This is one plane where brushless are a waste IMHO. Others will strongly disagree.

The SK400XT is a nice choice and currently on sale for only $18. This is what I use on my TSII and it has plenty of power. A few others have used that motor as well. The BP 21 (aka Tower Pro BM2408-21) motors are also a good and cheap choice, see Doubletap's post for mounting example. This one will draw a bit more power than the SK400XT but can also provide a more thrust and speed. I'm not sure the TSII needs the extra thrust unless you're hauling extra cargo, but that's just IMHO. If you want to spend more money on a higher quality motor, the field opens up quite a bit... And of course it depends on what battery you want to use!

Hope that helps!

Hi all

Thanks Hsound very good web site


I think this motor , very cheap, may be a good choice for TS2, with ESC HXT036 and 3S lipo.

I fly the 036 with a P51 warbird, results are very good, small price easy to program with the usb key. (I've never tested the motor)
