That depends on the weight of the plane and how much thrust the motor is producing. We would love to help but need some more info.

I recently revieved a kit and I think they build to 11 or so oz , I bought it because my stuff is too big for my shock flyer . I surely will put 100 watts into this one Its 40" span so a bit bigger than a shock flyer and can handle hs55's . I doubt a 2cell 120mah will do much for this plane .

So then it's a ... No. CD ROM motors are not yet hovering 40" planes on 2 packs.

I think he means 1200 mah. I dont think it will preform very well either... A CDR motor puts out like 12 oz tops? And thats with a 8.43 prop....I dont think that will have enough air going over the surfaces while hovering...

Not with a CD ROM motor. Yes with the AXI 2208XX and 2212XX, Razor, Himaxx, Hacker.

Yes you can hover that 37" p[lane on a 1200 mAh 2s pack. I would use a motor that gives no less that 20 oz thrust.

I have to disagree with you Kevin. I have a "double stack" 24mm stator Cd-rom motor that turns a GWS 11x4.7sf 7900rpms on 3s2p 1200 E-techs (17 amps full throttle)for over 30 ounces of thrust ! I currently fly it on a NESail Vermont Belle that weighs 17.5 ounces with batteries and it will hover at less than half throttle. You just have to be more specific on your cd-rom size/turns/wire specification when you say " will it fly on a cd-rom ?" . I believe Kurt (Fishnut) has some really good thrust figures from the GoBrushless 25mm stators stacked up .
