Default Reflection preformance with stock motor

I'm considering getting a FO reflection bipe and realy don't want to pay for a rimfire unless I need it to hover easyly. Can anyone tell me about the reflection's preformance with the stock motor

Default RE: Reflection preformance with stock motor

To tell you the truth, I've never even talked to someone who used the stock motor lol. It should perform fine, I beleive the guys at my LHS told me it should hover at about 2/3 to 3/4 throttle and pull out alright. Just remember, if you fly with a 3S lipo, which you should, that motor should only last about 50 flights or so... The rimfire will last much longer, which is why I went with it, I figured in the long run I'd end up with it anyways, so I figured I'd actually save 30 bucks for not buying the brushed ESC, it should work well enough though. Actually, now that I think of it, I have 3 motor/gearbox/prop saver/prop sets for FOs laying around, perhaps after the motor does go on ya, I'll sell them to you cheap, lol.

On my Flatana, it took full throttle to hover, and it's lighter than the Reflection. Go Brushless, you won't regret it.
