Default 65cc Rimfire or C80-80 Turnigy

Hi,

I have a new 50cc sized Sbach and need an electric motor and dont' want to spend more than $240. So far, I'm looking at the Turnigy C80-80 and the Rimfire 65cc.

Anyone have any info on these two or how they compare? Or, another motor in the same price range?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hi,

To replace 50cc gaz engine, Turnigy have developped the RotoMax 50cc electric motor...

It is lighter than the Turnigy CA-80-80.

For this motor, I advice you to use this ESC...

You can found this items in USA warehouse.
