Maiden flight was great. I stalled it about 10 feet above the water and nosed in. Motor got wet. everything else was corossion X'd.
ESC seems OK, one servo ( which I didnt use Corossion x on ) moves very slowly in one direction. The motor trys to turn and if I spin it with a chicken stick it will run fine. I can control the speed but if I stop it need a flip to get it started.. any options or is it toast??
Suggestion for a cheap replacement?
Thanks for any info..
I have had two Seawinds that I flew with this motor...works GREAT. Has about the same numbers as the Rimfire, but only 17.95. Kv is clamied to be 1000, but not enough extra to matter, even if it actually is 1000Kv.
The oly downside is that it will need some mods to fit the firewall. It is a four bolt motor and not the silly three bolt pattern that Great Planes came up with to try to force people to use their stuff on their kits.
Took me less than an hour to make a firewall adapter out of thin fiberglass sheet....about the same for my first Seawind, when I made a firewall from laminated 1/32 aircraft ply (two layers)
I think the model actually performs better on the same size APC prop instead of the stock GP prop, personally.
