Mega have been around for a long time and are well known for quality motors. Their little inner-runners have been popular in the past, and now they have developed a range for current needs - in particular motors that can be used for F5J. Being inner-runners, they overcome all the problems with fitting a motor to a narrow glider fuselage. There are no external moving parts to worry about! The ESC connects to the cables that come out the back of the motor.

This motor is a long, thin inner-runner that is claimed to haul a 2.5kg glider to 200m, even in wind in 30 seconds.
I am currently importing this special motor ideal for F5J gliders. Plus a really neat spinner! The cranked centrepiece allows the blades to fold flat - the pins holding the blades have no heads - fitted with an Allen key.

I have been flying a 1.8kg F5J model with this motor. I found that it pulled a little more amps than specified.
I use a 12x5" prop on 3S and it draws 40A and takes the model to 250m in 30 seconds.
