Welcome to RCGroups and the Micro Forum. Please look in the "Micro Threads Index" at the top of this forum. In there you will find a section just on Micro BL motors. There are several threads worth perusing referenced in that section.

The answer is 3.5g and not quite available yet from Uttam and his father, but soon in the next couple of months.

Thanks all for the answers and advice. I started with the "Index" and did a search of past threads, very educational, but it appears many of you "roll your own" when it comes to the micro brushless. The Feigao looks like the ticket for my application. Couple of questions:

1. Recommended speed controller?

2. Anyone run this baby on direct drive? Thought as to prop and expected thrust?

Just a correction. The Fiego at 10.5g is not the smallest. The Mini Disc BL from Bob Selman Designs is currently shipping and is 7.7g. The 3.55g Micro Midget from Uttam and his father will soon be shipping and will then be the lightest. I have one of each. The Fiego is undoubtedly a fine motor. But, it is not the smallest nor lightest commercially available BL motor.

I think there are some tests of the Fiego in the Power Systems forum,and maybe some on Balsa Products site (or coming soon). It's hard to go wrong with the Castle Creations Phoenix 10 controller, although there are Asian BL controllers showing up now too. Have fun. The new Fiego looks like a neat motor.
