As you can see in this video, its possible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7Bkb4HPZn4
I'm going to use it on 4S to, but i think we just should be aware that it possibly could burn the motor after half a season. But when your ok with the financial risk of total ruin (burn the 25 Dollar Motor), then it will be a very fast set up...
i used this motor for 2 seasons on 4 s on a funjet whit a 5.25x4.75 APC prop
and still going strong
other guys on the club also using this motor in a pylonracer on 4 s now
this motor is stronger than you think

I bought a Turnigy 380L 2600kv some time ago to be able to use it with a 6x4e prop and it was rated 45A with this prop. When i tried it out with a 3S it draw a whopping 90A a full throttle! Sure it was a small tornado in the room but the motor got quite hot after only a few seconds and this current was also like 2 times max for the battey.
What the hell? Did they send me this 3200kv instead perhaps?
probably they did, its important that you use correct propeller. Prop for the 480s is 4,75x4,75 to 5x4,5 and 5x5. And also use at least a 60amp ESC and a high c-rate battery. I hope this answer helps you out..*) Cheers!!
Yea they probably did, have sent them and mail about it so i just have to see what they say and hope for the best, but both of these motors are out of stock.
Yea i know that it need a smaller prop but it was made to be used in a Easy Star where a 6x4 prop would fit perfect. A smaller prop would work as well i guess but it will sound so dam high at full thottle and i want the plane to be a bit quite which it would be with a 6x4.
It's screaming on 3s already! I think the rpm you get from a 4s battery would just make the prop much much louder or heat the motor, but you won't improve the performance. I use mine with a 6x4 prop in my MPX PicoJet and it is fast as hell! My suggestion: use a 3s battery so as not to burn it and get the maximum performance by optimizing the prop size.
How is this engine mounted? i am planning to use this at a plane that weights 500grams with reciver and battery, is this a good motor to get that thing go unlimited vertical? what esc would you recommend and what prop? i am using 3S 2200 zippy's :p
My test reveal this is closer to 2600kv than 3200.

Really rubbish for me. Put two of them in my Robbe Seajet Evolution. One motor was melted before the first battery was empty, where Roxxy Inrunners still work after being heated up to 90 degrees each time. The impeller has absolutely no effect and turns not nicely www.link
After receiving my turnigy-watt-meter i checked this motor wit a 5x5-prop (Hobbyking) and a 3C-Kokam 30C on a Turnigy Plush 40A. The motor takes 32Amps, voltage about 10,6V. So it might be possible to run it with 4C and a slightly smaller prop and an ESC about 60 Amps. I fly this motor in my Projeti with that prop and 3C-battery and it runs very impressive, speed about 160 km/h.
I am looking, too. Models like Slipso 400 or Speedster 400 would do, these are cheap planes build out of balsa, plans can be downloaded. These planes are for Brush 400-motors, but with such a thing these planes will go like rockets, i think.
My speedster 400 is ready now, i run it with a HXT 2835-motor (2700U/V), but with some changes (fuselage must be bigger) this motor will also fit. The first flight is a problem due to bad weather here in germany, perhaps i can fly the next year, perhaps next week, who knows? The speedster is easy to build from balsa-wood. target=_blank>Speedster 400
Hi Kaos. Sorry to say it's been (thanks to HK forever coming out with great new planes and gizmos all the time) a case of too many toys and too little time to play with them all. I just haven't got around to that one yet sorry. I expect it to be perfect for that Dago but can't give any opinion based on actual experience yet. Sorry, yes I know I've been a slack**** and should be flogged with barbed wire but I will get around to it one day, I promise, cross my heart
I think iff you have a 3S lipo and a 5.5x5.5 cam speed prop on it, this thing wil go fast. Did someone tested this, let me now. Only the fan inside the motor thakes also power away, less power to the prop :(, less speed.
I'm using one in a jet boat, which is "pusher" mode. I squirt CRC on the bearings after each run, and have been giving it an average of 3 runs each day, the boat runs in salt water. My impeller is high pitch, around 22mm. I get a little extra cooling to my one, because I made my mount out of non etched circuitboard material, with the motor secured to the copper side, and side flanges soldered out a way. The fan outlet blows on all this area, increasing the cooling efficiency. After a 3S x 2.2 amp hour run, the motor is hot, but I don't burn myself on it.
This would fit inside a 68-70mm fan unit, it says only for 3s1p, but will test my 2 when they get here on 4s1p as a 3200kv that can handle 60amp is a good setup for 600+ watts. I wouldnt say this is a 2W-20 equivilent as the windings are different and the 2W-20 is designed for 4s1p. My tests will reveal what it is capable of. The turnigy 2836-3200kv motor cooks on 4s1p but as this has a internal fan it should make a serious difference as this is very little cooling over a edf motor due to the lack of space between the housing and the motor.
Vicltruong is right, the impeller is there to aid cooling by drawing cool air through the back of the motor over the coils and out sides, this motor would best suit rc cars as they need all the cooling they can get
The impeller is used for cooling the motor, it is a tangential impeller.

Had maiden flight today with this 480S inrunner in a Robbe Projeti. It is equiped with a Graupner CamSpeed 4,7x4,7 and draws about 42A on 3S Zippy Flightmax 2200. It produces 650g Thrust and 162km/h Speed...........
I love this Motor, the Price is awesome compared to the usual Brands..........

I just love these motors. I did a nitro to electric conversion with one of these motors on 3s in a buggy. It flies, I have a Turnigy BEC connected and a cooling fan on the motor. I now have 3 of these and once I make some water jackets I am going to put the other 2 in a 1mtr twin cat hull. Great value for money motor.

Habe diesen Motor im FUNJET. 36A mit einer 5" x 5" und einem 2650 3S 30C.

I mounted this in my Funjet with a Turnigy 3600 30c battery, a Hobbywing 60amp esc, and a APC 6x4e and WOW it is the by far the fastest of the 3 different motors I have used in the Funjet. The other 2 were the turnigy 2835 2700kv and the 2835 3900kv. Im peaking 44amp draw at 514 watts. I waiting on 7 APC small props of different sizes to try on this setup. I want to get into the low 50A draw range since the motor can take up to 60A.
