Actually, that plane is tiny. Admittedly it does go off the screen at some times. You need to watch full screen and higher resolution if you want to actually see the plane most of the time. It's in frame more than you think.

Feugo, thanks... that video reminded me of the sound Scrappy wingtips make!

LF, that 13T-D setup is designed to travel around 60-90mph in small/light/slippery planes. Using that wind in a Stryker (light or heavy) would be sorta like installing an F1 engine in an 18 wheeler. I think it will be a lot more fun with an 8" prop & lower Kv like Dave used. I couldn't imagine a Stryker going more than like 45mph with a 25gm motor. That's close to pitch speed for the typical 10A 8040 rewind. I think a slightly "hotter" 8040 setup would be the way to go.

Joe, it's almost like a micro f5b setup. Just need a folder, LOL! These are such versatile little motors... I think we've only touched the tip of the iceberg as far as what can be done with them.

Tell me about it.... I keep building smaller and smaller while at the same time I can see less and less.
Not overly clever.. But flying spaces keep shrinking on me.

I'll bet there is some open, tree-free, space at the northern tip of Nunavet!

Sad ain't it?
We humans have a long demonstrated prediliction to create/live in Anthills... until the energy water and/or food runs out.

I believe the stock motors used 9-10 turns with 4 strands of 32awg (3000kV) or 14T with 3 strands of 32awg (1500/1300kV - 14mag/16mag bells). As for the stator insulation materials, I would check the numerous threads on the subject and pick the lesser of the evils that fits you best.

thanks for the reply the original winding is very tight i dont think i could achieve this what would the equivalent 3000kv winding be with single strand and gauge?

cheers

Loctite 410 is good for touching up the bare spots on your stator. I use a toothpick to smooth it on the areas to be repaired. It may take a couple of thin coats. Make sure to protect any surfaces you don't want ruined. This stuff does not come off!

funny u say that i was told a few days ago to use the loctite 410 to lock the same motor to the mount as i have had the motor twist on 4-5 motors now and snap the wires i am going to find this loctite now cheers can someone tell me if a 10T 25g will work on the blue wonder? looking for 3000kv or better to suit a 4.1x4.1-4.75x4.75 need the motor to be close if not faster than the original 3000kv on 3S 1000mah batts

Download the rewind-BW.zip file from Trug's blog page, that is an Excel spreadsheet that has pretty much all of the details on all of the winds for the red and blue Wonders.

You can download the free OpenOffice.org application suite to run the spreadsheet with if you do not have Excel.

heres the pic im using just a standard hextronic 3000kv 24g brushless motor with a 4.75x4.75 prop the prop i think is a EM not APC bought from himodel i think my customised airfoil plays a big part in the top speed im using a 1000mah 3S lipo i only have 3 videos they can be found below i have plenty of these motors but only 1 is any good the rest are buggered hence me trying to rewind them
2nd flight 25" flying wing 174 kph (4 min 58 sec)
