Where to buy Mega 5L motor?

Motocalc recomends a Mega 5L motor for a large plane I'm building. Where can I find information on this motor and who sells it. I've been looking on the net for this motor but I can't find anything on it.

Thanks for your time.

That's an expensive motor.
Probably could do better in a brushless.


The link has all the motor constants and weight, price too. Said $179 on their actual shopping page. Looks like the spec table has the old price.

This page gives you cell count, prop size and airplane weight.

This must be what motocalc was referencing. Does this mean you will have your new large low wing airplane ready.

I have a 22V 6600mah lipoly that might be interesting in the duck!

Thanks for the information guys. I was looking under brushless motors (doh!).

The Duck will be at the DEAF meet with the old Astro 40. I was checking motor options for the new Cherokee. It's coming in at 15-16 pounds. I have an Astro 40 for it and it will fly, but full power efficiency is poor on 29 cells. This Mega shows about the same low/mid power efficiency as the Astro, but has much less losses near the top end of power setting.

The Cherokee will fly at DEAF with the Astro 40 for now. Maybe next year there will be a motor upgrade.
