I had the first version of the 90mm rclander alloy fan/motor combo - 1600kv I think.

Installed in a Starmax F-18, it drew 70A on a fresh 6s batt but would only provide 3.5min of flight time on mixed throttle. The motor burned out after a dozen or so flights - as it did for a few people on the F-18 forum. Tim Wan from rclander sent me a new ver2 setup which was great, but I haven't used it yet.

A new ARC motor and Wemotec Midifan should cost less than a new model, and will use your battery power much more efficiently.

Just my 2c.

Cheers,

Dan.
