Mini Pop Wing

I do have another one of those HXT 3000kv motors NIB (I bought two) but I don't want to put it on only to burn it up too. Right now my mini popwing is down until I figure out what motor I can use.
I used a Eflite 180 motor with a 6 X 5 (I think) prop on it. I flew it indoors as it was windy for the test flight and it was great! I didn't think the Eflite 180 would push it around but wow was I wrong! That little motor screamed around the dome at Tolland Star Hill and everyone who was skeptical were as surprised as I was. The wing is really maneuverable and rather fast for the indoors (or is it I am too slow for it?). I used 5 gram servos and an 800 Mah battery that was laying around. I paid under $30.00 for the kit--what a bargain.
