I use it on my Bixler 2 with 7x4.5R three blades prop in standard motor mount and 50A esc(larger than needed) on turnigy 3s2200 lipo setup. It makes the Bixler 2 very fast if you need it. You can hear the motor sound about 30-40 meters !
I don't know if the motor is really warm or not as it's wrapped in the epo in original motor mount.
I only could tell you that external side toward the prop spinner is little bit hot after flying about 5-6 minutes.
I even fly with 2 blades on a 3 blades propeller(the 3rd blade broke a few seconds after launching) with a lot of vibes and less power too, but it works faultless about 3 minutes until I landed. I replaced the propeller and saw then the motor was not damaged by the vibes.
Hi, mine is 7x4.5 Three Blade Counter Rotating Propeller CW and CCW Rotation - Black (1 Pair)
Produit ID: 157000042
Don't use the orange version as the blades are too soft, one blade broke while flying. Blacks seems to be more hardened than oranges and are ok.
Plenty of power, after all I can't compare with included propeller as I didn't mount it.
Kept in mind that 7x4.5 three blades is equal to 8x4.5 on two blades props but the drag is bigger with 3 blades than 2.
You can also use external motor mount option to install an bigger motor with lower KV with a bigger prop but be warned it also increase drag too.
At high speed my Bixler 2 was wobbling from the wings, In the newer version I am building, I have to reinforce wings with adding another carbon rod.
Beware this plane has not made for speed neither a real glider, not a slope soarer.
IMO It's an middle plane for begginers with FPV capabilities and easy to built.
i just received this motor , and i was testing it with 40amp turnigy pulsh esc , and it got hot after starting it for few seconds even without mounting a prop , so i'm wondering if this is normal?? or something wrong with it ??
and after this i tried it with 50amp redbrick opto esc , and it got hotter than before , and i smelled like something is burning .
help plz ....
Check all connections, continuity, polarity, and lipo specs. Not normal to have quick heat build up if running for a few seconds. Next, check your ESC programming. Read manual then reset to default and then set your parameters from the default starting point. Incorrect configuration can lead to unnecessary energy loss (heat) and shorter flights. Your 40A ESC should comfortably run with your motor and remain reasonably cool throughout a flight.
the thing that makes me thinking of something wrong , is that i've tried starting it with many different esc's , but after reading more reviews in forums , i found that many people just asking about same thing , and more experienced people replay that it's normal .
Check wires. I have been using these motors several years. I just tested and power on after 1 minute it was totally cold. With slightly throttle after 2 minutes still cool. There is no need to change any timing when using Turnigy plus or AE ESC. Just connect and go! This is also quite crash resistant! In my video pizzabox using this motor and running with 4s battery.
i use this motor with 3s 2200mAh 20C 40/50 ESC hobbyking and 7*35GWS DD, very fast motor, a bit hot but this motor is good

This motor is the nut's.i fitted it to my TB-20 with a 8x6 prop & a 3s 1300mah nanotec ,it now fly's faster than some of my duct fan jet's. awwsom mt tb-20 has no limit vetical it pulss off all outside loop's with ease my full up weight is 750grm with some renforcement.& i am getting 850grm of frust...well worth the cost.Nice one hk.
