I'm not sure if it matters, but my turnigy plush esc have trouble with my ntm motors. I've switched to something better since then.

i agree. The reviews on HK have complaints of loose magnets on this motor. This is getting old, stupid and annoying. It may have been tolerable when their outrunners were $25, but at $45 and up nowadays, it is unacceptable.

You may want to also be sure your ESC is set on high timing.

Are we supposed to be running these on high timing?

i tried it with one of my newer lipo's and although there was a slight pulse, it was only one. itr was hooked up to my watt meter and hardly a drop in voltage.

re tested on the first pack and the pulse was slightly harder. looks like esc trait to me? funny its all turnigy..

im runining my plush on low timing by the way.

once i get it mounted and propped up ill put results up.

I have many Plush controllers in use (basically all I use) with everything from ARC EDF inrunners to Power 110 outrunners and have never had an issue with them, let alone a timing issue. I have to suspect a motor issue here. I have a NTM 5050 as a spare motor and will hook it up tonight to a plush and see if there are any issues.

Edit - re-read your post - you need to be on high timing...that's your issue right there.

I've been contemplating this motor for a 7.5-8 lbs decathlon from seagull, 14x7x3 prop on 5s because I have a few. Good option, or do I keep searching for a different motor?

Another issue that may be cropping up is Plush Esc's have no means of adjusting the PWM rate! I have used them very successfully on motors designed for 8pwm. Some of the HK motors seems to prefer a 12pwm rate. I have some Sk5055-320's that ran ok on the 8pwm, but only produced 550watts on 6s. Changing the pwm to 12, it immediately jumped to 1050watts!! I used the TZ85A Esc with its programming card that allows the pwm rate to be changed. The actual timing should be changed if the motor stutters or screeches at any rpm. Normal default on any esc I've used is Low. If a motor stutters, I'll go up to Med first, and only High timing if it refuses to cooperate. Be sure that all connections are 100% as already suggested, that can cause the stuttering/ screeching too. On anything over 4s, I use the HXT 6mm connectors to assure 100%connections. fwiw Doug B

Any thoughts on the reliability of this motor now that it's been used a while? Looks nice, just wondering about longevity.
