Yes, it doesn't say that. But it works well with 4S. In fact, a lot of SS motors are labeled 2-3S, but are extensively used in 4S, like the very popular 2212-980kv, and 2204-2300kv for minis.

That motor is a good option however the ones from bang good and GLB may be knock offs of those motors.

Seeing a lot of talk about props sizes and ground clearances.
Why isn't anyone using reverse folding props?
Kills two birds with one stone, lower kv's, bigger props, folds back on landing =zero issues?
I'm using one on my FPVRaptor (with a DIY wing and motor tower as the original is cr*p) and don't have any issues.
Just remember to modify the spinner so the props can't fold too far back...been there, done that, not nice.

because most of us use landing gear instead of hand launch

Talon MINI FPV plane--official thread

I've never had issues with non-folding props on landing on several planes. The props just rotates a bit as it touches the ground.

for talon if you use the stock landing gear most probably you can't take off without hand launch the plane with big props, which I guess most people do like taxi"ing their plane while sitting on their chair wearing goggle

Myself and most of the FPVers I know just place the goggles on the forehead, hand launch the plane, climb out to a safe altitude, and the lower the goggles. SImple and effective.

Talon MINI FPV plane--official thread

I have my cg about 1mm behind the rear edge of the servo wire slot. Works well for my long range flights with the mini Talon.
