I haven't looked on youtube for a faster one. (only these threads) Maybe there is.
I have some MEGA 16/45/1 (2780kv) motors with 4mm and 5mm shafts on the way.
Those are more realistic speeds
I like when people take the effort and decency to post what the plane can actually do when it's not pushed by a 30kt. wind!
Great to hear about the 16/45/1 motors becoming available.
These give the opportunity to run the high power without being on the edge.
...or maybe ULTRA high power and still be on the edge!
Gary, what do you think would be the best use for the 5mm shaft motor? That's what I've got and I would LOVE to run it in the Mach alloy fan.
Any chance there could be a 5mm shaft adapter for the fan?
