Hey Dan...i hope so,because i ordered the same one too!hahaha i was looking at the T2836-3200 - Turnigy 2836 Brushless EDF Motor 3200kv too,due to the possibility to fly it up too 5s...i ordered as well a 90A ESC,i hope it will work out!
I used it in a f18, with a 5 blade on 4s 2200 nanotech, with 45a esc. Speed was great, but motor only lasted a handful of flights, installed a new motor which died after only 3 flights....good power but don't count on it for reliability!
I can only confirm the grievous results. Bench rests with 5 blade edf (ID: HKEDF64), esc plush 60, 4s. Gradually pushed the thrust control stick of my TX. At the edge of about 750g thrust and 45A sound suddenly changed accompanied with the burst of smell of something melted. After this incident it can still work but with greatly spoiled efficiency I think. Hardly doubt that it can be used any more. So this motor is not rubust. Using it on 4s is waste of money. While my friend uses the same kind of motor but 3500kv on 3s and get a lot of fun for many months without failures.
Hey everyone. I'm hoping some of you may have some advice for me. I use this motor in my original Stinger 64 with a five blade unit and a 4s 1800 mah lipo. The following has happened to me a few times now with this jet and it is pilot error..... In mid turn It does a little flutter and nose dives into the ground. The first time it happened I was using the rudder only. The second time it happened I tried to bank and yank with the same sad result. It does not happen every time I turn but rather seems to be completely random. Just when I think I'm getting good disaster strikes. This is my only jet and my only plane that behaves this way.
It sounds like a high-speed stall. Most people think a wing can only stall at low speed. However, if you look at a lift vs angle-of-attack plot for ANY airfoil you will see the lift coefficient drop rapidly anywhere from 10-15deg AOA. It's too much AOA that causes a stall. Try not to pull too hard in turns and carry a bit more speed to reduce the AOA. All too often I see beginners pulling crazy hard during turns, and this is the typical result with a high performance plane. Well done for seeking help. Best of luck.
Thanks I'll try longer turns. This is supposed to be a very capable acrobatic model and I was doing rather large turns when this happened. I will keep your advice in mind the next time I fly the Stinger 64. Thanks Straight Up.
Sounds to me like a wing is warped or bent, maby glued on slightly at a different angle. I had a similar problem with a global hawk, every time I turned left, it went into a spiral straight into the ground!
2200 4s 35c nanotech, motor died just after I placed this comment, installed new motor which lasted only 3 flights. Amps/watts were under max recommended due to throttle restricted on tx, must have got 2 dodgy motors, good luck!
I've got this motor with a 50amp esc and a 64 edf 6 blade. I'm debating on which battery to but with this set up? Do I go with the 3c 45c or a 4c on the low c's? Since I've read that this motor can't handle a 4 cell??
if I remember right, it was about 540 watts. Something like 38 amps or so. I had it in my maxjet f/a-18 and it was just about unlimited, but have since gone with the aluminum unit. A buddy of mine now has the 3500 setup..
Alright thanks! I'm still thinking of what to do. I've got a couple of options* Stock 64mm 5 blade EDF Turnigy 2815 EDF Outrunner 4800kv for 55/64mm at 3S. Orrrrrrr the Cyclone Power Turbojet 64 CS450-4500-30EDF (pw-rc ****) at 3S or 4S. Last option is way more expensive of course, even more expensive than the plane originally was. LOL!
Limit the amps drawn..I've burned one of these up with a 6 blade 64mm fan on 4s..3800 kv on 3s is going to have you running full throttle and pulling high amps on a 70mm fan just to stay airborn. The can length is a little too short to give good numbers for that app. sorta like running a .40 engine on a .46 plane...it'll do it, just not as well.
Tengo instalado este motor en una EDF de 64 mm con 7 hé*lices bateria de 14.8 (4s) 2250 35/70c y ESC de 70A, en un jet T-45 ****link La potencia esta perfecta, despega del suelo en pista de cesped y hace trepadas verticales sin problemas, pero el tiempo de vuelo es muy bajo, entre 3:30 y 4 minutos, quisiera saber que hacer para volar mas tiempo y no incrementar en demasiado el peso del modelo, probar una edf de 6 helices podrí*a ser la solució*n??
estan usando mucho jugo de bateria para mover 7palas..yo tengo el mismo motor el EDF PRODUCT ID: HKEDF64..es la misma marca de tu motor y le va perfecto pero solo conseguiras de medio a un minuto mas..o compras una bateria zippy compacta PRODUCT ID: ZC.2700.4S.25..pesa casi lo mismo y mide hasta menos..son las nuevas..ojala te sirva
depending on the fan housing some are different i used one supplyed with plane,the seven blade fan housing doesnt work. i used one of these motors for replacment and found i had grind away the inner housing where the motor housing slots in and bolts up but dont grind away tooo much because you still want the motor housing to sit level and centre just anoth to sit flush in the fan housing with some plate groves still left job done works sweet
Nope totally doesnt. I bought 2 of these for the f-14 kit and They dont even come close to fitting. The EDF units that some with the F-14 are really designed for inrunner motors. I didnt see any information about that when I bought everything so I hope this helps I ordered some motors from Don's RC that had some extentions to work. I also ordered HXT 2445 (370L) 3790kv Brushless Inrunner which totally work. I just got impatient waiting for them to come in.
