they cant stop these motors i love them i run a couple of these in 1/8th buggys with heat sinks pulling 120 amp (gets very hot) when doing wheelys and 80 amps when at full wot. i know there only rated for 55 amp but these seem to survive what ever i put them throught
I know I love them two, And just like everything else that hobbyking has that is a great product once they hit back order they will sit like that for a few months then POW they disappear from the website.
There were some battery balancers and 3 bladed propellers that they did that to that I loved. Among other stuff.
tell me about it, i was waiting for 9 months for hobbyking to restock the turnigy 9x controller finally got it and they always seem to get rid of the best stuff, like the old turnigy aerodrive inrunner motors. they are indestructable. cheers for the credit
you can convert any boat from brushed to brushless. you just put the motor in (check mount holes or drill new holes) and get suitable coupling to connect motor to shaft. put in correct size esc and lipos and then do some testing to find correct size prop. this motor is a good motor on 4s with water cooling jacket a 100 amp watercooled esc then tune to find correct prop and your boat will easy be twice the speed of the brushed setup
heres a link to a youtube video of you boat converted to brushless just remove space from link
http: //www. youtube. com/ watch?v =Wrj4f0RhN98 first he runs it on 2s and then 3s the 3s set up would run similart to this motor on 4s
hey, i dont have any personnel experience with your truggy but i have two 1/8th buggys running this motor. they both do about 45mph on 4s and they are geared low so they pop wheelies and stay cool even with out no heatsinks. this motor in a 1/10th will be belistic, you will be popping wheelies all the time. if you do run 4s cell you will wont a bigger esc, my motor spikes at 84amps under hard excelleration.
Actually having a sparrowhawk I can tell you no.
The motor is long and fat to fit, that and it being such a 2200kv your sparrowhawk will be slow, that and the face you won't be able to adjust the motor on the motor mount since the motor will be too big.
That is the motor you want it will be the long which is the middle motor in the picture.
Just realize this motor is not as big ad the Castle creations or trx 2200kv motor but will make a maxx scoot rite along on 4s.
6s it's the limit of the engine because the bearings can handle only 50000 rpm and with 6s the engine would be at 48840 rpm. So you can run it but care with temps and the bearings can last less than with a 4s configuration.
Normally I use them with 4S lipos.6S may be OK BUT it's not sugestd for long run times.
People here on hobbyking.com used them in 5S BUT for short run times,as you can see on comments posted down in the page where it's listed.
Producer is unknown,nowadays,BUT sems to be named also as 'Keda' Motors
Great motor for the money. I ran it in my 1/8 scale buggy on 4S lipo and it was a missile! Might want to consider using a motor clamp for racing. I used thread lock on the end bell. W/ the lock tite on the end bell it seems to be holding up pretty well after a couple of good runs this afternoon, but in a racing environment, I would really look into getting a clamp.
Very similar feel to the Feigao 9xl I have used in the pass, maybe a bit faster? Ran a little bit warm, but for the price it is still a great motor.

I just received 3 of this babies and immediately installed one on my Emaxx2 and used a mtroniks genesis esc, 4S 4800mah lipo. The speed and power of this motor is just insane! 5 Stars! I'll installed the second motor on my SV27 boat and see how it will perform!

This is a good motor, ran it in my converted HPI Mt2, ran it with a 3S lipo and a Mambamax esc, veary much power, but the speed was lacking. You can gear this motor pretty hard in that setup but i prefer thu use the 3500kv and gear lower.
Great motor for a great price.

Ground: 5S 17.5V 67A 4,75x4,75 38000 U/min
Air: 5S 18V 55A 4,75x4,75 40000 U/min at 330 km/h
After 60 sek full throttle 60 C
Performance is great. The weight of my motor is 290g NOT 260 gramm because of this 4 stars.
I am using this motor on a 1/8th OFNA Jammin X1 brushless conversion, Turnigy 5000mAH 4S 20C, gear ratio 13T/47T Spur. According to Wattsup meter getting 1.2kW, 86A Peak, Average runtime 21 minutes. Highly recommend use of Turnigy heatsink/fan combo on motor, this gives a constant less than 50 degC run temp.
