Love the cuts and angles, you've got a great eye for it. What kind of flight time does the old mutant nag get with mixed flying on that setup?

Thanks Arcteryxxx. Given the mythology, AC/DC "Highway to Hell" would make a great soundtrack for your next video. 3:29 duration, and lyrics could cut well with video.

If youre gunning for big speeds, you should look to 36mm cans.
Gary from Custom RC Parts makes a killer Stryker motor mount for 36mm MEGA and other motors.

Good luck, and if you need any help, just ask !!!

OK, that motor is the 16-25-F5D if its kv is close to 2400.
Killer motor for lots of fun ................. expect no more than 125-135 mph if propped well on a rigid airframe.

Best prop and battery combo for light weight and loads of fun .............................

22/20/2E is listed at 2100 KV and 0.006 Ohms

So at 16/25 power levels it'll need less throttle control.

*******Downside: extra 40 grams *******

Plus Side: a little more power, Good amount more cooling, and another "Unique" combination...


Since it is a 2 turn, well that too can be made in F5D.


Seriously though: 16/25/2 F5D CE is an awesome motor, I'm not knocking it one bit!!!!!

Now where is that (5) motor pic from Mopar?
No, not the one with 22/70 F5D or the other 22/X motors.
