Looking through some motors here I was telling you about the other day. A couple Scorpions come to mind.

Scorpion 3032-10 brushless outrunner motor

Not exactly the 3026 I have but close:

50 amp ESC looks a little small, I have a few of those. 80amp High Voltage or 100 ICE is overkill.

I'll keep looking for ESC.

I found two 550 cans and a couple Princess Auto generics too for the Jeep.

Nice! That with a coarse pitch prop should make it go pretty good! It's been so long since I started this project, it would be nice to actually see it go!
My son is going to be excited about the jeep motors too!

Motor mount is done. There is a 5 degree (ish) offset and drop as per the instructions. I made one of the mounting holes slotted so I can adjust it if that is too much offset. I alodined it for a bit of corrosion protection (and to make it look nice of course) I am in the process of sourcing a propeller. The coarsest pitch 3 blade 9 inch I can find is 7, but I can also get a 9x9 2 blade. I will probably get both of these and see what works best.

Sounds like a couple good ones that will be just a wee bit different for adjusting what U like. 7 pitch will launch and lots of top end with the 9 inch. Probably a couple battery choices are applicable for even more prop choices.

I probably have something in an 8 inch pitch in The Tickle Trunk.

Scorpion looks good in there.

Yup, the scorpion sits there like it belongs!! I can't wait to try it out! In the meantime, here is a little sample of what I am doing with it right now.. Still very rough,, lots of touch-ups to do on it yet!

You probably have better props than what I found. 9X7.5E was the only thing that looked interesting. Not a lot of high pitch used for planes unless you are in to pylon or something.

That three blade to get a feel for it then run the 9x9 and see what it will do.
