I won one yesterday and like to make it really perform, any suggestions for a wild motor/batt's?

Any other mods?

Thanks

Default slow stik rockit

go to aeromicro.com and purchace the gws 400 sp motor and get the highest mah battery you can buy.just do some reinforcement of the wing joint.
stock set up works with 12 x 6 or 12 x 8 prop and retime the motor.i run mine this way with a 9.6 1450 mah from radio shack and it flies for about 10 to 15 minutes of controlled throttle.


hope this helps tom

The Hacker B20-L12-G brushless and its required ESC runs over $200... it will rock, and last a long time.

The GWS EPS-400C ($16) will slightly improve performance, but from what I have read needs 9-10 cells to work effectively. Will it rock? Depends on your expectation, it will be faster than the stock EPS-300.

Hmm, ok, I really do not want to drop a ton into a $30 plane. There is a guy at our field that hovers and torque rolls his!
