Not sure if this is the best place, but I have just tried my SAMS electric flight system:
http://www.samsmodels.com/products/hardware/electric-flight-unit-sams
and was met with a stony silence. I suspect the motor. I also suspect that it is just a simple spare part fitted to countless small foam rc models. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks

Looks like a standard Horizon/e-flite/parkzone 8mm motor. BUT they come in a few flavours, some more powerful than others. Plus they have a preferred rotation in that they wear out much more quickly when run the wrong way.
The good people at Micron should be able to help, have the dead one in the hand when you ring them. http://www.micronradiocontrol.co.uk/index.html
