I have the 2200kv inrunner from HK that was in the ez, a 850kv outrunner from a quad, and the 1200kv Ritewing OEM motor from my ZII that had a good life and quick death.

I'd like to know if the ritewing motor swinging an 8x6 or so would just be too much for a loaded down SkySurfer? I think the 850kv would be a bit of a slug, but the 2200kv inrunner worked OK in the loaded down ez using a 6x4. I was using a 3s 2600mah lipo in the ez, and planned on using a similar battery in the SS.

I appreciate your opinions!

I have the same 1200kv ritewing motor but use a 10x6 prop on my ZII with 3S batteries. I don't think an 8x6 prop would fit your SS. You need to go smaller 6x4 which then means more rpm or kv for the motor. 1200kv may not be enough.
