That works great thanks! Now to get this timing adjuster to work...it's actually solid! Can't make it budge

Default 13.5 stock rotor Part #

Does anyone know the dimensions or the part number for the stock rotor that comes in the 13.5? Is it #954 12.3 x 24.2 x 7.25mm; #955 12.3 x 25 x 7.25mm; or #956 12.5 x 25 x 7.25mm?

It's supposed to be the 12.5 but mine was smaller, like 12.41 x 24.5. I bought the 12.5 and it was bigger. Picked up about a tenth with it.

I measured mine also (4-5 times) and got the same measurements you described. So the #956 is actually bigger. Go figure. Thanks wingracer. It's what I wanted to know in both dimensions and performance

Had this problem today when putting a new motor in, take the plastic cap off to reveal the sensor circuit board, there are three holes for the screws to go in, take a pair of needle nose pliers and put one end in two of the three holes and very lightly turn the sensor assembly, it will work

Nope. Looks more like a X20 LRP copy.

I think you need some new glasses, it looks nothing like anything LRP. It's clearly from the same mold so to speak as the Reedy and TP.

Most people also thought the Thunder Power's were the same as the Reedy's, they aren't.

Only way is to measure all the internals.
All the outer components look different as well.

Measure it. I bet it's not.

Sean, or any....Just picked up the 17.5 Reedy to run in 1/10 TC in blinky mode. Is this still a good starting point or has more testing been done? If so, where should we start? Thanks in advance.

I'm a different Sean but I would say that sounds in the ballpark. As I was discussing earlier, you might want to measure your rotor to see what you actually have.
