An excellent motor for planes up to 220 grams (8 oz) using 2 li-poly cells. Very lightweight at 19 grams including, with an integrated prop saver for APC 8x3.8 SloFly or APC 8x4 E propeller and firewall mount inbuilt. Great for small 3D planes weighing around 6 oz, or aerobatic planes up to 8 oz. Use with a 10 Amp brushlessESC and small 7.4V lithium batteries in the 400mah - 800mah range. The motor features a 3mm hardened steel shaft, dual ball bearings, integrated prop saver.
Spec. Model: A2204-14 Cells: 2-3 Kv: 1450rpm/V Maxx Eff: 74% No load Curr. .3A Max Current: 7.5A Weight: 19g Int. Resistance: 550mh Dimensions: 27.6 x 11.5mm Recomended Model: (3D 220g or less) Recomended prop: 8040/2S or 7035/3S
This is similar to the AXi 2203/52 or 2204/54 Use a 10A ESC with this motor.
Here is a video of my "golden hawk" 30" wing running the Turnigy 2204. On 3s it's a little faster (can go veritical with a lighter battery), but on this day I was running it with a 2s 2100mAh zippy and 10A hobbyking esc. Worth noting the 10a esc is not enough when running 3s.
There plane hovers * half throttle on 2S. I would have to see that to believe it.
80xx prop and 2S best setup. Not IMO
3S to much for 10A ESC. Not IMO
Good motor. Yes
Having flown both 2S and 3S and finding 3S wins hands down i did some tests to prove www.link Zippy__________3S____2S____2S____2S
Thrust * 50% throttle___133____95____87___108
current in Amp_________1.87__1.59___1.33__1.88
Thrust * 100% www.link 3S battery will be 8g heavier give or take but you will get 100g more thrust.
7035 prop is a couple of grams lighter than 80xx props.
Higher C Nano-tech battery gave very similar results for 50% thr and 175g thrust,
but gave 5 to 10g more thrust at 100% thr with the 8045 drawing 7amp. An extra
1/2 amp for a small gain.
wonderful indoor motor! I have this motor on a fancy Foam Yak 55. Quiet, powerful, perfect. Running and APC slo-fly 8x3.8 with Rhino 2s/360 gives me 7-1/2 minutes of pure fun.

I bought this motor from another shop, at almost double the price.
It's a perfect engine for use on indoor foamies. With a 2S 620 mah HXT lipo and a GWS 8*4,3 I have onlimited vertical on my 170 gram (6 oz), and long flying time(If you fly with not to much throttle, you can easyily fly 8-10 minutes with this combo)
It pulls about 6A at full throttle

Very good motor for the price. I get 230g thrust with a GWS 8x4,3 prop, 2S 400mAh Polyquest lipo and a 10A turnigy plush BESC.

I have purschased one of this motor. I'm using in a 85cm F3P with 190g and i have a great vertical hit a GWS 8x4.3, its the best prop i have tried. With a 2s 460mah i flygh all about 8min in a hard 3d style, in f3p this can up to 10min. Its an great motor, the price its beter too. Im very satisfied with this.
