Running the wires Under the mount looks possible, but will require removing some foam. Post pictures if you do it!
Thanks dude. Hey what size motor hex screws are those?

I changed out my Turnigy 2835 2700kv for the 2835 3900kv. I propped down to a 5x3apc and measured 36amps static. The motor is rated for 40 amps.

About 4 minutes into the first flight the motor blew. I gave it maybe (5 sec) bursts of full throttle.

I have had about 20 flights on that motor but I haven't used it since last summer. I might try another one. It is so much faster than the 2700kv on a 6x4, and it still has great thrust.

When you were running it with the 5x3 prop, how hot did the motor get? Could you hold your fingers on it comfortably or was it too hot to touch? Either your motor was bad or maybe that 40 amp limit is a bit optimistic?

Actually this morning I looked further into it and I think I blew the esc, but I landed it ok, and later that night I plugged a different motor into the esc and tested it, it flew about half power, then the esc smoked.

I am used to an esc just blowing all together, this one was gradual in the fact that I was still able to cintrol my plane and run it on a diffrerent motor for about 2 mins.

I was testing the limits of a turnigy 40amp esc. I believe the 3900kv was pulling 43amps on a fresh battery static.

A 40 amp should have been good....

Can someone point me to anywhere in this thread that talks about how to adjust the stryker to roll cleanly. I've tried adjusting the end-points, throws, etc and this plane still doesnt want to roll clean. - thanks,
john

What do you mean? Like, they aren't very axial? One thing to check is cg. A perfect cg is very important.

That motor should not b e run with that prop.
You should be running a 4.3 graupner prop.
Anything else will kill it.

Turnigy 2835 3900KV

Hi!
I also use the Turnigy 2835 3900KV in my setup. I use a little bit too large prop (6*4e) and it is drawing 54 amps and some 610watts with a 35C 2200/3s battery. Have plenty of perfect flights with this setup but are now going to try the Turnigy 2836 2350 Outrunner as I am more interested in push and accelleration rather than speed on my Stryker. Think it will suite the 6*4 or 6,5*4 really well, but I'll report back after making som static tests later this week.

Here is a video showing how the 2835 3900 setup performs:

I am running that motor 2836 2350 with a 4S setup.
80 amp ESC and 4.7 x 4.2 prop.
I can fly at about 120 mph level flight.
Pushing over 580 watts.

This is my everyday Stryker!
On a 3S setup it is good for 100 mph with a 6X5.5.
But it does get warm.
So, I just leave the 4 inch on and just fly with my friends until they want to go faster!
Every Park 2700 motor Stryker I come across on a 4S setup I leave behind!
