Your wallet's loss is your gain.

You can use 85MG all over. But Personally on the one I am flying I like 5085s on the whole thing for the torque/precision etc. theKM has even used the savox digital HS-65 alternative and it works. I forget what that number is 255 or 256 or 257 or whatever those crazy numbers are.

51 slick motor/etc/battery combos work great. I would recommend nothing bigger than a 4s 2500ish I fly on 4s 2200 and 4s 2500s but have tried up to 4000 which are a bit heavy.

The Savox 0255 is considered as the HS-85 replacement. Problem is it's a bit smaller than the 85, close to a 65 so some modification to the plane would probably be needed to fill the gap.

I have been flying the 0255's in the bipe... with abuse they will get a little backlash in the gear train, but their action is pretty smooth in operation... need to be looked after more than HS85MG's...

The recommended Hacker will get a bit warm if you don't build some scoops to direct airflow to the back of the motor. If you do that it's perfectly fine. I ran one for two summer seasons here in Arkansas in 95-100 degree temps. After building the scoops the motor never got above about 115-120 degrees F. No worries at those temps at all.
No motrolfly in London huh? I bet we could arrange to fix that. If you wanted one I can buy it and when I receive it have it shipped to you. Of course you have to cover the shipping and it will cost a bit more than what we would pay here, but I would be willing to do that for you. Send me a PM if you want to pursue it...

That is what will likely go in my bipe. I just converted my 51" Slick to that motor from an a30-12xl. With the lightened version of the 3615 the weight was 7.2 oz with x-mount/prop adapter/nut/washer, which is only about .3 oz heavier than the a30-12xl I think (I forgot to weigh my a30 with all the goodies on when I pulled it out). But the motor makes a good bit more power than an a30-12xl and run cooler to boot.
