Hi!!! i have this motor, everything is ok except the shaft. it looks 2.4mm but just the finish of the shaft, the rest is 3 mm making susceptible to broke where this go thinner. i´*m learning to fly, and in my second flight day with this motor a bad landing broke the shaft!!! no replaces any where!!! so i install a shaft made of carbon fiber rod. hope this work!
si quieres una buena potencia,sobre todo en dias de viento,ya que es critico en una vuelta para enfentar el viento te recomiendo el turnigy www.link va a dar muchas satisfacciones,sin perder fuerza sobre todo,saludos
Hello, I', still very new to the hobby and I'm trying to build the 'Mini Glider EPO 800mm (KIT)' plane : http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__20980__Mi ni_Glider_EPO_800mm_Kit_.html ... I was wondering if this would be a good motor for my application, or would I need something with slightly more power? I'm planning on using 2s 500mAh battery, with a 6x3 folding prob/spinner. Any help would be great. thank you very much
How does your plane go mdem5059? I'm just awaiting the last bits to build the same plane with the same motor. I will however drive it on 3s lipos as I found my Pearl (a bit smaller and lighter) is a bit limited on 2s. Cheers...
I still have yet to finish building it. Been super busy lately and the box the plane came with was missing some parts, so instead of the ****py wood pieces for the elevator puzzle i decided to get the pieces from the Merlin from towerhobbys.
Tried to get the items from HK but they just pushed around stupid emails wanting me to do a million things for $0.50 worth of items.
this motor has very low amount of thrust with a 8x6
my setup is a
HK 20a esc
Turnigy 2200mah 3s
no thrust at all i put on a 1200kv e-Max and so much more, really disappointed in this motor
really no suitable for a Teksumo
hola ,no importa que sea de 2s ,anda muy bien,solo que para mayor rendimiento tendrias que tener o adquirir una lipo de mayor amperaje ,por ejemplo de 1600 ma te dara mayor amplitud de vuelo sin dañ*ar la bateris,saludos
Consider a 3s Battery. Lowest voltage should be 9.3V. 100watt motor. P=VI or Power = Voltage x Current. or P/V=I therefore 100/9.3 = 10.75 amps. Theroeticly possible if you did not run it at 100% for more than the burst time of your ESC. I wouldn't suggest it though if you can avoid it because running a larger ESC will help prevent it melting on you and letting the tightly packed smoke out. It's amazing how much they fit in there. I personally run an 18amp ESC with this motor no probs.
It depends where you 're goin to fly... indoor / outdoor...
The maximum for indoor is 400/450Mah (2s) and outside up to 850Mah (2 or 3 s)
Just be carefull of the size battery/ compartement battery and also remember lighter it is, better it is !
Of course it also depned of your plane/heli specs *-)
Have a lokk on the top-right on HK website you have a topic about "Undertsanding Lipo"
motor conntors r very tiny
so i coudnt connect my 25 amp esc
so i used a 4 size conntcors
when i power up the motor with9x4.5 prop i dont get enough thrust
then the motor become very hot then stop working
every time i keep it cool down then itworks again
any ideas what would be the problem????
When we first started flying electrics, more than 15 years ago, batteries and motors were just adequate to sustain flight. We learned that the minimum powre to weight for flight is about 30 watts per pound. I flew two 7lb airplanes at 60 watts per lb, more than adequate for sustained flight. Today power loading in the range of 70 to 200 watts per lb is common.
So your 600 gram plane will fly if you can provide it with more than 75 watts of power..........but you will have little power to spa
Very good motor, I plan to use for my Piaget. I believe it enough power for my plane.

I've been beating this motor up all day everyday for the past few weeks on an infineon i3d and it's doing a damn good job! Spins an 8x4.7 prop nice and easy. This is a great motor for foamies if your model is 200-300 grams unloaded I'm running it on a 3s with a loaded 400g plane and it hovers with no problems! Anything over 8x4.7 gets to motor a little too hot, but that's to be expected for such a small motor. This and the 18-20A esc is a great match.

Pulls 10.4 A on a 11.1v battery with a 9x4.7 prop. Which comes out to 115.44 Watts. There's a little room to go to a bigger/higher pitch prop meaning that this motor is a little beast for the price.
