Hello Siddarth. Even I'm all up for a VTOL project much like a Harrier like 'Jet Bed'. Been testing with the 3S version on 4 cells. I realize good tendencies but at the cost of the motor and ESC getting substantially hot. I mostly think this motor won't help much. It's characteristics are much similar to the stock motor on Metal alloy EDFs. A better way will be to allow for a 'Heat Sink' to be adhered to the motor outer casing to spread the area for convection by passing air jet. You may not find a 20mm suited sink, however, a 28mm could be squeezed to fit in. Hope this helps.
This motor is insane. It's almost too much for my ecx smash. At 30mph/half throttle it will wheelie/flip the truck onto its top if you give it full throttle. A wing is needed to go much faster apparently.
Yes! I have it in my ECX smash (same as mini-t) and its ridiculous. Shim the differential. Also thr smash needs the motor plate modified or buy a mini t / mini desert truck motor plate. you will need a 48p 2.3mm pinion or drill out a 2mm pinion.
It will do a flip if you give it full throttle with an 18t pinion and 60t spur gear. About 60% throttle is what you can take off with and not wheelie on 2s 1000mah 20c with the HK 30a esc! Once it hits about 15mph it will still wheelie if you punch it. I can drive wheelies from stop all the way to 20mph. Drifting in the parking lot is a blast feathering the throttle and pulling a front tire like a sprint car! This thing shreds the tires... going to have to order more if i keep this up. Loves it! Going 3s soon. Temps after bashing around inside for 10 min on carpet was 110F. My rx280 used to hit 170F in the same timeframe. Outside on after 15min I could still touch the motor!
The coil wire's thermal adhesive insulation should be Class-B150 at minimum, to Class-H 220 at best. The magnets, however, will lose strength if they are subjected to high temperatures if the coils do not fail first. The coils typically run hotter than the case. Since the manufacturer does not state the thermal information on the product (I own one of these motors) I would recommend a maximum of 90C, preferably below 70C. Most electronics and motors can handle 70 degrees C on a continuous basis.
well what the application, car, truck, boat, airplain? I was using the Hk35a and it fried the motor and esc, on a 2s 1700mh in a 1/16 beatle, but that was after sometime of use and when the magnets went in the motor I should have stopped there,(there was no breaks/ no stopping power), just watch the temp and add cooling if needed
I bought this motor for the 1:16 SCT, and it does not fit that motor mount...
I've made a piece of aluminium, bent 90 degrees, with holes for the motor. I then screwed that into the chassis with new holes
I measured stock motor of 1/16 SCT. the OD of motor is 25 mm not 20 mm.

I've mount this motor on a 55mm DF unit that comes with the Flycat EDF jet. ESC 25A Hexfet PRODUCT ID: TYP1-25A. Battery 3S 1800mAh 15C. A bit small C rating, as the voltage drop to 8,8V on full throttle and a slight temprature rise. Peak watts 204W Peak Amps 24,6A It is screaming and the DF rotor expanded about 0,5 mm and made place for itself in the duct. It is still fortunately ballanced. With a 10 second full blast run, both the ESC and motor was warm to the touch, but not hot. After the initial "recalibration of measurements" the setup ran smooth without any hesitation on throttle setting changes. Will try and rig something up to get some sort of thrust reading, and use a better battery.

OK, went trough the motions with a 2200mAh 2s 25C battery and the volt droped to 10,4V at max. Amps at 100pcnt power is 22,4A average, 27,2A max Watts stabelise at 243 Watt. This motor will have to be current limited if the ESC can do that. It gets HOT, or at least some extra heat zink or cooling will be needed. It does get hot even at midrange, but not that bad. Now the experds must pull my test appart as I'm not one and this is my first try at it. Oh yes, it is a 6 (six) blade, 55mm EDF unit that it is mounted in, and it was held in position, so no "offload" for the fan. Maks hard work for the unit.

this is a great motor 4800 kv is perfect for 1/18 scale racing on carpet or asfault. Mine is going in an rc18r with a 14 tooth pinion. im also going with the 1/18 th scale 18amp speed controller for this motor what a great value!
