Once burned ( literally ) twice shy. I know you can get a CF RTF from HC but their shipping is almost $50 to my door. I will not be buying any Chinese ARF's
unless I strip them of electronics and replace with a known brand. Anybody know of a good replacement motor for the CG ?
We're spoiled for choice there really. Either of the two RCtimer motors in my previous post will turn it into a rocket with a 6x5e. You can get basically the same motor from Grayson hobby for a few bucks more. Need 30A ECU and 2200mah 3s lipo to balance.
Grayson also have the MicroJet
, which performs almost as well but weighs much less at 34g. 20A esc and ~1800mah lipo
If you prefer less noise, then a Towerpro 2409-12 with a 7x6e works pretty nice. Fairly efficient too. 25A esc and also 2200mah lipo.
Turnigy Plush ESC and HXT900 servo's should keep her from burning up again
