My plane has a brushed motor which is said to be a 380. Battery is 9.6v cell NiMH 1100mA and its a 6x3 folding prop. I need to replace the ESC because the existing one isn't compatible with standard radio gear. What I was wondering, was whether I could go brushless without changing anything else - ie buy a new motor and ESC but keep the existing prop and battery.
I'd describe the model as a low-performance motor glider ("cold liner"?), it weighs around 650g. I wouldn't say no to more power, but to honest it flies fine with the existing rig.
Could anyone recommend a motor / ESC combination to suit, using parts from GC of course.
Thanks, Tony S
