Moved to power systems so you will get a better response.

Welcome to WattFlyer! There are a boatload of sites to get good motors from. Here is a good one. I have a few of these Welgard motors and they perform very well.

http://www.graysonhobby.com/catalog/...php?cPath=9_36

Figure out how much you plane is going to weigh and get one that is in that range. Probably something like the GH2217-06.

Good luck to you!

Edit, changed link, misread plane size at first... sorry

oh, and Kv is RPM per volt

Grayson Hobby is a good choice. Also have a look at Heads Up RC.

Please post a link to your plane to help pick out a motor for it.

Thanks,

Frank

It looks like a good sized trainer. Do you have everything else you need such as radio gear, battery, charger speed control, etc?

If not you are going to be spending a bunch of money! Be prepared.

yeah they are not too terribly difficult to figure out.

The best thing you can dois seek out some local help in getting started. A few hands on pointers will go a long way. Plus a local club guy may have a good used radio for sale too.

I would start with a local hobby shop (LHS) and ask about nearby fying fileds or parks and such where folks may meet up.

Ahhhhhhh! You should have said that sooner. I "assumed" you were a beginner! Sorry.

You'll be fine then. This will be a very good step up form the SC. Same stable flight characteristics but adding the element of Ailerons.

I would recommend a Spektrum radio setup for it. Get as much radio as you can afford. You obviously like the hobby enough to move up so you will be around it for a while. A DX6I or a DX7 would be the ticket. I have a DX7 and love it. They are great radios and will grow with you as you grow in the hobby.
