Hey everyone, I just recently bought an ET48.3 and am currently in the middle of the build. I plan to keep this thread updated and report on any progress I have made.

Next step is electronics and power plant! Pics soon to come!

What is the can size of that Toro motor and where did you get it from? I'm planning for a lower KV motor for my MT410 for the future and look forward to hearing how this motor works out for you.

This is the motor I was debating upon getting in 1600KV for my MT410 if I make the complete switch to 6s.

When are you planning on having it finished and running it for the first time?

Edit: Lol I guess you answered this question while I was typing.

Lol yeah probably so. I edited it too to say that they have amazing shipping...they are awesome!

I was debating these two before I found this one. I went with the Toro because it has 8 poles and everything I've read said it's a great motor...like up there with Tekin good.

I went with 1950kv because I will be switching back and forth between 4S and 6S.

If you can fit a BLX185 in your MT410 then the Toro should fit fine. It's only 1mm longer I think and the OD is like 3mm or 4mm larger.

Yeah I am still undecided if I want to stay on 4s mostly or if I want to go more towards 6s. I have waaaaaayyyyy more 2s packs and not many 3s packs. So for now the stock BLX185 will most likely work well for me but we will see if I want more power or not.

I'm kinda in the same boat more 2s packs than 3s packs.

Also, I meant to say that if you CAN fit a BLX185 in your MT410 then this Toro will fit as well.

I hear ya. I went with Towers Easy Pay option. They changed it to 3 months versus the 2 it was before and all I had to do was ask! Tower is by far the best online RC retailer.

From what I have read they hold up to anything you throw at them. Do a YouTube search for a guy named "Overkill" and watch the videos of the Cordova motor in his ET....absolutely ludicrous!
