Comment: 160 size planes commonly fly 30cc - 50 cc gas engines. These will put out 18 - 30 pounds of thrust.
I see a trend at hobbyking to put out the larger electric motors requiring very high voltage (> 6S). These electrical systems require running batteries in series to boost voltage, increasing the complexity of the wiring.
I prefer to use 6S power max, and this motor does not put out much thrust on 22.2 volts.
I can get the same amount of thrust (with 6S) out of a 50 size motor and 15 x 8 inch prop.
The bottom line, for me, is that the 55-60mm motors at HK with higher kv (500) seem to have loose magnet problems. And the larger electric motors require voltage that is too high to be a good value. I don't see any good HK options for the 20-30cc gas planes that are becoming very popular in America now. I'm looking for 12-18 pounds of thrust on 6S voltage, and a motor that doesn't have a history of throwing magnets.
www.link haven't found a good motor that can put out 15 pounds of thrust. And certainly not one that could put out the 18 lbs of thrust of the new 30cc gas engines.
I just ordered 2 of the Turnigy SK 5065 275kv rated at 2050 watts (because this has a 5 star rating, so there may not be thrown magnets), but this is rated to just put out 13 lbs at redline. I will use this motor with 6S voltage, 7500 - 10,000 mAh batteries, in an 80 inch Piper Pawnee crop duster. I should be able to 10 lbs of thrust out of it to fly an 8lb plane vertically.
I do have a Hyperion 4035-10 375kv which is rated at 1386 watts. But this will not fly a 30cc 3D plane. I'm flying a 58 inch Hyperion Pitts with this, but that is only 8 lbs.
I will leave a message if I come across a good, moderately priced motor that could put out 18 lbs of thrust.
I'm looking at using this motor in an ESM Stuka. It has 80"ws and will weigh in at around 15 lbs. I'd like to run it on 6S 5000mah. The props I have in mind for scale proportions are 3 blade 17X10 to 19X10. I'm looking to get about 1600 watts (23v X 72 amps). Any thoughts from those that run this motor.
I feel you would be down on power. The motor is rated for 9-10 cells why run it on 6 cells? As for your weight that is RTF? If so I would go with more cells and let this motor do what it is designed to do pull a 12 to 20 LB plane into the air.
it's amazing that this item is still in the catalogue with a promise of being available within 20 days. This is now backordered for at least 2 months!
Not the first time HK do not deliver on backorders* Lesson learned: order an alternative immediately
I just purchased this motor. I am going to use this in a sport plane. It will weigh 6.8 KG or 14.96 pounds. I am going to use a prop that will get the best performance out of this motor with out doing damage. I am looking for prop sizes with a 8 cell lipo battery and amps people have used.
10S is a good choice. Motor is rated to 2700W, so you can push it that hard without damaging it. You must restrain your throttle - not 100% all flight. Target 50% average, and only 100% for short bursts when you need it. According to my calcs you'll need a 15x10 prop, but it depends on the accuracy of the resistance and Kv. You MUST use a watt meter to confirm the prop is right.
I have the same motor and mount. It does mount from the backside to the HXT mount. However, you may have to cut the HXT mount to shorten it if you don't need your motor mounted 110 mm out from the firewall. Cutting the alloy is easy with a dremel and doesn't affect the structural integrity of the mount once all of the bolts are tightened.
Yes, you CAN run it with a 6S set-up. Your rpm's will obviously be lower than with a 10S set-up, but you can go with a more co**** prop as long as you do not exceed the motor's power limit. Remember Power (Watts)= Volts x Amps
So u guys having good luck with this motor? In thinking about doing a e-conversion of my TF Staggerwing (20 lbs) Would the TURNIGY Sentilon100A HV 5-12S BESC(Ver4) work on this setup on 5000mah 12S 25c(2x6s5000mah) 20x8 prop. (I can use these packs on other planes) What do you guys think? is the 100A SC enough? or how about 3x 3s packs for 9s total?
I'm running this motor on 8S 5000mah (2x4S 5000mah) in my e-conversion Midwest AT-6 Texan (15 lbs) with a 19x10 APC-E prop. Pulls 65 amps for 2100 watts of power. Afraid a 20x8 on 12S would pull too many amps for the motor. On 12S you only need to pull 40-45 amps for impressive power output.
i ust bought this same motor and useing 6cell im swinging a 22x6 prop on a super dechatalon and i get great battery time and no over heating i wouldnt push it to 10cell unless your running a 200amp esc or a hv esc. i am running a 180amp esc and it is a great match up
Seems like a large powerfull motor that if anything looks very much the same styling as most of this series of Turnigy motors. I love the way every time a new product comes out people go crazy trying to say it's a copy of this or that. Who cares anyway?
Let's start with kv, this one 290. Your example 197. Max current, this one 78amps, no time limit, your one 58amps for 60 sec. Weight, this one 632g, yours 652. Conclusion = Nothing like a clone. Not even similar.
Right on Sawdust and Lolzer! Kent, firstly it's a MOTOR, not an ENGINE! Learn some basic thermodynamics while you're out there being a hero. Secondly, if you think it's a toy, what are you doing on Hobby King's site? I think the one who needs a life is YOU!

