Designed to be a direct swap out for your 32 size glow engine. This brushlessoutrunner will provide more power and with its high efficiency, long run times. A quality motor, built specifically for planes designed to fly with a 32 size glow engine.
Spec. Battery: 3~4 Cell /11.1~14.8V RPM: 600kv Max current: 60A No load current: 11V/1.3A Internal resistance: 0.036 ohm Weight: 202g (not including connectors) Diameter of shaft: 5mm Dimensions: 72x42mm
I was wondering if maybe someone out there knows the answer to this. I've tried several receivers in this Airfield 1400mm P47. When I connect the power, the receivers light up but don't blink with the binding plug connected, which lets you know the Rx is ready to bind to the Tx. I figure that it's not the receivers but must be the esc or maybe the motor. What are your expert assessments?
My guess would be that your ESC is toast, The 1.4 meter FMS birds' ESCs have had problems in the past. On both of my 1.4 Meter Stukas, I replaced them with a 60 amp OPTO ESC, plus a UBEC for insurance. These bigger birds use a lot of servos, and it puts a big load on the ESC, having to drive them all, so a UBEC takes that load off. Why do you want to replace the motor? Is it bad? They are typically great powerhouses, with no issues. ****-Metalguy
What is the recommended size ESC? I'm planning to replace the motor and ESC in my Airfield 1400mm P-47. I think the ESC went out. I'm pretty new to electric configurations for RC flying. I've been a gas and glow guy for a long time. What would the correct motr/esc combo be?
The test data uses a 13x4 prop to draw 16.5amps. What would a 13x6.5 draw (Xoar :the closest size there is before going down to a 12) as at this stage I only have a 18 amp Turnigy plush esc?
Thanks for yr reply!
G'Day Thanks for reading this post. I have a Rainbow pattern sport flyer 1.38m, flying weight 2106g and just deciding on the motor. Either this motor or the next one up a G46.I like smooth pattern flying ( glo motor flyer ) and there is no need to go break neck speed although reasonable vertical would be nice.I am leaning towards a G46 ( but maybe a bit big for firewall/engine mount)with 4s 7oamp speedie on 14X7 prop. Any thoughts on these 2 motors would be appreciated.
got that plane and the g46 love the power.but a hassle to mount cut some foam and reinforce fire wall. i put skiis on it now 4 the snow in ontario and it is alot of fun. dont go deadstick from dead battery or she drops like a rock. have fun.
Hi guys im looking for a better motor then the stock one as it gets way to hot.
I want to use this on a FMS 1400mm spitfire i have a 60 amp plush esc and the stock 3blade prop 13x9 ,will this one go well in this setup? Also does anyone know what blade adaptor would go well for this plane?
A 13x9 3B should be fine with a 4S pack. My tests show this motor draws just under 40a with a 14x8.5E and a 14x10E. Total power draw was about 600w. You could use a 3300mah 4S pack but I would suggest going to at least a 4000mah pack if you are going to push the system. You will turn about 7500rpm so be sure the stock prop will handle it.
Thx for the reply ,does your motor get hot under your test ?I have 4s 40c 3000 mah lipos .im looking for a nice sport flight but with some extra juice when needed.I usualy dont fly more then 5 min per flight.I just dont want the motor to get to hot as this plane doesnt have alot of air comming in.
All motors will get warm depending on air flow and such. Running this motor in a sport plane with about half at full power and the rest between 25% and 60%, it comes down warn to hot but not so hot you can't touch it. From what you describe, you should be good, warm to hot but not boiling.
This motor after 3 minutes at half throttle or less even gets so hot you cant touch it.I even left the cowl off to see if this helps but no ,lowering the timing doesnt help eighter it is a 3648 500kv motor the amps and watts seems to be okay on it, it runs 40 amp and around the 600 watts
From what you are saying it seems that the G32 will work better my plane weighs 2kg only.Ill need a longer prop adaptor for the G32 as it seems short it needs to be 5mm ,any ideas on that?cant seem to find any on HK.
This motor is bigger in both diameter and length than your 36mm motor and it rated at 800w max. Running it around 35a with a 4S pack will get it hot but not dangerous. I have it on a 3D plane that weighs about 2kg and with a 14x8.5E prop, it pulls over 4.5kg in thrust. I fly it around 1/2 throttle with burst of 10-20s full throttle and I get about 6.5 minutes of flight. If I take it easy, I can get over 7.5minutes. As far as a prop adapter, that will be hard to come up with. Some of those with spinners will give you a longer spacing but most of the standard compression types are all within 1-2mm of each other. I'd make up some spacers for the motor and just move it forward the needed amount. Plasti-struct or AL tubing will work for 5mm. Good luck
Correction, I mean 2.5kg of thrust, not 4.5kg. As for why your other motor gets so hot, that is usually a sign that it is over proped. Even if the specs says it is rated at 600w, that is a max value and running at that level for very long will overheat almost any motor. Try this motor with a 12x8 or 13x8 prop and it should be great for your plane. Max power will be under 600w and max current under 40a but rpm will be good and will result in a nice flying plane that can move out if wanted. With 4S and 600kV, it won't be a speed demon but with the added thrust of the larger diameter props, it will still move along nicely.
Thank you for your replies...Booostman i have asked a question i hope u can answer. how do u work out the motors most efficiant amp rating i have several motors and all could do with more efficiancy... Thanks
YES! Unscrew the grub screw at the front of the engine and the grub screw on the collett at the back and tap the shaft out of the housing. Then just reverse the shaft and re-attach the collett now on the other end of the motor and tighten the grub screws. I have just done the exact thing with two G15 motors so i can mount them in a boat. Hope this helps!
I am going to use this motor on my 1/4 scale Cub with a weight of 2-2,2kg, and are going for highest thrust at possible - don´*t need speed. Now I have tryed some different prop/akku setups: 3S and 20x8 APC-E 4400rpm - 59A 4S and 18x6 Turnigy Type D Light Wood Prop: 5700rpm and 60A Full Throttle will only be for very very short periods, since it will fly on a current like 5-10A
Appeared to be well made. Using on 4 cell, 14x8 drawing 40 amps. After three flights only slightly warm. Fourth flight all of the magnets came loose and moved forward. Very disappointing as this motor was not abused.
