NTM Prop Drive motors are rock-solid performance outrunners with tight windings, quality bearings, correctly rated magnets, balanced stator and flux rings plus they are QC checked at 14 points, from material processing all the way through to final dyno test. Because we design and build these motors completely in-house (from 3D/2D drawing to materials sourcing, machining, balancing, final assembly and dyno) we can completely control production and ensure product consistency from design right through to shipping the product to you. The removal of middle-men has meant we can drive better value to the market and retail these motors at factory(our) prices! All performance figures are real and tested on our own motor dynos. Our QC engineers check and balance each motor before shipping to the HobbyKing.com warehouse.
well using a 7 inch blade works even if it say 6x4 with 4s. the motor gets a little warm with a 7 inch blade. of course it depends on the pitch too. an 8 inch will be too much no matter the size of the pitch. do you have a meter to measure watts and amps? you can check the numbers of an 8 inch if you need to see. usually if a motor specs say 6x4 prop, go an inch smaller like a 5 three blade prop. i would say check it out for yourself. but for sure any 8 inch 3 blade even 2 blade will burn the motor. good luck
David, keep in touch as to your setup and what you decide to do. if the motor kv was like 1400, you could swing an 8 inch prop. still depend on the motor, brand etc. i'm going to order this motor and use a 7 inch prop 3s 40c lipo on my bixler2. at some point i'd like to do fpv. an 8 inch prop would be great to carry more gear. hopefully hk will have another motor with a 1400kv. cheers
There's not really an average, it depends on what prop your using, have a look at the prop test's above, they are only for 5inch and 6inch props and not all props are created equal, flight time depends on your flying style (how hard you are on the throttle), maximum power of this motor is over 400watts, I would be looking for a larger ESC 40-50amps, the original motor was around 130watts, your putting something like 3 times more power in a bixler2, I hope your ordering the 4mm carbon rod to strengthen the wings, your choice but I would be looking at Turnigy D2826 2200kv that's only 300 watts and a 7x5 prop, and I would still get the carbon rod!
Hi guys! Looking to upgrade the motor on my bixler 2 (I'm carrying a payload now) can I use this or the 2200 KV with a 8x4 or 7x5 and a 40 amp esc, as I testing my two motors today and both used up far less amperage than I expected so just wondering how this would cope with a 8x4 mostly, thanks :)
I test it only on ground max speed with 7x5E APC prop. Its became hot after 1 min continous full throttle is it normal? somebody check this motor with 7x4 or 7x5 prop with 11.1 v 3s lipo. what are the thrust data?
Hola querí*a saber como anda este motor en un DG1000 de fibra de vidrio las especificaciones del modelo dice 1200 gs, sabemos que es un glider rapido, lo llevará* bien?
Hi wanted to know how this engine goes in a fiberglass DG1000 model specification says 1200 gs, we know it's a fast glider, so get along?
Hobby King 2.4Ghz Receiver 6Ch V2 .nth you have a silver tongue,but that dose not change the truth.you made that question about you and i and i took the bait, but you missed the point(or chose to ignore it)so here it is a again .members and customers post their questions to get the best possible answer or answers, so on a recomendation (if taken)will make a choice.in doing so ,they will spend their money( let me repeat) they will spend their money on our replies.as i said i would not like to give advice on a subject if i didnt know for sure ,it has to do with my 1)integrity and honesty 2)members advice that i have taken ,which in turn has made my rc experience a happy one .if you would like to know more about who i am,read my reply to 1 of our members and look at the date ( hexTronik 24gram Brushless Outrunner 3000kv ).as i think many will agree. yes i red your last reply .saying sorry for your replies and nothing else really just shows your character.so i will choose to ignore your answer to the above question and just ask you to stop being a bully by putting words into my mouth that are not my own.nth just leave me alone and lets just say we agree to disagree and i would just like to add ,a big SORRY to everyone that i have gone off subject with the item concerned above .
