Must say the motor is extraordinary!
Very long flight times (3S 2200mAh) doing F3A aerobatics, no 3D.
Cool, efficient - no, I am not a rep for PA .... just happens to like the motor!
Before I had a Torque 2812/900 but it didnt had enough power (for me).

I have a Thrust 30 in my Precision Aerobatics Extra 260. I toyed with the idea of putting it in the Acromaster. It spins a much bigger prop than the Multiplex recommended Himax 3516-1130. The Thrust 30 does a great job in the PA 260 and can have very long run times and spinning a 13 inch prop. The Thrust 40 is a more powerful motor and weighs around the same as the Himax. My only concern would be whether the Acromaster airframe can take the power and torque produced by the Thrust 40. If you haven't already, fiberglass the nose to make it stronger or use a plywood motor mount before using the Thrust 40. Even then I would be careful with how often and how hard you push the model to the motor's extremes.
