This motor in my opinion, is too big, it's a 340watt motor depending on what prop and esc you fit, I had to fill the canopy of my mini skywalker with weights to get cg with a 2208 motor! in the end all the weight in mine folded the wings, so I recommend you look for something smaller/lighter,
Do yourself a favor and forget the mini skywalker and get yourself a bixler1 2 or 3, yes they all cost more but they are all better planes for fpv than the mini skywalker and some ARF are only a few $$ dearer for much better planes...also consider teksumo (which could use this motor as could all the bixlers)
I appreciate your input but unfortunately the Bixler ARF (US Warehouse)has been on back order for at least three month according to the discussion I have read. I also realize that the Skywalker is currently on Backorder(US warehouse), but I am hoping it will be off soon as its not as popular as the Bixler. The second thing that has turned me off is the fact that although the bixler is an incredible plane, it is far from being a compact plane, something you can just throw in the backseat of the car which I am looking for. I have actually scratch built a foam board pusher for FPV 40" wingspan(hasn't been test flown yet) and the Skywalker is more or less my backup FPV plane. Thanks again for your comments.
this motor runs exceptionally well with a 6x4, 6x5, 6x5.5 with a 30amp esc, Ideal for bix1 and b2, bix 3 is very similar in weight as the other bixlr's so it would be ideal... Oh in bix1 and 2 I replaced the carbon tube in the main wing with a solid carbon rod, I have not got the bix3 so I'm not sure if you need to replace the carbon or not, this motor with the above props will put out much more power than the standard motor...
i use this motor with 3s 2200mAh 20C 40/50 ESC hobbyking and 7*35GWS DD, very fast motor, a bit hot but this motor is good
