Ok. Thanks
Yes, I have run this motor and it is great for good power on a 10 x 6 or 11 x 5 APC prop.
Gives long run times, but try not to nose in or the shaft may break.

2 cents worth
A third on that one! A narrow hill = very tight band of usable lift.
Hang time does not apply to ceiling fans, light fixtures, overhead door tracks or basketball nets!

There a actual MAAC site for ridge soaring in Westover. Due north face and also a southern face. Its a decent hill.A bit shallow IMO
The day google earth snap its picture the hill had been chard black from a grass fire so it appears very dark.
Dont fly any glow there. the hill is restricted to soaring.You can park at the church but please dont on sunday morning.

SOGGI manages the site
