Next project motor advice
« on: December 08, 2015, 05:29:13 PM »

Just taken delivery of an aerokits Sea Hornet but I am banned from starting it until the New Year as my wife would like me to join in with Christmas!!

So I thought I would make my spare time useful and at least order the fitting etc.

I am thinking of fitting a 540 brushed motor (tamiya Sport tuned 7.2v) powered by a 2S lipo turning a single 35mm 3 blade prop

any comments on potential performance?

alternatively I could have a foray into brushless technology  {:-{ 

what would be a comparable size/power brushless motor (I have yet to get to grips with this KV stuff)
