I'm not having any luck with Heads Up RC on the motors or mounts. I was looking for the recommended 2410-12t motors and aluminum mounts. Anywhere else I can look?

This mount and motor should be acceptable alternatives if the stock stick mount is used.

Both are listed as in stock

Ken, about what amp controllers? 20A? Or should I go 30A just in case they get hot? And yes, it looks like both are still in stock! I should get an order in tonight. I wonder if I should get servos now as well? I'll probably get the reciever locally. This 2.4 Spektrum I bought is all new to me. I may need help from my LHS.

How do you use that adapter on that motor? Does the flat mount come off the motor and the adapter clamp to the back of the motor?

I used the older motors on my CL-415 and a pair of 12 Amp ESCs . If I remember right my motors each drew around 8 amps when fitted with 9 x 5 propellers. I had more than enough power to fly the CL-415.

The round mount is removed and the new mount is slipped over the tube projecting from the rear of the motor and tightened. Th square part of the motor mount is then slipped over the Motor mounting stick and , after adjusting fo the motor lengt a screw is placed trough the mount into the wooden stick.

Without looking at the specs again, I thought that motor pulled 14amps. I've never used that type of motor before, but it makes sense to mount it either way depending on the situation and mount.

Unfortunately the specs only state the maximum amps that can be drawn before the motor is damaged. They do not state the Amps drawn with a particular propeller and battery pack. Maybe someone has carried out propeller tests using this motor.

I won't be able to fly it until spring so I'll wait for a while. Hope it is just out of stock and not discontinued.

I bit the bullet last night and ordered the motors and 20amp controllers as well as servos and props. Now all I have to do is wait for the China Express to show up and deliver my parts!

I have just purchase the following items for testing. I want to know if this motor is suitable for replacing my current motors that are no longer available.If they are then I will buy several for spares.

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=18546

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=2161

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=3613 This ESC has a burst current of 15 Amps.

The items will take about two weeks to arrive at my home and once i test them I will post the results.

The wet season has arrived and the local billabongs (ponds) are quickly filling with water, so I do not want any delays during the limited time of our wet season.
