The Turnigy Multistar Elite Outrunners are designed with one thing in mind - maximizing Multi-rotor performance! The new Multistar Elite motors are the new standard in Multirotor performance. Each Elite motor is built for a specific type/application allowing for further refinement and efficacy/power to be optimized.
Multistar Elite motors are more than a fancy name and new dark green color. They are built using the highest quality components, inc. EZO Japan bearings, N45SH Magnets, 0.2mm laminations, 180deg oxygen free copper wire, 0.005g balancing, perfect wind laid down, with 100% QC.
In the design stage each motor is evaluated for their type application; everything from their mounting, to the prop type adapters are taken into consideration. The Elite motors are truly works of art
The 2312 980kv is a very unique motor design, having a ground steel 4mm main shaft that goes all the way thru the motor to include the prop adapter threads vs the standard 3mm shaft used by others in this class with Aluminum threads for the prop adapter. The 4mm steel shaft is supported by massive 16mm EZO Japan bearings almost double the size from standard 2212 motor options. This makes this the strongest and most durable motor in its class.
If you’re building a 400~600 class multirotor or looking to upgrade your RTF this motor is a must have.
Multistar Elite is unmatched in quality and value, and the performance speaks for its self.

I have these mounted on an S500 frame that weighs 1466g with all components on-board. I was a little skeptical about the thrust ratings at first. I quickly found that they are every bit of what is claimed by HK. They easily lift the frame and hover at 50% throttle. I'm getting about 11.5 min. of fly time with a 4000 mAh 3s battery.
https://youtu.be/yx5SrVeOHT0The motors are great, only issue is finding props. Currently the only props i can buy from the US warehouses are the carbon fiber self tightening ones. I'd like to see more props that i could actually put on these otherwise they're kinda limited.Received the goods today, there is a thread of cw / ccw motor in reverse.
Three sets were ordered. Among them, the first set had a problem. We walked a claim with us.
Attach YouTube video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNhRJ28maVUNice motors.I've got them mounted on a Quanum Nova using 9450 genuine DJI props and it lifts the 1650g mass easily.Working near the limit though with a mid throttle of 685 in Mission Planner.I've got retracts,a gimbal,a 5200mAh battery and a load of electrickery inside.Very smooth operation and the best sounding motors I have in flight.I thoroughly recommend them on a 360/450 class copter.With less weight they would be rockets.Just beware of the prop adapter only taking round hole or self tightening props.These seem pretty good, they have good lift and have given the me the performance I expected for my 600mm H quad.
However the specs are very confusing and the reverse threads are very annoying and shouldn't exist as nylocks do a great job. also confusing why it says 12/14 poleI have tried these motors on 3 different frames a 330, 600, and the HK Deadcat. I recommend smaller frames 450 or less. The flight characteristics I got with the 330 was so much fun. On arrival I noticed burrs or solder splatter in the bell housing a knife and it was removed. Easy to over tighten prop nut and pull shaft up and create drag. Overall good motor might order two more and put on a hex!They sent me a defective!
I waited a month before they wrote back and told me to wait again a month
Hobbyking are crooks !!!!
Never with them do not purchase.
In other stores Honkkong or china respond to mails within 24 hours are
Hobbyking and pathetic after 2 weeks.These are very well made Motors, I have ordered 2 sets and can find no faults in themThese motors are a quality unit. Very good windings and build quality. However, they DO NOT, come with prop nuts or washers. And these motors come with one normal thread and one reverse thread. So for one motor you will need a regular M6 (6mm nylock nut) and the other one will require a left hand thread (reverse thread) M6 nylock nut which are hard to come by. This is something they didn't mention in the motor description... A bit disappointed about thatI received 4 of these motors and they look very well made. I have them in a phantom clone with 20A simonk esc's and a 3s Lipo. Out of the box the bearings had absolutely no play at all and were very smooth. I hovered for about 45 seconds because I had just put in a new flight controller. 1 of the 4 motors now has a noticeable amount of side to side play. The bearings look legit so I am guessing either an undersized main shaft or oversized race. Most likely an undersized shaft. 100pcnt QC is awesome if it works. Yes the props were balanced both vertically and horizontally.
