Looks can be deceiving. This outrunner is around twice the size of a towerpro bell motor, and swings a much larger prop. Its the motor used on some of Art-techs new plane kits, which is testiment to its durability, ease of use and quality. The DT700 will swing an 11x4.7 SF prop nicely, to produce more than 900g of thrust. Its great for larger GWS foamies or parkfly planes.
Spec. Required Voltage: 11.1v Suggested Battery Capacity: 1300mAh + Suggested Prop: 10x4.7, 11x3.8 or 11x4.7 Max current draw: 13A (with 11x4.7 prop) Max thrust: 900g+ No Load Current: 1.2A Shaft: 4M (perfectly suited to Towerpor/GWS SF Slow Fly props) Weight: 78g Diameter: 41mm Overall length: 77mm Kv: 700rpm/v Comes with mount as shown in Image
Test Report. We used this outrunner to power the an Art-tech Pitts. Run with a 1300mAh 3S1P 20C pack, 18A BESC and 1147 GWS/Towerpro prop, the Art-tech pitts ran nicely. Excellent climb rate, though not hoverable, and with 13minute flight times or more, we were very impressed. A very efficient outrunner for slower flying models of up to .15 size.
This one will be good for a multi rotor.But some how I am not convinced by this to make a strong one.Try this one-Turnigy L3010C-1300kv (420w).It is also bell type and is much more powerful and cheaper than this one.
I made two quads using bell-type motors and I didn't like the idea. Bell type motors tend to vibrate more, and I just hate these dt700s : LONG shafts, and a grub-screw type mount and co**** bearings.
Buy a normal motor instead, like try the NTM prop drives.
Nice motors. Just wish they were anodized a different color. The powder blue is just ugly. Make sure to secure the leads where the come out of the stator with a little epoxy, or silicone or they will eventually break due to stress. They should also include a non-threaded shaft, or offer a version of the motor with a short non-threaded shaft. For multicopters use 12" props on 3S, and 11" props on 4S for best overall system efficiency.
Bought 5 of these for my quad (one for a spare). They motors are excellent. I did a mod to the shaft by cutting it short and mounting 4mm collet as I'm not a great pilot and needed to protect the shaft from bending. ;-)

These are great motors. The windings could be neater. Make sure to use a little epoxy on the leads close to the stator to secure them or they will eventually break due to stress.
On multicopters, Use them with 12" props on 3S, or 11" props on 4S for best efficiency.
Great motor! I am swinging a 12x8.5 folding prop on my 10ft WS sailplane. I don't have any numbers yet, but it puts out way more thrust than my previous motor on the plane. Less rpm and more thrust. I did cut the shaft off to a more desirable length. Just cut it with some wire cutters and the bevel the edges with a belt sander to utilize the threads. A great value!!!
top notch motor for quads and tricopters.swings a bigger 11 inch prop no problem no heat and low load amperage draw. under 18 amps easy. i love them love them love them. highly recommend tough also crashed many time just keep going no bent shafts

These are great Motors. I have 3 on my Tricopter V2.5 all wood build. auw is around 400g. it flips and moves great!. very quiet and responsive. no heat or problems at all. I appreciated the generous amount of threaded stock on the motor so that it will fit a variety of applications. I will build a larger plane now and I am sure this motor will have no worries on pulling it out! Thanks HK!
