Spitfire motor replacement
Review by Flightime on 15 Jun 2014review stating Spitfire motor replacement
I installed this motor in a UM Spitfire and found that the longer motor added much needed weight in the nose of the plane( helped with the cg position). I wasn't sure if the motor would make a difference in actual power, but it did. So far after a dozen flights, I am certain that this motor is definitely better than the stock motor for the spitfire. I've been using the 200mah 35c micro heli batteries. The plane will do loops with out having to build up speed by descending , it fly's much better overall . The leads on the motor are somewhat long but got them in an out of the way place. I will have to fly it for a while to know if it lasts longer than the stock motor which was about 30 flights. I think with the cg in the right place and a little extra power from the motor and batteries helped the performance of the plane. So far a definite improvement. Horizon should display a photo, I wasn't certain if it came with a pinion gear, which it does.
