Designed to be a direct swap out for your .40 to .46 size glow engine. The Turnigy EasyMatch G46 brushlessoutrunner will provide more power and with its high efficiency, long run times. A quality motor, built specifically for planes designed to fly with a .40 ~ .46 glow engine.
Spec. Battery: 4~5 Cell /14.4~18.5V RPM: 550kv Max current: 55A No load current: 11V/1.9A Internal resistance: 0.021 ohm Weight: 303g (not including connectors) Diameter of shaft: 6mm Dimensions: 76x50m
I am learning to fly. New plane Sig LT-40. High wing.Weight 6.5 - 7 Lbs.Span 70 in. Based on Test Data shown for the G46 550 kv,60 amp Plush ESC. What is the best size prop to use. Expect my battery to be 4 cell 5000 mAh 25-35c - 14.4V. Not looking for acrobatics, but rather long flight time.
If you need more ground clearance, jut put bigger wheels on.
BTW - I have an LT40. I have an O.S. 46AX with a Macs muffler and a 12.25 x 3.75 prop. I have max throws on every surface and Power HD 1501 servos. This plane is a screamer and super aerobatic. I can knife edge all day.
Does HobbyKing provide any information on how many poles this motor has? I'm using eCalc (***********ecalc.ch/motorcalc_e.htm?ecalc) for calculating potential performance, and it is working on 10 poles.
I have the G46 550kv motor in my seagull boomerang 40 trainer.
wing span 155cm
wing area 3950 sq cm
approx flying weight 2.5kg
battery Turnigy 5s 4000mAh 30C
ESC Turnigy dlux 55A Sbec
Prop APC E 13x8
amp draw at full throttle 38 amps
approx max flying speed 105 Km/h
approx flying time (not flat out - 80% throttle) = 12 min
the boomerang flies very similar to the gas powered version. a little bit slower at top end speed but it would only be by 2-3 km/h.
flight times with the 4000mAh battery are around 12-15 min depending on how you fly it.
more than enough power to do rolls, loops, Cuban 8's.
i chose the 4000mAh battery because it is the approx weight of a full tank of fuel.
only thing you have to watch is with a 13X8 prop it only gives you about 25mmm ground clearance.
hope this helps
i can send you photos of my set up if you e-mail me.
I've got the same set-up with my Cub Doug**and yes that should be just fine. I've been running a Turnigy Trust 55 Amp ESC on a 13x8 and a 4 cell 3300mAh and getting about 14 minutes of scale flying on my 5.5 lb, 71" wingspan Cub. If it's windy then I limit the time to 8 minutes. My 55 Amp ESC handles the load just fine so your 80 Amp ESC will be more than good. Just remember to try and land on all three wheels with that big prop. If you come in a bit nose-down, you might prop strike. I've tried smaller props to avoid that but this motor seems to like the bigger propellers.
Due to ground clearance the biggest prop I can fit is a 13x8. The plane is approx 5.5lb. It's a high wing semi scale similar to a cub. I've installed a 4 cell 4000mah bat with an 80amp ESC. Will this be enough? Thanks in advance.target=_blank>winter beater
I bought this motor, and intend to use it on a kawasaki plane, bought here too, i want to use a 4s setup as i have already big 4s batteries for over planes,seem that this motor gives almost 3 kg of thrust on a 15 x 8 prop., i wonder if anyone as tried a 15x10. i would like to get the max out of it.. im using 4500mah 4s batteries.
hi sorry it's to go in a ripmax xclaim sport trainer it says 40/46 glow on the box ! and i'am looking for the hole kit to go electric motor esc and battery but just don't know where to start ? i fly ep models but now little about working out the power train ,cheers
muchas gracias Gary por su respuesta. Ahora, en 5 cell, que helice deberí*a usar? 15-8 es demasiado? y 4000 0 5000 mh para un vuelo spor-acrobacia de unos 7 u 8 minutos de duració*n, qué* me aconseja? gracias de nuevo. Saludos
Hola a todos: tengo un yak 54 para motor glow de 138 centí*metros de envergadura y unos 2.5 kgs de peso en orden de vuelo y deseo convertirlo a elé*ctrico, é*ste motor parece adecuado pero no sé* que baterí*a, hé*lice etc. necesito... por favor, alguien me puede ayudar? muchas gracias a todos.- Enrique.-
