Or do I have to buy separate prop saver for 3 mm shaft?
 BrianB192 1683 points
Hello Denis ,, You Have Options, I assume you using this Motor On Plane, and Yes, Plenty of 3mm prop savers. I would use folding Prop and 3mm type diameter holder Or Normal type . .,either way. you will need the adapters of some type/,.. Motor comes with what you see.

do i need an ESC to make this spin......can't i just connect the and - ends to a battery to make it spin?
 Leocopter 1021 points
Gokul, this isn't a brushed motor. In a brushless motor there is basically 3 electro magnets that are charged in a rapid sequence by the ESC. There is to physical contact between the rotor and the stator only a magnetic field.
 BrianB192 1683 points
The ESC IS the Next Component Gokul Son Of Goalcoo , Look for about 15-20 amp ESC it might go as far as 25 amp. but best stay with limits around 15 -20 Amp. and use either 7.2 that's 2s . or 11,1 thats 3s battery. If you wanting to build something what IS it you Plan. Because you can use 4 x this motor for Quad.

Hi Brian cast of Paul Walker , im planning to build a 24 inch wingspan F22 raptor...so please suggest me a nice ESC and propeller that will give enough power for vertical climb with this motor.
 BrianB192 1683 points
Gokul i choose 6x4.5 with 4 s 800-1000mah 45c-90c battery & lock tight all grub screws to prevent loss.
 BrianB192 1683 points
7x5,for 3s.
 Leocopter 1021 points
For unlimited verticals I d go with a D2826-6 2200 kv with a 40 A Esc (Blue series) and a 6x4 prop from Master Airscrews.
 Leocopter 1021 points
... for a 3 S setup.
 Leocopter 1021 points
If you want to use this motor : 3S setup, 7x6 prop and at least 20 A Esc. 25 A better.
 BrianB192 1683 points
Yeah any of that as I said we find Bigger prop means smaller ESC, to prevent over Heat on motor or the reverse hot ESC , Anyway,., Im using this On Quad Copter with average Specks.4s . Good to meet you My interested Friend, Leo what Are you building today, And hows your props ,did you try the folding range . they give different lift to average Genfan . Make sure you spot the right shaft size for your prop holder. ,, have a good day. Im working In prop protection devices. Using Carbon 2mm rod. ,, Many ways to do copters ,,Id like to discuss that, Anytime. thank you fellas.. look at the specials ON Props.

bro but the specs say this motor is rated for 15.5 amps? wouldn't 25 amps be a little too much for it? also does smaller prop means bigger ESC?
 Leocopter 1021 points
20 A OK. 25 is a little overkill ... but it won't heat up. The higher the kv rating, the smaller the prop. Usually high kv motors are more powerful and draw more current, thus the bigger ESC. I used these motors a lot with crashtesthobbies flying wings like the Assassin. They perform very well. The main draw back is that the base holds the motor body via 2 grub screws. That tends to get loose. Use M3 hex screws instead.

Bro may i know your facebook name..? You could be a great help for me..
 Leocopter 1021 points
No facebook ... but I m on RC Groups and MultiWii forums. Same nickname. Doing multirotors with Naze32 or Flip using Baseflight, Cleanflight or Harakiri. I'm rebuilding an Aqua copter with APM ...
 Leocopter 1021 points
For airplanes ... I m a lousy pilot so I build them tough ... mostly EPP reinforced with Extreme tape and laminated. Makes them close to indestructible ... check out crashtest hobbies for super tough FW ... and to learn good building technics...
 Leocopter 1021 points
Also, if your like warbirds, check out napolskim niebie (the polish sky) and you'll find great WW2 EPP warbirds ... I build Mosquitos, PZL, Ju, Me 110 ... mostly twin engines. I use this motor on a few of them ... they launch from my hand ...
 gokul 3 points
Bro the f22 raptor i built...it has Small defect ...the right vertical fin edge is placed 5mm ahead than that of the left one .in other words the the right fin is a little ahead of the left fin ....will that be a problem during flight?
 Leocopter 1021 points
Probably not a big deal. Worst case, you trim it out.
 gokul 3 points
Then one fin would be smaller woudent that create any imbalance? one more question....can this motor power my f22? Also do you have any old transmitters say 4channel.
 BrianB192 1683 points
Leocopter good to Hear it can go that high with ESC I heard it was Under rated . & you Already have Naze32 ,, mine will arrive soon, I really glad to Meet you, I Notice you Like to Help . you Must Must Be a really good fellow to help people as you do./ I can t wait for My board to arrive . I bean playing with all the standard types boards . got the thunder QQ the KH board ,and expensive DOS board to work out oneday, / So I had to go back to the start., Learn More , real USB setups. I got to do the full setup soon as that arrives. The software looks easy enough with Google chrome App. ,Baseflight - Configurator i has to test before purchase last week. So Soon I be asking you about setting Leo/ Yeah If its Ok I might PM you. soon, thanks . Yes we can try to Help Gokul if he is lucky. that's another story, & have a good day . or night .,, thanks,

