    Hey guys,

    Has anyone used this motor...Tomcat G100cc if so how do you like it and can you compare it to anything else for performance?

    I had a Tomcat G90 that was completely underwhelming. One of your club members has a 100cc Hangar-9 Beast powered by this Turnigy motor, been running great for a couple years now, flies it on 12S 10,000 (four TP 5000 packs) and a 27x12 prop http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...0cc_Size_Brushless_Outrunner_Motor_167kv.html

    [MENTION=2902]Bloosee[/MENTION] could you ask you friend if he knows or maybe you know...How that RotoMax motor compares to the Hacker motor for performance please.

    [MENTION=3728]Bushwacker[/MENTION], my buddy has the rotomax in his 100cc Beast and the Hacker A100 in a 100cc Aeroworks Ultimate. He's never had anything bad to say about the Rotomax. He trusts it with a $4000 plane in the air. He bought the Ultimate used and did an electric conversion with the Hacker that he acquired when Aeromodel had their liquidation sale, I don't think he would normally buy a $900 electric motor. How do the compare? Well he just acquired the Ultimate a few weeks ago and only has a handful of flights on it. He's running both on 12S 10,000, four 5000 packs.

    Cool [MENTION=2902]Bloosee[/MENTION] thanks.

    I think the Q80-6L and A100-8/A100-10 are fairly close in performance, both are 7000W motors. The Kv ratings are a little different, but not by whole bunch and all are 12S also the RPM range is only off by a 1000 rpm's between the A series and Q series 9000 rpm on the Q and 8000 rpm on the A. Motor weights are A100-8=1800 A100-10=1900 and Q80-6L=1295. So I look forward to his report on the Hacker motor. The one thing I worry about most are the bearings on the larger motors. Got to say man I really like the prices on those RotoMax motors. That RotoMax 150cc looks to be a beast for sure.

    Yes, hard to resist the price of those Rotomax motors. I was the surprised when he bought the Rotomax, I was like dude, you are putting a Hobbyking motor in your Beast, are you out of your mind? But he said it had a good reputation and he trusted it. He had a fancy Neu geared inrunner in it at first but was having difficulty with the motor and switched it out. Steve Neu the maker of Neu motors is a club member so there was a story behind why he got that motor. He since had Neu do some work on the motor and then put it in a 93 inch composite CARF Extra. Yes my buddy spends a LOT of money on the hobby, LOL.

    Boy I'll say he does. Thats cool though because you get to see the expensive stuff and then see if it's really worth the price. MooHaHa.

    He also has a 35% Hangar 9 Decathalon with a 12 foot wingspan running electric. I can't remember what motor is in that plane. And a 91 inch Hangar 9 Inversa running the recommended Eflite motor, Power 360 or something. Interestingly he doesn't fly 3D or so any serious precision flying, just flies them around doing loops rolls stall turns and such. And he just picked up a 104 inch composite CARF Extra 300, its used but he hasn't converted it to electric yet.

    They are some pretty awesome electric machines but to charge 4 batteries for a single flight is too much for me. He has 2 large forklift batteries wired in series in the pickup so he's got a 24v power supply. He gets to the field and immediately starts charging packs, he usually arrives with at least 4 already charged up.

    Believe it or not he has 65 planes that are in flying condition.
