    Uses for old speed 400 motor?

    Hi all, I'm new to the whole electric scene, and am enjoying learning about it. I have a CG Tiger 400 NOS kit that came with a generic motor and gearbox. I've already researched and replaced the motor with an outrunner setup, but would like to find a home for the old powerplant, if it's worth messing with. I have some C/L planes that might be okay with it. I looked for something close on MotoCalc in order to get an idea of what I'll need, but can't find anything close. Can somebody put me on the right track Thanks!

    RE: Uses for old speed 400 motor?

    A 10x6 GWS HD on a 6v Speed 400 at 4.09:1, using 3s Lipo, is a good combo for a small parkflyer:

    hi there from Toledo

    Here is what you should do with a speed 400 brush motor:

    Remove the rear end head/brush holder.

    Remove the armature.

    Remove the magnets and put them on your refrigerator.

    Recycle the rest.
