Just thought I'd let people know. I ran a 11x5.5E APC prop on this beast with a turnigy 40amp plush esc. Crazy power.
40amps at full with 410 watts of power. Really good but a 2200 battery will drain within 5 minutes....
I have decided I will run the 1020kv park 480 with a 12x6 prop. Produces 300 watts of power but with only 28 Amps draw. Won't be as crazy fast but I think this is better suited.
Hope this helps peeps
Hi Anthony, If the performance is a bit too "crazy" for you it can be toned down a bit by going to a 1-inch shorter prop or a lower pitch like a 11x4. Your flight time would increase as well. The problem with going to the 1020kV version is you haven't lowered the weight, just lowered the available power. As your skills increase you may want that power back, but it won't be there with the 1020Kv motor. Cheers, EA!
I've used this prop with a 11x5.5E APC prop before it was sweet. Didn't get really warm at all. I coupled it with a 40amp ESC.
My question though is will this motor be alright to spin a 12x6E APC? I can't see why not but thought I'd ask anyway.
Hi Anthony, A 12x6 APC is really a bigh jump from a 11x5.5. If this was the lower kV version of this motor I would say no worries, but I think the only thing you will gain with this motor is heat. I've owned 3 of these: smoked 1 (unsure why), wore out 1, currently flying 1. I found the 11x5.5 APC to be right at the top of the range this motor could turn without running too warm. I backed off to a 10x6 and guess what .... same thrust, lower temp, longer flights. This motor likes to spin fast so don't over-prop it. Cheers, EA!
I see. Okie and yeah I might try a 10x6 in the future. I was told a 12x6 would be good for 3d, I'm sure the 11x5.5 would be ok for 3d too?
If I want to spin the 12x6. Would you say the 1020kv of this motor is a good option?
Hi Anthony, Thanks for the credit. If you have a 11x5.5 then I would go with that for 3D, as you get wider/more airflow over the control surfaces. The 1020kV version of this motor is a waste of time ... 2/3 the wattage/power at the same weight. This 1302kV is the one to go with. It's a beautifully made little powerhouse that absorbs heaps of abuse and keeps coming back for more. I use it on a Yak55 3D EPP (850g AUW) and it's awesome. Cheers, EA!
Hi Tony, You can reverse the shaft, but be sure that the airflow holes aren't obstructed by the motor mount on your plane. This motor has incredible power, but will overheat quickly if it doesn't get plenty of airflow thru the bell. Cheers, EA!
Hi Tony, On a 3S with a 10x6 prop you'll get 1450g-1500g of thrust. Plenty for most aerobatics, but a little thin for 3D on that plane. Use a 40A ESC, as the motor pulls 28A or more at full throttle. I use a HK BlueSeries 40A and it's awesome for 3D. Cheers, EA!
Hi Benjamin, I'm using this motor on an 800g 3D foamie with a 10x4 prop. Performance is awesome, but full throttle amps are >32A. If you're going use the 30A ESC with the 9x7 prop, you may be pushing as high as 35A ... just an experienced guess. This motor seems to like lower pitch props. A 9x4 or 9x5 on the Pitts would probably be give plenty of thrust and nice long flight times. Cheers!
tested this motor with a red brick 30a esc and an 11x4.7 prop and 1800mah 3s 25c. the esc got pretty hot. should i use a higher rated esc and can i use another esc that will allow me to use a 4s lipo. thanks in advance.
Hi Travis, It's the 11x4.7 prop that's causing the excessive amps/heat in your ESC. A 30A ESC will work just fine if you don't over-prop this motor. I started out with a 11x3.8 slow-fly prop on this motor and smoked a Plush 30 ESC after just a dozen 3D flights. I backed off to a 10x3.8 SF prop and the plane flew faster, flight times were longer, and the ESC/motor were only warm. I think 10x4 is probably close to peak efficiency and anything bigger just produces more heat, not thrust. Cheers!
Hi Travis, At 2.5 lbs (1,135g) and a 6 ft. wing (lots of drag there) this motor would fly a Zagi wing, but not with a lot of authority or speed. You would be flying with the motor always pushing near its limit (1,300g-1,400g of thrust) if you're flying aggressive combat style and this would probably cause lots of heat build up. You would be better off going with a slightly higher wattage motor. Have a look at the Turnigy L3010B-1300. Cheers!
An 8x6 prop is a bit small for this motor. It has gobs of power, and turns a 11x3.8 prop effortlessly on my 800g 3D Yak 55. You might want to up the prop to at least a 9-10 inch. If the Decathlon you're using it on is the red PNF foamie, you're going to be heavy with this motor and a 2200mah. If it's the yellow/white balsa/ply Decathlon this will be a great combo. Cheers!
I am currently running this motor with the 2200Mah batts and the 8x6 prop ... brilliant ... Climbs vertically after take off and is now doing the largest high spped loops I could hope for. Now on my second design for the engine mount as it cracked under the stresses. Alos had to tinker with the main wing (On the Red foamie decathlon) as it used to move a bit, not now. Great combo and has really stepped the whole package up a fair few notches
Would be a perfect match for the decathlon. You'll just have make up an engine mount adapter.
Mount the battery vertical and the esc far forward, then you should be pretty close to correct cg without having to add lead
well worth the time spent ... my bro-in-law has the identical plane ... he's gona drop his sh!t when he see's how far behind his will be ... may even look for a reasonable 9x6 prop to get even more ... but will have to check engine mount again and all other parts due to added stresses on all parts ...
