TowerPro Brushless Outrunner 3015-7 1000kv / 470W

TowerPro Brushless Outrunner 3015-7 1000kv / 470W

Possibly towerpro's ugliest motor. However it packs a powerful 470W punch and comes with the towerpro pressed bell motor reliability.
Don't be put off by the humble appearance, this is a solid motor!

How many poles does this motor have? You need it to program the ESC right?
 munsaf 296 points
I got mine today, if I remember they are 10 poles, il confirm that for ya tomorrow. :D, Ugrd

What a joke of response from munsaf, and what a credit stolen. It has not 10 poles. From picture you can see that inside 1/4 of motor arc it show 4 magnet ... this is a 12 or 14 poles ... 10 poles is also not a common motor ... PS:This motor is new in HobbyKing shop, how you can have it already the same one ?

Has anyone used this for a hexacopter or similar? Is it a good idea? :) How come it says: voltage: 10volt and then max voltage 14v?
 jerry-tom 270 points
Hi, can you use it, volts are not so decisive, you just keep it efektifní current is 30 A few volts - a larger propeller, and vice versa, the more volts - a smaller propeller.

I am looking for a good 3D or aerobatic plane (inexpensive) to put this motor in. Any suggestions?

I have a look at this and think not of the right not

I did, no problems to get the stop ring off, then gently knock out the shaft and tap it back the other way. just keep in mind the prop adapter lock (inner golden part) will go 1mm or so deeper than the adapter shaft itself.

There's no such thing as "gently knocking" a motor shaft off. Use an arbor press, or if you don't have one, you could substitute a drill press (what I use) or as a last resort, a vise, using a deep socket to keep the shaft from getting bent.

The bearings in these motors can be easily damaged by tapping on the shaft. The bearings will get flats pounded into them.

It is a powerful motor indeed. We use a Turnigy Plush-60A with this motor on the H1210 EPP-3D plane (Over size)and it works brilliantly and cool.

The thin back plate in combination with the long screws make contact with internal wires will cause a short in no time. I'm looking for a spacer for the back plate so this doesn't happen. I guess this means that the buyer better be on his toes no matter what motor you buy. Check out the hardware before mounting guys. Still excited about the prospect of a performer and value.

I'm using this motor on a hyperion su 31 and it seems to do great. The prop is 11-7gws and pulls around 470w and 40ish amps. This seams plenty for the big 25e size plane. The problem with the long screws or short plate has been solved w'some APC shaft spacers and locktite. I like the look of this motor, cdrom on steroids!

Here are my test results using a 3 cell 3000 mah battery with a 40A contoller.
Prop-10x5, 24A, 280 watts, Rpm 9700, static thrust = 2.82 #s.
Prop-10x6, 27A, 320 watts, Rpm 9400, static thrust = 3 #s.
Prop-11x5, 25A, 300 watts, Rpm 9700, Static thrust = 4.13 #s. (Best)

Running in an electric hots, with a 10 x 5E propeller ,Super SImple 40A ESC, and 11.1V 2150mAh Rhino Lipo. With stock power system and 7 NiMh the hots was barely in the air, but with this combination the hand launch at full throttle had the little plane about 100 foot out and 80 foot up before I could get my hand back on the controls. AWESOME!!!

This motor and a zippy 2200mah 3s1p with an electrifly 50amp ESC and an 11x5.5 produce 289W according to my wattmeter. This gives a 30oz trainer unlimited vertical, short take off (10') and plenty of power for emergency manuvers. It flys very nicely at 1/3 throttle.
