I GOT A FEW SUGGESTIONS, I NORMALLY DONT RECOMMEND HOBBYKING STUFF ANYMORE SINCE IT REALLY ISN'T THE CHEAPEST WHEN YOU CONSIDER SHIPPING, RELIABILITY, AND SERVICE (MOSTLY SHIPPING).

http://www.altitudehobbies.com/brush...power-25-equiv

THAT IS MY RECOMMENDATION, IT WILL GIVE A BIT LESS POWER THAN A HACKER, BUT THERE'S A REASON THEM HACKERS ARE EXPENSIVE.

*ahem.*

The Altitude motor is same weight and size, but a bit less power... but if you don't want to get a good motor like a hacker you'll have to live with it. I know Altitude is releasing a better-quality motor line that is a bit more expensive (about 1/2 Hacker) that is on par in quality. I'd recommend that if they were out. I'll check with Garret.

Maybe 20-30 watts... about 10%. You could, of course, get a bigger motor, but then you'd have a bit more amp draw and weight.

Dan, a guy donated it to me for free for world championships. It is below his skill level now, and he was being extremely generous. It is awesome even though the wing is repaired. I will post a picture in a sec.

I am THE ONLY ONE HERE WHO HAS A 51 SLICK AND I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND ANYTHING BUT THE MOTROLFLY 3615-750K IT IS 98 SHIPPED BUT THE MOST EFFICIENT AND POWERFUL MOTOR OUT THERE. SAVE UP FOR THIS ONE AND NOTHING ELSE IT IS WAY WORTH IT YOU WONT REGRET IT!
