It's by the way the same motor in the Twisted Hobbys Motor/ESC combo.

I'm also using 300 mAh. It's a Desire Power battery without balance tap, the weight of that battery is 15 grams. AUW with battery is 88 grams.

Weight of mine is about 17g so no much difference. Think I may have to get this motor.

Did that motor come with the mount that's in the pic? it looks like it has only three mounting lugs.

I like to point out that I have no experience with this store. So be cautious.
I just used Google to find it.

I just found this thread about them on another forum. Seems they are a drop shipper but people have had good results.

The motor you have now is KV 2500 and I do believe it's too high for enough power with a usable prop size. This is even higher still at KV 2900. Look for a KV somewhere around 2000-2300 to use with a 7x3.5 or a 6x3 for longer flight times. A smaller prop wouldn't do the Mini any good.

Can you suggest a motor on that website stark?

Thanks

The 1800 or 2000kv motors look like good canidates. IMO I have a turnigy 10g 2000kv and the dualsky has more power.

Are you using a 7x3.5 prop now? Try the 6x3 because the high KV (2500) will result in very low efficency with the bigger prop.
The site has a lot of motors and I don't have any experience of most of the brands.
