I put this on a 8.5lb plane with a 70 inch wing span. Used a 15x8 apc e prop, 6s 5000 50 c venom battery and a castle 90 amp esc. Ran a test with a watt meter and found at 85% throttle 88.8 amps and 1580 watts. The plane has unlimited vertical and takes off as quick as you would want. Very pleased with this motor after 10 flights so far. The only downer on the motor is the mounting. The mounting holes are different from all other brands and when used with a GP mounting bracket the holes do not alien up, a modification has to be made. The second problem is with the bolt on prop adapter will not work with other spinners. They do not supply a plain nut to hold on a prop and you will have to rethread the Turnigy prop adapter to accept another nut and the spinner. Other than the modifications I am pleased with this motor.I put this motor on a 7pound biplane. im using a 5000mah 6s and a hobby king 80amp speed control and a 15x6 apc. The plane leaps off the ground in 4 feet and accelerates straight up! everything stays cool without venting. I couldn't be happier. price and performance both awesome.I just tested this motor on 6s with a hobby king 80a speed control and a apc 15x6E prop amperage was 59a and 1300 watts should be able to fly a 12 pound plane so it shold have no problem hovering my 4 1/2 pound biplane im stoked cant waitInstalled this motor in my Hangar 9 Pulse .40 with an 80 amp plush speed controller and a Zippy 5s 5000mah 20C battery. 12x10 wooden prop or 12x12 APC plastic have both given great results with unlimited vertical and a scary amount of speed for this pulse. I would highly recommend this motor, it has held up very well!
My flight today was 8 minutes and 35 seconds. I used 2778mah of my 5000mah battery.I am using this on a 3DHS 59" Slick 540. 70 amp turnigy Delux esc, Nano-tech 6s 3300mAh, Turnigy 13x6 wood prop. ground power test: 55.1 amp 1250 watts. Flying test: great performance, will hover at half throttle. Outstanding vertical performance. very snappy power for bailouts. It is also a perfect fit in the 59" Slick, the spinner has about 1 mm gap from cowling. I originally had a G46 in it, and upgraded to this because it is a much better, more powerful motor.The delivered Prop-Nuts (actually Nut-Spinners) fit the front mount Prop-Adapter but do not fit the back-mount adapter.Purchased for my Hyperion Yak 54 40e, A little bigger than recommended for the airframe but works beautifully. Maidened today.
Draws 1150W (55A) with an APC 15x8 on a Zippy Compact 3700mAh 25C 5S Lipo, Gives awesome vertical performance looks solidly built and came with a good accessories pack. No complaints from me :)The motor looks good/solid, but I haven't actually tested it yet.
Unfortunately the included parts are not complete or even wrong. The shipped package was missing one gold connector and also includes a 5mm shaft adapter, instead of a 6mm. As the shaft is 6mm, obviously the 5mm adapter does not fit! This is not the first time I receive wrong parts from HK that do not match the product they are included with...
Put this motor in a pulse 40. On 5s with a 13x8apc prop was pulling 1050watts at 55amps. On 6s it was 1537watts and 67amps. Will have tons of power.A Turnigy Plush 60 esc
a 6 cell 5000 turnigy nano (battery wasn't fresh charged)
APC 14-7 E prop
I have a wattsup 2 meter..
bench tested.. in airframe short run
just over 1000 watts
Motor and speed control cool as should be, no obvious problems or issues...
