Thanks.
Its nice that the motor uses the same X mount pattern. It seemed slightly larger than the stock motor, but you can't ask for better than a drop in.

request for a little help

Hi,
Could someone with a stock Arcus do a quick check for me?

While swapping out the 900kV motor with the HobbyKing 850kV motor, I wasn't expecting there to be washers hiding between the X mount and the plastic firewall

I "think" there were 2 washers on the top left and 2 washers on the bottom left.
Based on the gap between the spinner and the cowling, this looks to be correct.
Lots of right thrust and looks to be about zero to very slightly down thrust with the new motor installed.
(the Hobbyking 850kV is the same size, weight, bolt pattern, X mount and prop adapter as the stock 900kV)

Can someone take a quick look and verify these washer locations?
Thanks in advance.

BTW, with the Glacier 4s 1800 30C, a Xoar 12x7 (Falcon 12x7 carbon fiber props shipped today), stock ESC and the 850kV motor, the wattmeter was showing 425-440watts at about 32 amps at full throttle (ATV set to 95% on my throttle channel). Just about what eCalc had predicted and within the max rating of the motor. Don't think I'll be in full throttle for very long (seems to have more than enough power to weight )

Nothing better than a maiden flight that puts a smile on your face.
10 mph winds, but it flew beautifully. The 850kV motor, 12x6 CF prop, Glacier 4s/1800 all worked great.

If this plane is ever scaled up in size and offered, I will be first in line to order one.
