hobby-lobby recommends this motor to replace 40 to 60 engines.
will it fly a 46 sport plane with enough power or will it be lasy?

For a 40 motor its ok, but lasy to replace 60 motor.

I agree, The 2826 series is nice for 40 size but to get the peak performance you need to pile the cells on it and watch you don't throw a magnet atr high RPMS (which equal power).
You might also look at the Line of Cyclon motors here http://www.atlantahobby.com/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=385&cat=Cyclon there is a Cyclon 60 that puts out over 660 Watts and is a great 60 size replacement. Cyclon motors are high RPM outrunners and will put out the power.

Another good site to look at to see AXI comps is at

Hope this helps

If its simular to the Twister 60 its not enough, i would go for actro 24 or Axi 4120, for best % and power go for the actro 24, you would need 6s cells for this so a 24-5 on 6s and 17-18x10" prop, works very good with Jeti advance controller.

My 2 cents worth
I am using a hyperion 302510 Not a axi2826 but very close and i am using it in an old Heavy 60 size trainer and it flys with plenty of power , so if your building a light floater the 2826 should be heeps of power.
As for throwing a magnet --- never heard of an out runner doing this , the faster they go the harder the magnets push out to the out side of the can.
As i said Just my 2 cents worth.

I'm using a 2826-12 on a Magic. 4200ma 6S battery and an APC 11X7E and like it very much. Unlimited vertical. Haven't had a chance to experiment with diff props yet. The 4120 would be way to large for the magic but I'm going to try it on a Super Frontier ARF, (Large .40 size plane), with a video recorder on board.

I have one on my World models mach 1 .40 trainer with a 12x8 prop and a kokam 3s 3200 packs it has more power than my thunder tiger .46 did one it. If I stick on a 13x6.5 prop I can hover it but you have to use throttle management since with that prop it pulls 46 amps so I stay under 3/4 throttle most times

Im getting ready to stick the same setup in a sig kadet senoir this week. It should fly it fine since it has a weak .40 in it now and it flys fine

Here's my World Models Super Sport 40 with an AXI 2826/10 motor in it:

I agree and this is as I stated above. These motors need more juce (cells) to make them hum. The same is true for the Cyclon or Twister 60 (read the prop charts on our web site). As to the magnets coming off, You should see my defective department (glue melts with the right temp). All outrunners with the exception of the Cyclons are designed for low speed. Low speed = torque. The Cyclons wth their NFS system are high speed motors (especially the Elite series) thus their greater power.
Hoe this helps.

Cliff is right about the possibility of magnets coming off. I had a 4120 suck half, yes half a magnet, off and and jam and turn the stator(?) about half turn. Hobby Lobby replaced it so Kudos to them. I've had great service from them, even if the service need was my fault.

Hoe this helps?? Cliff, only if I have a long row to hoe! ;>)

I put the 2826/10 running Duralite 4S-2P 5000 MAH Duralite batteries in my Paramount 46 and it's awesome. Swinging only a 13 inch prop it goes vertical, and performs IMAC Basic aresti.

Static current is above what the motor is rated for, but in the air the plane flies at half throttle most of the time and comes down with both motor and batteries just warm to the touch.

Glad there is a cowl on the plane, the motor looks so small that you would think there is no way it will fly this 5 Lb. plane. The proof is of course In the air.
