I am using a Tru Turn on my T-6 without any problem. Has a 20x15 prop. I just drilled and tapped a hole for the bolt.

I can't believe the cheap price I paid for this motor. So no one has seen any problems yet with loose magnets or anything? I've searched and can't find anything negative on this line of motors.

OH, Yes. Both of mine have been completely rebuilt. Re-soldered 12AWG wires, Re-glued magnets, new bearings and shaft. On one the stater came loose and had to be glued back on. As long as the case doesn't get bent or the coils damaged, it's easy to rebuild. McMaster-Carr has class 5 bearings and metric hardened drill blanks. Always buy 2 or 3 shafts, because technically they are the same size as the bearings and sometimes don't slide through. Bearings have a tolerance of -0.000 +0.005mm and the drill blanks tolerance is -0.005 +0.000mm. So there could be 0.01mm difference which slides in easy or 0 difference which would need to be pressed (don't), but mostly they slide with a little push.

Oh boy. So how many flights can I expect before I need to rebuild? Is it safe to stick this in a shiny new 27% GP Edge 540 or should I use it in a more "disposable" plane?

Do you have part numbers from McMaster so I can have the rebuild parts on hand? I like to be prepared.

I think all of my problems have come from a less than optimal landing. Before each flight pull on the prop and rotate slowly, if it doesn't feel smooth then it's time for new bearings.

Ok cool, sounds like you haven't had a catastrophic failure in flight which was my main concern. Routine maintenance is important...thanks for the tip. I'll use it to check all of my motors now!

Sorry to be a nudge, but can you post links or product numbers to the rebuild items??

Do we know if the stock E-Flite prop adaptor will fit on this motor???

I received mine today...it appears to be a nice quality motor. I'm considering purchasing a 2nd one just to have on hand for a future project, because I doubt that $50 pricetag will last. I don't even have an airframe for the 1st one at this point, but its hard to pass up a deal!!!

So I called Exceed RC "customer service" (and I use the term loosely) " to ask the same question. I asked if I could purchase a spare adaptor, and they said they had not ordered spare parts because it was the holiday and they did not want to order spare parts. I asked if the EFlite Power 160 adaptor would work and he told me he wasn't sure, but I could try it. Ummmm....wuh? Who'd on 1st...what's on 2nd..I don't know?

I could have gotten more useful information speaking to my left nut sack. In terms of service, you get what you pay for. May not buy that 2nd one after all. Comparative Rimfire motor is only $80 more and they are very helpful when I have questions. Still a good deal...hopefully it won't explode on the maiden flight.

I just put mine in a Top Flite 1/5 Mustang. Running 10s (5s x2 5000mah) with a 20x13 prop. Pulling close to 78amps at full throttle, but at about 95%, it drops to the mid 60s. 5 min flying time at about 60-70% throttle used 3000mah from a 5000mah pack.
6400 rpm, and about 3k+ watts.

Have u been using this way for a while? I'm curious about the longevity of this motor. It seems too inexpensive to be reliable ??

Gee WIZ you guys act like you are buying a $350 dollar motor!

it's $49!

I have way over 150 flights on my monster 60 and several dozen flights on my 160

The 60 got planted at lesta foot into the ground, Dug it out, got it home, throw it in a bucket of water to loosen up the ground, then took the garden hose to it and washed it off,sprayed it with some WD40, throw it in a new plane and that was 125 flights ago.

stop over thinking everything..

bob

oh ya, why in the hell would the guy at Exceed know if e-flite's parts would fit? or why would he even care? Call e-flite with the same question and see what kind of an answer you get from them.. lol
