NTM Prop Drive motors are rock-solid performance outrunners with tight windings, quality bearings, correctly rated magnets, balanced stator and flux rings plus they are QC checked at 14 points, from material processing all the way through to final dyno test.
Because we design and build these motors completely in-house (from 3D/2D drawing to materials sourcing, machining, balancing, final assembly and dyno) we can completely control production and ensure product consistency from design right through to shipping the product to you. The removal of middle-men has meant we can drive better value to the market and retail these motors at factory(our) prices! All performance figures are real and tested on our own motor dynos.
Our QC engineers check and balance each motor before shipping to the HobbyKing.com warehouse.
Has anyone got some data on this motor running 6S - specifically with a 20 inch prop. I expect to run Probably a 20x8 on 6s, but it hasn't arrived and I'd rather not buy a bunch of props to test it, if someone has this stuff handy already and could try it out for me, thanks.
I used produt HK-201 epoxy and after 5 flights everything still good. If you warranty change the motor, your posting costs could be more than new motor price. Also with the new motor you could face the same problem.
Today I had the maiden flight. All okay, but the motor stops to turn after the flight. I hear a strange noise on a certain angle. Maybe it would be the bearing broked.
Anyone can help me on how to repair or ask HK to change my motor ?
My setup was 6s 16x10 100A Esc
Maybe some magnets got loose, as mine had. I took the central out and glued two magnets back using epox.
Click contact -> Customer Support Center -> Submit request and select faulty product. Good luck for that. Usually post cost is more that the product price.
Yo solo vuelo con motores elé*ctricos. Estoy usando el NTM 5050 580, speed de 100A y bat Nano 4.5A 45C 6s, en un avió*n de 1600mm de envergadura con excelentes resultados, sobra potencia. Considero que el NTM 5060 en 8S deberí*a proporcionarte suficiente potencia para tu avió*n de 1700 mm. Te aconsejarí*a usar bat de por lo menos 5A y 45c para volar sin preocupaciones.
ola joan57, debes saber el peso total de tu avion y el estilo de vuelo el avion pertense, si es sport, vuelo lento, 3d, etc. para saberlo ai algunos sitios que te dan estas infos para calcular la potencia que debe tener tu motor, despoue de essto puedes ver er sitio llamado eCalc donde ai diversos motores para calcular la potencia.
yo estoi volando el ntm 5050 en un bigstick de great planes clase 60 de 1.69m, usando elece 13 x 8 tengo 1250w de la bateria 6s 5000mah de 20c, vuelos de 8 a 9 minutos consumiendo 4000mah. espero tener ayudade, saludos desde Brasil.
Un esc de 120A está* bien para este motor, pero te aconsejaria usar por lo menos 6s para mejor resultado, ten en cuenta que el motor es de 380kv. Con 5S tendrí*as que aumentar el tamañ*o de la hé*lice.
HI NTM 5060 2665WATT OUTPUT I HAVE READ ON THIS FORUM THE MAGNETS TEND TO PART COMPANY FROM MOTOR ALTHOUGH THIS MUST BE A MINORITY OF CASES OR THIS MOTOR WON'T BE FIT FOR INTENDED USE, I ONLY INTEND TO DRAW 2000 WATT WITH 6S LIPO, WOULD THIS BE SAFE OR DO I SHY AWAY MANY THANKS GARY UK
DMAAN, You are correct. After less than 5 min of amp testing to be sure that the 17x10 was the correct prop, the motor seized. The magnets pulled right out and even cut the motor lead wires coming out of the windings. Pretty bad build quality. I ordered a Great Planes Rimfire from Tower Hobbies. Never had a problem with those motors. I guess you do get what you pay for.
Hi, any one who owns one of these, can you look into the can from the wiring side and see if you can see the magnet ends? Is there a ring holding the magnets or are they making a 2600 watt motor that only has glue holing the magnets in place?
You are correct. I didn't even get my model off the ground before the motor seized. The magnets pulled right out. Terrible quality. I'd pay another $5 just to see a solid ring in there and maybe it would be a decent motor for a while. I had the recommended ESC (100A) and prop (17x10) with a 5800mAh 6S Zippy attached. PURE ****!
Hobby King are you listening? You can't build a 3 HP motor with just glue, especially cheap glue no matter what the glue manufacturer says their specs are. Use better glue AND a retainer ring at the open end of the can to hold the magnets in place and I will buy 5. Great Specs, bad quality! Tell us when made properly and will buy.
what do you plan to do with the model? The type of flying will dictate how many watts/lb you need.
I think this is a 2500W motor on 7 or 8 cells so 6 cells will give you less max power.
The 20 * 8 prop might be right at the upper limit. You should use e-calc to get the analytical results.
Bought the motor but then found out it only has 3 bolts for the prop adapter so it won't take the adapter I had. I need a much bigger prop adapter than the stock adapter provided. Any ideas other than a collett type? Thanks
you will have to order the accessory pack from the states - 10 day delivery. i couldnt find any in the uk, and hk dont stock it in euro warehouse either..****e on HK, charge a bit extra and include it, it would still be great value!
Hello all, I want to use it with a lipo 6s 5000ma, and with a three blade prop in 17x8.
What Could I expect ? (Thrust, Power, etc...)
Project is a Seaplane: wheight 9kg, spann 2m50
Thanks for answer...
17x8 3 blade prop will need about 2700 Watt to run at 8360 RPM ( 380kv x 22 volt ). This will exceed max motor power ( will give you about 10 kg thrust )
Better to go for tinny smaller prop may be 16x8 3 blade, which will give you more than 8 kg thrust which is very good for your plane.
Hi! I own this motor and I have to say it is very strong and superb quality. You get the maximum power at 8S, but it will generate approx. 75/80pcnt of the maximum stated power if you use a 6S configuration. Then, it depends on the model you want to fly with it: if 80pcnt of the stated power is enough, you can go for it. Pay attention then at the propeller selection: - 8S means approx 32V, which means a theoretic MAX RPM equal to 12.160 RPM - 6S means approx 24V, which means a theoretic MAX RPM e
oops, i meant to ask about twin 6S packs in series = 12S
with the 380kv rating and 50mm can, it should take it... but I don't know.
After two flights I can say that the motor seems to be normal and good Turnigy quality at the price. I can get 1480w (61amps) with 17x8 or 16x10 propeller when using birdie 110amp esc and 5000mah 6s battery. New esc and propeller are on the way and hopefully I can get near 2000w or more. You can see this moror in my Turbo Raven plane using youtube and finding my stupeduu nick.
NTM 5060 380KV, 17x8 apc style, 5000mah 6s, HK 120A ESC, 60A 1300W.Well below max specs, magnets loose, cut wires. Maybe it is a very powerful motor, but I have not a chance to see that.

Fit this motor on my brand new 3dhs 71 aj slick, test flight wes fin, after landing i noticed that the motor is stuck.. Took it apart to find 7 of the magnets got loose.. It was hot outside but it should׳nt happen anyway.. So i dont recomand this motor for use in hot conditions
