We instructed the engineers to source the best quality magnets, bearings and materials available to them and develop a motor that would not only rival, but surpass the quality of many leading motor manufactures on the market today.
The result is an efficient, high caliber motor using quality double shielded bearings, sintered Neodymium magnets and a string wound stator ensuring an accurate and consistent winding each and every time.
The Turnigy SK3 motors are suited to modelers who are seeking a quality brushless motor without compromise.
Hello everyone, I live in Brazil, and build a model airplane wing length 145 cm, 24 cm string length 90 cm, weight 660 grams without electronics and bought this 3648 engine, propeller which I use for a flight slower?, I will use as advanced trainer
This combination works?
Motor: Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 3536-1200kv Brushless Outrunner Motor.
ESC: Turnigy AE-45A Brushless ESC
Battery: Turnigy 3600mAh 4S 20C Lipo Pack (USA Warehouse)?
I ask the question because I'm not sure if the combination of ESC with battery can burn the motor?
for example: 45Ax14,1V=634W ... The max power of motor is 560W.
that is a good combination the esc should be higher rated than the motor it will only deliver 634W if the motor demands it. so if you only use 560W for the motor you have a safety margin 74W. the size and pitch of the prop will determine the amount of power used. It is worth spending $20 on a watt meter and testing the combination. hope this helps.
You will not have any problems using this battery if You use a suggested propeller. I would recommand 9x8 10x6 or 11x5. It's up with the plane. 4s 5000mah is quite heavy, thus You should use a prop with big diameter and low pitch. Use at least 45A ESC.
50A ESC would be fine.
I have one that I have used on 2 different planes. It has a Great Preformance Rate among many motors that are out there. I have had No Problems at all with these Motors. I highly recommend them. I also bought a Turnigy Plush 60amp Speed Controler. I use it with this Motor and Put another in a 65" (wing span) trainer.
I give them Both a ***** Star!
I would prefer a 3542 800kv, cause You can use bigger prop diameter to get more thrust. If an efficient 2 blade prop is too big for Your sky walker reduce the diameter by 1 inch and change to a 3 blade prop.
lokidog, you are correct - it does not matter. Connect the 3 motor wires to the 3 of the ESC and switch on. If the motor turns the proper way you are done. If the motor turns the wrong way swap any 2 of the wires to reverse the rotation.
Ah finally someone metions 13x6.5!
I bought "Domin-8trix" model with same setup as Michael Wargo...and i just wanted to make sure the prop size is good as the specs of this motor dont mention any suggested prop size.
that motor with a 12x6 prop would be ok for 3d.
u will need 3d throttle discipline or the motor will over heat. that said, this motor will provide more than 1:1 thrust to weight ratio to pull out of a hover and do any aerobatics u wish but, don't expect a rocket ship like vertical.
You are within the limits with this setup, but the motor can handle a bigger prop like 12x6 on 3s. On the other side a bigger prop could effect an overkill to Your 40A ESC. Check out whether Your ESC gets hot after a short runtime.
Ivan. Click on Hardware & accessories, that will open up to 17 sub sections. You may find what you need in the Spinner/Adaptor section or more likely under a sub section of the Propellors section called Folding Propellor & Spinner.
It all comes with it. There's 2 tiny pictures below the main picture, click on the second picture and it shows you all the bits that come with these motors. It's one of the things I realy like about them, that you can mount a prop on whichever end suits the situation. That's what I call versatile : )
I looked everywhere I could think of and could find plenty with 4 bolts but not 1 with 3 bolts like these. With luck they'll stock spares specific to these new motors eventualy but for the moment it looks like the only way might be to buy another motor.
Beware 192000003 : Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 35-XX Spare Accessory Pack. The included prop adapter does not fit on the 5.0 mm shaft, it has a smaller diameter. I am searching for a prop adapter to replace the original witht the same length. anyone has a idea????
Gentlemen , I am looking to replace an ESC and a outrunner motor on my Airfield Cessna 182 55" Sky Trainer EPO foam plane . The aircraft wieghs 38.3 ounces , plus the tree ounces that I had to add to the nose to balance it out correctly . Here is the set up from the box , it is a 2.4GHz 6Ch., 30A ESC , a GC 3536/900KV outrunner motor w/ a 11X9 3 blade propeller , a 25C 11.1V 2200mAh 3s LiPo battery and I not using the factory TX/RX system on this . I am using a Futaba 6J 6ch 2.4 GHz S-FHSS TX with a R617S Futaba RX and it works great with the plane ! Can you gents help me out on picking the right set up for the ESC and motor . Cause I am thinking on at the most a 1500KV or down to a 1100KV motor . I need more power due to the wieght ratio on this plane and to keep it at least at half throttle for cruising the skies. Any suggestions gentlemen ? The sky is waiting for me !
Mieciu , to tell you the truth sir, it takes almost 50 yards for take-off and I have to keep it at full throttle to keep it in the air with out keeping on the stick. It is not that I don't like my set up, it is that I feel that the motor is not delivering the torque to the prop. Plus, I need another motor and ESC cause I have no motor operation and the ESC gets warm. I also re-measured the CG 3 times and the 60mm from wings leading edge. It also seems that hardly any one carries the parts for this plane, such as wheels,spinner and other items here in the USA. The big companies here do not know much about this Airfield company and thier products. Now I thought , the higher the KV's the more power you have? Please understand sir, I'm just getting back into this sport after 30yrs and all of this new tech stuff is kind of confusing to me. I am just now starting to understand 2.4GHz TX/RX systems and can't afford right now to build out of balsa/nitro. I just ask for paitence from people, which is starting to rare these days. I am 52yoa and want to get back in the air. This sport helps me relax on the weekends.
