I am going to use this motor on skywalker 1720 with 4S battery. Is 10x6 prop ok for this motor?

hi , i am very new in this hobby and i m a bit confused about motor prop combination. what maximum MAH range battery i can use with my 30 amp esc? plz help me...
 meadowhay 1287 points
Hi Sadek. Don't be afraid to ask questions...we were all new to the hobby sometime! The mAh refers to the capacity of the battery, so you can use whatever size will fit into your model. It's theVOLTAGE (V) that will effect the CURRENT (Amps) draw of the motor and that will depend on the load (propeller size) that you put on it. The simple equation is Watts (output) = Volts x Amps. So...if the max current you can use to keep your ESC alive is 30A and the LiPoly battery pack you intend to use has 3 cells (3s) or 11.1V then the max power you can expect (using the correct prop) will be 30A x 11.1V = 333 Watts which is great for a plane weighing around 1.5kg. What model are you planning to put the motor in?

Meadowhay, take my gratitude..........very usefull information for me.could you please tell me somehing about motor prop combination? there are tons of them..and i am not sure which one to pick for my home made model having 50 inches wingspan and weghing 500 gms (without battery).thank you.

Hi Sadek, only too pleased to help. If you use a 9 x 4.7 slowfly type propeller you could expect around 900g of thrust (more than enough!) and a flight time of 10 mins plus all for a current draw of 15 amps. If you have a search for Ecalc you'll find that you can put all of your numbers and motor/ESC details into that and it'll do all of the calculations for you. it's an excellent tool!

Hi, I'm thinking of buying this motor for use with 13x6.5 prop using 3s lipo. Which speed controller would you recommend please ?

Will the HXT 85/36 mount fit this motor? I am confused because the mounting holes does not seem to match this engine's description . EX This engine bolt hole is supposed to be 25mm , but the HXT 85/36 bolt spacing is 15/16 mm ? Yet it claims suitable for Turnigy 35mm motors ? Whereas the larger 110/45 seems to match the 25mm hole spacing . Am I reading the specs wrong?

I am thinking of using 2 of these motors for a 52 inch OV10-bronco with 3S battery and 11 inch props ( necessary for ground clearance) . Will this be ok ? See this link: ***********hobbyhangar****/hhbaseline_002.htm Hobby hanger recommends 1000KV motors. Whats the difference between this one and another of the same series with slightly higher KV? Does it really matter ? Also which of the HXT CF motor mounts will fit this motor? Tks

On 11" props you will reduce the current load (stick with the 45A ESC's though) though with two of them drawing power it might be better to have 2 3S cells in parallel using a Y connector (unless you have some big capacity cells with high discharge ratings) Cooling the rear motor is something you would have to think about as its out of the slipstream, you may need a functional air scoop for it

I use this motor on a Multiplex Funcup, this motor realy rocks, starts on 1 meter and goes vertical accelerating.
I normaly use 3 cell 3600 batt, and it tows easy gliders up to 2,6 meter, and I also have towed a 3,2 meter and 2,7 kg F3b glider.
I use a 4 blade 6x10 prop from hobbyking P 51.
or 13 x 4 prop.
13x4 prop
3 cell 30 Amp 349 watt
4 cell 48 amp 766 watt
(And the nose on funcup go into wild flutter)

4 cell 53 Amp 864 watt

12x6 4 blade (P51 prop)
64 Amp 989 Watt
(And no flutter in fuselage)
But the motor wont last long with full power.
On this video i use 3 cell

Multiplex Funcub setup - SK3 1000 kV 670w Turnigy Plush 55a Turnigy 3S 2200 weight 41 oz. Xoar 12x6 Absolutely the best Funcub setup I've tried to date! In fact, so much fun, I rarely fly my other Funcubs! Flies slow, flies fast, hovers, everything :)

Ordered this for my Multiplex Acromaster, lost my old motor due to a bad motor mount. Can't wait :)

used this motor in Extrem Flight LASER 48 EXP With 13x6 prop and 2200mah battery good power, enough for torque roll but keep your aircraft light...! quality seems good one problem, prop hub is not textured and will rip and turn when you try to tighten your prop bolt.
