Question
best arc motor for a funjet

Hi all,
I took a Multiplex Funjet in a trade. What is the best arc motor to put in the bird for great speed? I was thinking of an Arc 28 47 1.5 on 4s but any other motors will be concidered. I was offered a wild beast motor but those are real amp suckers.

Thanks
Joe

The 28-47-1.5 on a suitable 4s pack with a 6x4 APC sport prop will net you ~82 amps and 135-140 mph.
A similar setup is a 28-47-2 on suitable 5s battery with the same prop. Some people don't believe the 2T can take that kind of power, but my personal opinion is that it can just fine.

Either motor is awesome. I personally would got with the 28-47-1.5, and run it on 3s-4s with smaller batteries to keep the weight "low" and keep the fun in the "fun"jet.

That G3 probably wouldn't even break a sweat running the 1.5T at 80 amps. Sounds like a pretty killer setup for an honest ~140, and more then that out of a dive!
