Twister.....Looks like some folks are buying them 4 at a time reselling or are they that good? If I didn't already have one I would be all over these deals. I bet his other competitors are pissing and moaning at his pricing. He must have purchased an ocean container full of them, or else Multiplex is discontinuing them. Either way, a smokin' deal!

At that price it's worth it to have a spare for parts only.

If you dont mind me asking, besides to re sell them (a perfect valid reason, by the way!)
why anybody needs 4 twisters and 3 minimags?

I sized the motor and it looks like you can use the stock plastic motor mount after all. I actuall sliced through the front of the plane and removed the back of the motor mount, the moved it back a little bit. the new motor will stick out just a bit. I'm getting it all back together this week and will throw some paint on it. I got the floats too, love the way they look on my fun cub. For some reason I think the prop is to small for the brushless set up, but I'll tinker with that a bit.

Good luck !

P.S....really liked dealing with BPHobbies. Met them at the WRAM show and didn't realize who they were (duh) but they were great to deal with on this transaction.
Can i see pics of your install? i just finished mine, i dont like how far the motor sits out, if i crash its going to strip out the motor mounts or break it. I used a metal mount from brushlessconversions.com?

Someone stated earlier this is Multiplex selling these. Makes sense. Probably just dumping stock that is scheduled to be discontinued. If not, someone was in the right place at the right time to buy this stuff up just to resell.

The best explanation I've heard here is that Multiplex is selling these items themselves. Perhaps they need to sell at a certain discounted rate for some reason if not going through a distributor.

If it was a reseller, I can only imagine they'd sell them for more to increase profits. Just wouldn't make sense otherwise. As long as your undercutting your competition a little bit, you'll still get most of the sales.
