Mum is the word!
I do like the nose, it was clean,this wing is about as thick so it should work , I can supply the kit and the film for free, I will hook you up on a cc 80 esc and my motor for 165.00 and shipping will be 15.00.
Or you can find a cheaper esc if you want,but it will need to be a decent 80 amp or so.
The motor alone is 95.00,but its not china junk.

is there some feedback from customers on your motors Chris? Do you get them from the factory or do you get pieces and hand assemble them ?

Also, whats the price of the MR-028-40-1000V2SE and 1200V2SE ^^
Oh and, you run them direct drive? (usually inrunners use a gearbox)

Thanks (should list all prices in the PDF !)

They are the made in the factory that used to make motors for medusa motors.
They are a very well known motor, but now I have had some mods done to make them even better.
The 28 40 series is 85.00 the 28 56 series is 95.00

I am only carying the 28 32 1900 the 28 40 2500 and the 28 56 1900 rite
yes you can put gear boxes on them, I can order any of the motors if you have the time to wait.

Well I'm mostly curious at the moment. Thanks for the information. I'm actually waiting on a new work visa for the US so i'd probably order when I get there, makes more sense.

Going through the medusa website now, I didn't know them (yeah, I'm a noob..)

The video interview is pretty cool also btw!

I just added up the components and It would be close to 900.00 to complete.. So short of stripping my existing Zeph I just can't justify the change..

However if someone wants a complete tested and flown airframe I would be willing to build and test it and then send it off to them.... With some compensation for the build..

Cheers,

Cedar

Here are a few pix, it has about the same wing area as the zeph , or even a tad more, it will fly verry precise and fast ,it will retain and hold speed like no other.
I can also help with the motor if you need.

All I ask is that you pay for shipping.

I need a quality build and some attention to the details.

Who might be interested, show me your zeph pix?

Here are a few pix of the wings.
Chris -- Nice interview in the FliteTest video! Congrats!!

Where can I get a prop holder for this 5 mm shaft? I will use a 10x6 graupner propeller.
