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)?
Hi mate
I'm assuming you reside in the Land Down Under, if so stick yer nose in the Aussie FPV Forum (if you haven't already), no doubt you'll find someone there who lives near to you to hook up for some flying, and there are a few guys who fly these Bix2's and fly with different combos, me included, I fly with a different motor in mine but can't remember which motor I went for, haven't flown for a few weeks and at work atm...
Chase up Gommer or Peril to start with
