I built a dollar tree foam plane and it weighs about 997 grams. What is a good size motor and esc? Im trying a 650kv and 50a esc. Im kinda new to the motor sizes and pull. Faster v slower and stronger. This is my 3rd scratch build. She flew really nice. I landed it fine, but rolled into a snow/ice bank and now the motor has lost power. I tried different batteris, my main battery for it is a 14.8 2200 mah. Any ideas?

Hi Fepsphan,The motor should be able to get wet,did you take the prop off and put it on backwards?
Usually approx 10% of plane weight is a good place to start for motor weight.Kv will depend on the type of plane it's for and size of prop you want to spin.
Maybe blow the motor out with compressed air while turning over by hand,I've had sand and gravel get in there and make it feel chunky.Hope this helps,maybe someone else will have ideas.
