i am wanting to upgrade to a brushless and have heard nothing but good reviews about the axi 2208/20 paired with the cc25a but is this setup possible without the belt drive. i read one review and they said the 18t pinion that i would need with me 3 cell lipo was to short to drive the main and tail gears. i was just curious if anyone has done this or am i going to have to upgrade to belt drive also. this just seems like it would be a problem with any motor in this class if you have to get a new pinion so i am assuming that there is something out there for me. if someone could give me a link i would really apreciate it.

Quick note, go with a cc35 over the 25. Save you the seperate BEC buisness.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

You could go with that motor without needing to antiup on a beltdrive. But if you do make sure to add good bearings into your zoom boom, 4 minimum will help out tail vibes alot. When you go brushless you are really ramping up your rpms throughout the machine. My opinion,,,, if you can afford belt drive do it, you will never look back or regret it. IMHO

I used the AXI 2208/20 on CC P25 and CC P10 for a couple weeks with the geared drive before I switched to belt drive. It works nicely on 3S LiPos with a 17t or 18t pinion (it's just a bit diffcult to fit due to the pinion size). No ballistic performance, but good enough for "aggressive sports flying"

If you want something that is real decent for a real decent price you can also consider the park 400 4200kv, or the justgofly DH400, those are both motors which will easily last you into your 3d days. Cheers

what are some other good motors. at this point i am looking more for run time than raw power. i am still very new to the hobby and would like to be able to go out and not worry about having to buy a few more batterys.

i should've bought a simulator

Hacker, NEU, Mega those would be the other three best ones to use for your setup.

Switching from my 2 previous Himaxx motors, to my axi 2208/20, my run times are great. I had 15 minutes on a 1250mah 3s pack, and i only stopped flying as i was worried about damaging the pack, there was still life left!

I second that.
I used to fly my AXI-powered Zoom with a 3S1P E-Tech 1200 and got between 13 and 15 minutes flight time out of them.
AUW was 483 grams.

Hi there
The CC25 bec is not rated for 4 servo setups, the 35 is. Whizz the cyclic madly about for a while on the CC25, and the bec cooks itself and shuts down. But in flight you never normally go that mad, so it doesnt happen.
