How do you want the plane to fly?
As a true 60 2-stroke would fly it?
Hotter? Easier pace?

Something in the 5055 size would be a starting point.
Motors are available billed as "60 sized":

(As always, I suggest the HeadsUp route due to their quick and cheap $2.00 shipping out of Florida. Orders placed in the morning go out in the afternoon and arrive here in Nebraska 3-4 business days later).

Hi DustBen,

Thanks for your quick answer.


I am not sure if the 60 2 stroke is the best choice but it is reccomended by the dealer.
I do like slow flights but i always want to have the power under my control in anycase.. So i guess 90 2 stroke equivelent will be better choice for this plane..

any suggestions?

thanks..

Telemaster power

My Telemaster uses an Axi 4130-16, on 6s, turning a 15-8 apc prop.
It will easily tow banners, haul cameras, drop a parachuter, or tow 2 to 3 meter sailplanes. Slows to a crawl, or perks up to briskly cruise around the sky!

I have used quite a few different sizes of these motors and they are superb!

A great value!

Use it with a 6 cell lipo and 15x6 to 8 prop.

Or you could try this one. Cheaper, higher KV and shipping has to be cheaper and faster then HK. http://www.hobbypartz.com/96m606-big...030-400kv.html
