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.
srepfler used it on 3s with 7x5.5. I don't know if the weight of the wooden prop will adversely affect it. I also have a 7x5 and 8x4 prop coming along with motor. Will test it with an ammeter if it comes close to the max current 50A limit.
Roger , no I never run an 8 prop because it doesn't clear my fuselage on the bixler ,
I had this motor on my radjet with a 6x6 on a 4s caring a go pro and it hammers ,
You will have Good thrust and flight times with 8x4 I recon
Yes it will work perfectly on the bixler2 and no modes needed, it will fit the stock motor mount. But you maybe need to make some adjustments by sanding the inner walls of the motor hole. Yes the stock motor really sucks, don`t use it. And Use a minimal 40amp ESC and you have a great flying Bixler2 for a long time. Hope this answer helps and please credit me*) Cheers!!
How about putting 4 of these motors on a f_450 sized quadcopter...can you do that...will it be fast ? i need someone to tell me please it its a good idea for fast speed and high climbing acceleration. Thnxxx.
Im looking for a better replacement motor than the suggested
hexTronik 24gram Brushless Outrunner 3000kv for the wing wing - ordered 3 of those, and they all had issues. Can anyone suggest a reliable motor in this kv range? I'm concerned this one may be too heavy. Thanks!
These motors and the NTM 28 3000kv are very powerfull for the weight 89grams but put out 755 watts on a 4 cell with 4.5x4.5 prop ,they are also very durable, i still fly with my first motor and its outlasted multiple crashes and 3 air frames, still pushes my radjet to 230kph easy.
Top Motors !!!!!
wow ok 7x6 tgs prop, 3000mah 3s, drawing 50amps, putting out 550watts and over 1.0kg thrust. pushes my 1kg 950mm epp BAE hawk vertical and doesnt break a sweat. very nice and also very quite for the power. loving it!
yes u can. i did it on my diy divinity 2 flying wing. 1 problem though is that it doesnt have a groove at the end of the shaft for the c-clip to hold. but since i'm using it as a pusher, i just let it be cause the can wont fly off the coil due to the pusher configuration. to be safe, u can use a wheel collar and lock the shaft in place.
You dont have to reverse the shaft!!!
You have two options:
1.: swap over any two esc wires and the motor will spin to the other direction.
2.: Buy the accessory pack, and it has a shaft mount that can be mounted on the non shaft side. Thats what I do, and it works great.
I would like to use this one for my Bixler 2 but, can i use this esc "Turnigy dlux 30A SBEC" with this lipo " Turnigy 2200mAh 3S 30C Turnigy nano-tech 1300mah 3S 25~50C ??? if not, may be this esc "TURNIGY TRUST 55A SBEC Brushless" Because i already have this lipo and i dont wanna buy a another one ... Thanks everyone!
its better to get a watt meter and check yr amp draw if using the 30A esc. but if u dont go wot most of the time, i think 30A should be safe if u use 5x5 prop. the 1300mah 3S might get very hot if u use on this motor.
If you use one of the smaller props like the 5x5 or 6x4 then the 30amp will be ok and a 2200mah battery will give you around 5-6mins using full power all the time,so cruising around you should get at least 10mins.
The NTM shafts here don't appear to come with the clip. If you look up Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 2836 Series Replacement Shaft Set I think it's the same clip. (definitely looks like a different shaft though) Product ID 192000013
I have the same motor and had a look at the clip. It's definitely the type that comes with product ID 192000013. They have them on e b a y but they are expensive. Heads up RC also has them but they are out of stock. Look for the type pictured with product ID 192000013
Awesome, should be good pace too, I was running a old 'funfighter' motor on it with great results but it packed it in today after wringing its neck for to many flights! :(
Thanks for the response....3 ordered.
I have this motor and a 50A Birdie, which should give me a max of 40A continious.
The motor is rated 28A with a 6x4 prop which I have.
I have a 2200mah 40C Turnigy battery, which should supply up to 88A (right?)
But it would be nice with a couple of extra batteries, and turnigy 2200mah 20C is on sale this weekend, would it supply enough juice? A max of 40A and a motor that should draw about 28A?
$5 a piece is crazy cheap!!
28A is for 11.1V rating...try to consider some gain in current draw if it is full charge...still 20C can do the job..just try it..
1 thumbs up!
Amazing motor. Running this on the clouds fly aka floater jet. After some fiberglass reinforcements, this motor made my plane into a hotliner (sort of). running a turnigy 60 amp speed controller with a 40c 2200mah battery and a 6x5.5 prop.
Mounting as pusher: Used a dremel to cut the shaft and shave it down. kit doesn't come with any collar for reversing shaft. The accessory pack screws on easily and the spinner is easy enough to use.

Ordered this motor to fix to my Bixler (with a custom motor mount). This motor is very smooth and well balanced. You must purchase the accessories pack if you wish to mount to a pusher aircraft, otherwise the prop shaft will be facing the wrong direction. Prop adapter on the accessories pack is a nice addition and is fixed to the outrunner end of the motor. Great quality alternative to Turnigy motors. Highly recommended.

UnMatched Power for Price, I will be Getting a few more. Just awsome performance. I have nothing else to say, its just an over all great motor. Try it out and find out for your self. Setup was this motor, HK 50 amp plane ESC and Trunity 4 cell 2200 battery with 6/4 prop. pulled around 40 amps at full throttle static. and produced 28000 rpms stalled or still movement. ran in plane for 6 minutes and motor or ESC was barly even warm if warm at all. Thanks for the ever improving products hobby king!

Alright so i've not flown it yet but here are my static tests on the bench with this motor on my funjet.
I'm using a WattsUp watt meter.
6x4APC prop 3000mAh lipo with 70pcnt usable means i have 2100mAh at my disposal (ie: 2.1A usable power).
So at WOT im getting 409 Watts at 35 Amps 12 Volts and a flight time of 3.6 mins and this is wide open throttle.
At half throttle im getting 144 Watts 12 Amps 12 Volts and a flight time of 10.5 mins.
Here are the www.link say thats pretty darn good. I know what half throttle flying will be like on a funjet and 144 Watts is pretty decent flying plus 10 mins flight time? Thats killer!
I'll love it and when ever i feel like it I can punch it to WOT!!!
so there you have it!
I hope this data helps anyone considering this motor. hope this helps you guys
