Hello there ericthepoolboy,

first of all, I would like to say "thank you" for your amazing work on this "series". I'am currently printing this engine and would like to donate it later to some local school for education purposes.

Than, I would like to ask if you managed to find some proper, strong enough electric motor to turn the full build engine which doesn't stall and has enough power. I was thinking about some brushless motor (gimbal motor?) with ESC, but I'am not so sure if that is a good idea. Your advice would be much appreciated.
