    Here are the numbers in ecalc for your 710KV G25 and a 13x6 APCE. These numbers should be quite precise, Note the warning written in red. Also the low speed:

    If you let me know what sort of performance you would like for your plane, I can give you a motor recommendation.

    710 on a hardcore 44? I wouldn't put anything less than a 1700 on this bird. Even the big drak - a big, heavy plane uses a 950kv. 1700 (mini drak motor - cobra 2814 1700) or the 2217 2300kv if you want it to go interdimensional. I think the 1700 is the prefect motor for this plane personally.

    Ahhh, gotcha. Sorry. I planned on puttting a motor very similar to the big drak motor on my 63. It's 1100 instead of 950. Same size - 3515. Good luck.

    Damm, second time typing this from my phone.
    Got distracted.
    Damm Squirrels.
    So the motor I decided to use is.
    Common Sense RC E-25 1200kv.
    It is a small motor with tons of power.
    I was a little worried about the motor not handling the power.
    Then after doing some thrust stand test.
    I mounted it.
    It is pulling 65.10 amps max.
    Top speed 80.44 mph.
    I don't really need to speed. I need it to climb.
    I was climbing pretty fast.
    It seems this motor does not mind the 60+ amps.
    after 2 flights today. I am loving the combo.
    It seems to float as well as it goes fast.
    I have a box of motors from my Pylon racing days.
    Each ship I vuild, if I don't buy the suggested motor.
    I will mount and test two or three motors.
    If I don't like the test results, I will find something equivalent to the suggested motor.
    Thank you for your help.

    I kept them off so I could apply the decals. I may or may no add the fences. Just want to fly them and hopefully race.
