700 motor replacement recommendations
Hi guys,

I've been away for awhile flying FPV and planks. So it turns out a buddy of mine burnt out the motor in his FBL 700 a the field last week and now I'm buying it today, bad motor and all. I think he got some filings in it when the pinion came loose the week before the motor went up in smoke. Any way I'm going to need a motor and was wondering if going back to the stock Align motor is a good idea or not. I also see that a guy has a Scorpion 4035-500 for sale in the classifieds and was wondering if that would be a good 3D motor?

I don't really need insane power but would like stock Align power or better.

Thanks duders,

Hey.

The Align 750MX 530Kv is a great motor, with a lot of power available if you want it. So I would suggest this to you.

Or just get the 700MX. It's a superb motor for dirt cheap. The 510 or 530KV versions are still going to be stupid powerful. The 470KV is more sedate but is a really good high-efficiency option and will still be more powerful than even monstrous nitros like the OS 105/YS 120 (tho not by much)....

You're welcome buddy.
I've used all the Align 700MX's, except the 470Kv as it's too tame for me and their all good motors and as said already good value.

Keep us posted on which motor you go for in the end.
