New Product

XPower XC2803/52 : a new F3P motor


A new F3P motor is available.

You can find it here:

The weight of the XPower XC2803/52 is 16.5g against 19.5gr for an Axi 2203/52.
You can win some grams if you replace the steel shaft with a carbon shaft.
Below 27watts, the tractive efforts of the XC2803/52 and the Axi 2203/52 are alike.
You can see here a topic which compared the Axi 2203/46 and the XC2803/52 about the power used:

Any questions ?

Best Regards,
Nicolas PIETU

Any one flying this motor? My local hobby store is looking at them and would like to know if they should carry them.

Topmodels is selling them for $38 US. The $55 price at Skipmiller seems a little high.

That's probably because the exchange rate differences and/or shipping overseas!

Wow this motor came out lighter than my park 250 !

I think currently skipmiller doesn't import the new XC2803/52 np replica (red color).
This link is about the old C2803/52 (gray color ).
Maybe skipmiller will import some Topmodel product (satrun evolution, motor...) on November.

My mercury evolution with a XC2803/52 np replica. 99gr without battery. I use to trim the torque some part of fuel lines between the motor and the motor mounts.
