38mm Overall length (not including shaft)
20mm Can length
35mm Can diameter
1130kv
120g weight
4mm shaft

Does anyone have any more information?

Thanks, Dave.
Not much info is out there, you bout have the jest of it, mine pulls tic over 300watts around 27amps with a 10x6, just read with a 10x7 watts go up to about 375. After some odd 60 flights, it is a decent motor, but I am not sure that motor would handle 4s. What specifically info are you looking for?

Thanks for your power readings.

The reason I'm asking is that my Blaze is "no more" due to a heavy crash (failed to pull out of fast dive).

I'm looking for a non foam sports glider/warm liner that would suit the motor and esc from the Blaze.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Dave.

Srry ta hear.....
Im sure there are several models that it would fit, balsa or mouldie.
Seems that 35mm can is almost common in this size of bird. But to refer one, I dont have one.

IMO I wouldnt put the motor in a expensive mouldie, especially after fast diving nose landin.
But thats just me!

Hello,

My Blaze seems to naturally roll to the left. I have tried trimming and setting the servo arms but it just keeps on rolling to the left when i centre the stick. Someone suggested to buy better quality servo's. If so any recommendations?

Thanks
Tom

Check the wings for warps and the v-tail for misalignment. All control surfaces should be in the neutral position with the stick centred. Not sure what you mean by 'setting the servos arms' but they should placed on the servos with the servos electrically centred.

Try balancing the Blaze laterally. Mine was way off. I didn't want to add weight so I balanced it by removed the heavy wire from the heavy wing tip and made a piece of thinner music wire to install in its place. Problem solved for me anyway. 150 flights later still going strong.

A branded 10x6?

Did not have one Blaze yet but I will soon get one and also get the Blizzard spinner and recommended prop.

Hi,

Mine did the same. A nickel attached to the wing undersurface with a bit of servo tape fixed this for me.

Usually a glue gun will fix a foamie. A Moldie would be difficult to fix. Wood is also more time consuming and expensive than foam.

It will be one that just comes with us when we are away - The only worrying point is the ESC was SO hot it shut down on finals.. very very luck but this was with a 1300 15s pack ! An upgraded esc ( 40amp ) will be swaped before the next flight for sure. Anyone else had issues here ? I was going to use 3s 2200 35c as the fit and CG was spot on ! Thanks GOD i did not although its my fault as I should of not trusted the set up I should of put it on the emp meter but hey..it IS a plan n play set up
I had the same problem. I cut a few vent slits in the side and that cools it plenty.

For sale

I have a blaze ep for sale if anyone should be interested. It's an ep kit but without the esc. The esc failed in a different glider.

It's never crashed and in good condition, slight hanger rash but nothing that's a problem.
Collection from Stone, staffs (uk)

I was hoping for £50.... Sorry to hijack the thread!

Fast Dive Loses Aieleron Control

When I dive it down really fast.....the ailerons stop working!!!!!

Are the servos really weak?? I reinforced the surface with carbon fibre....but I think the servo too weak to hold them in place during a fast dive.

Any thoughts??

Herb

Flew my Blaze today with an Eagletree logger and GPS. I logged 130kph (80mph) out of several dives, and hit 150kph at max. Since the Blaze is barely regarded a warmliner, what kind of speed can be expected from a true hotliner?