DAJARAJA amps = watts/volts, so if the motor is rated at 438watts, 438/11.1volts (3s) = 39.5amps or 438/7.4volts (2s) = 58.5amps!, or 438/14.8volts (4s)= 29.6amps,... what propeller and battery you use will determine the amps,.... their prop tests above look ok to me,... I would buy if you hav'nt got one already is an amp meter, and try with your setup to keep it around 30amps. the prop test above for 11.1volts looks like you could run a bigger propeller easily to lift the power up, That 55 amps is the maximum/burst current, so as long as you don't keep it there for long it should be ok, I'd aim for around 30amps then your ESC is cheaper too! .....................my calculations are for running at full power, ie 438watts, I would not advise using 2s on this motor.
thanks for your reply Ral fRotten,easy calculation.no i dont have a watt meter(im buying 1) and their was not enough info(reveiws) for 4s lipo to make a decision on prop size /esc /static tests.the specs were also confusing me.just wanted to know i wasnt going to burn the (35 amp stock esc on plane this motor is recommended for).i am confidence now with info given from you and others to fly this plane with this motor/6x4 prop and have also learnt simple cal for working out watts thankyou. happy flying
Yea the old formula, W=VxI, comes in handy, With your 35amp esc I would still be wary of sustained WOT at 4s, and get a amp/wattmeter to check the real world current draw, theory is good but a meter is better!
Im not shure of the speed but its fast enough for the airframe , i ended up clipping the wing tips because there was too much flex even with a solid spar .
This motor will allow it to fly at 1.7kg easy and if your good you can fly in high winds no problem.
This dude down the road seen me flying in high winds and took his bixler out with stock motor launched it and the wind blew it away like a piece of trash, never found it again. haha poor young fellow.
The NTM range of motors are the best value for money ,
best motor for bixler bro.
Can I put these motors on a DJI F450 quadcopter with 30 ESC's and a 4s LiPo battery. I want a quadcopter to be lightning fast. I also want to use gaupner E props 8.5 as to not heat up the motors and for better response as i understood it.Thank you.
well that depends, use a 7x4 2 blade and it will draw 29~30A with that setup.
ESC rating 30A usually means peak power, it will handle the setup but keep in mind not to fly full throttle all the time.
For a 3 blade setup you need to upgrade your ESC.
I would not recommend a 3 blade prop on this motor, as it will burn the engine. The engine can only deliver 438 watts and to spin a 7 inch 3 blade prop you will need a lot more. go for the lower KV motor and make sure it can take at least 40 amps
Heads up, I purchased one of these and none of the NTM Accessory Kits align. Everyone is claiming it's the accessory kits, however the accessory kits align fine with a 750KV 28 series NTM, so it's most definitely the holes on the motor.
HI i have purchesed one of these for a edge 540. I have a 45 amp speed controller with a 4s battery with a 7*6 prop. Will this draw to much current and overheat the moter. It says 30amp max in the descripion but u look in the product config table and it says 55amp. Can someone help me. Thanks
I am also looking at this option for Bixler 2. People are recommending the Turnigy 2200kv, but it seems to me to be over too much power at a high energy (flight time) cost. Will this motor fit directly on the stock mount?
i put the 2200kv version in my bixler2 the wires are a pain dont even try drilling out motor mount to pass them through is to hard , i ended up cutting the foam just continue the line of actual bixler along top where motor mount is to cut etc , then you have to grind out a little foam for wires behind motor mount then use some epoxy and put it all back together makes for stronger motor mount as well
im still to fly mine but it looks solid
Higher-kv motors are not good for multirotor aircraft, especially heavy-lifters. You'd be much better off with the 1000kv version.
I am using this motor on a SuperNova scratchbuild. It weighs just over 1kg and i get vertical and its top speed is just over 100km/h. I really recomend this motor, the quality and finish is outstanding. I get 11 minuts flight time with battery to spare :) :)

I just did a quick test of the motor and just wanted to post some quick figures. Using a Castle Creation ICE 50 esc and with a 7X4 prop on I got 250W 25A at full throttle with a 3c turnigy lipo

I wish I could talk highly about the motor but unfortunately that's not possible. First flight was with a 4.7*4 graupner 3s lipo,went like a gun on my delta. Second flight same plane with a 6*4 master airscrew I got the burnt black wire. Congratulations I've cooked the new motor.Gone to God!!!

It's a very good motor, it's valuable. I fly 2200mah 3S, after 7mins it's just warm. I like it so much. My PC9 flys so fast with it. You have to buy prop seperately
