I've used this motor on my extra 300 with 12*12 prop and 100A esc weghing about the same as yours with good results, pulling roughly 40 amps * 900 watts can hover for about 20 seconds. Prop up might have even better hovering ability.
Lol wow really?! The motor doesnt come with a replacement shaft. What do you do to it to make it bend? Have you had a turnigy motor like this design before? Ive beat mine to hell and back and its still balanced perfectly.
Dude are you kidding me I have the 3536 and crashed my plane nose 1st countless times the design on the magnet spindle has a fat neck and the shaft is probably hammered into it making it dam strong w/o any repair its still super balanced, sturdy and very powerful for power to weight ratio
Very interested in this motor. I need an X mount and prop adapter for my application. Which X mount will fit? I assume any 5mm adapter will fit? Why wouldn't you include hardware? If as some poster states- an X mount is $5 that's quite expensive for such a cheap motor. Also- I will be using this in a pusher configuration with full cowl surrounding the motor. I read some are having problems with heat. Any thoughts on this? I'd like to go 6S and 12x6 or 13x6 prop on a 3kg plane. Thanks
Hi, i got this motor and havnt had chance to test it yet, but i have noticed while most of the magnets are touching there is a 1.5mm gap inbetween two of them.
is that a problem? should i send it back?
hello I have a problem with this engine is that using this ESC (http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewIte m.asp?idProduct=18463) the engine just does "bep, bep, beep" i do not respond any sign or indication of wanting to run, use a battery of 2650 mAh 6s know someone that does not work?
BiplanNorway yes very easy, Remove C clip. Undo grub screw. Lift shaft and outer can off. Use a soft metal drift to move the shaft out. Then place it how you need it. Then reassemble. I hope this helps
Hi there. can anyone please tell me if I can use this motor confidently without any mods to it, on a 1.5kg(without motor,batt,esc) WOT4 1320mm w/s Scrach build corex and bulsa plane, with an adjustable motor mount? I want to use a 4000mAh 6s batt with a 80A esc. URGENT HELP NEEDED. Thank you in advance. Ralph, Port Elizabeth. RSA.
Hi Bebo1982. Thank you for the advice. Tell me, what weight was that Svenson Westerly? ( with Motor,esc, batt). My WOT4 weighs 2.5kg with this motor,(Turnigy L3040A-480G Brushless Motor), 80a esc, 2x3s=6s Series zippy 2650mAh 30c batt. Do you (or anyone) Know if this setup will work? I dont have a watt meter or any testing equipment(YET), and I'm keen to get this scratch build up and flying. Im new at this, especially the technical side of things. I have taken lots of pics from start to finish and will load all soon.Thank you kindly. Ralph.
Aussie, you may want to check your math.
480*22.2=10,656 rpm. Should expect initial rpms even higher at around 12k rpm and flatten out to about 10k rpm for the majority of the run. Hope that helps Sudeep
You will need around 700-800w per motor, so 4s~5s, to choose the correct motor, look at dimensions of motors within this power range and finally kv's, as this is a multi, there will be a limit to prop size, so if for instance 12" props is as big as you can go, then look for motors kv's that will deliver the power you need on that prop size.
Hello, my name is Jose Manuel, and I am pilot of F3D in Spain. I want to know about a motor for a speed plane of 1650gr, for an Q-500. I need a motor that move an APC9x6 propeller at 20.000 rpm, Do you can help me to choose motor? Do you recommend me to use gearbox?. I hope your answer. Thanks Best regards.
Hi Jason, I found this on the web and download and use it, all about motors, props, esg's and more, hope this is of use to you as it has graphs to show quick easy calculations. it should graph this motor by voltage and current? All i can give you is the name and his web, but i found it just by the name. Drive Calculator 3.4 christian*drivecalc.de
I used 12 inch prop and it seems to heat up quite quickly with car battery. I think it can be pushed to 1000W with water cooling.
Received this motor and installed it in a Great Planes Sequence. Gp recommended a 40mm motor running on 4S. I did not have any 4S batteries but do have a lot of 3S 2200 packs, so I was searching for a low KV motor to use in the Sequence. This motor fit the bill almost perfectly, the only downside is that it is a little long so the spinner stick out a little, by about 1/4" too much. There is a sticker on the motor with the KV and wattage, and also the words EDF - the KV is way too low to use for an EDF. Some static test on the ground show using 6S show that it pulls ~30amps @ ~600Watts using a 13X6 Turnigy thin e prop. Using an APC 12X8 e prop I got 525 watts @ ~25 amps.

Type your review here. Try to include as much data as possible.My plane hasn't been flown yet, will be ready shortly. I'm running 2 of these in a 12lb DHC Buffalo. Spinning 12/8/ 3blade EMP's, shows 950watts @ 45 amps with my 6S/5000 -25C Flightmax. I also cut down a 15/8/3 EMP to 13.5", it showed 1030watts! Check all screws for locktite! This is way more power than required for this plane. I bought these because of the low KV (actually about 455) and their light weight.
Received the motor just now. There is no prop adaptor and no mountings whatsoever, just the motor and at least it has the gold plugs soldered on. But where can I get the assessories? The holes you see on the picture are M3 size and have a center distance of 24 mm both ways accross. I found an old X-mount which fits. At the shaft end you also have 4 mounting holes, M3 size with a distance accross both ways of 15 mm. It looks like these holes are intended for a prop shaft mount but then you would of course need to move the shaft. Anyhow, motor looks nice and it is probably a very good value for the money but I give only 4 star due lack of information on the mounts.

Further to me review just now. I found out the old motor mount I had which fits to this mootor and it is for a Turnigy 42 size. You can buy this here as a spare accessory pack for Turnigy 42-XX but it is kind of pricy to pay 5 bucks just for the X-mount. You could possibly use the prop adaptor if you move around the motor shaft except the center recess diameter in the adaptor - the ones that ensures the prop shaft is mounted in center, is much to big. The Turnigy prop shaft center recess has a diameter of 12 mm and this motor has a smaller diameter of only 9 mm so you would need to make a washer, I guess. But the 4 mounting holes (M3) on the Turnigy 42 size prop adaptor fits exactly so maybe it is enough for centering the prop shaft?
