Wicked EDF 4000Kv and a Wattage PF

Don,

Any experience on using the 4000Kv motor on a wattage powerfan. I'm looking to hop up a S-3 Viking.

Thanks,

John

I have only tested in the SF fan which is basically a clone of the Wattage fan.

3S lipo with SF fan (3 blades): 37,500 rpm, 23 amps, 250 watts

I think I have a 6 blade wattage rotor I can test and get you some numbers.

I would be really curious as to the amp draw with 6 blades.

Please confirm before I order. For the Wattage Power Fan, I need the 2.3 mm shaft, motor only.

Thanks,

John

3s and I'm looking at the 4000kv for a twin S-3 Viking. I was looking at shaft size and if I need the adaptor. It looks on some photos that you used the adaptor on the powerfan, but you were using a 4800kv motor.

On 3S you can order them with the 2.3mm shafts.

i know this is old, but thats why we have a search option.

Im currently building a scratch job and im planning on using a wattage power fan 400/6 left over from a gaui i never used.

I want to go 3 blades and the kv for 4s application.
I see the options to purchase the motor with 2.3mm shaft alone, but i need the stand off and i dont see the option for 2.3mm shaft/ with standoff.

Your suggestions Don.

You want the motor with the standoff adapter and "XF rotor plug" option. That will fit the power fan rotor and mate to the 3mm shaft. You will not be using the 2.3mm rotor adapter you already have.

Sorry missed this one somehow. That is fine wattage, that is a little less about what it runs in the 64mm fans I sell. The high C rate pack is what is doing it. Is that reading after 15-2- seconds of run time? or only after a few seconds?
