You can fly them slow and in a very small space. Have a go you will not be dissappointed.
I now have a small video cam mounted on mine. cheers

I run one of those motors in my Mini Super Cub. Lots of power on 2S, 3S is insane.

A little on the hot side for this :

Or the Mini Intern from Radical RC. Either may need some "cowl" trimming.

GWS Pico Cub F or the GWS Pico Tigermoth. Both fly really well with the BW. Use either a GWS 8040 prop for general flying or the 9050 if you want a bit more power. With a 800mah 2s Lipo I get 20 minutes of flying time.

The Cub is a $19 airframe from myatomic for the NPS (No Power System) version.

The Tigermoth is a bit more expensive for it's NPS version, but it's a sweet flying / great looking biplane.

I had an Eflight SE5-A that was a great flyer with this motor and an 8x6 prop, 450 3cell lipo.

Heres the info on it:

I had over 250 flights on mine last year before I got careless and crashed her.

Isn't it a bit to big for the GWS "Picos"?
I was thinking it will be more suited to somthing like the GWS spitfire or zero

IMO it's great for the picos with 8040 or 9050 prop on 2s Lipos.

It's a very versatile motor. It'll power 3D planes up to maybe 10 oz or so, and milder planes up to 15 oz or so.

Planes I've powered with that motor (purchased from headsuprc.com): a scratch built 24" Firefly (SuperFly clone,) 32" Depron shockflyer, SkyArtec Cessna 182, a 35" Depron 3D bipe (Jimmy Wade Challenger.)

Other planes that come to mind that could use it: a lightly built Mountain Models Switchback, or any of several GWS airframes (eg. Formosa, E-Starter, maybe even the AT-6.)

On a 2 cell the 24g motor would be ok for the Beaver, but remember the Beaver has a Pico Stick wing, so keep it light.

I have lots of planes with the BlueWonder.
Heres a few, plus several more.

Could work. I'm just starting the build of a GWS AT-6 at the moment, and if it comes in light enough, I might just use a blue wonder on it. I'm not so good at guessing final AUW, but 15 oz. seems plausible. Maybe 12 oz. if I go with smaller battery (eg. 3S/800.)

I see no feedback regarding the GWS warbirds,is the BW too small for them?
I want a plane with ailerons.

I ran my BW motor in my Slow Stick for a while. It is a very versatile little motor.

I'm pretty sure an Estarter would be good with a BW on 3s and a 8040/9050 prop. I've never built a gws warbird, but if they are light enough it should work.
