Hello, can anyone help w/ a GWS 40mm DF & Feigao 12x30 combo-is this possible? I am planning a twin engine model & would appreciate any suggestions.

Many thanks,

I run the 28 turn Feigao 12mm motor in the EDF40 and it flew fine and had good speed (50-55mph). I also had the 25 turn 12mm motor in one and it performed excellent and beyond popular belief it did not over heat in the 40mm fan. Keven64 has that motor now as I sent it to him several months back. So if you want performance get the 25 turn Feigao for the EDF40 and use one of the GWS heatsinks on it for longevity.

Many thanks AirX & 68STrat-DFAlpha. Sounds like the 25 turn w/ heat sink is the way to go.

Best wishes,
Dale
