Hey Guys, just ordered a B2 kit from the Australian HK warehouse and I've come across a slight dilemma about motor choice, because of the limited selection of parts at the Australian warehouse I ended up ordering a NTM 3536 1800kv as the motor for it, after sitting down and having a proper think about it I realised that this would be way over powered and require a fair bit of modification to the motor pod.
I'm planning for the plane to be used as my 'fun' FPV plane, simple board camera and a small 5.8ghz setup.
My other option is using a spare AXN clouds fly motor that I have lying around, with it in a dry AXN I get near vertical performance with a 6x5 prop pulling about 18 amps, this seems far more reasonable to me now.

So does anyone have any experience with the axn motor in the B2 (or B1)?
