I don't have one in my hot little hands yet, but I understand the CAM series will fold back using the stock spinner.

I think Ill pick one up, only for the reason that Im doing aerial photography and she could use a little more oomph with the added weight.

If you click the link that says black outrunners and scroll down midpage, you will notice that these new motors sorta look like these sold by lightflyrc.com

My Radian Pro has a blue connector on the esc. Can anyone tell me what brand it is? I need to buy some to put on my batteries.

Here are the Picture you wanted of the 4 pin Dean connectors.
the right side is red and the left side is black.
each wire has different color heat shrink. this way match the colors and your done super super easy.

This is likely a dumb question but, do you need a plug for each wing, or does one set connect both?
Also, is it tough to solder the wires to the plugs.

If you buy they come per pair... (one for wing and one for fuse in one bag) so I ordered a pair of red and one pair of black. From lhs. I didn't solder these as my skills suck but a buddy did and he made it look easy.

I think the "motor" problem can be cured with a prop upgrade.

My 2cents, scb28
scb28,

I think you hit the nail on the head..

While there are people who can't get 12 Amps on their stock Radian Pro's...for them I think it might be a good idea to swap out their motors.

For all others...you might want to swap the prop to a Graupner 10x8..or as scb28 has found out. If you want to trade off a little more Amp draw, you might want to try the EMP Scimitar 10x8 - EMP is a bit of a thrust monster.

Well I tried the prop off of my Radian on my pro and it pulls 1 more amp than the stock Radian pro prop does. 14.2A stock pro prop. Radian prop on Pro pulls 15.4amp. I think I will order a 10x8 and an 11x6 and give them a try. I have ran 4 packs thru my Pro and I like the climb rate it is not as good as the Radian but the Pro climbs to a speck in the sky in 40 seconds and a 30 second climb is high enough to look for lift for 5 min.
