I. Sky Surfer Motors

Sky Surfer Motors by Forum Members:

Below is a listing of all the motors that people from the Sky Surfer/Bixler Forum have used or suggested to use on the SkyS/Bixler planes.

1. Turnigy 2627 Brushless Outrunner Motor 4200kv at $9.99
a. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=8144
2. Turnigy 2627 Brushless Outrunner 3800kv at $9.97
a. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=8143
3. MicroDan 2505-2535Kv Outrunner with a 6x4 prop and use your 40A ESC.

4. This is the only inrunner motor upgrade I would do. It is virtually the same as the Turnigy B2835-16 2200 we were referring to from Hobby King.

5. Hobby King has been out of the 2835-2200's , 6X4E Prop & HK 25-30A ESC

6. Turnigty 2835 2700 kv on 3 cell and 6x4 and 6x3 prop. Flew like a rocket but got way too hot.

7. 2835-3900KV brushless inrunner motor.
a. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=4200
8. E-Flite 6 series 2000kv inrunner ($59.99), 3 cell and 6x4 prop. Love this motor.

9. This motor has plenty of power and IMO is ideal for this plane.
a. http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo...7&productname=
10. That is what is in mine and that was the best $14 I have spent in a long time. More than enough power.
a. http://www.valuehobby.com/product_de...73&item_id=585
11. I bought the super mega jet v2 with a 50 amp esc to use as an upgrade motor for this plane. The stock BL motor is more than enough HP for this plane. If you got a brushed motor, then go ahead and put the V2 in right now. AJ

12. I'm running a 2212 2200kv motor from rctimer with a Turnigy 30amp Plush ESC and 2200 Lipo. It seems to be a great combination!
a. http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo...6&productname=
13. I'm going to try the Turnigy 2836-2350kv. It's a bit heavy but I'm thinking the extra power will be good.
a. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=7993
14. For FPV flying, I like the E-Flite Six series inrunners. 2200kv or 2700kv.
a. http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=EFLM2005
b. http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=EFLM2000
15. This is the replacement that I use with a 6X4 and 25amp ESC.
a. http://www.dealextreme.com/p/a2208-1...irplanes-13561
16. If you don't mind tearing up the sky and somewhat shorter flying time, you could use THIS one.
a. http://www.himodel.com/electric/HiMo...t_B2835-C.html
17. If you want HIGH efficiency, even higher speed with ~ the same flight times as a stock motor get THIS one if your cash flow will allow it.
b. http://www.gobrushless.com/shop/inde...=MD2505-C-2535
In either case, please use a 40A ESC.
18. Once you get around the block a few times then you may want to upgrade to a 350-500 watt motor to tear the sky up with.
