Powerplant for the Yak55 on order!

While I build my Yak55 from HK, I thought that I'd better get a decent motor for it.

Normally, a 2lb. plane on sport could be run by a RCT1120Kv motor, but I am wanting a bit more out of this plane. The RCT3536-6 (1250Kv, 500W) motor seems to be the ticket!

Pix of the motor below. The unit is ~$18 shipped. 102g, 500W max. I plan on running either a MAS 10x7x3 or 11x7x3 with this plane. Somewhere in the 390 to 420W WOT is what I am shooting for. Should be fun!!! My ESC will be a Turnigy 45A/55Ap unit from HK. We put a 30A on a buddies plane with the 1120 and a 9x7x3 MAS prop and WOW! It hauls. So, this should do very well also.
