just wanted to know if there was a motor out there that would work good in the trex 600 that would run on 6s lipo and cost under a 100 bucks? i'm still learning to fly so that's why I want to get a cheap motor for now. then upgrade latter on when I get better at flying. thanks for all your help

Based on your comments, what's wrong with the stock motor that COMES with the 600?

Not under $100, but a monster motor on 6S. Will take you far.

thats a good cheap motor.

you will have to cut the frames to make it fit like you have to do for the scorpion motor's to fit.

Who cares... its just money...

I seen the motor on hobbyking for the 600 but if I bought it and had a bearing go out in it would I be able to get new bearings from any of the online shops here in the states? and be able to fix the motor if a bearing went out or the shaft got bent?

that i am not sure of but for the cost you could order a backup. but so long as you drop some oil in every half a dozen flights or so you should be ok.

I have been eyeballing the motor on hobby king and have been thinking about ordering the motor to run on 6s and the motor to run on a 8s lipo setup, just in case I want more power than the 6s setup will provide. so I might have to order the motors that I want from hobby king and give them a try. I would only be out like 30 buck a motor if I don't like them. I guess they would be worth a try at least.

Just ordered the t600-1100 motor from hobbyking and paid for the ems shipping so well see how the quality of the motor is when I get it. latter on when I get the heli up and running I might order the 1400kv motor from them and see what an 8s setup can do.

Also, just a heads up, I realize you already bought the Turnigy, but I picked up a like new 600M motor for around $50 when I was looking for one just by posting in the "wanted to buy" section here. I had 5 responses within 24 hours.

I don't think any cutting of the frame is necessary with it either and its a good motor.
