is that can I use the speed 400 motor and keep the throttle down as not to burn it out .Im in transition of changing to lipos from NiMh and I have a lot of the speed 400 motors so if I even get 20 flights on one its no problem, eventually Ill have all brush less motors what do you think?

Hi Rhondas the motor has a built in stick mount to it, that makes it easy to to mount to any plane with just a 3/8" X 3/8" basswood stick mount, this motor is a 1800kv motor, its a high KV motor, and on 3 cells with a 6 pitch prop has a prop pitch speed of 113.52 MPH

http://www.missionwings.com/airspeed.asp

11.1 Volts X 1800KV / RPM = 19980 RPM + 6 pitch prop = 113.52 MPH

If you want to use your brush can motors, then use a 2 cell lipo, you will be safe doing that, but you wont have very much power or speed, sell your brush motors and ESC and go with brushless, you will thank me later Take care, Chellie

here you go, its a 3 MM shaft, its best to use a prop saver if using the GWS props, or a 3 MM collet if using the APC props, if using the prop saver, push the prop saver all the way back, and cut the shaft so that only 1/8" is sticking out of the prop saver, file 2 flat areas where the screws touch the motor shaft, that will keep the prop saver from wanting to spin on the prop saver, and use lock tight on the 2 screws, when using a collet prop adapter, only leave enough motor shaft for the collet prop adapter to slide on too, so its as close to the motor as possible, by having the motor shaft shorter, it will not tend to bend on you, from a hard landing, hope that helps, Chellie.

for apc type props

Yes I found that out, maybe you could write to the seller of that eBay Item and see if he has any contacts as to where he bought them to sell?
