can i use with 13x6 props to fly 3D?someone could inform me with the thrust props 13x6 60A plush esc?
 Graham 31 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.

Hey guys. Can anyone recommend a folding prop for this motor. I fly a Phantom fx-61 (pusher) so can go max with 10''. Battery - 3s 25C ESC - 45A. Thanks

I've been looking at folding props but they don't work particularly well in pusher arrangements. Its the way they angle inwards positioning the props closer to the frame. With the FX-61 I cut back the foam a bit at the back to allow more of a gap between the prop and the frame, it makes it slightly less noisy. There are a few folding prop makers Aeronaut are one of the better ones. Folding props are difficult to balance so its better to get good quality balanced ones. Like wise just search for a Folding Prop Spinner they come in a range of prices. In a pusher arrangement you should use a Folding Prop stop. Typically they are made of fibre glass or delrin. They prevent the props from folding folding to far forward so hitting the frame or back and crossing over. You can also attach small cable ties around the prop attachments on the spinner. I don't use a folding prop on my FX-61 I did think about it but it works OK without one even though I'm using a large prop.

4s 12x6 55 esc? Work?
 Graham 31 points
Should be OK. I'm running 30c 3300 4s 12x6 and 60a ESC. I don't think it would be pulling 60a

Would this be ok on 55A ESC?
 Faisal 21 points

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.
