What is better? Turnigy SK3 or equivalent by power G series motor?
For example "sk3 - 6354-245kv" or "Turnigy G160 Brushless Outrunner 245kv"?
Both have power about 2200-2220 W
Max current about 60-65 A
and same voltage.
But cost and weight both motors is different!
And what is better?
I've bought 2 of these. Just tried to test run one in a Yak 55M 72" At about 2/3 power the thrust washer circlip at the rear of the motor released and the prop and half the motor exited the plane in bits along with the motor shaft.
Hobbyking - Do you have an exploded view of the drawing assembly so that next time I can check all the components are in place thanks B
I have a Turnigy G160 245kv motor with a Turnigy 150A 1:8scale Brushless speed control.
I’*m using it in a small robot that needs to work quiet.
Can someone please tell why do I have a short “*scream”* from the motor every time it starts(no load at all on the motor)? and what can be done about it?
cuando llegaran estos motores es el ideal para micesna de 2metros y 5 kilos de peso con una lipo 8 s y elice de 19/10 asta me atrevo a decir que hace alguna figura acrobatica el problema sera el c g habra que meterle plomo atas
I have a Turnigy G160 motor with a Turnigy ESC dlux 160A TGY_DEL160HV connected to a 6s and a 4s both 400ma connected in series. When the throttle is advance the motor tries to start, just like it is going forward then reverse. Any idears what is wrong Darryl
I wonder if this thing would lift my Hirobo Bell 47G gasser...It's an 8 kg helicopter with a TAS24 24cc gas engine. I hate the vibrations of the gas engine and I'm seriously considering electric conversion...
lol I am aware of all of that and I work in a power electronics laboratory. 12s would only give me 11k rpm. I am a boater a 4 inch diameter boat prop wouldn't work that well on a 40 inch boat. I would love to put 12s on it and get a lot of power but it is 64mm in diameter and rated at 2200 watts. 3674 inrunners get more than that all the time.
And more amps only mean more heat if you use tiny wire. The resistance of a wire depends on it's cross sectional area, it's length, and resistivity coefficient. So if the MOFESTs in the ECS don't suck and have a low ESR and the batteries also have a low internal resistance and you use the correct wire and connector size then everything will be cool. You can have a 10kw motor running at 10 volts and still be cool if everything is made to do so.
And 6s ESCs are cheaper anyway.
I don't know why me wanting more rpm made you think I have heat issues or I don't know anything about 6th grade level physics? I just need it to have more kv to use it. :)
Fair point.. I wrongly assumed your were flying a plane!! I see so many people on here thinking that saturating the motor core and shoving huge amps on low volts through their motors is a good thing. It prompted me write something before the next posting E.G. "it ran on 96 amps then caught fire - not happy" LOL Anyway you are quite right. I prefer 6s is fits in nicely with the standard ESC's.
It looks like you might have to go back to the dark ages of gearboxes and multiple motors? :-(
Haha yea I always make sure I start out very under propped and go until everything is a decent temp. I want a Scorpion 5035 500kv but they are tooo expensive! I know everyone and their brother that has a boat would buy one if they made 700kv copy of that motor and sold it for under $70.
Use it on 120 class 81in' TBF, with graunper 16*8 3 blade prop, 2 Flightmax 6S 4000mah 20C betterys for 12S, TURNIGY Sentilon 100A HV 5-12S BESC (Ver4), comes with 60A, 2952W at max output. It's comes with nearly 8000g thrust. I love it!

Looks and feels great. Can feel each magnet in turn as you rotate the motor by hand. Little disappointed when compared to the SK 160 which is rated at 3100 watts. G160 rated to 60 Amps, and must watch this carefully when thrust testing propellers.
Fitted to Sebart 110 for advanced schedule, the power train is . . .
G160, 100HV ESC, 10S2P 5000mAh.
At 1500m altitude,
turnigy 17x10 @55 amps = 4.5 Kg thrust
apc-e 18x10 @55 amps = 5.0 Kg thrust
apc-e 19x10 @55 amps = 6.0 Kg thrust.

I haven't used this motor yet but I have a few concerns after inspecting it. There are no instructions included. There is no prop washer supplied. The drive side on the propeller adapter is smooth and can result in the prop slipping. The propeller adapter is an unusual size: 11.5 -12 mm and there is no listing for an 8 mm prop adapter that is available for this motor. 8 mm is a standard size for propeller mounting holes for this size motor.

Great motor! I just got mine oday ans will put it on electric scooter look like copy of the e-flite 160 and they working great buy cost lot more

This motor is visually almost identical with Axi5330 and Power160 probably as well.
The cables for ESC are pretty stiff.
Prop adapter diameter is 12mm which is same as on the Axi.
There is prop washer missing and I had to modify the adapter and add few mm of the thread as it was really short! Turnigy if you read this look how APCe props are thin ;)
Will test it tonight.
