    I just ordered this for my F18V2 (the SSV2 just isn't doing it :(), and since you just don't see too many bigger motors in 2200kv, I thought it might be worth a mention. Claimed thrust is 34oz on 3S with a 6x4 at 28A. My SSV2 gets HOT, and the 30A Grayson ESC gets hot enough that it cuts out after 5min of brisk flight, even WITH a big spoon airscoop right over it. Hopefully this motor and a 45A Trust ESC can alleviate that problem for me.

    Anyway, anyone else have an experience with this motor? It's a little unusual in that you can't reverse the shaft, but they sell a prop adapter that BOLTS to the can on the backside. Probably gonna cut the excess shaft and keep the spare for future bulkhead mounting. If nothing else, I just ordered one so I can be the first to report if it serves the lot of us.

    I have this motor on my F-22. It certainly gives a lot of power but the motor shaft was a pain to cut, worth it in the end. You did buy the accessory pack to mount it as a pusher right?

    I am using a 6x5 prop with a 40a ESC (57A burst I think ) and the ESC gets a little warm after some speed flying/aerobatics so my parts match up

    Yup, got the accessory pack AND a spare shaft in case I ever want to put it on a puller plane. Can't wait to put it on something that needs it - especially since I totalled my F18V2 this morning. :rolleyes:

    NTM Prop Drive Series 2836 2200kv is looking very nice there but I have never seen this NTM Prop Drive Series 2836 2200kv before. So can you explain that in which part it use?

    Just got the 2836 2700 kv the other day. Shows 42 oz with 6x4 prop on 3s. Can't wait to try it. The quality is first rate and yes, the shaft will be a pain to cut! But, monster jet performance for 1/3 the cost?

    I didn't even see there was a 2700kv model - just saw the 2200 and pulled the trigger. I got a spare shaft so I could cut that and still have a good one in case I screw it up. I think a dremel cut-off wheel will do nicely.

    I told you before about NTM Prop Drive Series 2836 2200kv and you have given 2700kv's pictures over here. What they both are same? According to my information the size is perfect of them.

    Don't really need to cut shaft- just bore hole in middle of motor mount for shaft to run thru.
     
  12. Talked to the owner of headsuprc today and he is doin research on a motor that is just like the NTM prop drive motor. He is trying to get it cheaper and without having to have the prop adapter or having to cut off a shaft

    You do have to cut the shaft....I went to Home Depot and got a hard steel cutting saw blade that fits on my Electric Drill that I hope will make this job easier.

  15. no you DONT have to cut it off. just drill a hole in the motor mount and let in poke through in the back

    F-35.... I thought of that, but that is the main support for the motor and I think it would weaken the plane structurly.
