I bought two of these for a Dynam A-10 that I'm building. I did a static load test using the Turnigy amp meter. In the generic 64mm EDF housings I bought here, each motor draws a constant 26A, with bursts up to about 35A when starting. I'm using 40A Plush ESC's but 30A or 35A ESC's would probably work fine. The bolt pattern has a 16mm diameter from the centers of the bolt holes - 18mm from the outside edge of the bolt holes. This seems to be standard for EDF's. The holes go all the way through the flange at the bottom. I'm using 2.5x8 bolts and they are perfect. The overall diameter of the flange is 20mm and the the height of the standoff (the flange and the narrower middle part) is 19.5mm. The installed shaft is 3mm with no flat spot. Mine came with two extra shafts - a 2.3mm shaft and a second 3mm shaft with a flat spot for props/fans that tighten onto the shaft with a set screw. I hope this helps someone.
I have one of these motors and I wonder if it would be an upgrade or not to my F18 64mm EDF, it is currently mounting a 2025 4300kv motor., changed original ESC to a Turnygi trust 45 amp ESC, and I would like to try also 4s Lipos
i received mine last week and it's in stock now. it's smooth and does not give me problems. max amp draw is over 42 amps. so be careful with your esc selection. it does not come with mounting screws though so you need 4 x m2.5 bolts. also, there are 2 additional shafts given in the package
A 4800Kv motor is a very hot motor and running it on a 4S LiPo on a typical 4 blade or 5 blade 64mm fan it will exceed 50Amp and over 60,000 rpm!! If you need to run your fan motor on 4S you would need a softer motor such as 3000v. You might just be able to use a 3500Kv motor without it burning out, but it is a close call. It all depends on how much load your chosen fan puts on the motor.
1 thumbs up!
I have just tryied it today in a SAPAC T45 64mm 6 blades edf with 2200Mah 3cells and 50 amps esc! The esc swithed it off in flight for few seconds before restarting. I checked on the ground and max Amps was about 55A, really more than the 34A scheduled. But about 700 grs thrust
Excellent performance upgrade. In my F-18, went from ~260 watts on stock 2025 14l to ~485 watts with this! Watch the wires where they exit the motor. may need to add heatshrink to protect. Thanks for the great deal HK!
Wow! Este motor fantastico! Muito bem acabado e gera um empuxo perfeito para jatos! Estou utilizando como upgrade em um Talon T38 com 700g, com ESC TowerPro 40A. O sistema ficou otimo, com baixas temperaturas gea um empuxo INCRIVEL! Altamente recomendado a todos na HobbyKing!
I bought this motor to use in a Wemo 50mm fan as an upgrade for the jpower 50mm jets. The motor seems very nice and solid, I just dropped a start because it didn't come with any mounting screws. I had to modify the Wemo housing a bit to get the motor in, but not a big deal. Running on 3 cells I got about 15 amps and 150 watts which is pretty close to the stock system. I'm expecting quite a bit of power when I bring it up to 4 cells, the 5000kv would probably be better for 3 cells, but it was out of stock at the time I made the purchase.

I use this motor with GWS EDF64 with some modification on shaft. Only performed a bench test using 3s of A123 battery, more than 100Watts at half throttle. (the battery was not fully charged) It must be more Watts with fully charged 3s lipo.
