i can run a 16xx or 17xx on this setup i don't intend using this motor for hotliner this will be a great lite setup for a 2.5 or 3m f3j if i am correct (if) this $80 setup will provide about 3000g of thrust on 3s and large prop.or smaller 14xx on a 2m hotliner on 4s.

magrinsi, you have to put some lube inside, the thin oil inside is only for protection, you have to remove that first with some dry paper/towel, then add good lube..

You can order som small quantity lube maybee from someone here, who have som extra isoflex(i think it was the name), they can maybee send you some for small fee.

Ask around..

Otherwise I think Freudenthaler has some lube on his site you can order..

The full answer is, for normal use the stuff in the gearbox from factory is likely fine. For running them way above their ratings - Kluber Isoflex (is it 9000? ) seems to work great. A few people here may have a stash, you might even be able to source some yourself being in Europe.

Yes it is!!
But the problem is to keep the oil in the GB, as they are usually are not liquid sealed.
