Ya I'm still waiting for the align 420 I bought from a guy here on RR classifieds. If its not here tomorrow I think a paypal dispute will be in order. Its probably the mail though I have never had a problem with a seller here. If I dont try tomorrow it will have to wait till next week. I acually have to go to work for 4 days

Here is a little motor that should make the Blade 400 rip

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/...?idProduct=6316

you will have to buy a new pinion BC the stock one is 2.3mmm and this has 3.17 shaft. I would use the Ikarus 10T for the ECO 8.

Smokin
He did respond last Friday to an email saying I should have it first of this week but were at 14 days now. Too long to ship, I could have had one from china on a barge

I am eagerly awaiting a report

Well another day no motor ? I bought another stock motor today so it will fly again.

I guess I wont buy from XXXXXXX#1 in the RR classifieds again.
14 days is way too long from time of payment. I'm a little disappointed but still hope it was a mail deliver issue as opposed to a rip off! He seemed like an OK dude??

I tried the jgf 3450, but it didn't seem to have the power that the stock motor has. I tried it with a 9t and a 10t, but I was hoping for a little more torque. I have been looking at the tonic-x Z10A 3700kv from helidirect. I have been reading of guys running the Z20A in their 550s, and their saying they are cool running and plenty of torque. I'm hoping the Z10 would be just as effective for the 400.

Talegunner,

How`s it going? I finally flew my B400 W/ scorpion motor(HKII 2221-8).I`m useing 11T pinion from align. I skipped useing the stock esc and install a scorpion 30amp esc(sw30a). Motor has a lot of torque and I had to increase gain from 65 to 70 to stop the tail from kicking out on a hard punch. I was only able to fly it in a tight area but did tic-tocs, pyro-flips, & flips. I can`t wait to get it out and really rip it up. This is a nice combo w/ grips flipped and 100-97-93-97-100 stunt T-curve. The weight has gone up to 1lb. 11.4oz. I`m planning on trying a HK2213-14 in my other B400. It is rated at 32amps so I will see how that one is w/ stock esc.

whirlydude,

To get the power you would need to use a 11T or 12T pinion W/ that JGF motor. I have never use that motor but from doing caculation those should be the pinions that would help.

When I was using the JGF motor with the 10t my esc was a little warmer than usual. It was not hot by any means, but that's when I stuck in the 9t, and things went back to normal. I ordered out an 11t today, so I'll give it a try. Thanks, IFHELI

Sorry for taking so long on reporting back....

All I can say are great things about the Hk2221-8. The motor and esc are running cool.I installed a SW45A esc from scorpion in place of the 30A and switched to 12T pinion and this bird rocks now... I never did try the HK2213-14 because my LHS forgot to order it for me so I just bought another HK2221-8 W/ SW45A esc for the other B400. The only problem with the new batch of motors is with the bolt hole spacing. It is wider so you have to slot the motor mount holes to accept the motor.

I estimate that on full charge battery,the 12T does raise the headspeed up near 3495 and 11t gives a nice headspeed near 3200.

I`m useing the align pinions so I had to shim the motor up about 1.5mm and drill a slight taper into back side of pinions to get pinion/ main gear to line up right. Otherwise I would have had to shim motor 2mm. I`m hoping to try some of the pinions from innov8tivedesigns to see if I can take out my shims.

The weight for my B400s is now near 1 lb. 12 oz. Now I just hope the metal parts come out soon.

Anyone else try a different motor?

I was wondering the difference between the stock align motor and blade stock motor. Are they about the same or does the align motor have more punch to it? More punch = less flight time?
