With 4s and 8x4 ecalc shows 875g thrust and only 525g thrust on 3s. Prop up for 3s. I run this motor on my Mini Ugly Stick AUW 650-750g depending on battery used. All 4s 1000-2200mAh. Unlimited vertical so more than 750g thrust. Power meter shows 192w at 15.135v pulling 12.69 amps off fresh battery, static. Hope this helps. Cheers,
I'm currently running these motors with 9", 4.7 props in an X quad layout but this was strictly from a recommendation I found online. As I'm trying to learn more about this hobby, I'm wondering if there is a better or optimal propeller I should consider.
Ie: Do I go shorter but higher pitch?
I see others in this thread saying they are using 10", 4.7
Would this give me better performance or would it overstrain these motors? How much would my battery life suffer?
I currently get more than 10 minutes of quality fly time.
So many questions :)
Tested this motor with a 10x4.7 slow fly prop, 30 amp esc and 3s 20c lipo battery. I was quite skeptical about this motor due to the bargin price. Anyway, here are my results:
180 watts and 18 amps
The motor gets warm at full throttle. Yet, I never need to use full throttle. This motor is powerful. It is also a smooth and quiet. My other motors aren't as smooth. My slow stick flies with a viciousness now. It gets up high in no time. The motor comes in a plastic case with a prop adapter, mount and information. The cost is under $8, yet it feels like a quality built motor which includes information. I curious to see the lifespan of this motor. Be certain to solder the bullet connectors on well or the motor will stutter like mine did. I had to re-solder the connectors again and it worked. I really like this motor!!

I have 3 of these total... two in a Multiplex TwinStar and one as a backup. They're fantastic motors for the price. I run 8x6 APC electric props on them (not the SloFly models, the standard electric props) and they always come down cool. 9x6 prop stressed them a bit. 8x6 was the sweet spot. Efficiency is awesome on these, too. I can fly for about 15 to 20 minutes and only use 1100mAh on my 2200mAh packs. Great stuff!
