how would this motor go on a dji 450 with 20a escs on 9 x 4.7 props. will it outperform an ifly 850kv motor 10 x 4.5 prop? i have ifly motors currantly and looking to upgrade, however i only have 20a esc's so i cant go a motor over 20a
Hi David, Thanks for the credit. The Park480 will pull over 30A at full throttle, so you'll want to use a 40A ESC. I run it on a HK BlueSeries 40A and it's a great ESC. They're in stock at the AUS warehouse. For servos you should run 12g-14g metal gear servos. There's dozens to choose from, but I've had good luck with Corona brand and HobbyKing's own brand. Cheers, EA!
Hi David, Thanks for the credit. Yes, the Park480 1320kV is stocked in the AUS warehouse. Copy/paste "Park480-1320" into the search bar at the top of the page and you should see both the INTNL and AUS warehouse items come up. Cheers, EA!
Hi David, Now I know which plane you're referring to. Sounds like you may be fairly new to aerobatic/3D flying, so here's the rule of thumb. Sport flying aerobatic planes need a motor producing thrust equal/greater to the weight of the plane. Extreme aerobatic/3D planes need a motor that produces thrust equal to 150%-200% of the weight of the plane. The plane should be able to hover on 1/2-2/3 throttle. This motor only puts out approx 900g of thrust on a 3S, so it's too small for the Unbreakable. You would be better off stepping up to something like the Park480-1320kV (PRODUCT ID: Park480-1320) which will produce more than 1300g of thrust. Cheers, EA!
Hi David, I gave you a motor recommendation above (PRODUCT ID: Park480-1320), but forgot to address the battery issue. A 2200mah/3S is perfect for the Park480. That's the set-up I use on my Yak55 EPP 3D and the performance is awesome. 6-8 minute flights with unlimited vertical performance. Almost 1400g of thrust. Cheers, EA!
Hi David, Which EPP-3D are you referring to? Regardless, The amperage is fairly low on this motor, approx 19A at full throttle on a 3S, so you can get 6 minutes or more of mixed-throttle flying off LiPos as small as 1500mah. Cheers, EA!
Does anyone know if this prop adapter (PRODUCT *ID: OR002-01203) is better than the ones supplied with this motor? And do you know how deep it will fit on the motor shaft? The ones that cone with the motor only sit half way down the shaft, maybe 7mm and look odd on a quadcopter.
This would be a good motor for a trainer weighing 530g.For this model you need around 100 watts of power, have listed below the approx figures you will achieve with various props. 8 x 5 Current Draw 9amps,Power 100w. 9 x 5 Current Draw 12.5amps,Power 138w. 10 x 4 Current Draw 14amps,Power 155w. Hope this helps.
I agree the 9x5 would work well I have been using a 10x3.8 o 3 cells on a 1000mm low wing bulsa plane and would like more power would be good for a trainer a little more prop wash over controls, cheers
A 10 x 7 will draw about 20amps or 220 watts on a 3s setup. Great for vertical climbs... However this puts it right at its max amp draw so don't stay at full power all flight. These motors have a very hard shaft. Won't bend easily.
I have only measured static thrust by connecting a digital haning scale on the back of the plane and run up to full speed, best to use an amp meter to check your not over drawing current, changing the prop size will change thrust, current etc. remember to restrain your plane when testing. cheers
Excellent motor, using 4 in a 450 size quad, 9x4.7 slow fly GemFan props, 9 minutes with 2200mh packs.
They do have softish shafts that are fairly long so if you can I advise that you cut them a bit shorter.
Good balance out of the box if you remove the sticker.

Bang for buck satisfaction is very high! Only problem is motor shaft was slightly bent when it arrived. I had to cut the shaft down by around 15mm, it's way too long but this also helped the bent shaft. I'm using this on a 10size WM balsa spitfire driving a 9x4.5 prop. Flight time is almost 20min! half throttle current = 5a, WOT = 10a. Producing around 120w peak but never been there in the air. I have no probs recommending this little motor.
These are great little motors with lots of punch. They are 1000kv even though they are labeled as 1100kv.

Removed MPX geared 400 from an MPX Easy Glider, modified the nose and installed this excellent zero vibration motor. HK 10x6 folding prop/spinner unit driven by a 2S 1800 Nanotech = 65W static. This combination gives a gentle but positive climb similar or better to the original motor, and allows for multiple climbs to height. Same setup tested with 3S = 205W. When available will try HK 11x6 folding for comparison, even though slightly out of motor spec for 2S.
