Went out flying in a good amount of wind today and making high speed passes when one of the horns disconnected. The half round stopper came of and I lost control and crashed. Just a little tear. Fixed her up and decide to switch the power plant. I went with a 2826 2200 kv from turnigy. Bench test show with a 7x3 prop on 3s to pull 402w at 42a and 6x4 gives 298w at 28a.

I will test her later today. Anyone know what kind of speed I should expect from this set up. Using hobbyking 40 esc.

Drink lots of caffeine before you fly. You may hear a sonic boom!!!!

Make sure you have a video camera on.

We have planes in 48 states. We can't figure out what is wrong with Rhode Island and Delaware. Where are your orders guys? Do people there not have fun?

looking forward to hearing how you get on with that motor ..... I have it on a couple of Depron Delta wings and they go like the proverbial $$$$$$$$$ .....

I was thinking I might convert one of my Assassins from the existing 2812 red motor to the 2826 2200kv motor ........

Best is to not worry about weight much and rewind your red motor with 8 or 9 winds of MicroDan 24 ga wire. You won't ever go back to a stock motor.

Got a motor question....I purchased the recomended motor from Value Hobby and just mounted it - the shaft looks like it could be easily bent due to it's long length.

Are you guys cutting down the stock shaft or do I have something messed up?

Many of us have been flying these rewound motors for over a year with hundreds of flights and no problems. The only thing I do is clean and reoil bearings every 50-100 flights (original bearings are still holding up). Whatever you do, avoid low temp wire like Radio Shack has. I recommend 24 ga MicroDan wire and their Scorpion Lube (if you're already ordering from MD)

I built a test stand to measure rpm, thrust and watts (see below)

That prop and adapter don't look like what most of us use (HK-7x6e APC clone) with a 3mm prop saver slid down most of the way.

I measured the shaft (FC2812) and it sticks out ~17mm from bell.

This is similar to what I'd guess most of us are using.

This is all I am using on most of my motors.

I will occasionally will break a bolt trying to tighten them but they hold as good as the more expensive ones I have bought.