Well, I might be wrong, but this is my 2cent:
- Electrical power doesn't mean mechanical power. So, when they say 520 watts, I guess that's just the maximum intake ELECTRICAL power that it can consume, and not necessarily the true power that comes out of it in means of thrust.
- Also, the drawn electrical power depends on the load applied from whatever you plug in into the axle. What kind of fan are you using? I use this motor into a VASA EDF 65mm on 4S A123, and it never got over 350Watts.
The current drawn by a motor depends on the mechanical load that it is driving. A motor that free runs draws very little current!
If your motor draws less power from the battery than the stated power it is because your fan does not require any more power. It might have a smaller pitch fan or it might only have four blades etc. When a manufacturer quotes the power, it is either the maximum power allowed, or it is the power that the motor drew from the battery on their fan.
I've bought 2 of these motors with the 64mm fan which is recommended. I run em with 60a turnigy escs on a 4s 5000mah lipo for testing.
Now after I installed them properly I test-run them but when I apply full power the motors block and show sparks. 1 of em died.
I don't understand what's happening, I used everything that's recommended for this motor.
Does anyone have an explanation for this?
Thanks in advance.
i have the same problem and i think the sparks were produset by the scrathing magnets. i think this motor is very ***r quality. if you are looking for a 64mm fan try motorturbine 640 PRODUCT ID: D64102 this one works very well and it is dynamicly balanced
I would not advise to neglect the factory recommendations. Since the use of 3 cans instead of 4, entails not only the loss of power, but also increase the amperage and load control, lower the flight speed and shorter time of flight.
Not moved into boats yet myself but these motors are designed to work in an environment with a very high airflow and I'm pretty sure they'd overheat and demagnetize the magnets if not make that magic smoke. If you real want to use outrunners in your boat I'd be looking at some of the helli motors. Most if not all of them have some sort of turbine or impellor arangement built into them to create their own cooling airflow.
If you click on brushless motors in the menue up further on the left of the page it opens up a list of sub categories and you'll see helli motors have their own group. Not knowing your power or rpm needs and weight limits makes it hard to recomend a particular one as best but an example would be Turnigy Typhoon 450H 2215H Heli Motor 3550kv (450 class) This is close to the revs of the one you're looking at with probably similar power that will cool itself in a low airflow situation and is 34grams lighter.
je recois le mien la semaine prochaine je pense qu il peut fonctionn en 3s , l'amprage sera minime ainsi que le nombre de tour mais si on le prend pour une sur propulsion il pourra remplir ses fonction avec une 3s qui reviendrai a une configuration normal d'un jet
at this moment i have a problem with this motor it cant come to high rpm at once, it takes a few seconds and after a lot off stuttering it go's tryed 3 ESC already all the same whats wrong? thanks willem
tried all settings on the esc the best settings where high timing but still not good tried another esc no its running smooth but this one is only 40A and thats not enough which one do you all recommend? thanks for all the answers
I think you need to check the PWM settings on the ESC and then also the timing settings. If the ESC's being used are not able to adjust these settings then that can be your issue. I hope it works out!
iam using this at my arttech F18 and it flys over 120KM/u it makes wonderfull sound with 64MM edf only thing you have to use it with 4S great motor and nice quality tip: use good ESC because of high RPM and arround 500 watts
Output Power: 520w
Max Current (A) 35
Max Voltage (V) 15
Recommended model weight: 600-800g
Recommended model fans: 64mm Fans
All of the above are listed on this item's page, and they should be more than enough to give you the answer to your question.
Stand by man... Mines coming... Im shoe-horning it into the Blue Angels F35 jet HK sells which BTW is AWESOME... Though up the ESC to 45Aw/BEC and run a 4S Li-Po. Only reason Im getting this baby as it ticks the boxes as far as stats go and IF HK are on their money then 1.1kg of thrust will not hurt one bit !!
hey charlesd you don't want to put this motor in a gws fan unit. The gws fan blades are soft and flimsy. It will just use mass power and give no thrust belive me I have done this. I like gws stuff but keep it small and light, like the gws stock brushless 2030 3900kv that gws sales with the 64mm fan unit. anythig too big will just suck Amps, weigh it down and will not fly well. Good Winds to all.
You should try a run on the ground with smoke so that you can see the air flow and compare with a normal one... I guess it's better for the airflow. Due to the Coanda effect which says that at high speeds the fluids including air tend to stick to the surface in proximity, there should be a good, clean, center focused airflow going out with this kind of motors.
2 thumbs up!
I used this motor on Mirage 2000 jet. 1300mah/4S/Turnigy 30-40c/60amp turnigy ESC/7-Blades 64mm EDF. Top Speed 80mph on a fly by.
