Just noticed this. I've successfully used eMax GT motors for 3 ic to electric conversions recently. I get then from Totem Hobbies.

My DB DH60 Moth weighs probably about what the Hurricane does and flies well on an Emax GT3526/05 and the kv is 710 rpm/volt. The maximum quoted thrust is 3.3kg and it weighs 265 grams. It turns a 13x6 prop at around 8.9k rpm with a 4S LiPo pack.

You may feel like a little more power than the 550 watts I get but this is the area you should be considering. You could go for 5S rather than 4S for instance.

Hi Geoff,I will be using a 5s lipo,4500 or 5000 30 or 35 c,with a 13x10 prop,as recommended with the overlander thumper motor at 800kv,60w esc.
