Question
What's the strongest motor you can put on an AR6400L?

I'm wondering whats the strongest motor I can run off of a AR6400L with builtin brushless ESC I pulled out of my crashed UM Corsair?

Thanks

That is an integrated brushed ESC, not brushless.
I would not put anything bigger than the one that came with the Corsair.

There are alternatives though.
Search for threads about upgrading the PZ-UM to brushless motors.

You need a new receiver, brushless ESC, new motor, prop and maybe a higher power battery if you really want a lot more power.


If you just want a little more power a slightly larger prop and higher C battery would be more practical.

A lot of guys swear by the BravoSX motor for more power. I'm happy with my Solo Pro over the stock motor, but will try the Bravo when I need to swap it out. You need to pull the pinion gear off the stock motor and install in on the replacement though. It's not hard and if you heat the pinion for a few seconds, it slides right on the new motor shaft. I did three in a matter of minutes earlier this week.

The GWS 5043 prop works great too, especially compared to the 3 blade stock.
