I have this motor on my slick 360. Crashed the other day but got everything back together ok. Ran motor up and it will start out fine but then make like a choking sound and shut down. Move throttle back to 0 and it will come back up again, but will do the same thing if run up too high. Getting really hot too. Don't think the motor got hurt in the crash and it runs fine up to half throttle. Any ideas? Running a 2s 25c battery.
Hi I brought two of these motors 1 from uk other global warehouse both when connected just stutter n wont rotate are these faulty cus I dunno what else to try ive swapped escs and receiver but still same issue. Help thx
I have 6 to 7 grub screw missing. only noticed it when it came loose and crash. was trying to get these small grub screw from Hobby King but tech support asked me to buy M3 grubs screws instead.. haha.
Terence, I've not done it on these "Yet", but on the little C10 motors I've replaced with larger screws by using a drill and tap. All can be done by hand using pliers. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
I make some tests at home.
With 3S 1000mA 35C Battery and 5x3 props.
It pulls at full power 10.77 Amps and 115Watts :-)
So if u build a Quadcopter with this setup u need at least a Battery with 1000mA and 35C
building a turnigy micro quad
ok i cut to more wire short enough to reach the board. now i cant solder it to the board it not taking the solder it like repelling it! what can i do? using the turnigy motor. fo i have to take apart he motor? if so how? what size Allen wrench?
Burn the wires with fire....after take a sharp knife and scratch away the coating...after clean the wires with nitro..let it dry...now put flux on it an solder it again.....on this way i do it always and it works great
The motor to motor mount connection is fixed with 2 allen grub screws. They are ridiculously small and the size is for me still unclear (perhaps they're imperial). I bought a set of various tiny allen keys and I can tell you that the 0.75mm, 0.9mm, 1.2mm all don't fit. I ended up using a star drive which did the job.
My advice, buy a kit with many different tiny drivers and just use the one that fits the best. You can't use much force (torque) otherwise you'll break them, so just nip them up, a good fitting flat head will also do the job. You need to use CA to fix them anyway.
Thanks anyway CrashAce, but I bought M2.5 bolts and they definitely fit, M3 however would not fit. M2 would also fit fine.
Perhaps there are different versions... but I have a mix of new and old and they are the same.
I order these with the 5x3 or 5030 black and red props and i see it's a common thing to order. How did you get the props to stay on. After I adjusted the hole there's not enough room to put the spinner on. Help!!
Are you using the spinner that came with the motor? It's surprising that a 5x3 doesn't fit. You could try to find a different 2mm prop adapter with a longer threaded length, or (against better advice)if the propeller hub is wide enough you could counter sink the hub or just sand it down a bit just enough to thread it about 3 turns.
advise you to use a 1.8mm-2mm drill to open the 5030 props axis and then force the prop into the shaft, WHITHOUT the hub. You save weight and complication. You can ever over those drills/mills here.
I responded to you question with quite a bit of detail but for some reason my answer was deleted. Yes, This motor should workout well. The Bonzai calls for a 5x3 prop and this motor can handle up to 6x3. Your fine to use the Bonzai recommend 5X3 or for additional speed HobbyKing has a 5x5 that should work. For additional thrust you could try a 5x3x3 (three blade, but currently out-of-stock). stick with the Bonzai recommended battery size to avoid CoG or wing loading issues.
I have done somte tests with this motor and uploaded the results because I think they can be interesting for others as well. See the attached pdf file (MotorData(SK3_sv_1811).pdf).
It contains Turnigy SK3 motor data as well to compare them *-)
Dear HK, why does this motor comes without electrical specifications?
Do you actually realise that it is impossible to make any calculations without knowing Resistance and No-load current of this motor?
Also specifying magnet pole count would be very nice.
You have done so much since I first attend this store, don't stop now, be professional.
I ordered one.. it' s beautifully made and safely boxed (which is great: here in Italy they tend to BEND and TWIST fragile packages easily) and i had a nice surprise!! It comes with everything to connect it!! (connectors, prop adapter,even shrink tube!!) you only need to add a prop of your choice!!
I use them in my 2 micro Quads.....
5x3 Prop...and 3s 1000mA Lipo.
The motors get normal temperature :-D so nooo problem at all.
I just change the motorplate support.
Just drill out the hohle in the support...and change the motor to the other side.....so u get less fibrations on the motor.
it is the larger of the smaller ,,but very well made ..do you want a measurement with vernier ,i can give you that ,,but i do see its well made large enough ,and good size not to large to out balance it .
How come they put a postage weight on this that is over 300% inflated on the weight of the motor, even adding the propsaver etc and a small card box should be no where near 44grams, or do they use wodden boxes.
Did not say i was not happy, just saying it is a big hike in weight. Considering how much they charge for postage anyway, still waiting over 3 weeks for stuff. Glad they got a UK warehouse now, when its fully stocked and small item postage sorted I will be using it.
My GWS 5030 props won't fit on the shaft. Did you have to drill or ream out the holes in your props?
3 thumbs up!
This brushless motor works really for for a twin brushless system for the E-Sky Lama 4. Excellent motor that stays cool to the touch after flying. Highly recommended - www.rtf-heli.com

Klasse Motor. Die Wicklung sieht zwar aus wie Sau, aber geht auch wie Sau. Luft super rund, und zieht an einer GWS 4x4 bei 2s knapp 6A bei vollem Akku. Sind ein paar mAh raus geht der Strom im Flug deutlich zurck.
Verbaut ist der Motor in dem Arrow von Jomari. Das Modell ist ein richtige Rakete. Klasse!

Motor is on the foam Mustang span 51 cm, weight 120 gr. Prop GWS 4,5 * 4, Battery 2s 350 mAh. The thrust of about 135 gr. The plane goes straight up. Features of the engine exceeded my expectations.
