I have got an original Piccolo with all stock components. The main rotor motor, and tail motor are also stock. My batteries are shot and I would like to upgrade the main motor and tail motor. My question is: What main motor and tail motor combo should I use which will work with my piccoboard, and also what batteries and charger would work best with that combo? I don't know much about motor and battery stuff. I will need to buy a new charger because the one I have charges at either 1 amp or 4 amps and I think that is too much. I currently am using 7 cell 250 mAh Sanyo batteries and a friend said my charger is way too much. (HobbyTown USA sold me the batteries and charger combo) Anyways, I thank you in advance for any help.

Also, is brushless a good idea?

The brushed setup my brother and I used on our old piccolos was the G-310 tuning main motor and the GWS EDP-50 high authority tail motor -

Yes - Your charger is probably too high ampherage for those little batteries - I never had any good luck with Nickel cell batteries on the Piccolo - Just too heavy - Go with lipos - For a cheap battery/charger combo I think the Lipo batts & charger for the E-flite Blade CX would work well for the Piccolo -

DarkHorse1 has a lot of knowledge about the Piccolos and has a lot of info on his website - http://dhrc.rchomepage.com/tips.htm
