I just maidened my 40" Yak 54 (will be in the DW product list officially soon) with a 1100 kv dynamo - I was blown away how it tracks - not even one click of trim necessary. Amazing - like it was glued to rails. So far it is "naked" photos/video will follow soon once I get my graphics.
Thanks Mike! You Rock!

It's a little heavy and the 2836 doesn't have a back mount so you will have to reverse the shaft.

The 1100 kv dynamo is THE motor for the 40" DW planes IMHO. It is smooth as silk cause the bell rides on three bearings.

Good call Mark, I didn't see that, and I agree the dynamo would be good, used them my self.
