No you need the motor from the Hobbyzone Sports Cub S. The one, in the picture, weight more than the hole Mustang.

yes and with the 4 blade it wakes them up nicely. I had my p40 just about hovering.

its the easiest way to speed them up ive found. Dont take your motor mount out just hold it tight and twist the motor to break the glue. slide it out and slide the new one in with a dab of glue and your good to go. Let me know what you think. I ordered 3 from my lhs next one is the corsair.

oh had to mount my battery slightly more rear for cg.

Guy's,

The 8.5 x 23mm motor is the same one used in the MSRX and AS3Xtra. Several of us have been repowering the micros from the stock 20mm long motor with this motor. If you search my old posts you will find rpm data but no thrust data as I have no way to take it. It is a nice boost in power when matched with the Eflite 150 mah 45C batts.

John is correct the Micro Motor Warehouse -15 motor is another good choice. While it is only 20mm long it is a big jump in power. I have one in my Spit. The problem is that is that the extra power comes at a price and the 150 mah 45C batts will only give about a 2.5 minute flight before LVC. I have recently been flying with the Miniaviation 220 mah 45C batts but can't quite get a 4 minute flight. However it is cooling down now in Wisconsin and they may be fine in the summer.

In all cases I stick with a 9T pinion. With the Micro Motor -15 motors come with a neat nylon 9T pinion that works great.

My motor mount is loose from a recent crash. I was about to reglue it in when I saw the post about the cub motor. So now I'll just put the new motor in when I fix the mount. I should be able to try it out by Saturday (if RC planet ships today).

EDIT: Probably won't have it by weekend, but still looking forward to it...
