Any suggestions? All the ones I looked at earlier in the forum seemed to be O/S or I couldn't find them. HK may drop some models as new ones replace them i guess. Any toughts would be helpful!
I'm looking to build a ventus and am struggling to decide on a suitable motor, did you decide on one? If anyone has any suggestions from current HK stock it would be appreciated. Or if anyone can give me an idea what I should be looking for that would be great. I gather around 50g?, 28mm? but am a bit confused with how many W will be needed. Also the mounting/ reversing the shaft? Any suggestions and tips would be appreciated.
