Dear Gennady,

Thanks for your information.
This market is very transparent, and if this price can do so, only choose a poor quality of Shell materials, and poor quality of the plating metal head, so, the connector is nondurable, conductivity difference.

RCTimer FTW. Good experience, and great motors. Their 2212/6 pushes 16 ounces around like nobody's business... I use a 9 or 10 inch prop... just make sure you keep their ESCs cool... this motor will warm up the 30amp ESC.

Not me either!

When I get a motor like that I get the next size up or prop down. I also get a larger ESC. I don't fly lipos near their "c" rating either. You gotta allow for the C factor LOL

I would

But respectfully sir, thats just what I do. I think this hobby is about doing what you are comfortable with. There are others out there who would disagree with my post I'm sure. I can't fly with some of the forum recommended setups. Others can. If you have tried this and are good with it then it's all good. Maybe you should run a UBEC just in case. I'm not trying to put down any particular setup (read Chinese). Everybody cheats on the specs one way or the other. I forgot one thing. For the record. I will only fly RC Timer motors in my planes. Just bought a PA Addiction need another 3530 1100kv

A 2212/6 is a speed motor...it is matched with a prop in the 6x4 range. If you are putting a huge prop on there, you really aren't taking advantage of the efficiency/effectiveness of this motor at the high 2200kv. To each his own, but if the motor or esc is getting warmer than normal, you are probably significantly reducing the life of the motor and esc. Either that or the magnets will deliminate.

How long has shipping been taking on average for you all? Ordered on 2/24 and still waiting. I guess I've been spoiled by the HC 7-10 days from ordering shipping I usually get.

Thanks fellas. It never occurred to me that could be the reason my buddy has fried two ESCs with the same setup. I just thought that the RC Timer ESCs ran hot. I actually resorted to cutting back the heat shrink and bonding a heat sink to my ESC. Now I feel a wee bit silly.
