It's mentioned in the description - "*Motor comes with prop saver and mount."

Just got this motor. Yes, It comes with Prop saver and a mount. No ESC connectors though. you have to buy them separately.

Somewhat off topic, but is there any way to identify between the 1300/1500/1700 versions of this motor? I received some in a package with other motors... and the exact model is a bit of a mystery. Are there specific differences in magnets/windings etc?

I did the same thing and took them out of the boxes without labeling each motor ( permanent black marker will do but ir will rub off eventually). I bought the HK Rpm/KV reader and used that. Mine had 2 xt60 plugs and appear to be the wrong way round. Had to make an adaptor for some smaller ESCs with jst plugs. Not sure if its the wiring but one 1700 only showed 1650 but within 50 of the quoted KV seems to be expected because of the varying wiring quality. Once tested you will recognise some differences like wire insulation colours and the number of turns in the motor windings. You have to set the number of pairs of magnets ( 8 on all these) and test at maximum speed with no load ( no prop attached ) for a few seconds then shut down the throttle and press the M button. One of my 'suspected' 1700KV motors gave a reading of 1705KV and a top rpm of over 20,000. Looks good to me.

This is a good motor for smaller props sizes than the 1300kv and 1500kv versions. In my bench testing I got the following numbers:

(With a 3s pack)
APC 5x5: 10.82v, 6.7A, 73.5W, 7.1oz thrust
Gunther 125mmx110mm: 10.73v, 7.08A, 76.4W, 9.4oz thrust
GWS 6x3DD: 10.82v, 5.68A, 62.3W, 12.1oz thrust
GWS 6x5SF: 10.49v, 10.86A (!), 114.2W, 13.1oz thrust
GWS 7x3DD: 10.74v, 6.67A, 72.5W, 14.7oz thrust

(With a 2s pack)
GWS 6x3DD: 7.91v, 3.61A, 28.7W, 7.8oz thrust
GWS 7x3DD: 7.84v, 4.36A, 34.3W, 8.8oz thrust
GWS 7x6SF: 7.35v, 9.5A, 70.6W, 11.9oz thrust
GWS 8x4DD: 7.5v, 7.59A, 57.5W, 13.7oz thrust

There is a good range of performance options for lightweight planes.


Thanks HC!

This motor revs a GWS 8 x 4.3 @ 7000 rpm on 2s480 Tanic cells @ 8 amps. That gives you 300g of thrust.
Its a 12 Pol motor with 16 Magnets.
Weight is 24g. The performance of this motor could be improved by using smaller magnets, there is no gap between the mags. Coverrage of the mags should be under 80pcnt of the ring. The winding is lousy, my grandma can do better. "you get what you pay"

I have 4 of these motors. Need I say more? OK, I will. Great on sub 10oz planes, esp with a 8040HD prop on a 3S as a pusher on my 10oz flat jet. Keep the drag down and don't use more than an 8040HD prop. Even sounds pretty cool. We have 4 of these jets/motors at our field now. Can't go wrong if you use it on light foamie planes.

Looking for a little parkjet motor and ran it up on 3S 1000 mah (Hextronic) got 14000 rpm at 6.7 amps with an APC 5x5. The 5.5 x 4.5 was a bit much for efficiency, the rpm dropped to 13200 and the amps went up to 8.1. With a 6 x 4 the Pentium 12 began to loose sync at 10k rpm. I like the 5x5.
