A 700kv motor this size would be perfect. I've got the 600kv version in my CMP P51, but getting a 700kv would be even better. Are you sure you found a 700kv 50-55 somewhere, or was that a typo?

I'm actually considering the 50-45 890 KV motor just to save additional weight and fly with a 4S 5000mah. I have one of the old purple HXT's sitting in a drawer, from a plane that my XPS receiver toasted a few years back when it shut down in flight.

Probably should do a power test with it first, see if it can run a full sustained flight with the intended prop.

Anybody know what spinner size this Spitfire needs?
