EDF64 with ADH300 Motor Assembled 252W This unit has the ADH300 motor, producing more power, yet drawing more current. If your plane can take a larger battery (2200mAh+) then the ADH300 motor would be a suitable option.
Spec. Test Voltage: 11.1~14.5v (3-4S) Test Current: 16A Thrust: 540g Power: 252W Motor: ADH300L
Experimental Airlines: Fugly Jet
Made on of Ed's Fugly Jet according to his instructions using this EDF and a 2200 3S battery and a 40A ESC. Would not take to the air when hand launched. Acted as if the plane was too heavy. Any suggestions? Overall wt. w/ battery was 28oz. Thanks.
Anybody knows the weight of this EDF? Also, I'm starting to build a A320, dont know the final weight, but it will have a wingspan of 85cm (35.5 inches). Will these motors be enough? Battery=3s 2200mhz.
Cheers, I have burnt two of these 4300kv ADH300 motors running 4S the last one took a 50amp ESC along out with it, put one of the $10 cheapo turnigy P2627L 4200kv. Had a few runs and seems to be holding up, Now running 70amp ESC also.
No Amp tests done yet. Last review I did on this was in the AUS f18 64mm EDF listing. Might change blades and see how I go? As is I get 105kph.
could I run two of these in parallel with one 60A brushless speed controller? If not, I have a Art-Tech SU27 fighter jet with two brush motors what would the recommended brushless replacement setup be.thanks
I tried the same thing with a couple of 70mm EDFs ad an HK 200A ESC (lot's of headroom, eh?). One of the two motors burned out. I believe the root cause was that the feedback to the ESC (subtle but important) was confused given that there were two motors and they were not in sync (really can't expect them to be). Hence, I believe you have to have one ESC per motor to ensure proper timing and control.
Thisi s supposed to work with 4S batteries but in the first flight it fried in no more than 2 minutes. Is this a faulty one or what? what oder motor of similar characteristics do you recommend for an F18 Bluangels?
Thx in advance.
I am using it with a 25c (2200mA) battery and 25Amp esc. Esc get warm but not more than that. Battery stays cold. Great and powerful EDF. The only flaw I see is that the case is a little bit too thin. So don´t pressure it and you´ll be fine.
on flyjet with this EDF its a rocket. Battery 40c 2200mah gets warm and about 7min flight time dashing around. Fun fun fun upgraded now to a 2218 4300kv turnigy EDF motor with this fan, love my flyjet.
Fat chance...for the price I'm willing to eat it. I've known too many people hassling with sending stuff back and taking so long that it's not worth it. I buy from HK because most stuff is fine but when something is not, I'm willing to take the loss. Thanks anyway.
I got 2 of them, and they have done all sorts of R & D, including VTOL and even as a forced induction for a Vesper Scooter! They have had all sorts of dust and foreign objects through them, and I even accidently glued the fan to the housing once and turned it on, and they both still work 100pcnt
Did any one use this engine in a Flyjet X-83 . If you did what did you think of its performance. I've got a 40A speed controller and a couple off 2200mah batteries (helicopter batteries but plane batteries if heli is grounded)? Thank you
This fan works best if you use a 4S 30-40C LIPO. A good 40A ESC and balance the impeller. You can get 725 peak watts, 685 continuas. It will pull 32-38A. The thrust depends on the thrust tube in the plane, but it's close to 800gs. Beware that the 3 fins that hold the motor mount are very fragile and crack easy. So don't push or pull on the motor or impeller too hard. I prefer the housing with 4 larger fins.
I was wondering If any one knows what the motor shaft diameter is on this edf combo because I want to use it on my HK F15 Eagle.The F15 uses a 5 bladed impeller with a collet diameter of 3.17mm, I think the higher kv with the lower blade count should give better thrust than with the stock set up...
this product is of ***r quality the 1 i got touched the side and the wires are so thin i wouldnt put 10a at 7.2v let alone 50a at 14v the shroud and fan are in the bin and the motor in my spartes box :}
I put this motor in my L39 but overheated and burnt out on third flight. I used a 30ESC and 3s 2200MA battery on full throttle. Might have been better to use a bigger ESC. Draws more power than my original inn runner motor.
Hi david i also used this setup in my L-39 using a 4s 2200mah 30c batterie with a red brick 50amp esc
it burnt out on take off, as the specs are 3-4s batterie pretty ****ola,as the rated 16 amp must be for 3s only as it drew 47amps on 4s thats cheep stuff no good i would only use a2200mah 3s for this or downgrade the edf to 4 fins or less.
Acctually, this unit consumes aprox. 32A in 3S. I`ve cut off 3 of the 6 blades and now it consumes just 21A. The original thrust in 32A was very strong, and now not so much. But it worth the economy - now I'm in the safe zone for my escs and batteries. Don't forget do balance the fan before cutting blades. I'll thry the measure the new thrust in 3S 2200mAh 20C 3blade and put it here.
I have 2 of these. Both draw around 30 amps on a decent 3S 2200 lipo. Thrust is well over 500 grams. Probably approaching 600 I'd say. One in a little Gaui Tigershark Delta and one in a Winsky F-86 Sabre. Both run very nicely and have heaps of power on a 3S 2200. I have told a friend to get one also. Any plane that needs a nice 64mm fan for a good price- these are great.

Put the EDF through some testing last night (bare fan on test stand, no exit tube). Results:
2S: 8V, 6.6A, 53W, 188g thrust, 3.56 g/W
3S: 11.1V, 11.4A, 126W, 350g thrust, 2.78 g/W
Overall a great little fan for the price. I have used GWS EDF 64's with a much higher kV on 3S (up to 5100 kV) - it would be good if a higher kV motor was offered with for 3S use.

I got two for a GWS 262 after having trouble with the stock motors. The ADH300's are tiny but put out a ton of power. Both of mine are well balanced and seem to generate equal thrust. The plane just screams. I am using supersimple 30A controllers.

16 Amps and 540 Watts don't go together. Mine draws 35 Amps at a 4 lipo. That's about 520 Watts.
This EDF came well ballanced, almost no vibration. Motor wil turn hot on a 4 lipo, but I've orderd a spare one, for this price you can't get an other type of EDF that is ballanced.
I'll try to use it in my T33 Shootingstar, heve not it flown yet.

This unit is either a GWS 64 mk 2 or identical to one.
Have only done minimal testng so far, but the thrust figure above must be based on 4S - it was giving much less than 540g/16A on 3S.
Will do more bench testing amd post my 3S thrust figures shortly.
