ERaider 48" Motor Question:

I have an Eraider taht I am comfy with, running Wattage Cobalt 400 with 10 cel 12v 2100 mah thru a 35A ESC (35A I think...), HiTec 5 system. It flies like it should I'm sure.
.................................................. .................................................. ......
I would like to upgrade the whole system, or switch to Lipos if possible.

Suggestions please.

Any ideas of which elec. would be my next step for performance.

Suggestions please.

I would like to buy a A-10 Warthog Electric that is near the same size.

Suggestions please.

I know about a few different models (GSW, EJF, Dare), but would like to know which is better and why.

Suggestions please.

Thanks in advance, you guys have really helped me in this hobby.

Darcin here is a good fairly cheap setup. that will be smokin fast Start with A het 4 wind from dynamoelectrics.com for the motor, A cc 45 10 cells of gp 2000 nimh or one 3s 3700 lipo from rclipos .com.And an apc 7/5 e prop.
It will work great.

Go to warbirds-rc.com- I got mine from there. Chris shops @ Dynamo electrics. Randy is "the guy", but the motors aren't listed on their web site.

The motors you want are the EDF series- the 4w is the 2200kv motor

I run a HET 3W with a 5x5 prop on my 48" Tazz with a Phoenix 35 and a Kokam 3S 3200. Clocked at 80+ level and 105 in a decent dive with that setup. Motor is barely warm after a long full speed flight.

I dont know the difference between the 4W and 3W, but as far as Im concerned the motors are excellent for the price.

The 3W and for 4W are the same family with different KV ratings. The 4W is 2200KV and the 3W is 2980KV. The 4W will let you replace amps for volts when you want to go fast.

In Mega-speak they are similar to the 16/15/3 and /15/4
