Default bl32 1010 kv what prop size ?

I got this brand new E Flight BL32 1010 kv 12 pole motor .it weighs 9 oz . I think it was for a ducted fan but I want to use a big prop 12-16 diameter. It has been discontinued and I cant find any info on it ...I want to know how big a prop I can run on it and how do I determine what voltage to run on it ? I want to use it in a plane but have no idea what I can fly it in ?

This says 1010Kv and suggests 9x9 on 4s so if you want to use a 12" prop or larger you are going to have to go with 2s or 3s.. seriously limiting input power.

Thanks ! thats alot more info than I could find after almost an hour of looking...Looks like it needs a fast plane to get it in the ballpark...I may sell it on Ebay...and get a lower kv for a 3d plane...thanks again

This is probably a better choice at only 770Kv.

This might work well with 13x4 on 4s?... keeps you at right on the rated 42A max. according to MotoCalc.... and keeps the 200g motor at 3W/g!


Motor: E-Flite Power 32 Outrunner 770KV; 770rpm/V; 2.4A no-load; 0.02 Ohms.
Battery: Thunder Power TP4400 (G4 ProPower 45C) (45C); 4 cells; 4400mAh @ 3.7V; 0.002 Ohms/cell.
Speed Control: Castle Creations Phoenix 60; 0.0012 Ohms; High rate.
Drive System: Direct; 13x4 (Pconst=1.17; Tconst=1) direct drive.
Airframe: Anything you want.
Motor Amps = 42.2
Motor Volts = 14.4
Input (W) = 608.1
Prop RPM = 10203
Thrust (oz) = 103.5
PSpd (mph) = 38.7
