Question
Motor advice on stock Eflite Airliner

Looking to get a set of motors I can "grow" with for my Eflite Airliner. I currently have two 25a Turnigy Plush ESC and D.E. Sport BEC, will be using Rhino 2150 3S 20C packs, although the next ones bought may be the Turnigy 2200 3S 35-40C and also considering in the distance future(hence the "grow") maybe some 4S running. Am I good with the Wicked 4000kv motor or should I get something else? I won't overstress anything I have, like rotor, batts, or ESC on this current setup? I'm sure that I would need a stand off, and bigger ESC when I get work up to 4S, any suggestions of what equipment would be needed for preparing for this growth step would be appreciated.

I would get the Wicked 4000s with the 2.3mm shafts and run on 3S. When you want to try 4S then you can send the motor back to me an upgrade to get the standoff adapters on them. But many are happy with this setup on just 3S so you may not even want to mess with 4S. The 25 amp ESCs may be a little on the small side. With newer lipos the amps will be probably closer to 30.

I dropped it off at the post office Saturday morning 1/16/10. It was shipped by priority mail and your delivery confirmation number is #9101150134711018386572

Thanks, I got that email. However, USPS hasn't updated beyond "we received the info but not necessarily the package" message. Maybe tomorrow, we'll see what happens. Thanks.

Yeah, wasn't totally relying on that as much as calculating the dates. Again, we'll see what tomorrow brings, and I'll let you know.

Well, nothing today. I'm a little miffed considering I paid extra for 2 day shipping.

I do not offer 2 day shipping, there is first class mail or priority mail, those are the only two options. The USPS does not guarantee their delivery times.

I understand, Priority mail is technically "2 day Priority Mail" therefore, most packages are delivered to major cities (which I'm in), within 2 days, and some 3 days. Although no guarantee, you don't expect it to take as long as first class, if you are paying extra money for it. This is now going past 4 USPS business days (not including the holiday) from the date of order processing. I know it's probably not your fault, but just keeping you informed. Weekend plus holiday probably got everything all wacky. Maybe it'll make it tomorrow.

Got them in today. Thanks. Final question, the wires are a bit short for my application, do you know if there is any harm extending about 3-4"? What guage wire does it use?
