I think you are pretty well at the max performance you can get out of that motor. If you want more, you will need a bigger motor...

Also, a high wing plane like this isnt really made to go "vertical".... that could be part of the problem...

well. It looks like a 10x5 would work out ok with that motor, but I wouldn't go bigger than that, and even thats pushing it a little.. But I say give it a try, assuming you have at least a 20 amp ESC....

No, you just need to stop using such big props on your motors and practise your landings.

While I normally agree with Jürgen, an aluminum motor mount does help out. I used this plane as a beginner and often had prop strikes when I landed using a 7 x 5 prop. After my stock mount broke I replaced it with a homemade aluminum one and using that in addition to a prop saver has made things much more fun. No more bent motor shafts or broken mounts. I do agree about his statement about too big props and motors. The minimag design can only take so much power before you've over done it.

Don't forget that the stock mount was designed for Permax 400 motors with 2.3mm shafts spinning 4.9"x4.3" flexible Günther Props. A new plastic mount is cheaper than a new motor.

That being said, I never had a problem with the stock mount even when going Brushless and using a GWS 8x4" HD.

i just bought a SPEKTRUM DX6i DSM2 2,4 ΤΧ for my MiniMag and other small planes. Do you think it is safe to fly the MiniMag with the AR6100E receiver (Microlite Parkflyer Rx)?
It is a park flyer receiver and it's small size (only 4,4gr) makes me feel unsafe. The description is: ''receiver for most any small electric model from mini profile foamies to 400 class helis'' .
Thanks in advance.

I've been using one for years with no problems. I don't fly so far that it's hard to see the plane though. I like seeing the airplane with out straining my eyes when I fly.

That is a perfect rx for the plane.
