The eco motor is a clone of the ares motors from skyrc. I have one of the skyrc ares motors coming today and I might run it this weekend. I have heard good things about those motors. many locals also run the turnigy red can motors, which are like $40

I have heard nothing but good reviews for the ECOpower motor. Ive also heard that the Schuurspeed is by far the best. Im an Associated/Reedy guy at heart. Ive heard the ECOpower stays pretty cool.

IF you're serious about 17.5, there isn't any other motor to consider that is available to the public other than the Trinity short stack.

I like my reedy, it just runs a little bit hot for me. Fine with a fan though.

Im not a fan of heat. Its probably hard to avoid with the gearing run in stock classes though. Maybe Ill have to give this guy a try.

Any other options for fan mounting out there? And a good fan to use?
