I saw in the other thread a couple of guys recommending the Turningy 35-36C TR 35-36C

Is this the motor they were talking about? Because the most recent few reviews were saying they had chronic bearing problems and motors burning up in flight.
Even with the low price I can't look past this. Any comments?

Very few here ever recommend anything by Turnigy...

The recommended is always the Omega 72g 1100KV Motor... it was specifically designed for the airframe because there wasn't a motor with its power and weight class... The next recommended motor is typically the Eflight 480 but it weighs more and you have to drill out motor mount holes since Eflight has an odd motor mount size.

I'd probably also consider the Motrofly DM2610-1100 as another alternate but riight now, I can't recall what others have said about it on this airframe...

Yup, you are. Your huck is nose heavy, neutral balance will fix the problem. Move the battery back a little at a time and re-trim the plane. Do this until it will fly inverted with little to no elevator input and your problem will go away. Keep it mind the closer to neutral/tail heavy the plane is balanced, the more authority the elevator will have during flight: i.e. twitchy.

As long as it is not excessively nose heavy the affects on performance will be minimal. My Edge is neutral and I love it. However, some people prefer a slightly nose heavy condition. My son prefers slightly nose heavy in his planes. The 71" A.J. Slick in post #44 is his, obviously it is not negatively affecting his flying.

Fly Low, David

In this case.. IMO, the Omega is the best bang for the buck at 425w peak... the Motrofly just behind that at 350w followed by the Hacker at 300w... the Eflight falls in the rear with 275w... Oddly enough, the weights of each motor also go in that order from the lightest two being the Omega and Motrolfly at 72g, Hacker at 79g, and Eflight weighing in at a hefty 87g...

I do know a couple of guys mentioned having issues with the Omegas... but the majority have had nothing but praise for them.. I'm one that has never had an issue with the 3 that I own.

I do recommend the 3 Omega's ( when appropriate of course ), Motrofly's ( I only own one ATM, but love it ) and Hacker's. I've heard enough good reports about EF Torque's from people I trust that I'd also have no issue recommending them. In all cases, I look at the specs for each brand's motor and select which one I think best fits the need. Scorpions, I'm told are good, but out of my price range so I can't say one way or the other.

I personally don't care for EFlight's or Rimfires... even though I know some people like them, myself I think they are overrated and heavy for the power they provide. While I do have one Turnigy... it will be the last unless they change their QC a lot. The people that recommend Turnigy are only doing it based on price alone which I don't think is ever a good practice.

Or the Omega 72g since it was designed for this. I fly an omega 72 with a 12X6 and I have unlimited vertical.

Omega 72g + 11X5.5 prop + Hyperion 1300 mAh pack = 4.5 minutes of pure magic.

How much vertical do you have? I didn't get much with an 11X5.5...

The only issue with the Omega 72 and a 12x6 is dependant on your altitude where you live/fly ...

Lower altitudes where the air is thicker and/or warmer temps will have to have cooling runs... higher altitudes and/or cooler temps areas there are few problems... Using a 11x5.5 removes that restriction... on the otherhand... those at higher altitudes will want the 12x6 in order to get the vert performance since they are also having to "fight" thinner air.

I have had both the hacker and the omega on my plane and I like the omega much better.
I'm using the gen ace 1550's.
With the APC 11.5/5 I'm measuring 28 amps at 10 .3 volts. I'm using an astro volt/amp meter.
My esc is the hobbywing pentium.
The Hacker use to squeal with a apc 12/6 prop. I changed the prop to an 11.5/5. and that ended that.
The omega seem to fit the cowl better and is also lighter.
For 40 dollars you really can't beat the omega

all of my hacker motors pull way more then the advertised rating, and I have not had a problem, Same with my motrolfly, in my experiance the omegas offer good power, I have just had problems with durability.
