Bill, in which plane are you using this setup ?

Don't you think that the Kontronic 400, at 110 grammes, is quite on the heavy side, and that there should be motors with equivalent power in the 75 grammes range ?

The attached chart ( from http://justgofly.com/tech_450TH.htm ) is for a motor that weight only 55 grammes ! I believe that I will give it a try in my TwinJet (2 of them)

I am looking for killer set-up for booth, a MicroJet and a TwinJet.
