Im using this motor on a combat wing with a 2S battery but its to weak for it...puls 3.5Amps with a 5x5prop....I tried this on a 3S battery and its much better, plling 5.5Amps...Do you think it will burn the motor if i keep like this? If i use a bigger prop like 7x4 on 3S it stays hot like hell, pulls more than 6amps and i think its to heavy prop for it...
I have got this motor for a Mini Skywalker. Other components are
HobbyKing 12A BlueSeries Brushless ESC (Tz12A), GWS EP Propelle 5.0x3.0(GWS-DD-5030) and four 3.7g servos, Zippy Flightmax 800mAh 2s/20C Lipo. The motor worked well (at least it looked like) if prop was not attached. As soon as the prop is attached (via supplied prop adapter or prop saver), the motor did not work. It looked like too much weight was on the motor. It turned for a second and stopped and then repeated it for a few times. It came to a full stop after a few times turning like that.
I am not sure what was worng. The ESC is set to default settings. Any help is appreciated.
The setup works well. I did a ground test with full throttle all the time for about 10 minutes before maiden. The ESC got just a little bit worm. The airplane flys slowly and is perfect for beginner. You can check out youtube.com/bmsweb for a similar setup and a maiden fly with the airplane.
Brushless motors will try and turn what ever you put on them - so if you put an 8x6 i=on it it will do its best to turn it as fast as it can. So keep you battery as a low capacity, your speed controller as a hig capacity and hope that the sum total doesn't overload the motor itself. Just keep it steady and don't use full power for too long too often. Hope this helps
I'm not familiar with the Teck Sumo, but I used this motor as a replacement in my HK mini cub. I'm getting around 400g of thrust with an 8x4E prop, 10 amp ESC and 460 nanotech. The motor survived a pretty good digger when I failed to pay attention to my pack voltage, so I would give them high marks for durability as well.
I bought two of these. One of them was bad right out of the box. It had a broken wire inside, so I rewound the motor. The motor worked, but was too weak for what I needed it for. The other motor was ok, and I'm using it on a 5 oz indoor foamy I designed. It works great. I've got a couple more of them coming, it'll be interesting to see what they're like. When they work, they're a good little motor. I can't judge a whole lot based on one motor. We'll see after the other ones arrive.
