Seems to handle 1150w just fine. They also recommend a 55mm CG too

My Siren is not original in most key stress areas. The new nose is 3 layers and not the original single layer and fiberglass center joint ribbon.

A lot of "work" maybe, but less than a $500 true 2M hotliner airframe itself that I will crash at 150mph buahhahha that's dangerous.

It's the part of the hobby I enjoy, pushing my fabrication skills, faster, lighter, stronger, and basically free since I have years of materials on hand. I'm not trying to go faster per say, but climb faster between glide circuits and thermals.

I'll work some overtime someday if I find the need to invest in a real hotliner. For now the size and weight of the Siren fits nicely.

Mr Nice Guy, you better check to see if the motor is in stock... they are having issues with keeping track of inventory. Check out the EFX Racer thread for details.

Hey Kerwin49, the biggest clue that they didnt send the motor is the shipping weight of the 1st package.... It weighs less than the motor itself would weigh lol..... That's BS that you had to go through so much trouble when it's obvious the total weight was lower than it should be.

Hope you get the motor soon.

Yes, I meant Kerwin. Good deal Kerwin... I hope it comes soon.
This is still one of my top two or three planes to fly.
