I've looked thru the old posts and most of the recommendations are no longer available at the retailers....sooo, once again:
Has anyone recently
replaced their motor with a comparable (and cheaper)after market one....I want one that can still use the stock ESC and give comparable flight times and power....prefer to use the existing pinion and no frame mods also....I have found several motors with more power requiring a bigger ESC but I want to stay at the 25A level
the only one I have found so far is the 450DH from HobbyPartz
...it seems to fit the bill
PS the most impressive upgrade I have found with mine is CF blades(I have HS-55s on cyclic, keeping the DS75 on the tail)....those $8 cheapos from Hobbypartz really transform the machine
...I've almost doubled my flight duration to 9+ min of mild 3d on 2200mah 3s and really increased the cyclic rates with the stock motor and 10T pinion....head speed about 2500...amazing how inefficient the stock woodies apparently are...
