The SlowStick has probably flown on over 100 different motors.
The slower you want it to fly, the lighter you need to build it.
But if its windy where you fly, you'll need more power.
The heavier it is, the more powerful the motor is, the slower it Won't fly.

You need between 75 and 100 watts, so a 150w motor. or close. More motor, more weight,
bigger battery, more weight,,

This is the motor we used. 180w burst.
