I don't know how HK can run this system with 8x4 props on 3s, as they will cook the motors. 1700KV out runner and 8x4 prop on 12V won't work. I need to run them on 3s, so the props are useless for me. I didn't have any revers props except 3 bladed 7x3.5. They keep the motors at about 60 deg C with 180W power consumption on 3 s. Couldn't measure the thrust so far. Also, the outer prop struggles with vibrations at even the slightest imbalance. The sound is captivating due to the different revs, quite like a twin engine. 2 x 12 A ESCs should suffice. What are your observations? Your comments invited.
Hello Iam planning a pushing delta wing plane and wondering what methods anyone has on mounting this on planes? any ideas on how to mount on plane? any tips or suggestions on an engine mount would be great appreciated thanks
Hi, wS. It ultimately depends on your choice of plane. I believe the Teksumo or something similar will be a good starting point. The easiest way is to get a 2.5mm aluminum plate from your local DIY store, cut it to size, make an 'L' shape of it, dril as needed and you have a very sturdy mount. I do not believe ply or wood would do the trick here. Great idea, pls keep us posted. Happy flying.
I strongly warn the users of this double engine ,not to use it with a single ESC supplying both coils !!!. Reason Why= At the start of running , at Lo RPM , each ESC manage it's coils switching according to a special soft ( when the un-used coil can't indicate any rotor position signal to the *-Processor ) so , two engines both can't have the same position , and the ESC signal just CAN'T drive the 2 engines = at Lo rpm it's an electric mess !! and mechanical as well when you try it !! Very bad in all case anyway!! So best thing to use this special and very interesting motor , is to use 2 cheap 20 A ESC . But much more efficient : mix the Th channels after Rx => I recommend the channel mixer HK Ref = SKU GW-V-Tail-J . You plugh the Throt channel on one entry / One Aux Ch (6 or 7 )on the other entry. And the 2 ESC on the 2 output. So you have throttle for the two motors , and the Aux Ch is used to trim the dissymetrical between the engines . Then , with yer own ears and eyes , you can find the exact synchro RPM ( very pleasant noise when they run synchro!!) Cheap and efficient , it's whant I use , since my magnets troubles . This devices allows to synchronize RPM overhead any kind of di-symetrical troubles ( magnets position after re sticking & so on )
hetzer for what you want to mount the props?for a quad or a simple heli.
It was a bit of a gamble with this purchase as I had no idea how to mount this Motor due to its long length and mounting holes in-between the two motors...but I decided give it a try to have something different from jets, twins, flying boats etc. In end I installed it on my DZ500 using few 5mm spacers and long screws, it just installed in a flash actually and the power is immense I was glad I gave it a shot despite the low score reviews on the similar larger and smaller BL systems here but this was just right size for the DZ500 with 2 25amp esc, changed the props to 7*5 3 blades the escs hold up nicely and power is smooth
