Come to find out this is a drop in mod with the 300X. This motor will add about 15% more power and doesn't vibration like the stock motor does. Use a 11 tooth pinion and the stock ESC. . Hard to beat for $8..
Hey guys, I bought an APC 5.5x4.5 prop. On my 2 cell lipo and my 55 amp trust ESC, I got 640 grams thrust.motor was normal/warm, not hot at all. On 3 cell it pulled 730 grams thrust. Got quit warm, but not scorching hot. I love this motor! Hope this helps.
Ok guys, I have thrust specs. All APC props, on 30 amp HK Red brick ESC, and Zippy Compact 1800mah 25C discharge 2 cell pack. 5x5 400grams thrust, 6x4 600grams thrust, 6x5.5 also 600 grams thrust, 7x4 800 grams thrust, but on 7x4 my ESC and lipo got hot in seconds at full throttle. (I'll try my 50 amp Esc on 7x4 prop and post results. As of now I have been running 6x4 prop with no issue and I get 10 to 15 minutes flight time at full throttle doing aerobatics. 20 minutes if Im just having fun. Hope this helps! ! Ill keep you posted.
No, not with its original shaft, becuase of the taper to 2.3mm.But you could if you replaced it and use a 3mm collet spacer and 3mm shaft . That is what im going to use on my new shaft. The 2.3mm taper makes it easy to bend on the slightest prop hit. Im tired of straightening it out. And the little C-clip falls off. So ill replace it with the collet and 3mm shaft.
If you want to use this motor for example in easy star or bixler kind of model, it would fit. It is indeed pusher in that sense. However, keep in mind that with this rpm/kv you will fry your ESC like I did if you only put original propeller. This motor is rather for EDF or small prop applications then 7x4 or similar.
Sorry wildhawn, you obviously havent done what you are advising. Because this motor shaft tapers from 3mm to 2.3 mm. It is impossible with original shaft. I did post how I did it. But you must install a 3mm shaft that doesnt taper. I do have this motor and use it on a constant basis, and have posted my test results. Hope it helps
sorry there buddy but your talking out your ass cuz i have done it. its a simple task you do have to file a keeper ring grove but thats a easy peasy thing to do if you got the time.. i do it to my turnigy 2836 3700kv motors to use them as pushers on large combat wings and this motor is just the same
Hey wildham. There is no need to get ugly and call people an ass! We are here to help each other out. I dont know if youre just a kid, or maybe just act like one. Either way, i dont play kids games..... that being said you are correct about the fileing a clip groove on the shaft, but (A) not everyone has the tools,skill or the patience. (B) it is very "UNSAFE", If the groove is cut too deep, the shaft will break, and send the prop flying at high RPM into your face or others. That is the reason i dont do it, even though i do have the tools, patience and SKILLS. I opt for the easyier and SAFER method, and suggest it .thank you
I noticed other versions of these 26-xx turnigy motors come with motor mounts, but since they're different size than the normal ones used for 28-xx & so many others, I don't know which to use.....
Can someone please post a link to the appropriate accessories pack, or motor mount used for this motor please?
U can actually use the standard aluminum mounts that most 28xx motors use, & the only difference with these is that all 4 holes are setup for the inner holes of those mounts.....so Ijust drilled out the other 2 further holes, & haven't had any problems.....
Also, I swapped out the shafts in these for the.3mm x 45mm replacement shafts for one of the ntm motors that only cost $1.10 each, & they work great! I would recommend finding a different shaft that's just slightly though (3mm x 50mm * least), since the 3mm x 45mm didn't leave me much to attach a prop adapter.....
But it does work with no problems so far!
I've had this motor without testing it for a while. I finished my project cub, and tried motor on the table. Gets very jerky on start up, to 1/16 throttle.after that point it lights up to life. not very good quality. Not worth the hazzle to return for warranty. So I'll oil up bearings and run it until it Dies !! Or it straightens out. Tried my 10 × 6 prop, too big gets hot. 6 × 5.5 prop runs cool . So I think I'll get a 7 × 5 or 7×6 should be good. I'll write a review when I maiden the plane, and keep you posted. And it's a 2.3 mm shaft diameter.

Its been a while and I can safely say I must retract my old review .the reason the motor didnt act right was my Fault, weak solder. I resoldered my connections and the motor is Awesome! !!!!!! My combination is turnigy 55 amp trust ESC , 2 cell turnigy nanotech lipo 1600 mah 25 -50 C. and 7X5.5 pusher prop. My plane is an Airhogs Titan converted to rc. With this motor combo, It is great, the motor pushes it straight up, like a rocket.the key to this motor is the battery C rating, this motor ispowerfull, and 20 C lipo holds it back. Highly recommend. Great job HK.

I purchased this motor to go in a 1/14th scale short course truck and it is great! Lots of power in a very small and light package. Runs very smooth and cool with the HK 45A ESC that I am using. Way more power than I really need and that is on 2S LiPo. This motor and ESC can handle 3S but my driving skills probably can't!
