The Rimfire 200 is a 47 watt motor. On HK's website, you can select motors by size. Each motor will give the watts generated. Any 50 watt motor will provide enough power. If you also match Kv, that will give you the same speed as the Rimfire 200. However, sometimes the mounting hardware is not a perfect fit. Since the Rimfire 200 is only $24, I'd just buy that and know that it will fit and fly.

I have found the Rimfire motors to be some of the best.

Thanks , I have just placed the order so will see how this little beast performs . Anyone have one of these wings ? Im just looking to stooge around at the local oval . My club is 40min. away but I have a flying bud who comes down and we do some boating and we just got a quad each to mess with as well . Saw one fly down my street the other day ( a bit out there ) . Looked to see who was driving but it must have been a fpv . I was waiting for him to hit some power lines but alas no luck . Cheers and thanks again Mulligan
