Looking for a possible alternative direct replacement to the standard eflite which is expensive and out of stock in the UK. It will be running with a Turnigy plush 40 ESC.Thx.

Suggest you ring BRC hobbies and they will talk it through with you. Might help if you have details like weight of model prop size shaft size etc ready if asked. An eMax motor will cost considerably less than an eflite and are perfectly fine

other equally knowledgeable and helpful dealers exist just suggesting my first choice

It's a PKZ4716 order number. Google that and you should get a hit. Can't post a link as you can't when on a mobile phone.

Standard UK Parkzone Radian motor maybe PKZ4716 or PKZ4416, not sure. Either way it's expensive at over £50 for the original. Hoping there is a cheaper decent alternative I can just buy and fit without having to take it apart and modify.

Thanks, contacted BRC today. They may have an alternative, but it's heavier and more powerful. Waiting on details. Had a look around and maybe the items below could work. I have 2 Radians, so was thinking of buying 2 adapters and maybe 3 motors, so 2 as spares. The adapters are not cheap and from the US, but look good quality. Horizon hobby are waiting on stock of the more expensive Eflite units and all UK suppliers appear to be out of stock. Waiting on a reply from the eBay seller on compatibility and ease of fitting with this motor.
