Hello John, YES YOU CAN :-) however it is designed for heli because it has the cooling fan at the end. This is usually not needed in a plane and for sure it is OK for a car/truck. Just check that the other details like size, bolts, and axel will fit your car. Enjoy your hobby!
Like the price, the quality is a matter of luck* the windings are prone to shorting when the load briefly approaches the max of the motor.
I've had two of these motors short out without the motor even getting handwarm, so build quality is an issue.
My current motor runs well, so far so good...
30c 3000mah lipo is 90A max so yes you are exactly right skycraft, hook up your watt meter and start off with a 5 inch prop. Doesnt matter if it is a slow fly prop or not. Just know that the slow fly prop will flex more because its thin close to the hub. This will be an experiment for you and Im sorry I cant give you better information. But for this price I hope you buy it.
This looks identical to the 1600kv motor (previously known as Hobby King 500H Heli Motor 1600kv (500 Class)) I purchased 2 years ago and have been running on 6S 40C on my EXI500 with no problems. Specifications:
Dimension: 37mm x 56mm, 76mm(with shaft)
Weight: 193g (kv1600) (including connectors)
Max current: 55A
Diameter of shaft: 5mm
Length of front shaft: 20mm
A not-so serious upgrade for 500 class helis. Solid performance, and a perfect motor for first time 500 heli pilots.
I would hope someone from HobbyKing could confirm for you, or you could just try it.
Bonjour, Très bon moteur,utilisable en 4s sur mes 500, bien suffisant pour le vol réaliste....ne chauffe pas...normal en 4s....et a un couple suffisant.... Equipe deux maquettes ;;MD 500 et bell 429 RAS....super pour le prix...
Great little motor. I know it is meant for a heli but I use mine in my new Yak55. It goes like a rocket. It was a little tricky setting it up since it comes with no mounts or prop adapter. Very power full.
