NTM Prop Drive motors are rock-solid performance outrunners with tight windings, quality bearings, correctly rated magnets, balanced stator and flux rings plus they are QC checked at 14 points, from material processing all the way through to final dyno test. Because we design and build these motors completely in-house (from 3D/2D drawing to materials sourcing, machining, balancing, final assembly and dyno) we can completely control production and ensure product consistency from design right through to shipping the product to you. The removal of middle-men has meant we can drive better value to the market and retail these motors at factory (our) prices! All performance figures are real and tested on our own motor dynos.
Our QC engineers check and balance each motor before shipping to the HobbyKing.com warehouse.
I bought 6 of these for a Hexa. I have snapped the shafts of 2 so far with less than perfect (not very hard at all) landings. The weird thing is the motor that has snapped hasn't been the one that clipped the dirt.
your landings could have pushed the shaft upwards causing the motor shaft to dis-allign... even if you land softly but if the hex lands on the shafts you could have problems with your hexa setup all together... while you land, the shaft shouldnt have any contact with the ground anyway...
Would this be a good motor for a bixler 2? And if so what esc / prop config should I use. I already have some 2200 mAh batteries, and plane to fly with FPV equipment. I'll have a cyclops osd on-board so need to be able to carry some weight.
Yes, you can use this one. I am using this on my bixler2. About mounting on bixler, I use small cnc part bixler adapter. It is Aluminium motor adapter, better than the stock plastic one. It also has three mount position for different size of propeller. I use turnigy trust 45A esc, 7x4 propellor.
Changed my mind now using ntm 1800kv instead as has a bit of extra power for heavy fpv load. Just reverse plastic motor mount and fits fine, shouldn't need the cnc mount unless you're running a massive motor. I'm using HK blue series 60A esc, stock 7x5e prop and ntm 1800 kv motor.
