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: 11x3.8 or 11x4.7 Max current draw: 18A (with 11x4.7 prop) Max thrust: 1000g+ No Load Current: 1.4A Shaft: 4M (perfectly suited to Towerpor/GWS SF Slow Fly props) Weight: 78g Diameter: 41mm Overall length: 77mm Kv: 750rpm/v Comes with mount as shown in Image
Test Report. We used the DAT700 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.
Not sure, but if it can be modified to use an outrunner I'm sure you could use it. Note this engine works well on 3s with an 11x4.7 prop, make sure you have enough ground clearance etc. I can assure you though, it would tear up the sky.
Anyone no if this will fit in my spitfire 800mm plane
This is the motor for tricopters! 1147 props 3S 3000 for 10 min flights, half power hover. Just replace the tiny mount grub screws with hex bolts, cut the shaft down and lisen for bearing failures. A few problemsbut am amazing motor for the money.

Great engine, using them on my tricopter. Running 4s with 10x6's and 30a esc's nothing is overheating and they perform well.
I would advise buyers to modify them like rcexplorer 'dot' se
does by cutting the shaft down, gluing the wires and using plenty of loctite on the grub screws.
Don't think I could find a better engine for the money.

These motors are good. Make sure you order HK 450 V2 bearings (Id:4mm Od:8mm width:3mm) and some bearing oil. Also make sure you grind down the shaft and mount the prop on a M4 nut, then the prop itself, then an M4 Locknut otherwise you will lose a prop (not a good idea on a quad). If the motors become stiff and don't spin well by hand, disassemble the motor and inspect the bearings rather than buying new ones all the time. I have tried to look for an exact replacement shaft, but I could not find one. I think you can use the turnigy aerodrive 35-36 shaft, but you will need a prop adapter. Rated 3 stars because one motor needed new bearings right out of the box. Power system that I used was 11x4.7 prop with Plush 30A escs.
