I installed it in my FMS P40 with stock ESC and 7.4v 1300mAh WOW! It can drive an MAS 8x6x3 prop...great power..about 3 minute 35 seconds at WOT
If you upgrade to the 30A ESC and 11.1V 1300mAh battery it'll fly darn near straight up :D
Unfortunately, I also could not find a replacement shaft in stores. But there is another solution that I have used several times already. Take a cheap screwdriver of suitable size (3mm). Cut off a piece of it and use the Dremel producing groove for locking washers. In this case, you must use another prop adapter/spinner. For example PRODUCT ID: Spin-30-3
This motor doesn't come with scews an nuts . For the wilga 2000 you should use a lower kv motor like the "2822 1200Kv motor" .
The shaft of this motor is really difficult to replace if you break it so i wouldn't recommend it if you are a beginner . :)
hi!, could anybody give opinion? planning to buy this motor and use it for my f22 scratch built jet (600g approx)with this set up: 30amps esc, 7x6 sport prop and a 2200mah nano 35c-70c 3s batt. I know that a 2200kv motor will do better for jet but want to invest in a motor where i could also use in some foamies like cessna and the likes. Thanks in advance guys...
How did you determine this motor can only handle 600 grams? My current motor has 1400 kv and pulls about 18 amps in my powered glider weighing 900 grams. I don't know for sure but I think my current motor weighs about the same as this motor. Shouldn't it work?
8*6 is good too. I use the 8*6 3 blade and it works like a charm. I 1st thought 8*6 2 blade would be better than 8*6 3 but when I compared them, I had more speed and climb rate with a 3 blade 8*6. This is a really good motor, I've abused mine heaps and it still goes. So getting another one :)
No the specifications say Max Current (I) is 25 Amps. So you need a Esc of at least that current rating if the motor is to be run at maximum speed. A 30 Amp Esc should be ok but you need to know what your motor is drawing from the battery at full power and thats why a Wattmeter is a very good investment. The Amps drawn from the battery will vary with propeller size.
Max current is 25A, but for a prop such as a 7x4 this motor would draw only around 8A on 3-cell operation. This would be good for a plane weighing up to 500g/15oz and with a 1000mAh 3-cell lipo battery.
