Since Sapac is out of business, it will be hard to find the MB1 motors. I wasn't able to find anyone with them in stock.

Alert5 RC, formed from former Sapac employees, is supposed to be starting up and I believe they will carry a rebranded MB1 and other of the Sapac products.

Closet thing to MB1 I've found is the HK 3000kv 2839 motor.

3mm less than MB1 but 48oz\50amps\4s, 64oz\70ams\5s in the HK T-50 shroud

Not bad for 11 dollars

There are other motors that are close in performance and even better like the arc but don't touch it on price or weight.

for instance you get get a 28mm-58mm-2900kv from HK but they weight 6.5oz - 7oz without the fan.

The cyclone is the only product I know of on price and performance and it's 10 skins more...make sure winding wires are insulated.

Looks like one of those yellow caution signs. What did it say, "CAUTION ... CAUTION SIGN"?

More importantly, will the plane live to fly another day?
