Hey thanks for the info. Sorry about your motor. I guess I will try a 6x6 graupner.


You need to ship that motor back to Mega. I'm not sure of the details, but someone will chime in and tell you the correct shipping info and procedure.

If rebuilding it, consider other windings if you can change cell count.
You will increase power and robustness.

My 16/40/1.5RCE just got rebuilt into 16/40/2 F5D CE 100K

I look forward to 6S, and 7S testing in next couple of months....maybe 12-20+ props on each cell count. I need low priced quality cells to put in series.

Even though I went for 100K bearing upgrade, Mopar went for Boca Ceramic Hybrid option from Mega (oiled).

I'm looking at building some kind of hot liner so maybe have it built into something for that? Or maybe get one of the Mach fans and put it into a habu 2 or something...? Im onto the 36+ mm stuff for the strykers and funjets. Who do I contact to send it in?

Thanks!

I've thought about some new 65C batts in the 2600 mah range might do it. I don't want to go bigger with the prop as I can hear the motor/battery is at it's max rpm when full battery and then tapers as it gets used up.

Well take a look at post 5865 for some pics of how the heat treatment / paint can turn out... I'm still impressed.

Is this an 'oops wrong thread' post?

Maybe for the DF?

Can someone please suggest how to place the aurora 9 channel Rx antenna in the FJ ?
I was going to install the Rx in the nose and run the antenna down the length of the fuse but the manual states to keep away from batteries.

Any chance you can put the rx in the nose but run the antenna externally? I know the Hitec rx's have a slightly wierd antenna so it might cause probs.

IF you're struggling to come up with a solution, stick it where you were going to but do a few range tests. MPX advise their antennas are at 90 degrees to each other, which is virtually impossible in all of my planes, but I haven't had a prob when I don't do it like they advise.

I could possibly do that. It may be the only option. Hopefully someone else here uses the 9ch Hitec Rx in their FJ.

Might not help with your 9 channel question, but i never had a problem with my 7 channel antennas being right beside the batteries, in several planes including my f/j
