I got this motor but found after running it for 30 seconds it gets harder to turn... im not talking about the magnet resistance.
Its like the bearings get tighter.... its sure to blow ither the speed control or puff up a battery to hell with the needless stress.
Rather disappointed actually
That doesn't sound normal. Contact online support about a replacement. They are OK quality for the cheap price, but you get what you pay for to some degree. Most of them work fine, but that being said, they do have cheap bearings. They need to be checked, lubed and even upgraded if you put a lot of flight time on these. Good luck.
I would make sure you are running an adequate esc, and not over propping the motor. Also don't go by HK specs for motors, 6x4e or 6x5e TGS is about as big as you want to go. Also if your esc is in a slower timing mode this may affect your motor, last, do a visual check and make sure nothing is actually physically impeding or rubbing against the can.
I run this motor in all my Bixlers and most of my scratch built planes with 7x4 or 6x6 props and 40A Plush ESCs . I fly them hard until the battery is warm and have never had a problem. Just don't try to run on a 4 cell. It'll smoke. The bearings are more than good enough for a $10 motor. I've flown them into lakes, trees and dirt and the only thing that seems to happen is an occasional bent shaft. Never a bearing. They're cheap, buy two.
very good motor upgrade for bixler I use with 45a esc and 6x4 prop with awesome results

Very good motor. Can perform with up to a 7x6 prop with ease, although it will pull north of 40 amps peak current with this setup.
Kudos to HK for making this product available in the USA warehouse! Now we don't have to wait a month to get this excellent motor from Hong Kong.
Makes a fantastic upgrade motor for the Airfield/FMS 800mm warbird series. I have it in my T-28 and love it: with a 40C 1300mAh pack, this is a 400W setup with a thrust/weight ratio of over 1/1. Pocket. Rocket.
this one here is the best motor that they have for mid size plane's great power and great price very strong motor! better get them when in stock cause they go fast,lol! if you want to know which motors are the good one's look for the one's that are always out of stock!!
