will this motor work with an apc 8x3.8 sf prop, flightpower 10a esc, and 3cell turnigy nanotech 370-500mah packs? I am trying to put a 3s setup on my foamy for more agressive outdoor 3d and the suggested setup just isn't enough
Depends on the size of the plane and prop. I have use as small as 350mah but with a small prop the draws a low current. At 20C this battery is capable of 7amps contunuous. Just make sure that you do not draw more amps than the motor or ESC is capable, and battery is sized to provide current needs of motor/prop combo.
Be carefull with that much battery and a 3 cell. You could easily overprop the motor and battery will cook motor. As long as you don't exceed the current specs on motor this size battery will give very long flights at the cost of weight penalty and higher wing loadings.
I got this motor, and it seems like the prop saver can not be removed, leaving very little room to put a prop adapter on the motor shaft. Has anyone found a way to get the prop saver off, or am I going to be forced to use it?
Awesome motor pull 12amps on a 8x4 prop, runs a little hot though.

Pleasantly surprised buy this 1. So much so that I bought 2 more after the first. Very quiet motors. Great tork w/3cell 370 and 7x5. With 2/cell 800 and 8x3.8 I get 8-10 minutes of sport flying. Tried a 9x5 with a 12amp esc and it heated up right away for me at least. But great with smaller props. Also great price. All imho of course :)
These are excellent little motors!I'm running them on a quad and a Y6 and they perform perfectly. I run an 8 x 4.5 prop and use the 12 amp Turnigy ESC. Smooth, quiet and efficient. No motor mount to come loose too!
I bought this motor to put on my Bonsai wing that I got from HK. It isn't the recommended one for the wing but the other one wasn't available, so I am going to give this one a try. I haven't flown it yet, but hope to get it off the ground this week.

Bought 2 of these for 7oz foamys. Both have run with no issues for 60 or so flights. They pull the planes around easily with GWS 8x4.3 SF on 2S or 3S. Can pull 9x4.7 prop on 2S but motor gets warm. Very good value for such a low cost. May buy more for cheap fun.
