Ahh, that's clear now thanks for that Ian.
Unfortunatley that's a little beyond my hobby skills lol, I think a washer in the bottom mount would lift it enough, I just wondered if there were other ways (like grinding a little off the bottom plate).

Thanks though

Grinding would be safer, as using washers will change your thrust angle which might cause some strange power-on handling

no the 20C rating is really poor and you will puff the battery trying to make good power with it get something with a higher C rating
take care

Ok, but what is considered the minimun C rating for: 3s and 4s batteries then?
Also the dimensions in the battery picture in prev post....will it fit sizewise?

It would be nice if you 4S users could post what C rating you are using

I used 40c 1800mah 4s, but 2200 would be better

Heck 45/90c nanotech would be awesome you can never have too much C rating, and they are all pretty cheap

sharp paint job, even if it is green and yellow

one thing that caught my eye, If that were mine, Id stick something in front of the battery to act as a stop.

if for some reason, failed esc or servos or whathave you occurs, that battery will destroy everything in its path, should the a collision cause everything to be forced forward. trust me. lol

Do you know how many amps this combination draws?

Made some changes to my motor mount so I can run the 36mm outrunner as an 'inboard' setup, which also allows the use of an inrunner later on. I used 50x50x3mm right angle aluminum screwed to 6mm ply with the carbon spars sandwiched between. Also cut the canopy down even more, glued it in and added a 3mm coro canopy/hatch and added a set of wipers over the finger holes. Makes it tricky to balance auw around 1280g, don't need ballast in the nose with the inboard motor.

Recommendations for an inexpensive HK motor that will work with the remaining RTF electronics? I would think the 25A ESC could run a bigger motor than the RTF, but I haven't found the RTF specs so I don't really know what I have.

Not looking for 100mph+ here...just a modest but worthwhile upgrade over stock.

You can't really go past a suppo style 2212 2200kv (aka 2826) but hk don't actually sell them or anything like it unfortunately. About 50g, pulls about 22-25a on 3s with 6x4e and good efficiency. Should take the skyfun to what it should be stock, which would be close to a stock stryker-c. $10 delivered from rctimer

Thanx. So that would be this one?
http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo...7&productname=

I note it calls for a 30A ESC. Is the SkyFun 25A up to the task?

All I've found on the original motor is it's 1800kv. I assume since it uses an 11V battery and 25A ESC, it might be about 200W. But from the complaints of lackluster performance, I wonder if it's really that high?
