Default Great little $20 brushless Turnigy C2830 1050kv

Got this motor and very close to a Hacker 20-20L, like a 22L.

It is quite and has very good low speeds and not heavy. $20 not bad.

Thought I would share.

I use it on my Airfoilz profile yak 54. Using GWS 1060 prop right now, gonna try 11x5.5E next just to get better hover.

Hi Sproket Yes they are a great little motor, here is a bell version 2830 of the same motor for $9.95, it has a thinner motor shaft, like the Towerpro bell motors, I put one in my Slow Stick, and it felt like it has almost twice the power of the TP 2410-09 that was in there before, either version of the 2830 turnigy motors work Great I have bought 4 of these motors so far, I Luv Them Take care, Chellie

Default I ordered two more on Friday.........

I ordered 2 on Friday and got a notice, you know the "Yippee, your order has been shipped" e-mail late Friday night. I've used these same ones on anything from 18 oz. to a big old lumbering 2 1/2 lb. trainer.
Can't beat the price, I know Chellie likes the bell style, I like the bulkier style, it's a guy thing I guess. Later.

Hi Don I sent you one of my Spare Bell Turnigy 2830 motors, you should get it soon, Your going to love it, 9x4.5 9x5 or 11x4.7 for a Slow Stick will work fine with this motor, Take care, Chellie

Hi Sprocket Thanks, I stocked up on these motors, I bought 4 of them, because Hobby city is always out of stock on them, that should tell people something they are a nice Motor, very powerful, and Inexpensive, Don just gave me what I paid for it, plus shipping, thats all I would take for it, And I just want him to try this motor, He is going to be spoiled Now, I could not belive how much power this motor gives, I gave all of my Tower pro motors to GreenAce, He is a nice Kid, and he surprises the heck out of me with the plane he makes, he is only 15 years old, and very talented, My Reward comes from all the neet Videos he makes of his planes Flying, with the stuff i sent him, Actually, I was glad to get rid of some of my RC Junk and make some room now he has to deal with my RC Junk take care, Chellie

Hi telemaster thats what I use on these motors is a SF prop, but to take advantage of the Torque these motor give, its best to use a stiffer prop , I have used this motor with a 11x4.7 SF prop on my Slow Stick, works great, about twice the power of a 2410-09 Towerpro motor, a 9x4 or 9x5 prop will work great too, the SF props tend to flex at higher rpms and loads, according to Hilbilly, and I agree with him on that, these motors are very nice, I am switching out my Towerpro motors for these 2830 motors, they are easier to mount and have much more power, hope that helps, Chellie

Ah, Chellie - you have seen the light! I've been railing against cheap and nasty TP/BP bell motors for years!

Hi Dr Kiwi Your Right ,these turnigy motors are nicer than the TP Motors, but then again, The Towerpro motors are a great way to learn E Power on a Budget, as you can buy a motor and ESC combo for very little money, I learned on the towerpro motors, and they Taught me a lot, So I see them as a great Learning tool, and I had a lot of Cheap fun with them too for me, its time to move up to better motors and more fun I like the Dons wicked motor and the Towerpro 3520-7 for my 40 to 60 size planes, and the 2830 turnigy motor will just about fly any plane in my hanger Take care and Stay Sweet, Chellie

Dr Kiwi, do you have any idea about the resistance of this motor?

Sorry - I haven't ever seen or tested one. If someone could provide no-load amps and rpm, and a couple of sets of prop data (v, I, rpm) - the calculators can do the rest.

As a real guess, I'd suspect about 0.20 ohms.

I just bought 3 of these motors. I'm looking forward to trying them. Can anyone suggest good prop combinations for both 2s and 3s for this motor? I don't have a wattmeter (shame on me) so I'm not too sure what I should use. First application is on my Rythym 3D bipe from hobby people, I think its about 10oz.

Thanks!

Default I ran one on my test stand.....

With a 30amp esc, 3cell lipo, 8x6 apc prop....it pulled a max of 20.23 amps and held pretty well at 22.6 oz's of thrust. Not to bad at all.
I put one of those bright orange props, it seemed to flatten it out and didn't pull much at all. Hope this helps.

Chellie says 9x4.5 to 11x4.7, I'm assuming 9x4.5 for 3s and 11x4.7 for 2s which should keep the amp draw within the motor's limits.

Just ran some props through an electric motor calculator and with Dr Kiwi's educated guess of .2ohm resistance: an 11x4.7 on 2s pulls 11amps with 18.5oz thrust and 9x5 on 3s pulls 12.5amps with 27oz thrust. Hope this helps.

you can use the 10x4.7 prop with a 3 cell too, thats what I use on my Slow Stick, and I dont need very much throttle either, it just leaps into the air, you wont be able to fly WOT anyway, its to fast for the SS A 2 cell will be safer, I have been informed that 11x4.7 might be a little to much prop, for this motor, although thats what I have been using right along, so to be on the safe side I am proping down to 10x4.7

Chellie, you beast! Do you know how many amps you're pulling, and is that an 11x4.7 apc E, sf, or gws prop?
Thanks

Me and F B minnisteve have tried 4 diff. sized Turnigy motors and as long as you check the set screw on the front for tightness we have gotton good results with all of them. We did have the C3530 1700Kv one draw alotta amps ( like almost 30) on too big a prop a 9x6 APC s. f. But switching to a 7x5 APC sf cured that. And it was performing great on a 4' w.s. foamy wing. Best part is they're so economical (cheap)
