Is it possible to drive this motor with 24V? In any case I wont go over 300W

Does this come with a prop adapter or any other hardware?

What frame are you guys using for this motor? I cannot seem to find a 42mm mount plate for this motor

Why the shipping is so expensive ? The motor cost 10$ and i need to pay 60$ to buy it, lol. I like hobbyking and everything here inside, I never took anything because the shipping is too high. For 60$ shipping i can buy from ebay a 10kg thrust motor...

Alright, so I have a scratch build 1500mm j3cub. With battery and all electronics (including battery) she weighs in at 1034grams. Will she fly with this motor spinning a 13x4 prop?

This motor seems to be very good for low cost big tri - and quad helicopters due to its large diameter. The no load current at 10V is only 1,A. Even at 20V no load is only 1,6A. The measured winding resistance = 0,77ohm. It seems possible to get 500-600gr lift at 2S=7,4V with a 13*4 prop at 7A. This is close to 10gr / W. This motor can also be used up to 6S due to the low no load current for other purposes. My motor had to be balanced due to an inaccurate bell.

I have been using this motor on a powered glider I build, with an 8 foot wing span (see uploaded video). I have flown the plane about a dozen times, usually with an 1170 prop (slowfly or std electric), with a 50 amp ESC and a 30c 4S battery. I have had no problems with the motor for this type of slow flying / heavy plane application. Note that the 5mm prop adapter has a threaded shaft exactly the size of the propeller hole. so, you cannot for example use a Master Air Screw folding prop without drilling it out. Also, you really have to tighten the collet adapter well or it will fly off.

Did not come with anything other than the motor. Brittle mounting tabs also. Great power though

Works very well with an 11x7 on the Hobbyking Spitfire. After the modification original setup makes the spit look like a sitting duck in memories...