Well here is some food for thought....I have the same motor you are talking about. I have used it on two different models. From my experience given the size of you plane...I am going by the wing span I beleive you said is about 55". This motor would really come to life for you if you put a 4cell in your plane and a 10X7 Prop. You will get off the ground much quicker. The lower kv motors always work best with the higher lipo input voltage. Hope this helps. Banjo 742
Also, would say that you should be using a 40 amp ESC if you go with a 4cell lipo, I also tried using a 3 cell at first with the 35/36/900kv motor, and 3 cells just doesn't do it justice. Get the 4cell lipo, and you will be much happier.
Sir, on the the 4 cell LiPo , would this still be in the 25C 11.1V area and how much mAh are you talking about ? Did you have to adjust anything or take ? Cause I have just bought a .25 4042/1000mAh motor w/ a SS45A ESC from Tower Hobbies.
No, when you move up to 4 cell, you increase you input voltage to 14.8(therefore, you increase the motor RPM. The new motor you have will also power your plane really nice on the 4 cell, stick with the same mAh as the old 3 cell, but look at the battery listing, and pick a 4 cell with a higher C rate, Turnigy Nano-Tech makes some batterys with higher C ratings. If you get the 4 cell, I wish I could see the look on your face the first time you power up and take off with your Plane. You will see that what I am saying is correct. Regards Ken
One more thing...you will have to reprogram your ESC for the 4cell lipo, pretty simple task with the programing card. If you got your motor from tower hobbies, you paid the tall price, tower hobbies has some hard to find speciality tools and parts, but they will never compete with Hobby King on price and availability. Another thing you should consider if you don't have one is the watts meter for testing you power train setup, the meter saves many a motor from being burned up because of overload.
I bought the SS 45 ESC also from Tower Hobbies with my motor , plus, 2 new spinners, 2 Master Screw 11X9 propellers and other items. Now the ESC does not require a program card , cause it ready for 2 to 4 cell LiPo. Only thing I need to complete my set up is a battery charger that will do for what I need and I this watt meter you suggested. I would like to know how come there is not more Hobby King shops in the U.S. and those that are here, don't keep very well stocked up ? If Hobby King can beat Tower Hobbies price on products, then why don't they have a catalog for customers to comparer prices ? Mr. Banjo742, is there anything else that I should know before I start hooking everything up to my aircraft ? I want to thank you for your help and your time in helping me with this situation on my plane . You may be hearing from this confused man again. Again , thank you !
First off...If the ESC says plug and play on the package, you will not have to program it. If however it does not, even though it says 2-4, or 3-4 cell lipo, it still has to "know which lipo pack oit is dealing with" The program card also lets you set many other options that you will need to configure when you set up your power system, a improperly programmed ESC will make for a lot of problems later. The watt meter is installed between the battery and ESC for test purposes, and then removed later. It can help you pick the correct prop, determine flight duration, just to name a few things. Prop size is very important, to large a prop will drive up your watt reading to more than what the motor is rated for, and you will end up destroying your motor. So go ahead, get a program card, you won't regret it.
Hobby King is a online hobby store, and that is one of the ways they use to save you and me lots of money. We already have a catalog we can use to compare prices...it's right at your finger tips, and it's always easy to find cause' its right there in your computer. I do it all the time, I compare price of any item in question, and it is sometimes a trade off..."Do I have to have it RIGHT NOW!...or can I wait a little bit? Shopping on Hobby King is really easy and quick, much quicker than leafing through a catalog. By the way, your not confused, you are just working your way through the learning process, we all have to do it, but just remember persistence brings great rewards!
May I say you have been really great helping out your fellow modellers like you do. I think it is important to compliment each others willingness to impart our knowledge, as this is the way many of us learn and grow. So from one happy HK customer and pilot to another, I wish you happiness and blue skies. www.link
To "ZZAP" Thanks so much for your compliment, but I got to say, the things I am passing on to others I learned from people in this hobby that took the time to work through some of my problem projects I encountered in this wonderful hobby. That....is one of the really neat things about this hobby, everday is a learning experience. Banjo742
1 thumbs up!
I installed this motor together with a Turnigy Super Brain 40A and a Zippy 2100mAh 35C in my Parkzone Wildcat. I just had to reverse the shaft which makes it a direct fit on the original motor mount. Thanks to the built in data logger of the ESC I can provide following numbers: With 9x7.5E APC prop max power was 460W, with 10x7E APC I got 490W in flight. Needless to mention the unlimited vertical ;-) Motor runs very smooth. Components including bearings are of high quality. Nothing left than max overall rating!

Good quality motor efficient is not the best
only 17A on 3s lipo with 10x6 fold prop only 23A on 3s lipo and 11x6 fold prop
When I bought this motor I think it is much better. Next time I buy two NTM or standard turnigy motor.

Absolutely marvelous motor. You will not regret the purchase. Build quality is great. Super smooth and parts go together seamlessly. The windings are darn near perfect on the stators. No wattmeter but running well off a 5000 3S pack through a 45A ESC using a Master Airscrew 10x7x3 prop. Perfect setup.
