Thanks
100amp, HET 2w-23 on 4s and 5.2x5.2 will get you around 130mph.

I've had no complaints with mine.

They are nice, but then your motor will need to be mounted on the outside of the airframe instead of inside.

Really excellent...I have bought a bunch of motors from him...all work better than advertised.

Don is a great guy to do business with.
If you send him a PM or email, he might be able to accommodate your mounting needs or offer a solution.

If you're looking at motors like the DonsRC ones, I think you'd be better off with the 'normal' Funjet which is a lot lighter than the Ultra. 300w will still make the FJU fly, but the original FJ would be better with those motors. A stock FJU is designed for 125mph+, not mid 90's which the Dons motors would give you.

Just my 2c....

speed cost money and speed mixed with cheap can cause serious injury or damage to you or someone else.

Is there a motor in the $25-$40 range that would work better for a FJU? Thanks

I've had good luck with these motors and they seem to hold up better than the Turnigy equivalent. They come in 2100kv, 2600kv and 2900kv versions.

They will get you over 100mph on 4s, probably on 3s with a bigger prop as well.

this is also a great motor , and you can also get some powerup 9gram metal gear servos there as well . i got this one of my strykers . it does around 110mph . ive learned the hard way to just buy good motors and be done with it. so bascially ive used some cheap motors . my only regret is the turnigy 28mm motors that burned out super fast at least this one and the one from toysonic has held up and are still being used . so at least i got my monies worth on them
