Sorry, but I don't understand your joke.

DF, I'ld suggest you order enough to fill the first shipping tier. Then just resell them for about $5.

Edit: or the second tier would give you 20 motors with $7 shipping. It would be a unit cost of $3.84.

They appear to be using the tail rotor props.

Yes, but surely not all tail rotor props are the same size.... and the Quad props appear larger than the small tail props...so is there a recommended size to use, for example, with a 6mm motor?

The MCPx Tail rotor.

I've been asking for Thrust data, but no one seems to have any.

I've been planning on building a a thrust meter rig like this one for some time....
But smaller of course.

Flite Test - Measuring Thrust - FLITE TIP (4 min 56 sec)


I want to meter the thrust of ALL my coax heli, it's a simple enough rig for anyone who has a load of motors for testing to build.

Sorry it's OT but, UGNT do you know much about power wheels wit a parental override remote? Feel free to PM me rather than drop it here.

dont listen to voices inside your head. gg (polyurethane) is one of the few heat resistant glues around unlike ca, epoxy, hot glue, and most others. i watched a hot glue plane fall apart right next to me in the hot back seat of a car one day. using hot glue on a motor does not strike me as smart. and gg is 20x-40x lighter than hot glue which is important for planes like this.

Just tinkering here but I think some simple mechanical retracts might be possible?? Still working out some bugs on one of the beta airframes. The parts are very small and had to be laser cut.

Yes!!!! If you get them working to your satisfaction, will you be making them available as separate items?
