Depend on how much money you wan to spend and what type of flying you plan on doing.

Hobby Lobby sell a affordable Phasor 3-30 brushless for sport flying.

But there is MEGA, Hackers and all sort of brusless.

PM me if you are interested in a Phasor. I have one for sale.

It's not the fall that kills....

I do a lot of quite hard climbing with mine and a little inverted hovering too. i recently switched over to 10 cells but have since burned out a few decent 540 class motors To be totally honest with you i would be quite happy sticking with the brushed motors if i could find one that coped ok with the increase in volts.

what the question meant (my fault for not putting it clearly) how do you decipher the numbers what do they relate to and what effect this has on the choice.

help would be greatly appreciated on this also if anyone is running a good brushed setup on 10 cells could you please let me know hat you have (motor & pinion).

cheers.

Hi,

I am running a Hacker B50-11L / 15 tooth pinion with an 80A Pheonix ESC powered by an 8000MAH 3s4p Thunder Power Lipo.

Performance and flight times are amazing, its a big motor and has lots of torque, doesnt show any real sign of getting bogged down and it runs cool. Really happy with it but it is an expensive setup

I tried a few other motors but prefer Hacker

I'm happy with my Mega 22/20/3H - the price is certainly right! It'll have far more power than any brushed motor you've been messing with too

ive been pointed at the huuricane with 14t pinion. im gonna give it a crack just to see as it only costs a fiver.

might even have a real play and try 2 it must be possible.

after that in a week or two when ive saved a few more pennies im gonna either go brushless or mabe look at converting it. anyone know of someone whos converted to ic?

I'll second the Mega 22/20/3H as a good motor for 8 to 10 cells.

I dont think there is enough "structure" to the Eco to handle the vibration from an IC engine - maybe the CF frames would take it but I'm sure the stock frame wouldn't take it! Would be interesting though as the Eco is so light it would have quite an "interesting" power to weight ratio if it did work!

I'm with the brushless guys too. I like to fly my eco cheap and one of mine is stock. No alloy or flash. I use a Twister 09 with a 22 tooth pinion and jeti 40 esc. The twister was cheap and runs really well on 10 cells. The brushless set up is maintenance free and if you are replacing motors regularly then costs alot less over time. I've also used the AXI 2814/10 with the 22 tooth pinion but that works a bit too hard on 10 cells so I tend to fly that on 9. Also a good motor for not much money.

electric chopper nut (bit mad actually)

HEY ROB

your right about the stock frames when i originally built it i was gonna make some stronger cardboard ones.

I have a full ali chasis but i know that wont be strong enough either ill have to find a way to mae a one or 2 piece chasis.

first im gonna try to add 2 650 brushed nmotors see what happens then i think ill give it a bash either going ic or stuffing 2 700 class motors on it.

cheers for all your input everyone

I just read somewhere else where a guy put a Kontroniks 600-18 on his Eco and it rocks. I have had mine for almost 4 years and Im considering doing the same with mine.

Fly it like its a rental...

An Astro 020 won't even hover an ECO 8...it's like too small by a factor of two.
