2402 is around .5mW
It's terrible.

I think the 2403 and 2401 are the same low power level.

I'd like to change it out for an esky 4 in one But I don't know if the coaxial
proportional output will be...

Well you get the idea it won't work.

The main motor is bigger than the one of the motors on the coaxial..
and the tail motor is quite smaller..
I'm sure the 4in1 on the Walekra is designed for this where as the
one from the coaxial is not..

I'd expect the bigger motor to overload the built in esc output on the esky
4inone.. and the drive levels and proportional levels to be completely wrong..

I'm a newb but I can figure out how things work.

I'd also like to just put an alterhante RX on it but..
But as soon as I do that I bet I need a TX with totally programmable curves to
manually setup the tail motor rate/ compared to the main ans such.

So really if I go this route need something nice like a spektrum (hate that spelling)
TX and RX...

And then... you can't hook the RX direct to the motors, I'd need TWO
ESCs which would add some weight :-(

GRRRR.....

And then for the crap of me I can't find ANY current rating on the
Walkera brushed motors anywhere :-(

I need to known which ESCs I can use whil still tryin to keep them small and keep the weith down..

Of course if I'm going through all this trouble... I shouldn't be even messing with the two brushed motors but should be getting brushless motors and matching escs..

ANd heck why stop now... really should be going with 3c and 11.1V battery and esc (for more power)..

And we're not done yet.. that blasted 45Degree head really needs to go
doesn't it.

And I still don't have a gyro (for the tail)..

I'n guessing I really don't need it if I program the rate/tracking half-way decent..
Or just get good at giving some rudder when I go up & down fast..
Already have to do that on the 180 anyway.
