>>"Anyone tried the Zagi Speed Timed and balanced reverse rotation pusher motor ? http://www.zagi.com/index.php?main_...=43&cPath=6&ses Draws only 2 1/2 amps more.<<"
Not sure how you managed to pull only 2-1/2 amps on the Zagi Speed 400, Reverse Wound, pusher motor. I pulled around 12-14 amps, when using a 7 cell GP1100 pack. Managed to burn up this motor, after numerous flights (90+), and just installed a second Zagi pusher. Recomendations for B/L are most valid, the way to go if you want performance and duration. Checked the amps on the new motor, when using a 1500HC Kokam 3S1P Lipo, and I came up with 16.5. In all cases, I have been using the stock prop, more recently mounted via a MPJet prop adaptor.
For those who like to denigrate the T-Hawk and point out all the "mods" that "have to be made" in order to fly the plane, please note in stock form this plane flies very well. Those of use who wish to modify the plane are doing so in the interest of pushing the performance level well beyond the original design. The fact that the plane remains very flyable, when so modified, speaks volumes as to the validity of the original design. Also, it is interesting to see the number of experienced fliers who choose to fly the T-Hawk, modify it, etc. This is very much a "second" plane as it is a trainer, with much better potential for souping up. I expect to upgrade to brushless on my T-Hawk later this season. First, however, I have to burn up that Zagi motor!!

For the record, the 2 1/2 amps was the ADDITIONAL draw as identified in the listed site.
So some one downgraded the stock T-Hawk ! Well, it's a great ship I would say...again. Others are entitled to their opinion.
Mods are always learning experiences for me, and not all are intended to push performance. Whatever turns you on, I guess.
What I do resent is someone refering to the T-Hawk (type) as just toys.

Only a quick wipe down of the parts with water or a drop or two per thimble sized amount of glue is enough to kick it off. In high humidity areas you may not even need water. It is light weight and super strong.
