Is that the M100 motor that came with my Li'l Hornet?


I just picked an MM Li'l Hornet and thought the motor that came with it wasn't supposed to be worth using. In fact I had read on another post that the M100 was the way to go, but according to a few pictures I found, the M100 looks just like the one that was included with the kit. What's going on?

Hello The Motors are identical physically and are both made by Johnson (all rise) The M-100 is a milder wind and uses less current. Best Regards

Just to add to what Bleriot said, the motor that comes with the Hornet is worth using. It just won't last very long on 7 NiMH's (which is what you need to fly the plane well). The M100 is very comfortable on either 7 Nicad's or 8 NiMH's, and will fly your Hornet really well. Those inexpensive Maxell 700's that someone is selling over on the For Sale forum work particularly well.
