Hi guys,the first brushless external rotor motor will come in at 20grams and will draw about 5amps unloaded running a 4x4 prop on a 2s1p 340 pack however,if this motor does good in the market(and I'm sure it will at the price we will be asking)there will soon follow a 10gram micro external rotor motor.It will pull about the same amp draw,I have been testing the prototype 10gram motor at 10amp draw with a perfict track record on a 6oz PCW at around 100mph.Any one of these motors will be AWESOME on Brad's(AIR MOVER)great little WindBuster.Have you completed you motor yet Brad?Can't waite to here a flight report.

OK,thats enough for me,this thread is about WindBusters so back on track please.Matt

I don't know about anyone else, but I am very interested in the development of the 10g Little Screamer motor. Matt, please keep us ezoner's posted on the development of this little guy.

Thanks,
Scott

Yes Im very intrested in the cd rom craze too.. and am a avid learner.. I will in time have cdrom motors for these planes.. as a option with the planes.. Im going to test this motor out on this
Racer.. for those who want to learn here is some tricks..
first cut a gws 50 motor in half the bolt pattern matches close enough to the back of a standard 23mm cdrom motor.. what this does for me is allows the use of a metal clip that holds the motor but will allow it to pop out during a bad crash.. these type clips work great for holding the gws50 and if your local electronic store has them try it, this one is a single cell battery clip for a AA battery.. also look at fuse clip holders some are made of thin light metal.. I have fuse clips large enough to hold 300 size motors.. and they have saved me from many chances to bend a motor shaft.. Im going to test a cox 3X1.2 with a gws hyperdrive spinner.. my goal is to get the run time with the vertical.. Im shooting for 3.5amps max draw..
Been very busy so sorry havent had any more input on this thread.. but busy is good.
Thankyou again everyone .

Brad

fantasic looking forward to seeing it fly.. should be a blast on the cdrom motor.. what size batts are you going to use?..I will drive over to your side of town let me know .. I hope to have a working esc then and will bring this plane and the 18in span and the other.. span for you to work on for testing.. Andy will be a big help flying..my planes with cd rom motors.. This green wing was talor made for gws 50 motors for perfomance above average// However .. there are some of us who are trying the next level with these small planes .. I will be detailing all possible motors .. such as the Johnson 250 .. Im also counting on you guys to try a few things yourselfs .. as I will be focusing on cd rom motors(new to me) now that im finished testing the gws50.
I would like to see some raceing with these planes.. There made tough and very very field repairable.. as far as structure...Im looking forward to shareing with all of you .

Will be running kokam1500HD 2s, Might go ahead and throw on my 1100 Tanic 3s just for grins, kind of to see what it takes to rip the wings off this thing. Just have to keep my 5min epoxy handy. Makin some killer motors, looking to get 40000 rpm or so!!!!!

wow 40 k..! Andy has a mono 22 with a much more robust wing then the green wing Racer.. shape is like the 20 mono but the wood type was made for 300H 7.2v motors.. .. his cd rom motor on 1500 2cells should be some major thrills. Im not sure about the wieght of the 1500s but the cd rom motor saves weight on wing loading for sure..Its speeds and airloads on the airframe thats my concern ... induceing tremendous forces .. here is a link for anyone wanting to know air loads on there flying surfaces and what servo's to use.

Here are some numbers

I tried several props and batteries and charted them out. No 40k here, but I'm still very pleased with the results.
