Designed to be a direct swap out for your .60 size glow engine. The Turnigy EasyMatch G60 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 .46 ~ .62 glow engine.
Spec. Battery: 5~7 Cell /18.5~25.9V RPM: 300kv Max current: 60A No load current: 11V/1.2A Current capacity: 60A/15sec Internal resistance: 0.04 ohm Weight: 360g (not including connectors) Diameter of shaft: 6mm Dimensions: 81x50mm
HK, that "test data" is totally out of whack for this motor and is screwing up your customers choices. 16A on a 13x8 prop on a 60A 300Kv motor? Prop choice for test way, way too small. Can you remove the test data from the description until someone gets more a more meaningful test?????
I found the best source of real world test data to be on ecalc****, by Markus Mueller.
On that web, I ran a G60-300 with a 19x10 E prop, 6S 6000 packs, and a Castle ICE 75. The web said it would use 49A at 5679 rpm, good for about 55mph and 12 pounds of static thust at wide open throttle, and over 12 minutes flight time at mixed throttle settings.
Here's the data from my Castle ICE after the last flight:
45A max current at takeoff with fully charged pack* 6325 max rpm. As you can se
Numbthumbs, What prop and packs did you use? 300 KV give about 6600 RPM on a 6s pack by my calculations so you might need a big prop to get anything out of the low RPMs.
RCpilot420, what did you find for your 18x6x3? This looks like it might work so wondering what you found.
Hey there Dmann, Prop was a Zinger 14x6 with a turnigy 4S pack. The exact same setup on an eflight Power 52 makes 6 pounds of thrust. On the G60 it made 2 pounds thrust. I am in the process of converting from Nitro to electric (and loving it) so I propped the G60 the way I would a .60.(which is why I tend to buy motors expressed in nitro equivalents like G60 and Power 52. :) ) If I have done something stupid I am alll ears. Thats how we learn
This motor is rated for 5-7s, so with your 4s and 14x6, you are under powered and under proped. 300kv is 300 rpm X (4s ~15) volts= ~4500 RPM. There are identically labelled G60 at 400kv and a 500kv on the global site. They are all relatively equal power (~1500 watts) but made for different rpm ranges hence prop sizes. HK shouldn't have 'power matched' three different G60s this way and they shouldn't have published 'test results' with 13 and 14" props on a 300kv motor. Quick match on US warehouse stock for a 4s 14x6 would be the G46 550kv (over the identically labelled G46 420kv for these same reasons). Welcome to HK style electric.
If you can fit it try a 16*8 or so, I have been experimenting with this motor on an air boat and have tested it with both 16*6 and 15*10 props on 6 cell lipo but both are a little under powered next I will try a 16*10 as I got higher top speed with the 15*10 but a higher static thrust with the 16*6. Both props where master airscrew brand. Hope the info helps.
I got this motor today for an air boat and immediately tried it out with a 16x6 prop, turnigy 150 amp esc and a 5000mah 6s lipo, and it ran great! the motor got just warm enough to be almost uncomfortable to touch and got the boat (a body board for the ocean with a tower screwed to it) to run along nicely at about 25 mph. The only problem I had with the motor was the mounting screws came loose but I should have used thread lock in the first place. I will try a few different props and post my results.
