    Does anyone have any suggestions for a brushless motor for a featherweight horizontal spinner?
    (one to fit in an internal height of 49mm, custom pulley will likely be deisgned)

    I guess you have to modify one.
    Some people are using Motors from scorpion power, if i remember right, they are around 53mm heigh.

    Too close, chances are it’ll be squashed and scraping to the top.

    As said to fit in an internal height of 49mm.
    Because of how flat the design is.

    Budget depending you might want to look at large commercial and industrial drone motors. Most are under the 60mm mark yet can still provide a lot of power but you pay for it with higher costs and a lower RPM/v of around 80-180.

    Brands you might want to check out are Tiger Motor, KDE Direct, Neu Motors [Outrunners], Hacker Motor, Lumenier (T-Motor re-labeled?), Cobra Motors or Dualsky possibly.

    Other option is to run the motor horizontal with a right angled gearbox.

    Right angle Gearbox works well in Telekinesis, but I know Andy did look at a pancake motor. But we need more info in the weapon system