or.....how bout on 9s (3x 3s packs) I need 6s on my other planes, can use 2x 3s to get the 6cells, I just want some versitility out of my packs, especially with the costs of these batteries. sorry if i sound like a nube, been in the gas and glow so long and the future is E, as all tech gets better and better, and the prices are slowly becoming affordable.
Coming back to the amount of cels you can use on a electric motor. The higher the volts the higher the rpm. If the volts to your motor is too low the plane won't fly. If the volts is to high the motor or esc will burn out. It's for you to find the right combinstion between motor, cells and esc to get the plane to fly the way you like it. Scale, speedfreak, prophang......
Hey guys, is anyone running this on 10S with the motor "reversed", i.e., with a "bolt on" prop adapter and the shaft coming out of the back of the motor? Do I need to JB Weld the end plate on? Will the motor "unscrew itself" if used "in reverse"? I have a 5055 580kv motor which seized in flight as a result of the above & cost me a $400 model. I dont want to repeat that with my new ESM 72.5" Spitfire!!
Just put this in my 1/4 Monocoupe converted, runs a 20x10 E pulls 77amp wot. Powered by 2 Turn 5c4500mah in series. Talk about authority plane weighs just at 18lbs auw. half throttle flyby's are impressive and still has plenty of power to climb out!. Gets around 12 mins flight and motor is just starting to get warm, ESC cool to touch. Turn 100 Sent... You can NOT go wrong with this motor!. Much better than the Turnigy equal...
I am running this motor in a 26cc MX2 airplane with 18x8 wood JXF prop on 2c Zippy3000mah40C with 6c zippy 3000mah40c and she pulls 72 amps WOT get about 9min flight take off is on half throttle GREAT MOTOR will buy more have the lipo RX pack and Turnigy DLUX 120amp HV ESC

Τhe motor is unbalanced and the test data is a joke!!2x4s turnigy 3600 30c will give about 70A max on a 21x12 prop .Its ok for my katana 120.
I had to take the motor bell off the bell was rubbing the stator due to extra epoxy that dripped in the motor. I was worried it was no good. After sanding and cleaning the motor it works perfect. I gave it five stars but it is really 4 and 1/2. I will post prop data in a couple of weeks.

I plan to mount this motor on a Sbach 300 in place of a 30cc gas engine. Waiting that the model be finished, I did some bench testing.
In 6s, the values shown in description isn't reached!? But, in 8s, this motor becomes "a monster" of power ...
For the tests below, I powered with 2x 4s 5800mAh 25C Zippy compact, and controlled by a TGY Dlux ESC 120A.
Propeller 18x10 - 7830RPM - 2653W - 89.8 A - Static pulling 8.5 kg
Propeller 18x12 - 7830RPM - 3076W - 108A - Static pulling 9.3 kg
Propeller 19x10 - 7230RPM - 3167W - 116.8 A - Static pulling 9kg
You have to know that the estimated final weight of the model is 4,3kg... ;-) Waouh!
After testing, I found one magnet was unglued. This was quickly resolved; I pushed it in his place, put a few drops of cyano and it's ready again...
Finally, I think it's a very good engine, but surely not 6s.
