Default scorpion 3020-12 review

alright guys, after crashing my brand new gp extra 330s due to a poor rimfire 35-30-1250kv that died durring a hover at about 30 feet, I decided that I will never put my plane in that dangar again. I researched on our great forums here for about a week and found that alot of people had similar experiences with the rimfire motors. I did here though that scorpion makes an excelent motor. I was skeptical because the motor I was told to get waid about 5.5 ounces and the rimfire weighed about 3 ounces. Sure enough I had to change the cog of the plane, but once that was dialed in, I threw on a 11x5.5 apc prop on there. I was running about 31amps full throttle. I was able to hover at 1/3 throttle and could fly staight up at about 35mph at full. Run time is also very impressive, I am actually getting better runtime now with the scorpion. I was getting an average of 8 minute witht the rimfire, and now Im getting an average of 15minutes doing hi alpha flite with a 15c 2100 3s greatplanes lipo. Just wanted every one to know the great performance Im getting now. I expect performance to increase even more when I go with the gp yak54. I say this because the yak has more surface area (lower wing loadaing) and the extra 330 is being held together right now with about 8 ounces of epoxy after the crash. Even with the damaged heavy airframe Im using now, performance in unreal. Also thanks to rcdude.com I talked to him for about half an hour and was extremly helpful in my decision. Thanks to every one who helped me aswell in this great online community. Thanks, Spence
