Prop: MA electric wood 12x8
Amps: 32.4 full (volts drop to 6.7)
Watts 214 w input at full throttle
Conversion from stock design with Master motor and gearbox to Axi during construction. Flies really well, tends to climb at 50-60 degress on full throtlle, need more down thrust (currently at 2 deg). Idles around the sky without loosing height at approx 6.5 amp draw. Flight times with three or four touch and goes and the rest lazy flight 29 mins measured

Comments: A nice powerful setup that's more than enough for a stick-and-tissue model designed for rubber power. Just over 1:1 thrust (maybe 16 oz.), will cruise easily at 1/2 throttle, 10-11-minute flights. Night-and-day improvement over IPS power system previously installed.

For those of you that have RAZOR RZ-400/350 motors then, here's another way to secure your motor in the GWS EPS-300/350 gearbox. The O-Ring is available from HOME DEPOT and improves the side loads and reduces the stress on the front attaching hex motor screws!
For those of you that have removed the motor from the gearbox several times you may have notice that the thread on the motor front case my have enlarged or a slightly enlarged that those screws tend to come out at the most unlikely time such as in-flight!
I used plumbers tape (White Flexable and stretchy) with great success. I think they call it TEFLON TAPE? I cut a small strip and wrap it around the hex screw and then, screw it into the motor which acts like Loc Tie but, with much safer conditions!
She flew for a short 8 minute and 19 second flight during lunch time at the Space Center and the motor/gearbox stayed in one piece finally and the landing was super smooth!
