Default What Is the Smallest Brushless Electric Motor Available?

I have a micro foamie with a brush motor and gear that I would like to convert to a brushless motor, if possible. Is there an micro-sized brushless motor available that someone could suggest? If you happen to know the size and weight specs, could you post them? Thanks in advance for your help.

Welcome to RCU. Do any of these work for you? They are in order of shipping weight, but I see some at 2,3,7,9 grams. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...tSortOrder=asc

Hope this helps you , I'm sure there are plenty more.

I'm using this 0.9 oz motor (brushless) http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the...lectric/Detail
on my 9 oz flat profile foamy with 32" wingspan. It's surprosing how much power this tiny thing has. Swinging an 8" x 4 E prop. Since it's a 1300 kv motor, the prop can be mounted directly on the motor shaft, no need for gear box.
