Thanks for the hint. I hoped to get a more concrete recommendation, because I don't know, which of the possible motors are really good

But maybe I should just buy the recommended motor...

The recommended 28-45-3600kV Ammo is great.

I've also run the HET 2W-18 (3650kV).

Shop around if you want. Any 28mm diameter, about 45mm length, about 100g - 130g motor will swing the APC 5.25 x 6.25 on 2S well (and 4.5 x 4.1 on 3S when you're ready). You'll want 3.2mm output shaft.

Maybe others will chime in with other "slow/beginner" prop/battery/motor suggestions/combinations.

My thoughts on motor choice from HK are now obsolete as the Turnigy motor I run has vanished from their site. But basically it's an equivalent of the Ammo 28mm motor Tim said works good. The Turnigy 28mm inrunner was preinstalled in the Hobby King Me163b Komet from 5 years ago. Grossly overpowered (1Kw claimed) on 4S and most models/ESC's didn't survive. Mine did because I removed the crazy inrunner motor before ever attempting to fly the Komet. When my Rifle 1m arrived I immediately considered and then installed that motor and now power it via 3S and a prop larger than the 4.1 X 4.1 supplied with the Komet.

Again, all pretty much obsolete info...

Thanks for the hints. I think I stay with the recommended motor, The HK alternatives available in Europe are not so good.
