Interesting tests Mike, thanks for posting the link.

I have a question though. Is it better to have a motor producing 20gm of
thrust from a dd 3" prop at 8300rpm or is it better to have a motor producing
20gm of thrust from a geared 5" prop at 3000rpm?

I realize the size of the prop may depend on the model and the frontal
area of the fuse, but if you can eliminate the gear drive and get the same
thrust, why wouldn't you want to do that if the amps are within 100ma
of each other?

Btw, with all the various N20 motors available from Goldmine, All-Electronics,
Todds, Selman, American Science, GWS, etc, does anyone know for certain
which are LV and which are HV?