@gokul : don't waste your money on a 4 ch Tx. I you like this hobby, you will build more planes and quadcopters. Buy a programable Tx like the www.link and a DSMX module. Or is you have the money get a Taranis. It's the best you can buy in that price range. @Brian : you'll get a lot of info on Naze32 in MultiWii forums. The Baseflight PID default settings are good for a 450 frame. I make my own 250 frames with a 3D printer based on the MHQ design. The roll and pitch P is around 1.6, 1.8. Flies like a dream. I think we better move the Naze discussion to the Naze page. Don't worry these boards are easy to tune, but you need good SimonK or BLHeli flashed ESCs. I also use the Naze in airplanes (with GPS and RTH enabled).
 Leocopter 1021 points
The Tx I mentioned is Turnigy_9XR_Transmitter_Mode_2 ... but I you can see the HK censor bots got to me first ...

bro i just got a 65 mAh 7.2 volt battery ....can i use it for this motor to build my f22
 Leocopter 1021 points
You need a 3S (12.6 V) lipo battery ... at least 1300mA.-1600mA. ... 65mAh is nothing ... your not going to power up much with that ... Look in the battery section for 3 S LIPO batteries. Get 3 to 4 cheap Lipos to start with. Don't let them get under 10 V ... Get a voltage alarm too. You'll need a good LIPO charger : the B6 charger is good value.
 gokul 3 points
Its 650mAh bro........But wait if voltage is the factor that matters then can i just use two duracell 9v batteries in series to get an added voltage of 18 volts..

doe high kv also mean greater thrust for the same propeller? Say for example which motor will give greater thrust if i am using a 1000 , 1200 ,1500 each fitted with a 7x6prop
 Leocopter 1021 points
18 v ? that's probably going to destroy your ESC ... plus 9 v Batts dont have the C rating to power these motors ... forget that idea completly. You have to read up on Lipo batteries, C ratings etc. Brian and I have mentionned that a good combo is a 3S LIPO (Nothing else) with at least 20 C rating (25-30 is better), a 20 A Esc and a 7x5 or 7x6 prop for this 1500 kv motor. That's it. You can go 2S, but you won't get the maximum power out of this motor. Gokul, your new to this hobby so read, read, read and read some more. Several people sell the Raptor 22 plans and kits. Look at their set ups. Go to RC Groups. Look for forums on your plane or similar ones : F14, F15, F18, Mig 29 ... You'll find loads of info on setups, builds, etc.

 Leocopter 1021 points
Yes it does but you have to respect the load limitation of the motor or it will burn up.
 gokul 3 points
Which motor wil have greater load capasity? 1200kv or 1500kv
 Leocopter 1021 points
1 kv = 1 RPM x Voltage. For 12 v : 1200kv = 14400 RPM, 1500 kv = 18000 RPM. More RPM = more thrust for the same prop.

I have multiple planes with this motor. The FC28-12 brushless motor is comparable to the BP-21 in performance. Perfect size with a sport 7X6 prop at 17A to carry a 15 oz plane at 70 MPH.

I like the motor but have had trouble with what I thought originally was bearings on three motors but ended up being debris on the magnets. This debris looked like fragments of a broken magnet but all of the magnets in the motors were intact. All of the motors came on the same order.

It's a little difficult to clean magnet fragments off of the magnets. The E clip was easy to remove and it was easy to remove the shaft. I used a dry cloth, toothbrush and air compressor and finally got the magnets clean and saw a drastic improvement in motor performance.

I will buy more of these motors but if they grind at all I will check the magnets and bearings.

Amazing power to weight on my stock stryker 134kph 7x6 apc style prop 30amp esc 2200mah 20c approx 15min flite time full power all the way battery get warm motor stays cool only down side as pusher setup puts load on the small bearing tends to not last long but for the money just buy some more for spares easy to mount on brushless mount put motor on outside and if you got a spare motor put removeable mounting plate on in side of mount and bolt together you wont be dissapointed good cheap setup
