I need the best quality motor for a aerobatic 1200 g plane and eflite su26.

Hi friends:
I have a switch plane from flyzone, with maxed throws in sport configuration running 10x5E prop and supertigre .10 motor on 3s 2200 mah Lipo ,with this setup the plane runs fine using short burst, but the weight is too much for that motor and gets hot.
I want upgrade for a powerful motor and improve the power of the plane.
I want a Hyperion or Scorpion motor, other choice could be a eflite .25, what you think?
I want upgrade motor for my eflite Sukhoi 26 too, any idea?

Regards!

'Best'? Ordering a $2000 custom motor from Kontronik with silver windings and ceramic bearings .

In seriousness, a scorpion motor would be your best bet. I don't know exactly the plane you're talking about, haven't found much stats for it online. Play around with eCalc and scorpion's line and see how you can go there. Prepare to pay $200 for a good power system. Use a scorpion ESC.

Ok, i have 300 bucks for the change, I have a greatplanes 45 amp ESC and DE sport bec already, but if other ESC is needed no problem, i want a bullet proof power system.
Can you recommend what scorpion should get? I think 400 - 450 watts for the switch is good (the stock motor is around 240 watts with 10x5e prop.)

Regards!

Err... I can't tell you off of the top of my head. Scorpion's website is pretty easy to search for the right system (they list wattage in the data chart, so easy to find right one), and from then on, use eCalc - it has a complete up-to-date library of scorpion systems. A but busy right now - can't find one for you myself - sry.
