Here is my set up that works great:
TURNIGY Plush 10amp 9gram Speed Controller
Nano Tech 460 mah 25-40C 2 cell battery
6 X 3 Prop
Get * 6 minute flights on my 16" Snowball Foamy
Just change batteries and launch for next flight. Motor stays cool so far. Had about 25 flights on this one motor and no problems. Have a few extra motors in the flight box just in case but as I've said, great little motor and plan on using on my "Swappable" aircraft fleet.
I assume you mean which prop fits over the built-in prop saver? I have a bunch of different props, but the only way to make them work is to ream the prop hole out to fit. I purchased a reamer from Sears and mounted it in a cordless drill. It isn't perfect, but it works pretty quickly.
I tried a 3s on this motor with a 8x4 prop, I had been flying with 2s with no problems but wanted to get a little more power. The motor startede up fine on 3s but as I increased the throttle the motor started to stutter. Now the motor just stutters. The ESC drives other motors fine with 2s and with another ESC the motor just stutters, Did I fry the motor? Is it repairable? Why would 3 s fry the motor?
According to the specs it will work with up to 4 cells. The more cells you use, the higher the amp draw, so make sure to prop down (5x3 or 4x3 prop maybe?), and check your amp draw with a power meter. Mine had fragile wire connections, so I just hot-glued the wires to the stator to make it stronger. I've seen some mini to micro quad copters that use the 1811-2000kv motor, and since this motor is comparable, it should work fine.
I tried driving the shaft out, then pressing the shaft out** very difficult* finally bent the bell beyond repair. I've replaced shafts before (to use a prop adapter) with no problems. Can anyone suggest a better way? Heat, perhaps?
This motor is good looking and well finished. It also has good power for its size. Swings a 7035 without trouble. However, after just a few flights it started loosing "juice" and eventually stopped working altogether.
I rewound it using 15 turns of Radio Shack wire #30 (star termination) and it is working fine again now. The original winding was 19 turns of #31 or #32 wire (Delta termination).
Just did some testing with this motor. The Tower Pro controller that was giving me a problem on another motor also give me the same problem with this motor. I wired up another controller, same model and it worked fine. I remembered reading an article somewhere saying that the battery cable length was critical to proper operation of a brushless ESC. The newer controller had an overall wire length of about 6 inches. The one that didn't work was about 10" long. Once I shorted the length of the battery cable of the first controller, it worked fine too!
I ordered this motor and put on a 7x5 prop with a 2cell lipo at 610mah and a 10amp ESC. It turned for a bout 20sec then made weird noise and stopped. I turned off the throttle and back on again. it just jumps around for a second or two, then dies again. It could not have overheated as it was not on long enough. Did I hook it up wrong or something? I also tried the C1826 and the same thing is happening. Why
You may be over-propping this motor with this prop. Have you tried using a smaller one? I've also experience problems with the "TowerPro 9g w12A Brushless Speed Controller" with one motor that produced the "jerky" symptom you reported. Swapping out to another brand controller (all I had at the time) cured the problem. I'll be trying the same controller with this motor later today, plus I have a few more controllers I can try to see exactly where the problem lies.

Hi, i recieved the motor as advertised, but with a turnigy look. The weight is 14,3 gr. Including wires. The rpm (KV) without propeller is 2085. Measurements: (with Turnigy 6A ESC(high timing) and Eagle Tree Logger) GWS7035: 6,8V – 3,89A – 8390rpm – 168gr. Thrust – ETA 50pcnt (efficiency) GWS5030: 7,27V – 2,59A – 11575rpm – 127gr. Thrust - ETA 67pcnt
The fitting for the prop is wrong for GWS 6xxx or higher, only the 5xxx and lower will fit. G

On 2S-200 Li-Po (HTX) it draw 3.4A after 20 sek. with GWS 7x3.5 prop and the trust is about 140-150 grams. Motor plus 6A TURNIGY speed controller is only 18grams. I like this motor and plan to use it on my new 95g 3D model.

It's a nice small motor. Thrust is about 150 grams with a 7x3.5 GWS prop on 2Cells lipo 540mAh . Did not meassure the current but flight times more than 10 min possible. GWS 6x3 and 7x3.5 is not a straight fit. Put a M4 nut in in and drill it out to 4mm. After that the prop stays in place without trouble. 6x3GWS had a bit less of thrust but you get a a better throttle response and speed.
Used on a GWS Pico Tiger moth using a modified stick mount in conjunction with an 8A ESC, 7x4 prop and 2S 900 mah Lipo. Has enough power for ROG and in calm conditions will allow the bipe to slowly float around for about 5 minutes before power drops noticeably. Wiring is delicate so be very careful. I damaged it while trying to fit a larger 3S Lipo into the battery cavity.
