I am currently flying the stock motor.

Since I have a Himax 2015-4200 laying around, I thought I would upgrade...

Anyone using this motor? What amperage ESC is needed?

I am also going to a DD tail motor, so if you are flying that motor, which one are you using on the tail and blade?

And finally, how do I go about using my Futaba radio instead of stock tx? I have seen some "recepies" that didn't work for me...

Thanks a lot for the time!!!

Right now I have a stock dual motor set-up.

I can tell you it is not good enough if you are going to be running that motor as a main. For hovering and basic forward flight it works fine but when you start to push it the tail will not hold.

I have plans of ordering a common brushess tail set up that people use here I am just a little slow getting around to it.

Going to be going for
-Feigao 1208436L 12x30mm Brushless
-Thunderbird-9 Brushless Speed Controller

When I get my tail set up I am going to be switching from an 8t pinion on the main to a 10t.

Got it. So in sum, a good set up with the Himax 2015-4100 is:

MAIN: Himax + 20A ESC
TAIL: Feigao 1208436L 12x30mm Brushless + Thunderbird 9 Brushless Speed Controller

I am going to get the same tail motor...

Whoever gets there first, report back!!

Thanks.
