I have bought these in the past and I just ordered two more twenty minutes ago. Shipping was $5.51 registered from Singapore post. If I remember it took about 2 to 3 weeks the last time. They come in an envelope, kind of flat, then you just have to bend them open. Real nice actually. Not worth me soldering up a set at that price.

Hey..don't forget you will need a 5mm collet style prop adapter....they give you the Bolt on adapter for firwall mounting only.

If you need to order 1 try Headsuprc.com only a few $$$

P.S. you are gonna' love the motor IMHO it makes the FC Perfect !!...not so much a rocket ( but will scoot) more like a BULLDOZER

Pat......

P.S. you will probabaly not get shipping info from hobyzone until AFTER you already have the thing...They Suck that way...But you will get it aprox 4 days...so sit back and relax...I do not like their shipping notification....b ut they do come thru' in the end

I need to take a picture of the setup the builder used on mine. Very similar but he used wheel collets instead of solder. Simple and cheap.

I have done that on many larger planes. It works excellent!

The gear are definitely made to order (hand made) and are of good quality, but dont expect a miniature set of Robart gear! ~ Robin
Man!, Is that an elaborate bash or what?!!!!!

I have the Himax 3516-0840 ....way over priced...and I wanted a little more Ummph

The E-Flite is nice too But way over priced ( and Mind you...Most of my motors are the gold Axi's )

Keep your plane light enough and you can get off the ground in about a foot and a half is that SHORT field enough?

The big foot is JUST right !! @ for 18.00 if you dont like it..get somthing else...BUT I Promiss you will love it !! 12x6 prop & Order or buy a 5mm collet style prop adapter. I use a 60amp ESC. because I wanted too...also the big foot CAN fly on a 4s1p lipo too...but on the fun cub..Absolutly no reason for that.

I like mine soo much I bought a back up one too !! putting my $$ where my mouth is

Pat
+1 On the Bigfoot....I love mine....and he's right 3s flys great, 4s flys FAST! The other guys flying cubs couldn't belive how fast mine was on 4s. Great motor for the $$$ .

I know I do. I set the back end of the battery at the front edge of the cooling hole on the bottom. And that is with a very light motor. I consider that to be a bit of a nose heavy airframe. Heck, the front end of the battery only barely extends into the open forward portion of the the battery compartment. I can hardly see it! A heavier tail wheel assembly would help but I have had no problems with the stock one so it stays as is. I did fiberglass the inside of the motor area, but that and my motor certainly would not add up to the weight of most of the motors used by posters here.

My cub is not Nose heavy either....but I use at the spar ( aprox 60~65mm) as my CG..still have a little room to slide the lipo in either direction fore/aft. and mine is not nose heavy or tail heavy...Flys like its' on rails...but to each their own...

Would post videos...but my gopro2 videos gets so stripped down by youtube & Viemo...not worth the effort

I slide mine most of the way back too and fly around 80mm. I'm using a 480 motor too. With light flaps it flies inverted wit no change in climb or descent. If I monter motored it it would be very nose heavy.

Mine flies inverted with almost no down elevator, which is the way I like it. That is without any flaps. I have never tried flaps inverted. Never even thought of it. Might be interesting to try! I don't think I could reach 80mm CG without adding weight to the tail. Pretty happy with about 75.
