Mega have been around for a long time and are well known for quality motors. Their little inner-runners have been popular in the past, and now they have developed a range for current needs – in particular motors that can be used for F5J. Being inner-runners, they overcome all the problems with fitting a motor to a narrow glider fuselage. There are no external moving parts to worry about! The ESC connects to the cables that come out the back of the motor.
This motor is a long, thin inner-runner that is claimed to haul a 2.5kg glider to 200m, even in wind in 30 seconds. However, if you glider really is that heavy, the 1635/3 would be better and you will not have to push the motor so hard. I have used the 1630/3 in a 1.8kg F5J model very successfully!
