Fling glider mod

Hi everyone!

Is it possible to stuff a MUX micro Radian receiver and motor into a Fling glider?

Thank you,

Ron

He means UMX...

The motor itself would fit, 8.5mm only, but the gearbox I doubt

I would rather consider the smallest motor I know, 20mm 22g with a decent 1400 kv for such task:

Hi Renatoa,

Thank you for the reply! Sorry for the the misspelling! I was worrying that the motor/gearbox of the E-Flite 8.5 MM motor and gear box wouldn't have enough power to allow the plane to climb at all even though hanging the gear box out of the nose would be an ugly addition to the sleek drag-free look of my Fling. I'll check out the 20 mm motor.

Thanx again,

Ron
