Anyone know what size the prop shaft is because i bent mine and need to replace it, if that's possible??
Last question... What prop adapters can i buy to use instead of the ones that come with it. Thanks!
I have not received it yet but anyone give me some thoughts on this motor in a 1245mm cub it's about 2.5 lbs.i ordered some 9/4.7 slow fly props to try on it using a 3s 1800 30c pack it had a dynam 28-15 1100kv in it small really weak motor shaft I want to fly low and slow and have enough pull if I want to hang it on the prop any better set ups ??? thanks
Now running 8 of these on 2 different H-quads. Excellent motor, smooth bearings and quite. The only complaint is the included prop adapters are far from balanced but considering the price I don't feel that's enough for less than 5 stars across the board. Motor itself is fairly close to balanced and nothing severe enough to jello a hard mounted GoPro.
Tested 3 different props with a 3300 3s1p 45c nano and SimonK flashed Blue series SC
8x4.5 SF prop, 12.49v, 10.33 amps, 126.48 watts, 8700 peak rpm, .40 Kg (.88#) thrust.
10x4.5 SF prop, 12.43v, 15.70 amps, 191.4 watts, 7290 peak rpm, .68 Kg (1.50#) thrust.
10x4.5 Carbon Fiber prop, 12.25v, 11.51 amps, 138.24 watts, 7560 peak rpm, .73 Kg (1.62#) thrust.
Hi everyone, quick question. I'm new to flying and built a slow stick to get me started. I ordered this motor with a 20A ESC and 11.1v 2200mah battery. It sounds really smooth and powerful with a 10x4.7 prop. So is this setup overkill for such a light plane? And if so, any suggestions on what I should be using? Ive yet to fly it because I'm scared. There Ive said it!
hi george I think motor is just fine but you are a little on the heavy side for a slow stick because of the 2200 mah batt. try to avoid heavy (I mean really heavy) dives or you may end up with folded wings (just like me :)) you may try with 1300 mah batt if you have one already otherwise just give it a try.
Turnigy L2215J-900 Brushless Motor (200w)
the esc's are: HobbyKing Red Brick 25A ESC (I would recommend different speed controlls like the Plush, red bricks tend to glitch once in a while)
3 cell 2200mah 20-30c lipo
Nice and clean construction. I believe that they are the perfect match for the scratch built frame that I used them with. It is a Hexacopter Y6 configuration, and being a test platform it was not light "at all"... These motors combined with the HobbyKing SS Series 18-20 Card Programmable ESC's was phenomenal! I am now moving on to my next build and these will be used in my new Quadcopter also!
Please help me out!! I've already managed to break two of the little motor mount plates that come with these and I can't find anywhere to buy them separately online without buying 5 bucks worth of hardware and prop adapters with it!
Any help would be really appreciated!
Some more test results, I think I killed it, It still works but it smells bad!. On a 2200mah 4s and a 8x4.7 GemFan prop and HK Blue Series 20a ESC It drew 16a and made 225w, I ran it for 3 min and it got up to 138deg. F. On 3s 2200mah and GemFan 10x4.5 prop and HK BS ESC it drew 16a and made 160-175w, I ran it for 1 min. and it got up to 134deg. F. I also ran it on 4s 2200mah with a 9x4.7in. GemFan with the HK BS ESC and got 250w max. and drew 16a, I ran it for 4 min. straight just under 3/4 throttle and got around 165w and drew 13a and temps were 134deg. F., On this setup it had the most pull at lower throttle settings and amps and temps were very manageable, I think this would be best as long as you kept full throttle bursts to a minimum. I also tried it with the 9x4.7 on 3s 3300mah NanoTech and got 125w and drew 10a. Also all temperature data was taken with motor not running and at the base of the motor where it was the hottest.
Hei, i use this motor no my tricopter with 10x4,7 prop.and 25 A esc I tested this with full throttle. I pull 50 amps and 500 watt. Those that mean that 1motor pulls 16 amp and 167 watt, and that i am in the safe sone??? Thanks
