Took her for a flight yesterday .... all good and then motor decided to fail ... but she glided in to a spot landing next to the 'van' !!

Initially I thought it was ESC ... but today on checking - its the motor has shorted internally. All else is fine.

My spare 2826's are all similarly shot on windings ... so have ordered a slightly higher kv motor from Banggood .... 

While waiting - I dragged out a spare motor ... remember the Rarebear Funfighter from Hobby King (actually it was a re-brand) .... it had a 2825 1940kv motor designed for 4S and 5.5x4.5 prop.

After removing the silly 1mm bullets and fitting decent 3mm ... I installed to the F16. Needed drilling clearance hole for the rear shaft ... 

WOW - on 3S with 6x5 prop - F16 tried to rip out of hand .... 

Gave her a reasonable run till my ears said enough ... motor was stone cold.

​​​​​​​Reckon she could even run my 6x6 racing prop ! If I go 4S ... then its 6x4 ...
