    Traxxas motor

    I have been given a Velineon 3500 motor, which comes out of an R/C car. Is there any reason I cannot use this in an airplane? I hate to waste a good (free!) motor.

    FT this is all your fault...

    Due to the entertaining nature of your well produced videos, I have suffered great physical abuse, overwork, and constant demands against my time and very limited resources.
