Most on this thread are using a 28-14 or 28-20 size motor with the most popular being the Sunnysky 2814/1000Kv or the Cobra 2820/1170Kv. Both of these motors are more powerful than the same size Turnigy.

An SK3 3536/1200 would be close (it is a 28-20 size) and should provide plenty of power. You could also try a Turnigy 3530/1000 but this will be a bit under-powered.

Hope that helps!

Just to clarify
The stock motor is a 3536 which is as you said 28-14.
The SK3 3536/1200 is then also a 28-14. A 28-20 would be a 3542.

My bad I guess

I should have looked more closely at the SK3. Seems these are not labeled clearly as the length should be from the mount surface, not the back of the bearing. Instead then use the NTM 3536 910 (4S) or 1400(3S) which is a 28-20 or an SK3 3542

An NTM 3542 is actually a 2826, same size as the G10 so again that is big!

No no, my bad, I f'd up, you are 100% correct, but CAN size does vary quite a bit on motors even though they have the same size stator.

Move along people, nothing to see here, just two old guys losing their minds, specially me

Another voice from geezerville to add to the confusion.
I'm not familiar with the G10, but the SK3 series motors are pretty fair in a tractor installation but they are no good for pusher configurations where you must use the add-on 6mm rear prop mount. The SK3 series have a nice big front bearing, but use a tiny rear bearing that cannot stand any prop imbalance or other extra load very well. Take one apart, and you will see what I mean right away. I discovered this as a result of two seizures in the first half hour of flight with two SK3-3548-840s that really let me down. Frankly, I've switched to another motor with more robust rear bearings.
the spinner is indeed huge. I recognize the type- I have a couple like it, and they are the wrong way to go on a pusher config. for several reasons.
Shortening the shaft is also a good idea, and easy to do with a dremel and abrasive disc cutter. But if you just get rid of the spinner, your balancing problems will be eased a lot.
By the way, an incredible job of covering on the silver stuff. What is it, and how did you do it? Do you know your AUW yet?

You young Guy's think it's bad now, wait till you reach my age.. Have to look at your driver's license each day to make sure the name your using is the right one.

Oh cool, that's good news because I've got one on the way

hey gang,
I've been having problem configuring MFD autopilot on my FX-61 and have not maiden yet. It's frustrating.
I promise maiden video(and crash ) soon as I get that that resolved. To compound the delay just received a 73" GLIDER in mail, been building that last few days AND received 330size miniquad. Did I mentioned I originally got my FX-61 back in Nov 2014? I'm a chronic procrastinator!

wazoo, thanks for compliment. I used chrome Monokote from LHS for cover. I am not too worried about losing orientation.

Yeh, but aren't you worried about being blinded?
