Got my Brodak ARF Oriental and have two motors i could use: LA46 and Brodak 40. Which is better...for this plane?
A Brodak 40 will fly it, but an LA 46 will bring it to life! My grandfather had a Brodak 40 in his mustang and he had to fly it around 4.9-5.0 lap times. He put an LA 46 in it, and the plane flies much better than it did with the 40 and at a slower speed as well.
We run the LA 46 with a 12.25-4.25 carbon fiber prop turning about 9600RPM with a 40LA size Venturi (Randy Smith told us this and it worked out great!). It's a pretty bulletproof combination for us.
