BP Hobbies

I'm looking at a BP A4120-7 motor. They claim it similar to an AXI 4120/14. One costs about $65 the other, gulp about $150 with mounting plate.

Any good or bads words about BP?

I could also order direct from United Hobbies. This guy get mixed reviews. They have a nice looking bigger motor for about $45. There are so many ways to cheat on a motor like magnet quality that I'm a bit paranoid.

I have a couple of the 3520's; they are well documented in this forum and they are good motors. I have a UH Hextronic equiv. and it is lighter and stronger so generally better. They are probably not as good as an AXI, but they are much cheaper and work well, so I wouldn't hesitate. Some info on the bigger motors can be found in the nitro conversion forum, too. UH is getting quite a following with the budget conscious.

BP Hobbies, formerly known as "Balsa Pro", is an old and reputable company. I have ordered from them many times over the years. Sometimes, they have the best prices for something I need, like replacement part for 100W class gearboxes, small C-clips, etc. Their carbon tubing is the best money can buy! Not pultruded crap, which easily splits along the uni-directional fibers, but tubes rolled from a two-directional carbon cloth.

BP rules!
