OUCH! Thanks Chad. Guess I am going to have to spring for a new Axi motor for my shocky!

Actually I did buy the other motors for a couple of 3-DX foamies which are 36" span so I should have figured they would be too big for this little shocky!

I will contact Bryan Hewett and see if he has any of the ones you recommend!

I was told though that the Castle Creations 10 would be enough controller for these motors. So what do you recommend for these ones then, a 25 amp controller?

Thanks again!

You can get by with a 10 amp controller on the 2212 Axi, but there is potential depending on the wind, prop and number of cells to go over that.

You should get a watt meter so you can check what your actual draw is to avoid hurting anything, they are $50 or dollars well spent. This way you can watch your draw while you slowly ramp up power on a new setup and stop if you start to exceed the limits. If you start doing any experimenting its a must. MotoCalc is also a good way to get a rough guess start, but with the rapid dumping of new products to the market it cant keep up and will often times not have the setup in the database that you are trying to predict.

The 2212 will haul the mail on the 36" span 3Dx type airframes....up around 12-13 ish oz. Go with a 1050 or so battery size. I dont have anything in that range, all my electric stuff is the 2204 size, and then jumps to the Plettenberg Xtra 25-13 which spins a 19x12 prop and draws close to 70 amps

Another couple of motor choices are the Gobrushless motors on three Apogee cells. Very light and will pull out of trouble vertically very well. Another is the Himax 2808 Outrunner on two cells. Equivallent to the Axi but a little cheaper. Another good tool is the computer cable to program the CC10 through your computer. Also any updates can be programmed into your controller through their website. This Pogo has a Gobrushless motor in it and lifts off vertically with no lack of poop.

My setup is serving me real well. Fully 3D capable platform. All up weight of 295 gram. Hovers at 1/3 throttle.

- 2 cell, 700 mAh Kokam Li-Po
- Pheonix 10 ESC
- 4x Hitec HS-55 servos (9gram)
- Hitec feather receiver
- AXI 2208/34
- GWS 10x4.7 prop

For connectors, I used the Deans Micro Polarized. Perfect.

You can also check out this thread for foam plane stuff. This one is mine:

Also Gary, I am pretty much done with this foamy. Snow is gone. But I still want a decent electric to toss around out front the house. I would like something a bit bigger and a bit classier for that. If you are interested it may be possible to talk me into a trade of my AXI 2208/34 for your AXI 2212/34. Just send me a PM.
