Hi ashwin, If you need 1kg of thrust you will have to use a 4S LiPo. On a 3S, the most I have been able to achieve is approx. 825g-850g on a 9x6SF prop. That said, the motor runs smooth and cool. If you want more than 1kg on a 3S, have a look at the Turnigy D2836/8 1100kV motor. Same series as this motor, a bit heavier, but lots more thrust (330W) from a similar size/price motor. Cheers, EA!
I am using HobbyKing Quadcopter Frame V1, nanowii flight controller board, D2830-11 1000kv Brushless Motor, 10x4.7 props, TURNIGY Plush 18amp Speed Controller, A zippy flight max 5000mAh 20C 3S1P battery, Turnigy 9x Tx-Rx.
Even at full throttle it doesn't take off at all.
I am not able to figure the problem.
To calibrate the esc, you can use the multiwi program* you have to uncomment this line "//#define ESC_CALIB_CANNOT_FLY // uncomment to activate", after, you must upload the sketch into the board, then disconnect the usb cable and connect the battery (without the propellers mounted), if the procedure is ok, you can hear a series of sounds, when the sounds are ended the ESCs are calibrated. After this, you can re-comment the line and re-upload the multiwi sketch.
With your propellers and a 3S battery, the max required current is 10/12A for every motor. The max current reported in the motor's datasheets, is the max limit of the motor and not the current absorbed in any situation.
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!
no problem yet. mine have 1.5h flight time now and still running strong. using lipo 3s 1300mah and a 9:6 prop, only need half trottle on my 1kg beaver.

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!!
