What's this I hear about being able to use the motor out of a CD ROM drive?
Are they any good? What size, weight, type of aircraft would this be good for?
Are they running a 5v rated motor on 6 or 7 v?
I know so many questions but this e-stuff is all new to me. What % nitro do you run?

Hi for sme good info on Cd motors check out this link.
Also rcgroups.com has many pages on this topic in the fourms.
People are using them on small parkflyer planes swinging 7-10" props. I have read of stock cd motors parts being able to produce up to 15oz of thrust. Zebra hobbies also sells cd parts. The cans and stators are easy to come by from any old broken cd drives wich most computer strores are willing to give away. The magnets are the important part to buy. The stock ring magnets in any of the cans that I have ever tried will barely swing a 7" prop and are just strong enough to let the esc accelerate the motor. They will use the same batterys and esc as any other brushless motor. I have always used 2 and 3 cell lipolys with them.

Here is another option from AC World.....
A local guy has one and its a really nice kit, magnets preinstalled...supposed to be very efficient.