Yes, all motors will rotate in either direction, it just depends how the three wires between the motor and the ESC are connected. If the motor spins in the wrong direction, just swap two wires and it will spin in the opposite direction. You will need a RH and a LH prop. The one that spins clockwise(looking from the front) will spin the prop nut off if it is not tight enough.
Yes,this motor will be fine.I take it you wish to use a 4cell pack,if so then the 14 x 6 prop will give you 537 watts of power with a current draw of 38amps.If you use a 14 x 7 this will go up to 609 watts and 42amp draw,the 13 x 6 will only give 420 watts @ 29amps.Really for this model you need at least 500 watts for good performance.
Hi all, we recently bought 4 of these, can anyone please let me the recommended number of poles we should set our ESC at for these motors ? our setup: 5s lipoly, 70A ESCs, we are struggling with the correct programming of ESC with these motors, any help would be really appreciated !! Cutoff? Brake ? Throttle 1.1 to 1.8 ? Thanks !!
The motor configuration is designed to mount in front of the firewall. For me, I would use the " " mount provided with the motor and either bolt it to the firewall or use stand-offs to get the proper distance to the front of the cowl. The stand-offs can be thick-walled aluminum tubes and long bolts or even thick-walled plastic spacers if the lenght is short. Great Planes Manf. (ElectriFly) has several sizes of mounts available, the medium size should work for this motor but I'd check the specs to be sure it will fit your plane and the motor.
I think a 3S pack would be a little small. The Kv rating is low so you would not get much speed out of it. If you keep it below the 55a max rating, you only get about 550w which really limits its use. Even with a 670kv option, you should still use at least a 4S pack. I have a similar motor with 670kv and can turn a 14x8.5 and pull 550w. This might be enough for a 3Kg biplane but I'd consider using 5S and a 12x6 to 13x8 prop.
RobertW. it isn't my Mitchel it was in but I know the guy and watched it fly several times and shop at the hobby store he works at and talked to him. SOLID AS A ROCK would be the answer. Just look at thrust numbers it even made the Mitchel climb straight up. 4 cell is all you need
My setup with 12x8 for my JET was 8 pounds. I have a 6 cell 5000mA 45C for 8 min to fly. But for your setup its not a good idea to take my example! May be you are better off with an APC 14X6 elec with 4Cell 4000mA 45C for 10 minutes of flying. My example of the 6Cell was simply to inform people about the possibility of using the motor on the 6 cell in contrast to manufacturer's specification.
I have this motor and 4s 4000 Rhino just ready for the right plane to come along I was going to convert a Twist but it also fits a Katana 50 inch etc.
Mines arrived yesterday i gona try it in a few days looks awesome, but until i prove it i will write

I am impressed! will see how it holds up but it yanks my 4.5 pound plane around effortlessly, I get 13-14 minutes 3d style flight time running a 3300mah 4s batt and a 15/8 prop. motor is very quiet and smooth. using a plush 60 amp esc. they are well worth the price.
nice motor with loads of power... nice magnets which do not get damaged easily

Na Klasse! Ich habe aber auch fast immer das Pech, dass ich meine Bestellungen oft dann aufgebe, wenn die Chinemaenner (und Frauen) irgend ein Fest feiern, bei dem sie dann wochenlang nicht arbeiten. So geschehen zum Chinesischen Neujahrhrsfest. Ist aber auch ein Elend - sage ich Euch!

G 46 / 550: 03.02.2012: Installed this little monster in my Kyosho Edge 540. This is my best setup tested with my Watts Up: Zippy 5S 5000, APC 14 x 7, Turnigy plush 80, 20,4V, 51 A, 935 W - full motor. Half trotle 19,0 A. Can hover my Edge easy with 65pcnt motor, flight time 12 min - rest capacity 54pcnt
