Default Sailplane motor

I have a 100in pod and boom glider that is too narrow to fit a 35mm motor it's about 33 mm I don't think a 28x36 will have enough power hk had a low kv inrunner that would of worked but are out of stock don't want to spend a fortune does anyone know a motor that would work

What size prop you want to turn? There are two choices from HK, imho. Either gliderdrive 3.5/960 if you are using a 12-6 (max) or the 4.6/840 with a 14-8 (max). Now, will they fit? Good question. I have the 3.5/960 in a 2.1 M glider. With a 45a esc (3s2200) I get vertical climb outs with a 12-6. The price of either one is a great price, compared to the MVVS equivalent motors. Otherwise there is an AXI (28mm) motor that could work but it is around 100 USD. I'll look it up if you are interested. Let me know.
