For anyone who also hates the collet style prop adapters, the turnigy 35 accessory pack ones fit perfectly (bolt on adapter = much safer!):
Had a recent incident with the collet ones (included with this motor) popping off the shaft mid-flight! Not good!
read up on RCGroups, there is alot that goes into an airplane flying. wight vs. thrust, which includes motor size and all the eletronics that need to be matched. CG (center of gravity) plays a part, along with the aerodinamic that need to be taken into account. Best thing to do is put the time into research, lots of help out there to guide you through the issues. Wattflyer**** has alot of good info on the math behind staying in the air.
It really depends on the resulting current by your battery-props configuration. With 4s and 12x6 props you obtain aprox. 36A at maximum. So i would use a 45-50A ESC. From my own experience Mystery or HK Blues series SC's work fine.
Thanks! Actually, my concern is also about compatibility with the Naza. Seems like there are pwm problems between the Naza and some escs... Do you know for shure that Mystery or HK Blues series work with it?
Anyway, I'd like to stay above 60A.
I had a Nexstar which is a big airplane and I would believe that you will need a bigger motor. This model uses a .46 glow, this size motor is reffered to in other models or brands as a .25.
If you install this Turnigy motor, let us know how it turns out. It would be interesting.
I've installed this motor on build for myself pilatus porter (3 kg and 3000 mAh 3s battery 60A ESC) and i've already flown with the 12x6, 13x8 but i'm not so happy (too slow), now i've bought a 12x12 and this WE a would like to test this configuration.
hi guys can anyone tell me or help im looking at converting a 40" trainer to electric, recently had a .40 os 2 stroke, i dont no much about electric so dont no what motor size would be the equivalent can anyone help
So if there anyone out there who Cares and Knows. I do thank you Karl and if this had been a small motor, I would risk burning out a 30amp ESC on it. Since this is a bit larger, motor I was hoping one of the EXPERTS out there had metered or test one. I have rewind a few motors but nil this big. So any help Please. I am almost sure it is burnt out but the more I look at it, the better it looks!
So what is it?????? I am so sorry. Test Rest. OK you all agree I am stupid. I only comment on things I have done. Some work!!! Some are even BETTER than what the old guys tell me to do. I have a computer back ground. I find we make more advances through what does not work! It is the hunt for a different way. I can meter the motor and see if it is shorted to the body from the winding. Then what? I can cut the plugs off and spread the wires and meter the windings. But I thought of THAT and I would rather be out flying!!!
You don't know much about RC, yes I'll agree with that. But if that is the case, how come your previous ID you used for scamming you had 15,000 YES fifteen thousand point in 18 months and in less than 6 months you've collected over 3000 points. A newbie hasn't a chance of getting that many points legally. I actually caught you putting up your own points last week. Right before my eyes you score jumped 50 points and your reason was you were playing around withthem and suddenly they jumped up. By your own admission you don'y know that much about RC so explain how your points sre double mine and Sawdust when we aren't newbies and give good solid advice. Someone who doesn't know how to check a motor but by your own admission you have more than 5 planes and you don't count them. You did when you were Kellyann and told me 125 planes. And many more still in boxes. Tell me how do you manage to move from Brisbane to Sydney with 125 planes and all the RC gear you own. You must have rented at least a 3 bedroom house to store l those planes whilst being on the Dole. You told me you were looking after kids and yet you've been stuck on your computer every day all day. Funny in all this time I've never heard the new BS of knowing a lot about computers. Maybe you can help me with a problem I have. :-) You know what it is Kalyan AKA kellyann AKA NewToHobbyKing AKA Jasper AKA Kellyandog AKA kellyannharvay. All those names except the first two you yourself have given us in the last week The other two we already knew. You goose is cooked. You've done you dash, you're done like a dog's dinner. Now for the sake of this forum complete your promise of a few days ago when you said OK you've been caught and you'd had enough and were leaving. Just leave quietly and stop avoiding the inevitable.
I have to ask, since when is this motor so big. Has it been taking steroids? I'd hardly call it large. It's pretty common motor. Strange you wer telling a member he should use a 50 or even a 60 on it only today and yet you run the identical motor within an hour and burn out a 30 amp ESC Knowing it requires 40 amps minimum. Ithink you aren't just a liar but a drama queen too. Anything for sympathy is it?
take a turnigy thrust 70A or plush 80A.
how can i say,... go to the hobbyking homepage to the x8, and on the 4 picture. you can see there is one stiffening at the back - than a carbonpipe - and at the front a stiffening. take on lipo at the front from the frontstiffering and one lipo at the back from the frontstiffering. a gopro and the center of gravity must be good to flying.
