I'm kind a new in the world of electric RC. I'm a little confused about the batteries, this motor requirers a 14-18v battery but when I look for a battery a lot of them don't say the voltage instead I see 20-30C. Can someone tell me what this means and maybe recomend a battery including brand and part number.
The C rating is the ability of the battery to discharge current, The higher the C value the better. To get the voltage rating of 14V you would use a 4 cell battery, 18V is a 5 cell battery. A decent lipo c rating is 25c to 40c
What size prop would be correct when powered by a Turnigy 5000 Mah four cell battery? The ESC is a Turnigy Thrust 55 amp controller. The plane will be Super Clipper old time free flight plane. It has a ten foot wingspan and weighs about three-four pounds. This plane is basically a floater. The test data only showed a recommended prop used with a 18.5 volt setup.
find castle creations web site and go to their prop calculator. Input all of your information, select a prop and run the calculation and it will tell you the motor amps etc. Try different props until you get the one you like. The calculation is not what you will measure with a wattmeter but are reasonably close. Confirm by using a wattmeter.
Hello, I have the Turnigy G46 420kv motor and the Turnigy Plush-60A ESC. The ESC has A,B and C but the motor just has three black cables, so
1. which matches which? Are there any instructions? Can someone please help me.
2. what does it mean when there is a beep every 2 seconds? Is there a table to see what particular beeps mean?
The beep every 2 seconds implies that the esc cannot detect a normal throttle signal. Check the connection from the esc to the receiver, or if that doesn't solve the problem then turn the plug around at the receiver.
Yeah, Thanks, I finally received them, and as you say, they come with the hardware.
Have bench tested and they look good. Waiting for a couple of props and I should be ready to fly them. 4 in a quad. Should be able to lift a small dog!!
To convert a nitro model you will use the 4 legged mount shown in the right hand picture.This is screwed to the motor and then it is bolted to the firewall/front former.You may have to modify the firewall/front former to move the motor forward a bit so the prop clears the front or the cowling of the model.
Yes,spacers would be good,depends how far forward it has to come.If it is not too much then a piece of plywood or block of wood glued to the front would be ok,you could then just screw the mount to this.If it has a long way to come forward then a plywood box made up and glued to the former is also a good way.
This will work with either a 4s or 5s. As for the 60a esc, that depends on what size prop you are using and how much it draws as you rev it up. this can be measured with a watt meter that you can buy on Hobbyking for $20 or so. Very worth while. Hope this answers your question. Martin
i have try the motor with the 4s 4000mah bat, and got only 100rvs more than the 4s 1800mah , the motor rev with a 12 x 10 at 6400 rev.i need more power, any suggestion appart of going to 5s bat. i start to regret bying the bigger bat, its so heavy and i got not much more out of it.
Arnaudd, the only way to get more power out of this motor is to go to 5s. I have this motor. You will only get 6400 rev on 4s. You will get substantially more on 5s (aprox 8000 rev). The 925W listed is when using 5s batteries.
That would increase your revs by almost 38% more on a 3s setup. Using a 12x10 prop, you will produce more power than what you saw with the 420Kv motor. Since you are turning a 12" prop, the 670 would be the better choice. The 420 Kv motor is for 14" & 15" props. You need the high torque to swing those props. Hope this helps Arnaudd!
as anyone use it with a 4s battery,,, i have bought a 4s 4000mah. and a 50amp.esc.. anyone as a bit of experience with 4s. i plan to use a 12x12 pro.. or 13x12. if possible. i tried with a 4s 1800ma.. but not enough power with a 12x10 prop.. hope the 4000mah will make a difference.but i sorting the connection problem,due to a big difference of cable size between the bat and esc.
With the 70A esc and battery with a Turnigy nano-tech 5S 5000mAh 50C Lipo Pack 25 ~ how long the flight will be?
Note: I am in Brazil and my city is very hot so the 70A esc it will work masi cold, am I right?
Zahid, I have one of the G46 motors and I fly with a 5S 4000MAh 30C pack. I think the motor shows 4-5 cells and adding the extra 3-4 Volts may cause the windings to get too hot and possibly smoke the motor.
well e-conversion depends on Total flying weight and type of performance... you mentioned aerobatic so rule of thumb is 100W per lbs.... what ever the total weight of your plane multiply by 100 and you will get the watt needed for your plane ... choose that motor... e.g I have 6.6lbs of plane... 6.6*100= 660W motor needed for it.... well this motor can produce 1017.5 W ( volt*amps=watt) 18.5*55=1017.5...... YOU NEED TO FIND THE TOTAL WEIGHT OF YOUR PLANE FIRST TO DETERMINE MOTOR NEEDED..
esc comes with two wires for battery, black for - and red for , then the other side esc has 3 wires connect to any and after programming the esc on low throttle you can test for direction if its not the right direction swop any two wires around to change direction, hope that helps
3 wires from the motor connect to the 3 wires from thr ESC. the other 2 wires connect to a battery and then the last plug in goes to the RX. If motor spins in wrong direction then you change out any two of the three wires going to the motor.
David This motor will swing a 16x10apc prop on 5s flightmax 5000mah battery at 6480rpm to produce 786watts of power and plenty of tourqe as well. i think the recommended props dont do justice to this motor as it is a good www.link
Very powerful!! Zap up my 4lb plane in seconds.. This motor definitely replace a .46 glow engine.

This is value for money motor that will pull along my 80" piper pawnee
with ease using a 5s 5000mah flightmax lipo.the best results were obtianed using a 16x10apc, 786 email@example.com at 6480 rpm 15x10apc,668watts@36amps at 6700rpm.Iam using the 16x10 prop for
The best performance as the motor and speed controler are cool to touch

Great little Engine! Installed in a 7 lb Hanger 9 RV-8. Plenty of power, draws a maximum of 40 amps with a 15 x 8 APC prop. Using a 5s 4000ma lipo. Cruises at 12 to 15 amps. 15 minutes of mixed flight time with 25pcnt of battery left.

I put this on a 7lb high wing, swinging a 13x8 prop great motor, plenty of power, sail's at mid stick and is a beast at full throttle, even useing a 4s 2650 lipo, seems to be right at home at around a 4s 3000 lipo , Now I need to get another for a clipped wing cub

Great engine and a good building quality!
I used two of them to power a 50 kg tugboat in a scale of 1:25 fitted with two self-made azimuth thrusters with a prop diameter of 110 mm 5 bladed.
The engines can take the strain with no effort and the power consumption is very reasonable. 8 amps at 12 volt with a thrust of 4 kg each!
I'd say. Buy it!
