sk 6374/170 don't look too bad John

Fill the magnet gaps with epoxy
and replace the bearings (if needed)
"19mm OD x 10mm ID and 5mm Wide"

It's still a cheap price for a 3.2kW motor

Hi john the spit weight is around 9 pounds the motor is a emax bl4030 325kv its producing around 800/900 watts on a 17x10 apc (100 watt per pound rule) But remember this is,nt always necessary with bigger models,the spit is also 1/6 scale, the esc is a turnigy plush 60amp separate 1500 nimh for rx. the batterys are 2x4000 3s in series. Looking at the mick reeves spit 1/6 Span 74 inches. Engine. 10 to 20cc. Weight. 12 lbs it is probably around the weight of my fw190 which flys on the same bl4030 i think if you could keep the weight down there would,nt be a problem or u could go for XYH50-55 580kv Brushless Outrunner both from giant cod what i would do is build the model and get an idea of the auw ps great something for the 190 to dog fight

Very Happy
