XPower XC3520/10 motor

Do not know what Emax GT motor you have -you only give the Kv of the motor ..

However, the recommended motor for this TopModel glider is: XPower XC3520/10
- http://www.topmodel.fr/en/product-de...power-xc352010
Weight: 153g
KV: 1100 RPM/V
Max current: 40A
Dimensions: 35x48,3mm
Shaft diameter: 5mm

-They suggest a 40A ESC, and with 3S Li-Po and 10" or 11" prop, you get RPM between 10,000 to 11,000.

You need a motor ~150g, with Kv ~1100, ~35mm diameter, 48mm long.
The typical Turnigy motor would be a "3548",
