Turnigy SK3 Competition Series motors are the newest addition to our SK3 motor line-up offering the absolute best quality, performance and efficiency for your model on a competition level. Each and every SK3 Competition Series motor is thoroughly inspected and tested to ensure the high efficiency and top performance required for meeting the demands of competition flying.

Turnigy GliderDrive Competition Series motors are top quality outrunners designed specifically for use in today's high performance glider models. These motors are effectively an "outrunner in a can" meaning that the outside of the motor does not spin. This gives you the mounting advantages of an inrunner by not having to worry about clearance for the outside of the motor can to spin. They also feature a tapered front end allowing them to fit into the slim nose of most gliders/hotliners with ease.

We instructed our engineers to source the best quality magnets, bearings and materials available to them and develop a motor that would not only rival, but surpass the quality of many leading motor manufacturers on the market today.

The result is an efficient, high caliber motor using quality double shielded bearings, sintered Neodymium magnets and a string wound stator ensuring an accurate and consistent winding each and every time.

The Turnigy SK3 motors are suited to modelers who are seeking a top quality brushless motor without compromise.

This motor is designed for use in gliders/hotliners running on 3~4S Lipo batteries and swinging propellers in the range of 8~10 inch diameter.

Motor was purchased for a Bird Of Time ARF electric conversion.When fitted had a bearing noise in motor. Contacted HobbyKing and they replaced it very quickly. Have now flown the glider and motor very quiet and works well. Happy with the overall performance of motor.Thankyou Hobbyking.

I have all varieties of this motor and the are fantastic motors. I love you can install them hard touching something (like wiring or part of a bulk head ) and you don't have to worry about them rubbing on it. Plus heaps of power and torque. All up good value for your money.

Runs quiet with lots of power, 750 watts on 4 cells. Transforms my 2 mtre Pheonix for lots of fun aerobatics and fast passes.

Absolut TOP das Teil! Keine Vibration, ruhiger Lauf und durchzugsstark, hab gleich noch einen gekauft. Sehr gut finde ich die Anschlsse hinten am Motor und das alle rotierenden Teile innen sind somit kann man ihn auch in engen Situationen gut einsetzen. Leider ist durch den besch......... Euro-Dollarkurs das Teil teurer geworden.

I tried with 4s and 8*6 folding prop, i get 65A. I use in the MPX Blizzard. More than enough to this plane. I used this plane with NTM 3548 1800KV before that.
Same prop and controller (70A). The motor was too warmed.
But this GliderDrive is the optimum for this setup.

did the first 3 flights with this one in my simprop excel competition 3 (2.2metres, about 1900 grams). It rocks. pulls 715 watts static on a 10x6 folding prop. pulls about 2500 grams of thrust. Runs hot, but nothing worrying.
