Thanks for the suggestions.

Looks like I will be spending a few more hours locked away in the shed!

Yes, it is a very exciting ride !

Maybe I need to transfer the powertrain to a different plane.

Can you suggest a suitable model?

Thanks

It is good that you have not built the wing yet because you can incorporate the extra esc wiring into the panel before joining.

Good Luck

Since my original post I have fitted a pair of 1050kv motors and individual 30 amp speed controllers. The two motors and two speed controllers cost 35 in total from ebay.
The motors are producing so much power that I have had to build ply boxes within the foam wings to contain them.
I think that I have now reached the maximum performance that the wings can cope with.
Maybe I need to look for a stronger model now!

Thanks for the help. As with most things RC there is no definitive answer, but lots of good suggestions. As stated, it all depends on what sort of model I require as to what motor configuration I use.
Plenty to do and experiment with.
Once again, many thanks.

Thanks for the prompt reply.
Are the bell type motors as powerful as a 7.2 speed 400 brushed motor?

I have been flying my twinstar on 11.1v lipo's with 7.2v speed 400 motors. The performance is good.
As always, we demand more from our models and I was wondering if a switch to brushless motors would improve the performance even more and less destructive to the motors.
Would I need two becs?
Can I buy a replacement wing to avoid digging out the wing for the rewiring?
What motors would you suggest?

Thanks
