    I read about the one in Reno but this is a first on the one in Chicago. Does not look good do think it will survive.

    I do not have a preference all that I would like to do is slow and hang on the prop or 3D flying.

    1000kv on a 13” prop
    1100kv on a 12” prop.

    I will link some motors shortly.

  6. There was a time not long ago when probably 90% of everything bought went through HH or Tower in some way. The last few years have seen a major increase in private on line vendors. And with other major outlets selling r/c related products, just today I saw DJI quads in Walmart. All my purchases are through other outlets and have been for several years. The real wonder to me is how they have lasted this long.
    As a matter of fact, the only thing I have left that is related to Hobbico is all my Futaba gear. Hope it stays around somewhere.

    Have to agree with you when I got into the hobby and many years after that 90 % of my stuff come from them but in the last 10 to 15 years nothing from them except for two O.S. gas motors . So like you said what have they been living off.

    This one right here would work but you would have to run an 11x6 prop. its not going to slow down as well though but will help it wad up tighter in high energy stuff.

    These two will work on a 13" prop. First one is the way I would go as I prefer the bolt on prop adapter but if you want to save some money and don't mind a prop collet then the second one will work just fine.

    I'm getting ready to try on my next one of that plane a 3536 outrunner instead of the 3542 just as I have one on hand. A buddy and I have talked and we feel it will be more than adequate power for this and will save a little weight but I'm not going to recommend it to anyone until I have tried it myself.
