I've got the 3520 560kv BadAss on my GBR50; running a 15x6 on 6S. Plane weighs right at 5lbs ready to fly; very good power. However, I've snapped 1 motor shaft, possibly due to gyroscopic effects of knife edge spins/crankshafts, etc. Possibly also just a fluke. Replaced shaft; couple dozen flights since then no problems.Thanks. Those Motroflys are pricey! I've heard some good things about the BadAss motors. Wondering if this one would work?
BadAss 3530-470 Brushless Motor (innov8tivedesigns.com). It's a little smaller than the 43 series but will put out 1300 watts on 6S with a 16x7 prop.
Or maybe this one?

Got this one on my EF 60" Edge fatty; that plane weighs about 6lbs RTF and is ballistic on a 16x7. Highly recommend this motor in that size/weight planeTrying this one on a bro's recommendation.
What is your actual amp draw? 65ish?.im assuming youre propped to somewhere around 1500 watts?Joebob, I can't speak to the Potenza, Never even seen one.
On the battery, I would probably split the 6S into a 3S pair in series, if you have room on the fuse. I have mine on a single 6S and it takes a large stack of washers to offset the lateral balance of having all the battery on one side. You definitely notice it on axial rolls. As far as size, I run 4000 or 4Ah and get well over 5 minutes on a MoAss and Primo 60. Now these are good batteries (Graphene) and weigh almost as much as some makers 5000. Running a Castle 100 on the MoAss and a Talon 90 on the Primo.
The MoAss had that 100A ESC on it when I bought it from Gatorb8 when he went out. The Scorpion motor it had chucked the magnets and wrecked the windings, so I replaced with Motrolfly.What is your actual amp draw? 65ish?.im assuming youre propped to somewhere around 1500 watts?
Seems like you would have plenty of headroom with a 100 amp esc.i have another one of the dualskys im planning to use on a jeide built sbach.i was hoping to use an phoenix ice 75
