I ran this combo with Parkzone's cheap 70 cell and the Full River 90(before Hyperions came out) cells without any problems. I think I even got 5 or 6 min flight out of the 70cells. You get 29 grams thrust at .9 amps http://www.bsdmicrorc.com/index.php?productID=625
Awesome post! Thanks for the link. I have tried a basic 6mm gear drive from hk, but the shaft is so soft and the run out so great its hardly worth the trouble. I am happy with my 3g brushless performance, bit it would be nice not to deal with all that wiring.
There are no posted specs on this motor. Do you know the approximate weight and the method of attachment? Does it have a hole to mount to the end of a rod like the ember?
