Hi, I wanted to ask a question, I just purchased this motor and the HK SSH50A ESC.the ESC is rated for 50 amps continuous and 65 amps burst. when it arrived in the mail the ESC was pretty huge. my concern is that the ESC is too big for this motor. does it matter if the ESC is bigger then what is needed? is it overkill? will it work just fine?
waiting for this motor to arrive, and thought I will need to connect it to the esc... poop,, bare wires,,, I NEED CONNECTORS... so with that in mind, I will be connecting this motor to the plush 40a esc, what size bullet connectors do I need, 3.5mm, 4mm, 5mm, ?? any input would be appreciated as I doo not have any clue as to what size the wires on either unit are.. THANK YOU...
I have the same setup* 3.5mm 3 wire Bullet-connector is perfect for this motor. Wires are 16 AGW, if I recall correctly. And if you need to reverse rotation, you just turn over the connector and that's all.
For what it's on the Quark specs, it's a very good ESC. You won't have trouble with it. This motor takes up to 28A and the ESC handles 30A continuously, and 50A bursts. And has programmable car, heli or boat modes. It has to work ok. This motor is very good also, I have 2 of them, never had any problems.
If you are asking if the shaft can be reversed the answer is NO. The shaft in this motor is stepped, smaller inside the motor (3mm) than outside the motor (3.17mm). The fan on the end of the motor is reverseable so the motor can be run in clockwise or counterclockwise.
Cable order doesn't matter much, in fact. Connect them and test the motor. If it spins in the correct direction, it's ok. If not, just swap two cables of the 3 that connect the ESC to the motor. Any pair of cables you want to swap will be ok. That's all.
According to the HK450 specs, you can. And this motor can keep the RPMs. You won't have problems with that. It's a matter of how you fly. To start is better to have a slower head speed, because you're likely going to crash, and damage will be less with less speed (I'm sorry, I'm not trying to let anybody down... there are two kind of heli pilots: the ones that crashed their helis... and the ones that are going to crash them! no one of us gets away from this :-))
If you're a begginer, just keep RPM low on your TX, give more pitch to the blades. My heli wit 11th pinion gives 3000 RPM. Good luck!
Anyone got a better motor calulation program than this ***********ecalc.ch/helicalc_e.htm?ecalc kinda annoying i cant fing half the motors im looking for and i cant really do any calculations with out it please help if you guys know a better program for that
Receiver depend on your transmitter, it has to be compatible. For instance, you can use Turnigy 9X 9Ch Transmitter w/ Module & 8ch Receiver , or Hobby King 2.4Ghz 6Ch Tx & Rx V2. The Rx are also sold separately.
Thanks for the credit Brian. As the mate Gerry01 wrote above,the receiver must be pair with the transmitter. I'm flying my 450 heli with the HobbyKing HK-T6A V2 TX/RX which is similar to FlySky 6Ch TX(FS-CT6B)/RX(FS-R6B). Keep in mind that the 450 size heli needs at least 6 Channels or more (depending on your setup).
Ninja is right, but personally I use the turnigy nanotechs, higher c output (30-40) for more punch with same dimensions and weight. 3c 2200. As for the rx - what Tx have you got? If you're just starting out, check out the orange systems that're dsm2 compatible. Lot of bnf stuff at lhs's using $pektrum
Any short M3 screw will work. My HK450GT kit included motor mounting screws. They work perfect for me. Or simply go to your local craft or iron store, any M3 screws will work. Just be sure they are not too long. Depending on the thickness of your motor-mount they should only be long enough to reach the motor housing but on stick out into the motor itself.
Richard... i have to disagree... the 3.17 shaft is no more or less likely to break than any other size shaft available in this size motor class... what ever severe force it took to break your motor shaft would just as likely break any other size shaft.
No problems with the 40A ESC. The 30A ESC will work for hovering and flying aroud. But with the 30A ESC you might run into trouble when pulling too much amps, therefore the 40A ESC is always the better choice for this motor. Nevertheless personally I would recommend the TURNIGY Plush 40amp ESC.
salve ragazzi qualcuno sa come mai dopo 3 mesi di vita il mio carica batteria mega 400 x 2 sballa la carica delle singole celle?
se carico una lipo 6s 5,me li carica normalmente fino a 4.20 volt,una invece mi rimane a 4.12 volt.
il problema e che lo fa su tutte le batterie da 6s,come mai?
aiuto per favore.
The 2215 motor is a great motor and is probably capable of carrying more weight. I am not sure what the max payload would be. All I know is that I have a friend who often puts his camera (Not a heavy SLR) underneath his 450 helicopter with one of these motors with 11T pinion and it handles it no problem
Hmmm, very much depend on the overall weight , KV ratting wont help for lifting stuff ..
the 2215H is a little on the light weight side for power , the 2218H might be a better choice ...
Butt: Turnigy H2223 3500KV 50A ESC , since I dont know how much weight ... This might be , too much power , and if it was , just change the throttle curve and max out * 70 or 80pcnt
Power is like money , can you have too much .
Does anyone know what the exact screw size/pitch is for this motor? I've found that it's been difficult to keep it still on my HK450GT with phillips head screws, so I'd like to try some hex-headed screws instead.
!!!ATTENTION!!! This motor is 3550kv!! NOT 4000kv at the first Review. I bought thinking it 4000kv and repented! characteristics: 3.550 kv shaft 3.175 mm cooling system(very good). I recommend it to anyone 3550kv motor. . . ATENCAO!!!! Este motor eh 3550kv !!!! Nao 4000kv, como no primeiro Review. Comprei pensando ser 4000kv e me arrependi! caracteristicas: 3,550kv eixo 3,175mm sistema de refrigeracao(muito bom). Recomendo para quem quer motor 3550kv.

This motor is on my Mini Titan, and preforms exelent. It much much better than the stock one as for power, as well as at battery and ESC.
Requires something like 15pcnt less mAh, BUT delivers more power.
I fly soft to hard 3d at 85pcnt flat curve throttle for 4 min, plus12 / - 12 , with a 40 A ESC and 2200 flightpower at 25C, and I use 1100 mAh of my lipo. ESC , battery and motor after the flight are cool and ready to go for another round 5 stars

The shaft of the motor goes up because unscrew the little hex screw that retain the shaft in the intake air side and destroy the cogs of the main gear of my HK450GT. Control this hex screw before install it and secure it with thread locker.

After 6 min. flying, battery gets slightly hot, ESC is cool enough, motor is slightly warm. I was done mild 3D like roll, flip, pump action and stall etc. During the flight, the head RPM is constant and there's little down of head speed. I felt the motor have enough power and speed, also ability to keep the torque and speed.
