Hi Nicolas, The HK BlueSeries 20A ESC (PRODUCT ID: HKz20A) is a great match for this motor. It's plug'n'play because it has an auto-timing feature that automatically sets the timing to the motor based on the highest rpm vs. current efficiency. Cheers, EA!
Hi Nicolas, This motor draws up to 15A of current depending on the prop you use. The Red Brick 10A ESC is too small for this motor. The BlueSeries 20A is a good choice. You could also use the HK SS series 15A/18A ESC (PRODUCT ID: HK-SS18A). Cheers, EA!
Hi Mar11, I replied to the comment you made on my review of this motor, but I'm not sure if you get notified of review comment replies, so I'll paste it in here to ensure you get it. "Hi Mar11, I started out with this motor, the 2612, on my Reaktor but switched to the 2614 after 3 burned out. The 2614 is a little better ... more powerful, lasts longer, etc. but it was still fragile and a minor crash would crack the base/mount. As soon as I switched to the D2822/14 I knew I had found the motor I was looking for. Only 12g heavier than this one, but awesome performance and tough as nails. I won't miss the dramas I had with this motor. Cheers, EA!"
Hi Mar11, I don't have any first-hand experience with that motor or with high-speed applications like the radjet, so my opinion is of little value. You're probably best off reading all the radjet discussion posts to see what motor is most recommended. We leave the UK in a few days bound for home, so I can finally look forward to flying again. Can't wait! Cheers, EA!
Hi Mar11, Wht don't you just cancel out the whole order and start over with the stuff that's in stock. As I understand it, HK will credit the money you paid against your Bonus Points. Then you just apply your Bonus Points to the new order. At least you're not waiting for 1 item that could take months to re-stock. Anyway, I'm glad to be home and flying again. Cheers, EA!
I have two of these motors on a twin - engine plane, they are driven by two Turnigy plush 12A controllers. The motors hesitate to start with any load (i.e 8" prop) - they turn (stuttering) and sometimes catch then run fine. Sometimes, one (or both) fail to "catch" and the controller gives up and shuts down. Any ideas?
avez vous verifié vos soudures?
cela peut provenir d une mauvaise soudure des connecteurs ou bien un des fils au niveau du moteur qui est sectionné d'où le problème pour le moteur de prendre des tours ou l impossibilité de démarrer
il doit sauter une phase dans sa rotation
sorry i can spel it in english
does your esc emit three quick beeps when you switch on? I have found this a lot with various people and it means the throttle trim is not right back to zero.This is often the cause of the problem. Big Col
This motor looks identical to the ST2004 Donkey ! I wonder if it has the brass bushing in it also ! Too bad my order of three turned out sour as all of them vibrate bad and they all had slag on the inside of the bell that caught the windings. The bell is different on this one after studying it though but the rest looks similar.. I would not like buying this and finding the same problems with quality control..
This motor is not the same as the donkey. It's a ball bearing motor that is smaller than the ST2004, lighter by 10g, and very precisely made. I own 2 of them and have had no problems. Amazing power from such a small package and the built-in prop-saver is a great feature for use on 3D foamies that are likely to have the occasional premature landing. Cheers!
Its hard to tell with the pictures in size comparison ! But you say these are smaller and are a good choice, then I will try them out. I will have to get a bigger motor bin to store these if not :>D. Ive got a lot of HK motors that I cant use and they are sitting until I find a use for them other than a Quad or Tri copter..
Hi Mar11, I had lots of problems with this motor, but if you look at the date of the original post you'll see it's from back in Oct, 2011. I had just started flying my first Reaktor with this motor and hadn't yet encountered the quick demise syndrome that plagued the first 3 motors. BTW, We're just passing thru the Suez canal at the moment. I'm on the ship's WiFi ... very expensive. Cheers, EA!
perfect motor for a little foamie of 200g. I use a 6x3 prop with 3S... great product!
No comments. Reply..
Comes with 2mm gold bullet connectors, prop saver, prop adapter for two diameters of slow props and screws.
3s 450mAh and HK 7x3,5 prop takes 12A max
3s 450mAh and HK 8x4 prop takes 16,5A
Use it with the hobbyking 12A ESC and it works perfectly in my 200g foam Pitts. 7x3,5 will turn very fast - prop needs to be aligned nicely, hoover at 1/2 throttle and quite quick at full speed. However I have resonances at 80pcnt which I suppose come from the bending not perfectly balanced prop...
Flight time with 450mAh 3s at around 8min / 3,6V per cell.
To bring down the prop speed I use now the 8x4 which gives even more power and static thrust but is running better. Hoover at 1/3 throttle.
Tried the 6x3 from HK prop - it disassembled at first test run! Make sure the prop withstands very high rpms!
