For crusing around the sky, I use THIS one. For muscle, I use an APC 8x4 trimmed to just barely miss the fuselage.

30 min epoxy might be slightly better. On pulling the shaft, see about 5 pages back or so and glue in the magnets while you are at it.

BRC HOBBIES delivers only the BM2408-21T and is only 113Watt ( see Tp motors ),
so is a different type BM2409-12T 200W as advised by AJ

I find the tgs 6x5 prop really noisy (must spin a lot faster)... try the 6x4 (which actually has more pitch), much quieter and faster

I think he means BRC Hobbies sells the plane and is the only place to get it in the UK.

Just curious since i like my floater jet so much has anybody seen the wing that axn sells as well on their site . Ive seen it there it looks good with the ability to use 2200 batts like my fj i wanted to give it a shot www.rc-model.cn But i cant find anybody who has it available except a place in malaysia that sells for $38 dollars converted but ships for $80 us dollars which makes it unfeasible. It would be great if they made it of the same material as the floater jet and the ability to hold 3cell 2200 batts and receiver ready like the fj i would definiteley buy one. I tried the wing forum but got no response i figured since weve been to the site some of us may have been interested.

I maiden it yesterday, 1st fly ever in my life and everything went smooth!!! Got about 25min in the air with the 2200mah 3s and when charging only 1850 mah went in so a lot a flight time with this setup !!

Must say I'm quite happy since it's my 1st plane ever.
