Great Larry,
I think it looks pretty good. I will be very interested to see what you think after you log some flight time with it.

Surely there must be another place you can get that kit from. Guys here have been more than disappointed with the lack of support from WOW.

brushless motors installed


My brushless assy arrivied this morning and the install was a snap, truly plug and play. The cx3 flew with no trim adjustment or pro adjustment, the tail is a little less nervous. lifted straight up to my surprize ! Its still too windy this after noon to fly out side, so tomorrow I will know more. It seems to have more power. when I dial in more HH with channel 5 the tail wags back and forth, no more nervous shake.. back it off to a smooth hover,, to make a long story short , I am glad I bought it and would do so again

Is that how it came? the ESCs and converters in heatshrink tubing as one single element and with ALL the necessary plugs? I mean, you really just needed to plug the 4 plugs in the 4in1 and that was it?

Thanks

Yes, plug and fly. thats it.. piece of cake install. one small thing, each ESC has 3 black wires, and each motor has 3 black wires, it a bit of a guessing game which one gos where! So put 3 of the wires to the motor on the left and the other 3 on the right, the instuctions state which motor should turn the top rotor, and I got it right! then if the motor turns backwards, just reverse any of the 2 wires to the motor , what luck I got it right the first plug in.... smooth hover , quiet, inthe A M I will post a flying test. and a hover battery test What Fun Larry

brushless update


Upon closer inspection, I found the one of the pinions was too close to the other driven gear. Both gears on the brushless are the same diameter and tooth count, but both gears are "taller" so the fit is very important. I needed to move the gear away from the motor just a tad to clear the other driven gear, not having a gear puller i made one.. I used a wire stripper and a battery terminal puller, and it worked just fine, moved the gear just a R C H (.005) the old motor is shown for the photo, Larry

What in the world makes this conversion worth $100?
I like my Aero Nuts motors just fine.
