Best Motor/ESC for the Sportster


Elite member
I've just finished a Sportster build and I want it to fly like this one in the simulator - if that's possible!

I already have a Simple Scout with the large motor, which can climb vertical no problem, but it doesn't have the throttle response like the one in the simulator. I have a Surpass 2814 910kV motor. Do you think it will be sufficient, or is the Flitetest large motor, which I also have sufficient. Whichever motor, which prop size and battery do you think would be best? Is there a better motor?

I’ve had great results from the Turnergy 3730 with a 12x3.8 slow fly prop on 3S
