I have this motor in a couple of my 3D machines and Angry Bird ... On a 7x5 - you can go vertical unlimited on about 400gr model. See the youtube link ... my scratchbuilt Mini Katana is 390 gr, winds are strong and blustery but she handles it well. I would not recc'd more than an 8x4 prop on this motor unless you have good capacity battery to supply it. 7x5 seems about ideal from my experience. The motor is actually the eMax CF2812 .... Very nice - does the job.

They quote 4S ... but I would take great care to not overload it on 4S ...

Here is a very short video of my setup using 4 of the CF2812 motors with 8 x 4.5 props (I wanted to use the suggested 7 x 6 props but HK UK don't stock them CW/CCW..... build list is in the youtube description ;-)) P.S. I am still very much a novice/beginner :p

Yep, these are great motors but I've been using 8x4 props because they seem to get a little warm when I tried 8x4.5. Still, great motors. All the best and Happy flying!

Which prop adapter I should use for this motor
 Jose Antonio 9 points
You can use a 3mm collet type propeller adapter in case the propeller won't touch the ground at landings (GON-D3T6 ). Otherwise you should use a 3mm propeller saver (OR019-00501-3)
 RonRC 4118 points
Hi Harsh, I've been using props that either have a 3mm props shaft hole or a 3mm prop shaft insert, running a zip tie through one of the 3 bell arms, and over the prop on the opposite side of the shaft. Each zip tie is capable of lifting more than twice the weight of the quad but will break off in a crash saving the motor. Hope this helps and Happy flying!

How did you mount propellers on this motor?
 RonRC 4118 points
Hi Trung, if you look at the video from 0:31 to 0:34, you'll see I ran the ziptie under one of the bell arms, over one blade and around the opposite side of the motor shaft. The props have 3mm prop adapter inserts in them as well. Hope this helps and Happy flying!

Thank you for your answer, can you show me the link to the mounting you have used?

Very nice build motor. Also power and efficiency is more than OK.
Tested with

V A easy to improve the internal cooling my modification of the three spokes. Simply abrade to bring them into a "propeller-like" shape.

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
