Default Eflite motors

How does the Eflite 160 compare to other motors, say like the torque series, the price sure is right at 149 and some change

Pretty sure Don Szczur has flown the Power 160 in an F3A airplane.

I'm interested in hearing some first-hand info, too. I was considering the Power 110 for a certain project but ended up going a different route. Actually, last two motors I bought started with looking at E-flite and switched to Hacker as they seem to be happy being run at or slightly above their suggested limits, not sure if this is the case with E-flite.

Similar to the Power 160 is the Hacker A60-20S (which is 2oz lighter).

I've flown a couple of the Power 110 motors, one in a Focus Sport and the other in a VooDoo Express. Both have worked well on 8S batteries. The Focus Sport is in it's 3'rd year and have had no issues with it, It has plenty of power and smooth as ever. Same with the motor in the VooDoo.

I've run a number of Hacker and Eflite outrunners "aggressively". I'd say they are equally conservative in their respective ratings.

The Power 160 in practice is lower KV than the Hacker A60-20S. 19x12 is the largest prop practical for pattern on the A60-20S. The 160 is quite happy on a 20x13, and for pattern I have seen larger props used, but I am sure the amps are getting quite high.

Regards,
