I don't know what motor RJ Gritter was using at ETOC but a good plane for a VPP setup would be and Electrifly Flatouts series plane and Electriflys VPP setup. It comes with motor and a template for the servo cutout. Alls you need is another servo to operate the prop pitch. My only problem with the Flatouts series is the hinging system with the carbon fiber rods and snap hinges. Get rid of it bevel the surfaces and use hinge tape.

The link above is a review on the Electrifly VPP system on rcu.

I bought the VPP setup and found it to be a POS. The servo doesn't have enough to control the prop. any other suggestions?

RJ is flying the MX2, his own design.
Can be purchased at Fancy Foam
http://stores.homestead.com/fancyfoa...h-2/Detail.bok

The VPP setup (and about the only one that really works) is the Mamo Models VPP setup.

He is using the Hacker A20-34S
He uses a 2S setup...some guys use this with a 3S.
