HK Turnigy Brushless Motors...

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Who can tell me the differences / pro's n' cons of the different HK Brushless motors?

There's the SK/Easymatch/Rotomax/XP etc... is one "brand" better then another?

Looking for a replacement for a Parkzone T-28... there's good reviews for the Easymatch G10. Supposed to drop right in, lots of power etc.

I feel the need, the need for speed!

Re: HK Turnigy Brushless Motors...

I am using a Turnigy XP 3536 in my Herr Lil Extra and it has gobs of power. This is supposed to be a good swap out for the 480 in Parkzone planes. I am thinking of getting one for my PZ Corsair.

HK has revamped their product line quite a bit. It looks like a decent motor. For a foamy, I probably wouldn't bother with a more expensive one.

The Turnigy SK series had a reputation of magnets coming loose. I have not heard much about the other motors you mentioned nor have I used them.

IMHO, you get what you pay for. These are inexpensive and hence disposable motors. Buy two and keep a spare. If one breaks just toss it and replace.

Running a Turnigy Aerodrive for the last 3 yrs with no problems. This is a 3000 watt, about 4 hp. on its third 1/4 scale plane with no problems.
Tried for my kamikazi pilots licence. Flunked the test.

Re: HK Turnigy Brushless Motors...

They work great. I have so many in my models and spares in my kit that I should almost be able to call myself HK warehouse Toronto.

The only way to get a quantitative answer is to buy them and test them yourself..

Re: HK Turnigy Brushless Motors...

Using the Turnigy G10 in everything from T-28 to 60" flying wing to my skywalker FPV plane. Every one of these motors has performed superbly.

in my T-28, it uses a 3S lipo and has just the right power. maybe too much, since I fly it at 1/2 throttle or less. But even then I still get 10+ minutes per flight.

In my 60"wing and Skywalker, I am using 4S lipos and the power is greater and perfect for the larger plane. Pulls about 50-60A at full throttle. The skywalker cruises at 8A and I get 30+ minute flights with it. I highly recommend it.
