Nice!

I would be interested, but the UPS International shipping alone costs $98.87, so roughtly I'd buy three motors and receive one...

If anybody knows a (much) cheaper way to get one (or two) across the pond, please let me know.

Regards, Jan.

Thanx to some digging and a lot of help from Steve (sgomes) the set for the C-455 X mount and the C-470 rotor end prop adapter for the 4200 series of motors from Heads Up RC are easily adapted. The x fits 2 of 4 holes and can be drilled / expanded to fit other 2. The rotor end prop takes a bit of work with a swiss pattern file and a drill press. I did a front prop adapter from a Rimfire, came out very crude looking and a lot of work. These Heads Up pieces are reasonably priced and shipping is very quick from Florida. Check out the solder jig, neat ,for under $20 shipped. Hope this helps someone!! John Sard with Thanx to (sgomes)

I see.

Yeah, mine came with mount and prop adapter. Just need 8 short M3 screws to mount them on.

With apc 15x8 and 4s-4000, the 34-24-750's max amp draw was 82 A and 165 oz of thrust, temp 120F (tested with larger ESC)

With apc 15x6 and 4s-4000, max amp draw was 67.5 A and 160 oz of thrust, temp 118 F (tested with larger ESC)

Better quality and runs much smoother than Rimfire motor.

The plot below was tested with ICE 50, so I set the current limiter at 70 A peak.
