I have that plane with this motor and 30a esc, 7x3.5 prop and 1300mah battery. It is way to powerful for that flimzy flyes like **** plane. Cavitates like crazy starting at 3/4 throttle. Get a Bonzai or Tek Sumo. Infinitly better flying wings.
I have 2 Flaoter Jets, Clouds Fly. One of them the motor is defect. Which motor can I order, to replace?. Plaese sent me a mail with the type of the orginal motor, I can order for my plane. Greetings, Charles van der Geest
This motor is a good replacement motor for Clouds Fly. I have put this motor in my park jets, hawk sky and various other diy projects. The long wires are a plus and motor work fine with 6*4 prop. 18A ESC is good enuf.
If i am not mistaken that has a 7inch prop, it should be fine BUT look into this one:
FC 28-12 Brushless Outrunner 1534kv, and use this prop:APC style propeller 7x6-E. it will give you MUCH more speed than the stock motor. it pulls 16 to 18 amps, so a minimum 25 amp esc is perfect.
Also, it has a 3mm shaft, so make sure your prop will fit a 3mm shaft. or buy the one I suggested. If you use a prop saver, put the prop saver on AFTER the propeller, that way your prop doesnt fly off if the prop saver breaks. A collet adapter would be better.
wonder if this ever will get to europe? i know you can get it in the UK warehouse, but for some dsicriminationg reason other countries cant order from there. makes no sense.
everyone help to put pressure on HK that we want this in the NL warehouse.
What screws do i need to mount this? The holes are tiny and there is not enough room to drill them out... looks like about 2-2.5mm... also do i use self tappers, machine screws or bolts? cant see a thread in there, just looks like both sides are countersunk
PRODUCT ID: OR017-201x8 that is what I used on my home build plane (picture here under file tab with no name) if you want longer ones try Self-Tapping Screws 2x10 comes 100 in bag and you can use on horns too.
Q1)is it your prop adaptor 3mm stil not fit the moto shaft? Q2:or your 6x4 doesn't fit the adaptor? may u give more clear. if Q1: i suggest u try prop adaptor grub style (tightening with grub hexagal plushed scrw. if Q2: u just need a drilling mechine..
Q1) Yes it fits onto the motor shaft.
Q2) The prop also fits on.
The problem is that the shaft is not long enough because the prop adapter that I got ( PRODUCT ID: GON-D3T6 ) is way too big and also vibrates. The adapter is bigger than the motor it self!
This motor will be perfect with this accu configuartion!
Well, you can use every accu for this motor you want to, but you have to remember the Cells. This motor is only able to handle 2-3 Cells accus.
That means an accu between 7,4V - 11,1V
never use a 25-50c nano tech with this motor i tried it out it was pretty fast and great vertical performance but it heats the motor badly. i nearly manage to burn it out by flying it at half trol for 1 min
The C rating or capacity of the battery affect if the motor burns out (unless you under C which you haven't) but the voltage and prop size will. The maximum prop size I recommend for a 3s is 7x6 but even then my motor was on the verge of burning out. I normally use a 6x5 with this motor.
As Dangerman said, the C rating of the battery is not the problem, overpropping it, and not letting it get enough air to cool it are. When you buy an AXN Floater jet the prop that comes with it is 5x5 . In that model it gets plenty of airflow to help keep it cool. I haven't tried going up to as big as a 7x6 prop, but I have shortened the wingspan by 600mm and done a few other mods to see how fast I can get it to go on it's original motor and prop and I'm running it on 4S nanotechs and it's surviving running fine. I run it full throttle for no more than about 10 seconds at a time followed by 20 to 30 seconds of gentle cruising to let it cool down again.
I've been running 2200 3s 40c/50c burst zippys on my AXN for 100 flights without any problems...very dependable motor and lots of power, 6X4 prop is fine but I'm not running WOT for more than 10 secs. My wattmeter showed 220 watts and around 18-19amps. I've looked for a motor in this weight and kv category that can outdo this one...good luck finding one! This thing screams and has an excellent flight time per charge, just oil the bearrings once in awhile. I use scorpion brushless motor oil supplied here.
Omdano is wrong sorry, 5x5 will give better top speed while the 6x4 will have better power/force/acceleration.
These motors are great. I had a clouds fly (jet floater) and eventually it can only get glued back to gether so many times and not good to fly any more. But the motor has been transplanted to another plane. These are light, fast, powerful and just run so cool on a 6x4 3s. heaps of power and they just scream. I getting a couple just to have on hand for any 1400mm foamy or similar. I currently have it on the multiplex easy star but the Bixler would be as good (better than the stock for sure) which I also have. Tony

These motors are great for Clouds Fly replacements. Runs cool at full throttle during the ENTIRE flight. I can place my hand on the motor immediately upon landing and it is only warm to the touch. I have a few of these and have never had one burn out...use with 5x5 or 6x4 props for great performance. These are much more efficient than the 2409 motors with slightly less power. On my Clouds Fly planes these motors are loud when full throttle is applied.
