    hum, i'm no nitro pro, but i'm guessing its a rip off block, maybe of an O.S. block??????????
    but for like $45....... it would be tempting to try it for sure!!!

    Yes that is an early os motor. Probably the pat. came off and now being reproduced by a different company. It looks like the old .15 OS max from about 15 years ago.

    whats up addicts??

    haven had a lot of time of late. but got the E-MTA out for a run on the long weekend here. poor thing copped some abuse. need a few spares parts for it now. Melted a wheel off (yes you read that correctly), and now its front wheel drive as well. But it was all in good fun, and going from full speed on 6S into 30m of cartwheels is not good for anything, although she still ran alright after that. only wish I had my cam on it.....

    so need to find time to take it apart and beef up the transmission. But in all honesty I expected this to happen. the slipper clutch was over tightened from the factory and never once slipped :ka boom:

    good mate. really busy with work (hence my lack of appearance here). But back to working in Brissy again full time, and 3 hours travel a day. it was a weekend for more crashes for me. had a pretty good one with the AR Drone as well. was probably a little too windy to be trying flips while moving at full tilt :nose bleed:

    think it decided it didnt know which way was up, and just shut down all motors at about 10m up. flies like a rock when that happens. but I have a heap of spares for it, so had it up again in no time. think i destroyed 1 pinon, 3 shafts, 3 spur gears, and 2 propellers.....

    still need to buy a heap of parts to fix the mini heli, and mini quad... .

    Was going good until I tried to show off and pull a flip for the first time... Poor little quad. I will get it back in the air soon, but till then the ar drone is the only functional air craft I have.....

    Sup guys!

    Definitely love an underdog! :)

    Mind you Datsun is still winning motorsport events :haveaniceday:

    Well it was a weekend of sorts for RC for me. Was unpacking a box from under the bed and found the charging cord for my iCopter.

    Methinks the lipo is stuffed as it barely has enough power to lift itself now and lasts all of 5 minutes before it can only hover.

    Also my brother once said to me “I’m surprised you haven’t raided it for parts” We he shouldn’t have said that as after the Friday night carpark fiasco. I did so I could go for a walk with my son on his bike. Well while showing it to the deaf/mute lady who lives over the way, I nailed the gutter at full speed. Missed the driveway by that much! The servo exited the chassis and the broken post had to be screwed back in place.

    However I think I may have shifted the motor as it now sounds like I’ve stripped the gears in it. That’s going to be tonights job if I don’t make it to the garage to play with my tig. I finally got the gas for it! :) Bumper bars for the truck will be exiting the workshop shortly !!

    I hate when stupid crap happens when you try things for the first time. im hoping my new one works good with just a few adjustments. Im going to do a build thread once all the parts come in
