Best to order the recommended motor, as it fits nicely into the cowl and the battery and propeller combinations have been sorted out.

If you want to use a different motor, look for one that weighs 80-100g, has KV of 1300-1500, can sustain 25-30A, and is OK for 3s and 4s. You'll find that there are only a few that meet the requirements.
Thanks for the info! I tried to contact them again to add the motor, we'll see if they can before it ships, otherwise, i'll find something that works.

MOTROLFLY DM-2810 looks about right.

That should work OK, though it's pretty expensive at $65. Also the KV is a bit low at 1240.

Winter Flying Video

Here's some winter flying at our club field. There's my Ultra in there, about the middle of the video. Several other Polaris variants too.

Ken (Motrolfly) will do custom winds too. I think the motors are well worth the money.

If you have a choice, I'd go for 1500 to 1600 KV. That sort of KV works very nicely with an APC 8x6.

I agree with D66 on the kv. 1500-1600 would seem about perfect. Unfortunately, no one that I'm aware of makes a suitable motor in that range (custom winds aside).

I have used Motrolfly motors and they are nice quality. The DM 2810 should work nice on 4s and an 8 x 6 prop.

I'm really happy with the microdan 2510-1300 sporting a MAS 8x6 3 blade on 3S and 4S. weighs 58 grams. He offers a 1600 kv on the same frame, you would need to contact him to see if it would work. his motors are conservatively spec-ed, they will usually go much farther! Dan is a great guy, he will fix them for free if you crash, just send return postage along with your broken motor. I have also burned up a few pushing to 800 watts and Dan was nice enough to rewind...

IMHO they are the Ferrari of RC motors and come with the best guarantee
not to be had for chinese prices though!

Microdan is another great motor.

Is that a non-electric 3 blade prop?

It's a Master Airscrew prop.

My understanding is that they can be used for either IC or electric but Ive only used them for the latter.

Speaking of Master Airscrew, we are now stocking the 8 x 6 three bladed props. You can find them in our Accessory section.
