I just wanted to post up what I have been using this motor for. For the last six months, I've been running this motor on a Hummer, with a 1000-2200 3 cell battery, on a 30A esc, and an APC 10x5 propeller. I kid you not, It doesn't even worry me anymore, it is only warm after a few batteries! I'm not saying this is typical, but this is what I have been relying on, and is on my daily flyer. I haven't checked the draw while in flight, but checking the Amp, Watt, and volts on my meter, static with same set up, It maxes out drawing 17.3 Amps, 300 Watts, on 12 volts(3 cell)
If you're not familiar with this motor yet: I would highly recommend it, especially for it's (very low) price. I have used these motors on lots of /- 1-meter size park-jets.. Offcourse there are motors of better quality, but not at this price.. I fly them with a 6x4 of 7x4 prop.. They can handle that on a light plane..
Here is a sample flight with my RCpowers Mig-29, using this motor...
*David Yes, but be careful about over-heating the motor. I have 2 videos where I fly my plane using this motor with 4s with great results. I recommend a 5x5 or 6x3 prop with a 4s with a plane weighing around 650 grams. A 40-45 amp esc should be used.
I have three of these, and they are fantastic motors. Great power, well built, and inexpensive, what more could you want?

Great parkjet motor that delivers ample power at a great price. I love the sound this makes in my F22 as it buzzes overhead with a 6x4 prop spinning. Good for beginners as it gives you the power to get out of potential stalls and while still giving the speed an intermediate flyer would want.
This little out runner is no joke! Buy em when you can, they go really fast...

I just tested this motor and found a great combination to make this a high speed pusher! I used a three cell 2450 pack 30c with a Graupner 5.2/5.2 camspeed propeller and the results are 339 watts,31.5 amps full throttle at static testing. So when you're flying the amps should be a little less at full throttle. This combo makes my 42inch wing scream! This is a must have motor in your ****nal. Also the speed controller is a hextronik 36 amp esc which the settings are adjustable through your pc USB port which I can make more rpm's. I going to buy several more of these just in case they are discontinued. Try it you'll like! And the price is perfect...........
