Turnigy Typhoon 500H Heli Motor 1800kv (500 Class) (USA Warehouse)
The Turnigy Typhoon is a very serious upgrade for any 500 size heli. Tight copper wire turns with high pressure pressed laminations make this motor very efficient and powerful. Users will notice the instant power increase and higher idle speed when using this motor & we suggest you adjust your throttle accordingly.
it says a 60 to 70 amp esc.i have a turnigy trust 70 amp running on 6s and it works fine but im not a 3d pilot. i would say to go for an 80 amp if you do any more than general sport flying because this motor is a beast.
I use a Castle Creations 100 with a Castle ESC, I did fly initially with the HK 100esc and found it was ok, but tended to not handly hard pitch changes. But there again I always use Castle just becuase they are very reliable and the USB programming interface, and field programmer are very easy to use...
I purchased this motor for a T-rex 500e build, when looking for a suitable pinion gear I discovered there were two types. I believe the stock 500mx motor came with a helical gear.should I purchase a helical pinion or will a straight toothed gear work as well? Thanks for any help.
Answered my own question, I need a standard tooth gear. Where can I get a 11T 5mm shaft Mod. .6 pinion? I only find mod .7 , everyone advises to use the 11t for this motor but they don't seem to exist.
hotshot .. how big is your quad frame? These motors are relatively big, have a 5mm shaft and require at least 65A for each motor so you need a frame bigger than a 550mm with matching motor mounts. The motor can size alone is 38mm and each motor weighs 170gm each. It has to be winding side mounted - there is no way to push the shaft to the bell side.
Yes this motor is WAY to BIG for the Bixler. Use the one for the 450 size.
WOW !!! This Motor has some Punch !! Flawless so far !! But also very New, so if this Power House holds up I will be thrilled !! Very nice Job HK for a Great Transaction and from what seems to be a Great little Motor for my HK500GT !! also tried it in my Align and had a heck of a Punch compared to an Original (you know what i'm talking about?) Motor for the Align 500 ! Just my thoughts at an early (NEW) Stage of running it, but seems to be built good ! I would recomend to anyone looking for some more Power for their 500 or even the 550 size Heli's !! For the Price you can't go wrong !! Nice for someone on a budget in the Heli World and not a full 3D Pilot, Sport Flying this Motor performs very nice as well !! ....BTW, I changed to a 12 Tooth Pinion on my 500GT and was a nice match, also 11 Tooth and had less strain on Electronics, kept nice and Cool !! Try One, can't beat this Price for what you get !! One more thing, this was part of an order from 8/12/11 and went across Country and on my Door-Step Early 8/17/11 3000 Miles Away !!, "5" Days !!! That's It !! Heli Motor and All !!!

I put this power house in a funjet.I had to hog out the fuse a little bit to give it clearance.I ran it on 6cell 45c lipo w/apc 4.75 x 5.25 man o man crazy fast.Right now its more motor than the plane can handle,I put CF rods the length of the wing top & bottom that helped alot but I need to make some alierons (stiffer)& upgrade my servos.Right now it will not turn if I give it full throttle for more than 1 sec. I had a ultrafly 6cell EDF motor in it before ,it screamed but this motor has way more power.I am using a 100amp esc nothing gets hot at all but I havent been able to fly

This motor simply cannot be beat-PERIOD!!! HK-500 11 t pinion-AWESOME power. Two summers of beating it upSTILL BAD ASS!!! I have also use this motor on a 45 in foam f-22 pusher jet
(3 1/2 lbs ) Unlimited vertical!!!! You CANNOT buy a better motor-ANYWHERE!
I received this motor in pristine condition. After soldering on bullet connectors I tested on my HW PLatinum Pro ESC. Wow this motor is a screamer and it feel like it has a lot of torque. I'm using extra soft start and spool up is nice and smooth. Throttle response it great. I might have to get a lower tooth count pinion. I'm running a 13 now and I estimated my head speed to be just over 3200 which is kind of high. I think an 11 tooth pinion would work optimally with this motor and being a novice I will not be doing any 3D, but when I'm ready the power will be there. Great motor HK, I love all the products I bought so far.