debay, read his question again carefully. He has a tricopter with 3 motors and, I assume, 3 ESCs. Total drain on the battery may be 50A and 500W but each motor (and 25A ESC) is pulling 16A and 167W. Therefore, he is indeed in the safe zone.
I used this motor with 20A/3S2200mah/10x4.7 for 1.1kg Quad. Easy to take off & hover at half throttle. Now setting up this motor for Hexa, 20A/9x4.7, can I fly it with 4S 2650mah? ESC support 2s~4s lipo.
Hi tymbo, I had to replace a bearing on this motor a while back and I'm pretty certain it takes 3mm x 7mm x 3mm bearings. They're pretty much the standard size used on 3mm shaft motors. I ordered the following: PRODUCT ID: 155000087. Cheers!
I have the mx400 blades which are 3mm diameter. Is there a prop adapter for this or can i just super glue it straight onto the motor shaft? Will it hold and then i can just dispense with the prop holder. Ideas? Thanks
I have the Hobbyking yak 54 EPP. I currently have the 2205
Version of this motor and it's too weak. Would this be a good motor for it and if it is what prop should I use.
I am having a hell of a time getting this plane to fly right.
Hi Tyler, I have 2 of these motors and have the Yak54 EPP as well, but haven't used this motor on the Yak. The Yak weighs in around 500g AUW and I can verify the 820g thrust rating on this motor. It would be a good match for the Yak. Use a 10 inch prop to ensure max airflow over the wing for 3D. A 10x5 would work fine on this motor. Cheers!
10x4.5 e APC PROP is a pefect match for this motor , it will pull 14 amps and will pull a 500gram model verticle no probs at all . it pulls my extra 330 foamy verticle and that is 600grams . dont go any bigger on the prop , it serves no benifit . i tried an 11x4.5 , and a 12x4.7 . they both had less rpm and thrust than the 10x4.5 and drew 18 amps ( max) amps is a no no for no benifit .
Does anyone have some actual specs on Props thrust and Power? Im putting this on a homemade flying wing that is around 830g AUW with a 44g 100w 1100kv motor that produces 550g of thrust. It flies but has limited climb rates. I have two different props, a 9x6 folding and a 10x6 folding. I plan on using the 10x6. Im guessing thrust right around 800-850g? It will increase my Plane by 30g so almost a 1:1.
I think this is a quite low kv motor for the plane and for a 9x4 prop in particular. I measured 8A with a 9x6 prop and 12,5A with a 10x6 at 3S. This is not much. However the EPP Yak is quite light. It should be possible but you may try a larger prop. A 30A ESC is OK, a 20A may suffice. Keep the plane light that is very important for slow flight ability. The motor itself is of good quality.
The KD-A 22-20 has 1000kv and 85g weight. The L2215J has 900kv and 61g weight. With the same prop your probably will not feel a big difference. The KD-A 22-20 can be used with a 11x5 prop. Unfortunately, I do not have this model myself. That is why I cannot give you a clear recommendation. Just have a look at the discussion and review section of the plane. There are several setups given.
tenho o mesmo motor, 10x4.5 é uma das melhores escolhas, e com uma 2200mha ira tre render um bom tempo de voo.
1 thumbs up!
Great motor, has many many power, perfect for quadcopter, with four of them is possible carry on the quadcopeter a payload of 5-600gr without any problem, perfect for normal digital camera or videocamera.

For a video, look up the words "moisdude hexacopter teaser" in YouTube ok.
OH: by the way, I also bought the 5.4g 200mw transmitter receiver set for doing FPV on my new Quad... :-)
Thank you HobbyKing!

Very nice motor which I'll use for my multiwii tricopter...
Build quality of mine is great.
Btw, thanks for the fast shipping, HK!

Used on a Quad with 10x4.5 props
Motor quality itself is good, but the provided prop adapters are badly out of balance / not straight, making it next to impossible to get vibration free running, even with perfectly balanced props.