3s is not so good for the x8. he have no power.
at least 4s. 5s is very good. i know some guys they fly this motor on 6s but.... hmmmm
So why do you need to rewind it if you do not have one? Also can you help me with mine. I crashed. When I hit the deck I got smoke!. I though I burnt out my motor. So I went to use the ESC and found out it was dead. So how can I check the motor?
Ignore this person Norbert. A complete fake. He is giving every true Pro Contributor a really bad name. He's been kicked of the forum twice and sneaks back with a fake ID and gives himself 3000 points. Last ID, Kellyann he gave himself 15,000 points. Ignore him. Actually this stinks of setup to me. He insists on knowing why you want to know how mant magnets and then says you don't own one. If you are going to rewind it wouldn't you pull it apart to do so and count the magnets then?
OK mate I just wondered that's all. Most people wouls simplt throw it away and buy a new one but I do know a friend who rewinds his own. They usually end up being faster than orginally but that's due to different amounts of windings. Good luck to you for getting them fixed. What does it cost to have it rewound?
Ok it is rated for max 40amp but if you have not bought your ESC Yet! I would go 60a Ecs. I find a little bigger, is a good margin. If you have the 40a Esc go for it. It will get hot and you will have to let it cool between flights. If you buy a 60a or 80a even, then it will last forever. (Well unless you crash like me). Yes bigger is better, but you can go too big. Like a 100 up, would be silly.
Depending on the prop mate, a 45 amp Turnigy ESC will do the job. If you do overprop it you may have to step up a little but I use 45 amp Turnigy Plush's and they have enough in reserve as long as you don't run them flat out all the time. 3 at a time JC. To be sure, to be sure, to be sure. Said the Irish lady of the street.
I've got a nitro Cub that I want to convert to electric. Ideally I would use my 2200 3s batteries to power it, but I don't know if it is a possibility with so much weight. Do I have to bite the bullet and go for a larger motor 4s?
I am using 4 of these motors for a quadcopter...I will be using 4 50amp ESC's...Which battery would be good for this setup? i don't want the battery blowing up on me..I want to use a 4s lipo, but what mah rating and what C rating should i get? i would also like a semi-decent flight time so maybe if you could give me a few different options that'd be great. Thank you ahead of time!
Hey there. In my opinion i would use a pack in the neighborhood of a 4s 5000 30-40C for a decent flight time, a little large, but if you want longevity you may have to sacrifice in the weight dept a little. Hope this helps! Post a video of this quadcopter, its going to be a dang beast!
I sure will for you! I just wanted to make sure with the battery..so I'll go with a 4s 5000mah 40c...so what's an estimated time of flight I would have for this? the motors have a 40amp max each so that times by 4 is 160amps..but I wouldn't be near full throttle..so if I was at half, pulling 80amps, what would the time be? just curious and can't figure it out myself
Its fairly hard to figure. Variables include altitude, temperature, humidity etc. With a 5000, id estimate between 10 and 15 mins. However, i could be completely wrong. ive got no experience with a motor this big on a quad.
Each motor pulls 40A at full throttle. So im assuming your saying the quad will fly at half throttle. Judging by my experience with this motor, it will around 1/4 throttle to fly. They are VERY powerful. If its loaded down, sure it will take more, but unloaded...No way.
Your assumptions on the power draw are all wrong.
just because it is rated to 40amps max has NOTHING to do with how much it will draw in a setup.
It has EVERYTHING to do with the battery and prop you use.
This motor would easily handle more than 40 amps anyway.
Ive got this motor on an airplane with a 12x6 APC on 4s. It is BALLISTIC! Very powerful! We used a HK 40A esc, and a rhino 4s pack. I couldnt imagine the power a quad copter would have with 4 of these.. sheesh. Airplane weighs about 4 lbs, and will go vertical at about 2/3 throttle.

On 5s, i would just use the suggested prop. On 4s, i met in the middle and went with a 12x6. VERY powerful!
Hola como estas, mira con el de 40 amp vas andar justo, pero con el de 70 amp vas perfecto, mira yo siempre que compro un motor si me dicen que es de 40 amp por ejemplo, siempre le pongo unos mas grande para estar seguro que al esc va a trabajar mucho mas frio, espero que te sirva mi consejo.
BUENO MOTOR LO USO EN UN SPITFIRE DE 1,4 MTS CON UNA HELICE TRIPLA 13X8, TENGO POTENCIA DE SOBRA PARA EL MODELO

Using on a great planes ugly stik. 4000 4cell battery with 12X6 prop gives me 530 watts at 36 amps. Flys the plane great.
They have only two ball bearings instead of three as it should be. But anyway for the price they're good. The lack of one BB is not so important if you're using this motor with folding prop (farm much less vibrations).
