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

if it fits I am sure you will be OK with the 40 amp ESC if you run it off 3s

can i use with 13x6 props to fly 3D?someone could inform me with the thrust props 13x6 60A plush esc?
 Graham 32 points
I can't tell you the figures but I have used a 13x6 with a 60A ESC on this motor with 4 cells. I've gone back to a 12x6 because its plenty. A 13x6 should be fine on 3 cells.

I am using this motor on EPP Edge 48 inch, 40 amp Turnigy plush speedy, Vox 13 x 6 prop, 3 cell Nanotech 25 - 50 2200 mah. Excellent 3D and more than adequate vertical, about 1.6kg thrust.

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

The earlier SK series motors were good. Hope these are just as good as their price has increased a lot.
