Picking Motor for hot weather


Recommended Posts

Currently living and flying at sea level but I will be moving soon. New home feild elevation is 5000 ft and it get hot in summer 110f (43C) this will be my first NEW equipment. I have just passed 100 hrs so I have a good idea of what I want in a frame and wing but as for motors need some advice. In short moster 185 (air cooled) vs thor 250 (water cooled). I will be flying a trike so weight does not bother me much. And I know I don't need the 250s power. But will the heat and load of a 105kg of me be to much for a moster at that altitude?
