Hi can yo run this motor on hobby wing 80a esc
 whightdagon 7 points
maybe cus its an 80 amp motor so u should use an esc of over 80 amps cus the motor may draw more so the esc will work but might not last long.

It depends on what you are going to put it in. If it's a lite vehicle that's 2wd, probably, but wouldn't recommend it. If it's a 4wd vehicle or is kinda heavy like an sct, no. The motor will draw too many amps and burn it up. You want to give yourself some head room. Your car can go 100mph, but if you run it there all the time, it will also burn up. I have a 120 amp esc.

has anyone attempted this on a 5s? maybe not seeing as you cant just run in series, but just curious
 Skillz 49 points
No but I wouldn't. You never want to push your electronics to the max. They just burn up. Maybe 4s once in a while but this isn't a mamba system.

Is this motor waterproof?
 Skillz 49 points
Not technically but DC motors in general are "water proof" due to the nature of the motor being DC. However, if you run it in water, the bearings will lose their grease and rust out. Can you drive it in a little water? Sure. Would I submerge it? Wouldn't recommend it. I have gotten lots of melted snow on mine and I just make sure to put a little WD40 on the bearings when I'm done with it.

Brushless motors are in fact a/c motors. That is why they have 3 wires to control them. Three phases not as in dc motors. They are inherently NOT waterproof or resistant.

I paired this motor with the hobbyking 120amp esc in my rc8be and i love it. Good speed very low temps and great build quality. For the money you cant beat this motor.:)

Bought this for my RC8B to convert to E. Bought the Turnigy Digital Card & 2 Turnigy 5000mah 14v Lipo. Ran a fast config for the ECS an I'm thrilled with this setup. I cant wait to see how this thing is going to perform after it's adjusted with Digital Card. I highly recommend this product!! Had no heat issue either!!

The Bad: received the motor with a skuff on one side of the can, purely cosmetic and quite minor, but still damaged. The motor wires are TINY! The wires on my 1/16th scale vehicle are larger, aswell the wire is only flexible for about the first inch near the motor end. Otherwise they are extemely stiff and cannot be bent, not the greatest if your trying to route the wires to the esc a certain way. Aswell the 4mm bullet connectors are a bit small for a 1/8th scale. The good: Price! These turnigy motors are an excellent value! If I had to do it again though I would recommend the Turnigy Trackstar motor if you dont mind spending the extra 10$ though.

I have purchased 3 motors from Hobbyking to test out in my slash 4x4. Picked up an HK 120amp esc and program card to test them all out on the same esc. The RC Scanner motor fried in about 8 minutes of drive time on a 4s Turnigy Nano-tech 5000 mah 35-70c battery. The Turnigy Trackstar got hot and the esc got hot on the same battery, and this Motor here gave me great run time with minimal heat on both the esc and motor. This motor is a great price and great quality, I highly reccommend it.
